5 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Philips PPX3410/CN[plb_3174869_price], or the Optoma DH1009[plb_2529255_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips PPX1230/EU has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the PPX1230/EU also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including the Benq GP2[plb_1453630_price], the AAXA Technologies P300 Pico[plb_1816043_price], or the Philips PPX2340/CN[plb_3175095_price] which has better reviews.

Very Long Battery Life (max)

The average battery life (max) of comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PPX1230/EU is 1.9h, and the battery life (max)s range from 1h to 2.5h. When compared to other projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the Philips PPX1230/EU's battery life (max) of 2.5 hours is one of the longest.

We compared this projector to all the other 2.5h maximum battery life projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Aiptek PocketCinema N100[plb_2128697_price], and the LG PG60[plb_1628190_price] is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This projector received a score of 20% from expert review site 01net.com. Experts don't rate this multimedia projector very highly.

Philips Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Battery powered projectors produced by Philips have unexceptional reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just battery powered projectors) and found that Philips also has unexceptional reviews across its entire range.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of battery powered projectors that are a similar age to the PPX1230/EU is 20 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,500 ANSI lumens. The PPX1230/EU has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 30 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Philips PPX2230/EU[plb_1486260_price] which has better reviews.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the 3M MP225[plb_1600824_price] (32 ANSI lumens), the Genius BV180[plb_2332735_price] (35 ANSI lumens), or the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D[plb_1794062_price] (35 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

We compared this multimedia 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 Wi-Fi

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the PPX3610[pl_1565992_price], or the PPX3610/CN[pl_3175148_price] both from Philips or the Aiptek PocketCinema V150W[plb_2128299_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
