  • [Updated] Selecting The Most Suitable Projector: A Personal Projector Guide

    Our Image Quality Report - The Results

    When choosing an LED portable projector, one of the most important factors to consider is image quality. Often this is judged on brightness (lumens) alone, but it is crucial that other related specification details are evaluated too. For example, we assess contrast ratio, resolution, DLP capability, lens type, design/build and independent reviews – in addition to the projector’s luminosity. For example, the Pico Genie P100 is not the only 85 lumen projector available, yet the image quality it provides is far superior due to brightness on battery and excellent build quality.


    Based on the specifications for each of our products, we have ranked our current products according to their overall image quality - see below. This allows you to conveniently compare the image quality of our portable projectors. Please note that the following ranking reflects image quality alone and does not reflect other features such as size and connectivity.

  • CES 2011 & Latest Review of the iGO UP2020

    Last week, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 was held in Las Vegas, with a whole host of gadgets and gizmos grabbing our attention. We loved the look of the Electric ford focus, the hundreds of new tablets and how could we forget the Lady Gaga Polaroid photo sunglasses(!).

    On the pocket projector front, 3D ready pocket projectors made an appearance and the award winning new iGo UP2020 was on show in the South Hall. We really feel it was one of the big stars of CES, and although we may be a little biased as we love all things to do with pocket projection, praise for the iGo UP2020 is being sung from all corners - recently appearing on 'BBC's Something for the Weekend' (see our blog article).

    In fact, check out the latest review just in from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, who agree that this mini projector really lives up to the Design and Engineering award it received from CES Innovations 2011. Highlights:

    • 'the best we have tested so far in terms of combining great connectivity with true portability'
    • 'the colours are vibrant and the contrast is great'
    • 'One of the best things about this pico is the connectivity options'
    • 'this pico has a lot going for it, not least its true pocketability and remarkably reasonable price'

    You can read the Chartered Institute for IT review of the iGo UP2020 in full, here.

    Find out more about the iGo UP2020 and why everyone is going ‘Gaga’ for it!


  • Something for the Weekend love the iGo UP2020 pocket projector

    Tim Lovejoy on his weekly roundup of Gadgets covered the iGo UP2020 model on this morning's show.

    Tim mentioned he loves the idea of the iGo pocket projector and said the new iGo, which is no larger than a normal mobile phone, was one of the best projectors they've seen yet and is really incredible quality.

    Something for the Weekend have reviewed many pocket projectors in the past but thought that "the quality on this model was quite incredible". This is probably due to the DLP image quality and its design for which it has won prestigious awards such as the international CES Design Award so this is certainly the pocket projector to set the standard.

    Tim said the real appeal of this particular projector was the amazing picture quality. He also noted that pocket projectors are appealing because they are getting smaller and smaller and yet they allow you to share personal content in a much easier way. They can be used as a business tool as well as for personal content and can be used for presentations or to watch films, take stuff off your phone, PC and share it with whoever you want via multiple many connectivity options including HDMI and HDMI mini.

    Overall, the BBC seemed to think the iGo UP2020 was a great portable LED projector and we think there is nothing in this price bracket that gets anywhere near it at this quality level especially now all the cables (VGA, AV composite, USB) are included free of charge.

  • 3 Groundbreaking New Projectors (Press Release)


    Three groundbreaking LED Pocket Projectors enter the market: wifi, windows, DLP, £99...

    It’s easy to see why Pacific Media Research, specialists in the world of micro projection and LED projectors, heralded this year as the year of the LED Pocket Projector. This year, there have been some interesting breakthroughs in terms of price, picture quality and features such as wifi and the ability to surf the internet directly from a pocket projector without any other device. It’s also great to finally see such impressive projectors now coming to market in the UK and Europe.

    Personal Projector Ltd, the LED and pocket projector specialists, have just announced the launch of 3 exciting new pico projectors ranging from a new £99 pico projector with keystone correction to a new ultra sharp DLP pocket projector with Flip cam connectivity plus the world’s first Windows CE wifi pocket projector with wifi keyboard/mouse.

    All 3 models are available now for pre-order at www.personalprojector.co.uk. Read on for more info.

    1. iGo UP2020 DLP Flip-cam enabled pocket projector: stylish delivery of DLP

    The new iGo LED mini projector is a unique mid-range pocket projector which uses sophisticated DLP technology (Digital Light Processing). This provides a higher contrast ratio and sharper images for watching movies or viewing photos or slides and it offers 20 lumens of brightness.

    This projector is also extremely well made and is of a superior build quality for a projector in this category.

    Not only is this pocket projector compatible with the incredibly popular Flip camcorder, it is remarkably small and light with numerous connectivity options such as iPad, Flip cam, iphone 4 (cable supplied separately). As this is designed to work with the ever popular Flip camcorder simplicity is the key with this projector making transferring, storing and projecting videos, photos or slides a doddle. The iGo supports Micro SD memory cards/micro USB as well as mini HDMI and VGA.

    Portable, pocket-sized with sophisticated DLP, at only £249 inc vat is highly recommended. Pre-order here.

    2. i500 Wifi Windows CE with wifi keyboard/mouse

    The i500 is another impressive new pocket projector with a whole host of unique features.

    This projector is ideal for delivering business presentations in controlled lighting conditions, with 30 lumens, built in Windows Mobile and a Wi-Fi keyboard and mouse. Portability is maximized like never before. Not only does the i500 support Word, Excel, PPT and PDF, the user is able to surf the web (mobile enabled sites) and store data/media on the 2GB internal memory or through the micro SD slot. The wifi keyboard enables you to drop a projector anywhere and start using windows with an internet connection anywhere.

    The i500 is available exclusively from www.personalprojector.co.uk. Pre-order here.

    3. Adapt Pico Play: Pocket projector: World’s first pico projector with keystone correction for £99 arrives in UK

    The Pico Play is the world’s first pico projector with keystone correction and is the first to break the magical £99 inc vat price bracket without sacrificing quality so it’s sure to become one of the most popular pico projection gifts this Christmas.

    The first pico projectors came out over 2 years ago and were launched at around £299 so the new price tag of £99 inc vat is a real breakthrough in both price and features. The Pico Play can claim several world firsts: – it’s the first under £100, first with keystone correction and it’s the smallest and lightest LED projector made to date.

    Its real unique feature is it’s the first pico projector to have keystone correction onboard, a feature normally only seen on high end projectors. The keystone feature means the image maintains a perfect square without any distortion when the projector is tilted at an angle or when it’s on its mini inbuilt stand. Coupled with this, the projector includes a standard SD card, rather than a micro SD card slot, so you can easily transfer from cameras and camcorders directly onto the projector (without the need for a PC).

    The projector is aimed at consumers who want to share movies or photos and is also the ideal gift for anyone with a smartphone wanting to share videos on a much larger screen. Its high quality build and feature packed specification mean it’s sure to be a big hit this Christmas. Pre-order here.


    - Keystone correction (adjustable viewing angles)

    - 8 lumens

    - 6” to 50” screen

    - SD card (Standard, allows micro sd card adaptors)

    - 0.5w speakers
