The Optoma PK301 carries many of the features of a larger projector in a tiny package, and even its styling resembles that of a much larger machine, several reviewers note. They praise the PK301's crisp, smooth images, multiple inputs, relatively...

One of the better pico projectors around, undoubtedly – but you still have to trade off a lot in performance terms for that pocket-friendly size.Best offers for the Optoma PK301 Pico ProjectoreBay.co.uk £299.00 Pixmania £299.00 Misco...

The Optoma PK301 projector’s brightness is at least as compelling as the 3M MPro150’s integrated software suite. Road warriors never know what type of environment they’ll be making their pitch in, and the PK301 is much more forgiving...

The PK301's price point is on the more expensive side with a MSRP $399. Although you can get Pico projectors for a lot less money, you generally don't get as many features, and brightness is usually much less. Not to mention the resolution of...

The Optoma PK301 Pico Pocket Projector is the brightest pico projector yet, but it's a study in tradeoffs between brightness and size, weight, and battery life. Buy it...

When we first saw a palm-sized pico projector a couple of years ago, we were unimpressed. My, how things have changed! We took the Optoma PK301 Pico Pocket Projector for a spin, and it's vastly improved over its predecessors. While it's not...

Dans le noir, le PK301 s'en sort bien quel que soit le contenu vidéo proposé. Une fois la lumière allumée, il faut réduire la zone de projection pour voir les images, surtout si ces dernières sont sombres. En...
