Has anyone tried any of the "pico projectors" out there with their iPhone 3G? I've seen these things on a bunch of tech blogs and they seem like a good way to share videos and photos, but there are so many out there and I can't really tell which one would work best with an iPhone. I don't need anything fancy, just something small that I can carry easily in my school bag that's battery powered and can project a 30-40" image on a wall or ceiling. An built-in speaker would be great so that I don't have to use headphones all the time.

Anybody here have first hand experience with these things?

I have the AAXA P1 Micro projector. You can get it for $239 here:

I think it's a great deal for the price - it's completely portable (battery powered) but can plug into the wall also. 60-70" images are easily projected in the dark. Just keep in mind you need a dark area for this, with a little light it gets really hard to see anything bigger than ~25-30".

I have some pictures in my other thread:

Wow, I didn't even know these things existed. Are there ways to connect a computer and/or cable TV to that thing?

Looks like it takes a standard composite video input. The onboard memory and media player are nice extras to have so you don't always have to connect it to something :cool:

Would you say that the image-quality is good enough for a smaller presentation (text, piecharts, etc - the usual) with around 40" without it having to be pitch-dark in the room? Im fed up with running around with my projectosaurus maximus.

Thanks for the link, Kush.

It seems unsuitable as a presentation-projector since it requires a rather dark room. Other than that it looks like a very nice product.

I know it's a bit late but I felt it would be nice to share some information since so much has changed with pico projectors recently. One of the best type of pico projectors you can get right now would be a laser pico projector. The most known one right now is the Microvision SHOWWX which will run you to just over $500. A bit pricey but it offers a lot of features that other projectors don't. There is also a new laser projector from AAXA called the AAXA L1 Laser which is in the same spec range. Please take a look at http://bestpicoprojectors.org/blog/faqs for more information.

Pk-301 looks good, but it is pricey at $400.
