1 Reason For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The 3M MP225 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the MP225 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq GP2[plb_1453630_price], and the AAXA Technologies P300 Pico[plb_1816043_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 32 ANSI lumens, the 3M MP225 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Battery powered projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MP225 have projector brightnesss of between 20 ANSI lumens and 5,500 ANSI lumens.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P[plb_1924035_price] (35 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma DH1009[plb_2529255_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Average Battery Life (max)

The 3M MP225 has a fairly standard battery life (max) (2 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the MP225.

Multimedia projectors with a longer battery life (max) that might be worth considering include the LG PG60[plb_1628190_price] (2.5h) which is also higher rated.
