12 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The M400 Pro has an average running cost of only £9 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheaper to run recently released battery powered projectors.

Good Product Quality

Some people said in their reviews that the product was good quality. Exmciboss mentioned on Amazon “I started off looking at much cheaper personal projectors then decided, as I was reading the reviews, that I would go for a decent quality one”.

Good Connectivity

Two Pico Genie M400 Pro reviewers who reviewed it thought it was wifi compatible. Alecmac wrote in their review “Nice projector, widi and wireless apps constantly drop connection”. M. Vale wrote in their review of this projector “Great bit of kit! Wifi functions need work”.

One Pico Genie M400 Pro reviewer who reviewed it mentioned that it was good in terms of USB connections. M. Vale gave it a rating of 80 out of 100 and said in their review on Amazon “The USB and microSD work great and have played back everything I have thrown at it so far”.

Good Picture Quality

A few customers said in their reviews that the Pico Genie M400 Pro had good picture quality.

Good High Def TV

One person said in their reviews that the Pico Genie M400 Pro was good at displaying high definition TV. Exmciboss wrote on Amazon “2) It is full HD and much higher resolution than the cheaper models” in their review of the Pico Genie M400 Pro.

Robust

One Pico Genie M400 Pro owner who bought this projector reckoned that it was reliable. M. Vale wrote in their review on Amazon “Seems to stay connected reliably once you finally get the devices to talk to each other”.

Nice Design

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was good looking. Alecmac wrote in their review of this projector on Amazon “Nice little projector that can be used to watch films on in a moderatly dim room with pretty good picture quality” however they gave this projector a rating of 3 stars.

Reasonably Priced

One Pico Genie M400 Pro owner thought this projector was good value for money.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The M400 Pro supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other new battery powered projectors do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Philips PPX3417W[plb_3347906_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other new similar spec projectors which do not support 3D image projection, the Pico Genie M400 Pro supports 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The M400 Pro has a built-in speaker. Most of the other battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the M400 Pro also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price], the Philips PPX3417W[plb_3347906_price], or the Sony VPL-DX270[plb_3840118_price] which has better reviews.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the M400 Pro is WXGA (1280x800). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WVGA (854x480).

This multimedia projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is in fact the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

A WVGA (854x480) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.

6 Reasons Against

Average Owner Reviews

Owners have rated this Pico Genie data projector on average 69%.

Pico Genie Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Average reviews across all Pico Genie data projectors are unexceptional, however average reviews across just Pico Genie's battery powered projectors are ok.

Poor Support

One Pico Genie M400 Pro reviewer said in their reviews that the Pico Genie M400 Pro did not have good customer support. This year Adam U. wrote “Good product let down by poor customer support” and gave it a score of 3 stars.

Inferior Sound Quality

One Pico Genie M400 Pro reviewer who reviewed it considered that it did not have good sound quality. Exmciboss mentioned on Amazon “The sound output is not brilliant”.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Pico Genie M400 Pro does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other battery powered projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M400 Pro also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The price range of latest battery powered projectors is from £199 to £526. We think that this battery powered projector looks expensive compared to other latest battery powered projectors.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pico Genie M400 Pro

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when Pico Genie released the M400 Pro.

Average Projector Brightness

The M400 Pro has a pretty standard projector brightness (300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the M400 Pro.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price] (450 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Sony VPL-DX270[plb_3840118_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
