PicoPix PPX3417W differs from many other pocket projectors by being a real multimedia machine. In addition to the HDMI input also supporting MHL which is important for getting picture from Android phones, it can also play video files directly from an SD card or USB memory.
A remote control is included, which simplifies use. Here is also the option to set brightness and choose between different image modes. Also «Bright mode», which provides extra bright images, which then reduces the battery life to from 2 to 1.5 hours.
The projector has a long throw distance, we had to place it about twice as far away from the wall as with the nearest, and had to 2.5 meters away to get a 60 inch image.
The image is brighter than the faintest, roughly on par with the Asus S1. This projector can be used in a room in the middle of the day if the curtains screen well. The pixel resolution in standard DVD quality is not impressive in itself, but you can live in movies and TV series here. The pictures are sharp, and the colors are lifelike.
The sound is ok but does not impress anyone. It is as one would expect from a 1 watt speaker.
The biggest cut in the sea with the PicoPix PPX3417W is slightly annoying fan noise.
There are few other projectors that can boast the same functionality as the Philips PicoPix PPX3417W. In addition to HDMi input, it can stream video wirelessly with an associated Wi-Fi dongle, and it also plays video files from USB memory and SD card. A remote control makes it easy to use.
The image quality is surprisingly good, the brightness is just inside to work well in most situations. The disadvantage is a very long throw distance in relation to the image size, which limits the use if space is tight. We also charge for fan noise.
