    All customers are now able to use our new 'Compare Projectors' facility on personalprojector.co.uk. This great comparison feature allows you to line up the products you are interested in against one another and see all their features compared in a simple table. Designed to provide you with more information in an easy format, the 'Compare Projectors' facility will really make those difficult buying decisions so much easier as you can assess which product fits your requirements best.

    We've put together a step by step guide on using the Comparison tool...

    1. On the bottom of each product you will see the "Compare" button (as below)...


    In order to start comparing projectors click 'Compare' on the products which you wish to compare. This will then add the projectors to a private list.

    2. Once you have selected all the products you would like to compare. Scroll to the top of the page and click 'Compare' to get started.


    3. You will now be taken to the comparison table where you can analyse the products you have selected, side by side. Below we have taken a snippet from the Pico Genie M550 and Pico Genie M400 Pro comparison table - see how it helpfully allows you to compare product specifications.



    We hope that you find the 'Compare Projectors' facility useful. Head over to our range of projectors to start comparing! You may also find our Image Quality Report blog useful which ranks our products according to the image quality they provide.

    It's also worth noting the benefits of all of the projectors:-

    - Fast boot. Switch projector on or off in less than 5 secs without risking bulb damage

    - Can Pass through a TV out: act as a pass through system for any electronic device with a video out or TV out (RCA yellow cables) which means you can project from portable DVD players, games consoles, mobile phones etc

    - Are Environmentally friendly: are far greener than older projectors with no need to replace expensive mercury bulbs, and have less power comsumption

    - Have lower total cost of ownership than older projectors as bulbs last significantly longer, with no need to worry about filters or dust.

    - Have a 1-2 hour battery life - great for when there is a powercut or no plug/powersource and means you don't have wires everywhere

    - Improve heath and safety by not having to carry around a heavy laptop and projector, and choose one lightweight unit instead.

    - Increase sharing of content (how many times have you listened to someone go through a presentation and just seen the back of the laptop/ mobile)

    Ultimately, all the products are incredible advances in micro projection and will help deliver the wow factor to whoever uses/sees them. Overall, the final choice of which pocket projector to buy has come down to:

    - If you're a business user often working heavily with PowerPoint and prefer to carry a laptop around then most users will need the 3m micro projector, it includes a handy zoom feature. However those who can't predict their lighting conditions might benefit from the extra brightness of the  Adapt 305 and be content with saving powerpoint files as jpg directly from ppt.

    - If you're either a consumer or business user wishing to "Project and
    Go" just about anywhere and do impromptu presentations, watch a video or playback photos then most users will prefer the Adapt 305. It can fit into your pocket, and with 4gb of onboard memory you won't need to carry around a laptop.

    - Users who need extra brightness than a pocket projector but dont want to carry around a heavy traditional bulb projector would would like the Adapt 450 Pro/Adapt 450 palm projector as it has a much larger screen size (150 inches) and includes 2x 2w speakers and offers the best connectivity options of any projector on the market. You also have the added benefit of Digital TV anywhere (Adapt 450 Pro)
