Philips PicoPix3610 Pocket Projector (1080p, Contrast Ratio 1000: 1, WLAN, USB) (Electronics)

Customer Review

I was looking for a small tranportablen Beamer, which can be operated with a rechargeable battery as possible and should be transported with my pocket easily. In question came:
Tbright X100 (100 lumens)
Aiptek V150W (150 lumens)
Acer K137 (700 lumens)
LG 60 PG (500 lumens)
PicoPix 3410 (100 lumens)
PicoPix 3610 (100 lumens) with WiFi
PicoPix 3614 (140 lumens) with WiFi

An important purchase criterion was the operating noise for me. After the first power only the PicoPix and LG remained. The others were too loud (Föngeräuschkulisse) me. Ultimately decided in me for the current PicoPix 3614 because the LG me was too heavy (670g without battery, approx 1000g with battery). The PicoPix weighs 285g with integrated battery.

PicoPix 3610 at a glance:


++ Versatility (WiFi options: network, peer to peer // Various Apps // Various media: HDMI, USB, SD card)
++ Direct Wireless transfer from iPad / Tablet for Beamer (images / jpg and video / mp4) via App Mediahouse or iMediaShare.
++ Completely unproblematic link to my Windows laptop (Vista) and my Macbook (Snow Leopard) or via HDMI
Mini DisplayPort Adapter (costs about 20.00 EUR)
+ Image quality (from about 2.5 spacing)
+ Operating noise (probably the best in its class, at least according to information provided by a beamer Store)
+ Weight (just 285g) and it has a tripod thread, so you can screw it on a normal camera tripod.
+ Touchpad with finger gesture control (zoom photo) when using the internal Media Player.
+ Battery operation possible
+ Additional external battery source can be used via USB.
+ The Philips Sagem service was easily accessible and answered both oral as well as written (after a few days) of my questions.


o quality of the internal speaker for this size good, but quiet
(Power of the speaker only 1W: relatively quiet - external speaker for music videos recommended).

- Buttons not lit, but by an app (PicoPix), the smartphone / tablet used as a remote control.

I should point out that I use the projector at a distance up to 2,50m to 4,00m use of the screen for smaller groups in a darkened room (image height approximately 1.20 m) again.
But I could get a picture by a distance of 8m move to 3m height (Beamer uses side) - and I was surprised!
Of course, details went lost, but that's the resolution owed. From a beamer Store I heard several times that a video projector with 100 to 200 lumens is really just a toy (one would need at least 1,000 lumens), which I can not confirm my application (For a reasonable overhead projection is needed berträchtlich more -. 3000 Lumen. I've bought for another device with 4800 lumens with full HD resolution). To also available Model 3614 with 140 lumens, I found the difference is not remarkable.

Differences PicoPix 3410 compared with the PicoPix 3610th
+ Operating buttons are lit during 3410th
+ Can play more internal formats: Even m4v video files and TIFF images (mp4 video and jpg images can both).
+ The color saturation can be changed during 3410 via the menu, the 3610 it should be possible during playback.
- No wireless transmission possible during 3410, but cheaper.
Unlike the smaller 3410 switching on and off is controlled in 3614 about the software.

Wishlist for PicoPix 3610:
1. It should besides movies and photos also be possible to transfer pdf files Wireless
2. It would be nice if I use my Bluetooth speaker directly, that could connect to the projector wirelessly.
3. Possibly, it would also make sense that he can absspielen TIFF image files and M4V video files internally as the 3410th

Recommended Accessories for PicoPix 3610:
An external audio box with batch function.

Please note:
1. The App PicoPix of Philip for the Tablet / iPad is only a remote control, it is not used for data transmission.
For this you need the app Media House (Android) or iMediaShare for Apple devices! I spent hours looking for it!
2. The inconspicuous reset button can be found on the side next to the power! - If necessary, the device once 'hangs'

A great portable device, if you want to see a small group spontaneously something in common (battery) and smartphone or tablet are too small. Can of course not replace a full-fledged movie projectors or even daylight projector, but it is not well done (so do not understand some reviews).
In direct comparison with the 3614 (140 lumens) a black area is the 3610 really black. When light stronger 3614 it is gray. The white balance seems tuned slightly warmer during 3610 (but may also be spread for standard). I had now compared two 3614 and have yet opted for the slightly more favorable 3610 because I could not notice the 40 lumens more light when 3614.

This is a slightly revised review, I have set on 05.11.2014 for PicoPix 3614.
