    projector. Superior image quality sets this projector apart. It’s the first of its kind to offer WXGA resolution (1200 x 800), be 720p compliant and the only one to offer 300 lumens with DLP.  It’s the brightest HD ready mini LED projector ever produced and comes with all the connections and cables you will need, including extras such as free iPhone/iPad cables.

    Weighing only 617g (1.4 pounds) and easily fitting in the palm of your hand, whether you want to present PowerPoint slides to 20 people in a boardroom or simply watch a movie then this is the perfect product for you.

    We are currently offering an exclusive 3 year warranty as opposed to the 12 month standard warranty and a free Wi-Fi dongle as well as the option to buy and attach a battery dock (available separately from us).

    If you can afford it, this is the best projector currently available as packed with so many features.

    palm of your hand and weighs not much more than a couple of iPhones.

    Described as "awesome" by Jason Bradbury at Gadget Show Live 2011. This amazing new 100 lumen palm projector offers XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and enhanced colour technology. HDMI input allows connection to most modern electronic devices, combined with composite, VGA, USB and SD input meaning that you’re covered for almost any device.

    The projector has similar dimensions to the iphone (13 x 12.7 x 4.9 cm / 5.1 x 5 x 1.9 inches),  weighs just 500g and comes with a very small lightweight power pack. Overall it’s our best value for money projector, suitable for business, education, training, personal use, gaming or travel.

    After being  awarded 4/5 stars by Stuff TV, featuring in T3 as a top iPhone 4s case of 2012 and appearing on the Gadget show as a top gift, we think that this is the perfect gift for apple users  thinking of using a Pico projector.

    The Personal Projector Verdict/First Review:

    We're excited to launch the 3M MP180 Pocket Projector - a revolutionary product which combines so many great features! We love the look and feel of the new 3M pico projector, particularly the stylish touchscreen interface. Meanwhile, on a practical level the MP180 pocket projector provides an outstanding delivery. Fully supporting Microsoft Office files, you can conveniently deliver your presentations in the boardroom or on the go - without a cable in sight (due to great battery life and onboard storage...bluetooth and wifi!). No wires, no chaos - just convenience...simply plug and play. We think that the MP180 brings together in its spec so many positives that it really cannot be praised enough.

    Personal Projector give the 3M MP180 a giant thumbs up and are looking forward to hearing your feedback...
