7 Reasons For

A Best Selling Projector

The M100 is a popular choice of multimedia projector according to Amazon sales data.

Good Connectivity

One Pico Genie M100 reviewer who reviewed this projector mentioned that it was wifi compatible. Corsur wrote “It mirrors my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with its built in wifi DNLA Mira cast projecting it to a 80 inch screen dim/dark room” and rated it 4 stars.

Robust

One Pico Genie M100 owner who bought the product reckoned that it was well made.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Pico Genie M100 reviewer wrote in their reviews that the Pico Genie M100 was noisy. Two years ago Corsur wrote in their Pico Genie M100 review on Amazon “Some say the fan is to loud, I would still conceder it thou it looks to be a good performer” and scored it 80 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Pico Genie M100 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other recently released data projectors also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Asus ZenBeam E1[plb_3800547_price], the LG PH150G[plb_3783157_price], or the Optoma W330[plb_3342157_price] which has better reviews.

10 Reasons Against

Pico Genie Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Pico Genie has ok reviews for its battery powered projectors, however it has unexceptional average reviews when measured across its entire projector range.

Poor Support

One Pico Genie M100 reviewer thought it did not have good technical guidance. Corsur wrote in their review of the Pico Genie M100 on Amazon “The manual is not great on this projector it mainly shows you how to connect to a phone”.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that were launched in the last year, the Pico Genie M100 does not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma W330[plb_3342157_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
