Picture Quality

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The quality on this projector were very impressive. In low light settings, the projector did an amazing job producing videos at 1080p to 720p. In most cases, it would be at 720p. The color and contrast were good as the quality seemed to be more like a Television at home. Images were not blurry or pixelated. There were very few scaling artifacts in our test with the LED Showtime 3D which is a plus since a lot of picos this is a major weakness in their LED engine.

Conclusion

The AAXA LED Showtime 3D is a strong, competitive projector with its high-end LED engine. Retailed at $499 street price, this projector is not too pricey for most pico projectors. You will be getting the most out of your money purchasing this projector.

New Pico for iPhone 4 and 4s

featured, HandHeld

We’ve seen many iPhone 4 and 4s pico projectors on the market and recently this is the newest projector to hit the consumer marketplace. The Pico Genie A100 is a 15 lumen handheld iPhone only projector. Very similar to others like Brookstone and 3M models. The Pico Genie comes with 2 W speakers which is very loud for such a small handheld device. With 15 lumens only, this pico will be needed in very dim rooms as the brightness is just not there yet.

Con: Only works with iPhone 4 and 4s. Low brightness even when pico technology is advancing.

Pro: Great built-in speakers. Very lightweight and small. Perfect travel companion.
