4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PPX1230/CN has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq GP2[plb_1453630_price], the Panasonic PT-LX30[plb_1787312_price], and the Philips PPX2340/CN[plb_3175095_price] is also worth considering.

110 - 240V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 110 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The PPX1230/CN is a two number of built-in speakers projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PPX1230/CN only have one number of built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Very Long Battery Life (max)

When compared to other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PPX1230/CN that we have assessed, the Philips PPX1230/CN's battery life (max) of 2.5 hours is one of the longest. Across all the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PPX1230/CN the battery life (max)s range from 1h to 2.5h.

We compared this projector to all the other 2.5h maximum battery life data projectors and we think the Aiptek PocketCinema N100[plb_2128697_price], and the LG PG60[plb_1628190_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This projector received an expert rating of 20 out of 100 from 01net.com. This means that data projector experts really don't rate this data projector very highly.

Unexceptional Brand

Philips has unexceptional average reviews for its battery powered projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PPX1230/CN is 460 ANSI lumens. The Philips PPX1230/CN has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 30 ANSI lumens) amongst battery powered projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Philips PPX2230/EU[plb_1486260_price] which has better reviews.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the 3M MP225[plb_1600824_price] (32 ANSI lumens), the Genius BV180[plb_2332735_price] (35 ANSI lumens), or the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D[plb_1794062_price] (35 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

The PPX1230/CN does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma DH1009[plb_2529255_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PPX1230/CN, the PPX1230/CN does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the PPX3410/EU[pl_1572010_price], or the PPX3410/CN[pl_3174869_price] both from Philips or the Optoma DH1009[plb_2529255_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Philips PPX1230/CN does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the PocketCinema V150W[pl_2128299_price], or the PocketCinema A100W[pl_3088552_price] both from Aiptek or the Philips PPX3610/CN[plb_3175148_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Very Small Display Diagonal
