Philips PicoPix PPX5110
The projector is very light and compact, with powerful enough sound to work in many situations. Low mechanical noise.
Low brightness requires a dark room, and the image should be kept below 60 ". The colors seem supersaturated, with clear reddish faces.

PicoPix PPX5110 is a very compact projector, which weighs little in the hand. It has a short projection distance, and folds up a 32-inch image at a distance of one meter. In addition to HDMI input, it can wirelessly mirror video from iOS and Android devices.

To reduce weight and size, the battery is at a frugal 1900 mAh. It prevents brightness, we are limited to 100 Lumens, which is in the lower layer. Prepare to keep the room dark, and do not expect sharp images over 50-60 inches. Battery life is also an unimpressive 70 minutes with projection.

Performance

PPX5110 has an upright optics, so that when it is on a table, the lower half of the image is projected along the table surface. It must therefore rise from the ground when watching movies.

With Doctor Strange from Netflix via Apple TV, the images look sharper than we had previously thought with low pixel resolution, much like a DVD. In comparison, the slightly more expensive brother PPX3417 looks a bit more serrated. But it is an illusion, as a result of a faint image that removes the focus from the large pixels.

Darker images mean fewer details. The advantage is blacker black, but such projectors should preferably be used in situations where you are exposed to a lot of light. PX5110 is also quite reddish in color, faces tend towards sunburn.

The sound works, but we would of course use headphones or connect the projector to an external speaker.

Conclusion

With its very travel-friendly format and low price, we can understand that many will consider the Philips PicoPix PPX5110. But the battery life is very limited and the brightness as well. Prepare to have to go for all the curtains, and keep the image size below 60 inches. The colors are a bit oversaturated, but it works.

Despite the temptingly low price, we would rather spend a little more on a better projector.

Also in this test

Asus S1

Well-chosen compromise

Asus S1 has only one goal in mind: to provide the best picture quality for the money from a very compact format.

Good brightness and short throw distance make the projector usable in many contexts. Here you get a lot for your money!
The black level is limited, and what you get out of this resolution is limited. HDMI is the only connection.

Asus ZenBeam E1

Pocket cinema for the trip

The Asus ZenBeam E1 is no bigger than an old-fashioned Walkman, and it does for the home cinema what the portable cassette player once did for the stereo system.

Ultra-portable projector that can show movies and slideshows anywhere. Add an HDMI source and a white wall and you're up and running.
There really is not much brightness in it. And you miss the possibility of playback via Miracast or USB / SD media.

Philips PicoPix PPX3417W

Many tricks up its sleeve

Whether you want to watch video from your mobile, PC, memory card or USB - or even wirelessly - Philips PicoPix PPX3417W is a projector you can count on.

Most formats are supported and battery life is ok. The image quality is good, with enough brightness for most things.
The projection distance is very long, with only 24 inch image from one meter. Lots of noise from fan and color wheels.

Philips PicoPix PPX4835

Just good on paper

We were expecting more from Philips PicoPix PPX4835, especially at this price.

Good brightness is combined with high pixel resolution, and with the ability to project fairly large images.
The image is never completely sharp, and the whole thing becomes quite flat and lifeless. Color banding is also a problem, and the fan is a bit noisy.

BenQ GS1

Watch movies wherever you want

BenQ GS1 is a Columbi egg of a projector, which makes it possible to take the great movie experiences out into the world.

Takes up less space than even a small TV, but provides a great image with a short projector distance. Can play directly from USB key or Android mobile, thanks to built-in Android media player.
It costs like a full-fledged projector. It is not possible to play all types of movies, and a mouse and keyboard are often required. The brightness is limited - but hey, it can run for three hours on batteries!
