2 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 3M MP225 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the MP225.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq GP2 which has better reviews.

Narrow

The widths of projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MP225 range from 4mm to 490mm, and the average width is 130mm. The 3M MP225 is one of the narrower projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MP225 (only 26 millimeters) amongst battery powered projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The 3M MP225 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 32 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that were released around the same time as the MP225. Across all the projectors that were launched around the same time as the MP225 the projector brightness range from 20 ANSI lumens to 5,500 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P (35 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MP225 do not support 3D image projection. The 3M MP225 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Optoma DH1009 (£449.98).

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The 3M MP225 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MP225 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Philips PPX3410 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most battery powered projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MP225 do not support WiFi connectivity. The 3M MP225 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Aiptek PocketCinema V150W, or the Philips PPX3610 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the 3M MP225 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all multimedia projectors of this age and spec the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 20h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 21,000h. At only 20 hours, the 3M MP225 has a very short lamp service life compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

With an internal storage capacity of only 2 gigabytes, the 3M MP225 has one of the smaller internal storage capacity amongst battery powered projectors of this age. Across all the battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago the internal storage capacity range from 1GB to 4GB.

3 Other reasons to consider the 3M MP225

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when 3M released the MP225.

1440 X 900 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the 3M MP225 is 1440 x 900. That's 33% less resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the MP225. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 832 x 624, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

Chart Edit

Average Maximum Battery Life

With a maximum battery life of 2 hours, the 3M MP225 has a fairly standard maximum battery life compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2h maximum battery life projectors and we think the Philips PPX3610 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a longer maximum battery life then you might also want to consider the LG PG60 (2.5h and higher rated).
