5 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The PPX1230 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the PPX3410 ($259.99), or the PPX3614 ($349.99) both from Philips or the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for more than two years, the PPX1230 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq GP2 ($569.00), the AAXA Technologies P4 X Pico ($239.59), or the Philips PPX3410 ($259.99) which has better reviews.

110 - 240V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 110 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PPX1230 only have one built-in speaker, however the Philips PPX1230 has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Very Long Maximum Battery Life

At 2.5 hours, the PPX1230 has a very long maximum battery life compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years. The maximum battery life of projectors of this type and age range from 1h to 2.5h.

Other 2.5h maximum battery life multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the LG PG60.

7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This multimedia projector received a rating of 20% from expert review website 01net.com. If all the battery powered projectors that have been available for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this battery powered projector is in the bottom 10%.

Philips Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average ratings for all Philips data projectors and also specifically for Philips battery powered projectors and found that in both cases Philips had unexceptional ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 30 ANSI lumens, the PPX1230 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PPX1230. The average projector brightness of battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the PPX1230 is 410 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 30 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Philips PPX2330 which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the MobileCinema i50D (35 ANSI lumens), or the MobileCinema A50P (35 ANSI lumens) both from Aiptek or the 3M MP225 (32 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PPX1230 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PPX1230 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PPX1230 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PPX1230 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the PPX3614 ($349.99), the PPX3610, or the PPX3610 all from Philips is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PPX1230 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PPX1230 the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is VGA (640x480).

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

At only 0.6 Watts, the Philips PPX1230 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PPX1230. Across all the battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago the RMS rated power range from 0.6W to 10W.
