Pocket Projectors

Pocket projectors are gaining in popularity these days because of their ability to display images and videos on the wall without any monitors. As the name suggests, it's a miniature projector that can be easily taken to places. The price range of this device is from $200 to $350. With this price range, the pocket projector costs only 50% less than regular projectors.

While these projectors are light and not as expensive compared to regular projectors, the gadget does have some disadvantages. Among them is its short battery life. Pocket projectors will last only 120 minutes or shorter depending on the quality of image or videos. Another disadvantage is the screen size. Regular projectors can easily emulate 1/2 of the regular theater. Pocket projectors, on the other hand, will only display up to 50 inches. There is also an issue on lighting. Most, if not all, pocket projectors will require darker locations so that the image will be easily displayed.

But even with the disadvantages, a pocket projector is still a good product for businesses who wants to have a lighter projector that can be used on the go. It's just a matter of selecting the right pocket projector. In this case, it's highly recommended to look for products that came out from well known manufacturers. Aside from product support, reliability and durability is always an issue for such a small device. It's also recommended to consider a pocket projector with an internal memory or can hold a memory card. This will eliminate the need for computers or other sources.
