Philips continues to push its mini projectors with the introduction of the Philips PicoPix PPX 4010. The PPX 4010 is so small that its even smaller than a standard computer mouse. Still, the device can project images and video on a screen of up to 120 inches. This article provides an overview of the features and characteristics of the device as well as a Philips PicoPix PPX 4010 review.
The Philips PPX4010 is remarkable, since it is one of the most compact Philips projectors ever. The exact dimensions are 68 mm wide, 66 mm in depth and 22 mm high , and it weighs only 83 grams. As shown in the pictures, it occupies approximately the same size as a PC mouse, so it can be worn comfortably in laptop case or your backpack or normal bag, allowing you to always have it on hand for any presentation while hardly noticing any extra weight.
The Philips PicoPix PPX 4010 has an LED RGB light source with Smart Engine LED technology. This option is becoming the norm for most standard size projectors, and has the advantage, given the long life (approximately 30,000 hours) users will never worry about changing the lamp anytime soon. Moreover, the LED technology offers a more defined and vivid light, with great contrast levels that is equivalent to that of a conventional lamp's power. More specifically, the PPX 4010 offers a brightness of 100 lumens and, it is capable of projecting both images and videos up to a resolution of 854x480 pixels on a display of up to 120 inches (305 cm). Users can adjust the focus manually via a control on the top of the device.
