Poor Expert Reviews

Expert review website 01net.com scored this multimedia projector 20%. Projector experts don't rate this projector very highly.

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We checked 137 expert and owner reviews for Philips projectors and found that on average Philips has good reviews compared to other brands. However we also found that Philips has unexceptional reviews specifically for its battery powered projectors. 100% of those that bought a Philips projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

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

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of their better review scores, the Benq GP2, the XXODD Nano Go 7, and the Philips PPX2340/CN are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector, the PPX1230/EU does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Nano Go 7, or the Nano Go 8 both from XXODD or the Philips PPX3410/F7 are also worth considering.

Projector

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 30 ANSI lumens, the PPX1230/EU has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that are a similar age to this projector. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 12 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,500 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 30 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Philips PPX2330/CN which has better reviews.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the 3M MP225 (32 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Rollei Innocube IC200T (35 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P (£175.37) (35 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The PPX1230/EU has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector the resolution ranges from WVGA (854x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
