Customer Reviews

Great product plus most efficient service and delivery Review by Wallafan
Super portable unit, has all the right features, connectivity is great: wifi, bluetooth, battery, 2 usb ports, sd, hdmi - really everything you need.
Great apps and a very intuitive menu.
Also has an option to connect to a tripod, which was a pleasant surprise since this was not mentioned in any of the specs and did not show on the pictures.
Gave it 4 stars on features since some of the apps required a bit of fiddling, like Netflix (Android dependant, could use an update), and some of the menus appeared in Chinese. Eventually these were overcome.
Brightness is awesome, no need to darken the room, speaker is a bit on the weak side so use Bluetooth to connect to an external speaker.
We used a wireless mouse and a wireless speaker simultaneously, and it worked fine, no problems at all.
Resolution is as expected for an HD 720P, image size and throw ratio fit a small as well as a medium size room.
Would be absolutely perfect if it came with a carry case :)

Great for travelling Review by Paul Exely
I was looking for a projector for travelling and the Polar was recommended to me. 100% satisfied with my purchase, it does everything I want it to and the in-built battery really helped when there were no plug sockets available.

Perfect for my work Review by Jimmy Thangjam
Got a Pico Genie Polar. I was perfect for my work - for education in rural schools with no proper utilities. I would say its the best within that budget. I hd some hassle with UPS delivery and Custom. But that's nothing to do with the projector as such. Much recommended.

Very impressed Review by Mark Kendal
I was looking for a small and very portable projector that I could take to customer sites when I travel by public transport. Plus I was looking for a device that would back project as well for another requirement. I came across Personal Projector Ltd. on the web and called. I spoke to Oliver who was absolutely excellent. He knows the products well and is one of those people who has the courage to say if he doesn't know tha answer. He did this for one of my quesitons and came back with the answer very quickly. I ordered my projector one afternoon and the next morning at 9.00am it arrived. The courier was excellent too. I've been very impressed with the helpfulness, product knowledge and level of service. Thank you Oliver!
