PIQO Review – Best HD Mini Projector
Pocket-friendly projectors are not a new concept for the tech world. Multiple companies have stepped in and developed them over the past years.
However, after a full and thorough review, we have not found any pocket projectors that were nearly as good as the new PIQO pocket projector. Raising over USD$3million on the Indiegogo Crowdfunding platform, the technology of this device offers exceptional features and support that none of the previous pocket projectors provided. PIQO is also one of the only devices that offers HD quality at a fraction of the price you have to pay for a high-end pocket projector.
The company shared the features of the pocket projector, and their claims were enough to grab the attention of just about everyone, including ours. So, we got one of these projectors and tested the performance ourselves. Here’s what we have to say about this future-ready smart pocket projector.
- Durable Design And Build Quality
- Out of the box, PIQO is a smooth finished cube-shaped device with curved corner faces. It also has a mild chafer on the upper and lower edges for a sleek and appealing look.On the front side, you can see the thick glass of the projector lens, and next to it is the brand logo. On one side of the projector, you will see the speaker. On the other side, you have the power button and the HDMI Port. On the back, there is an audio jack, USB port, and a DC input port. There is also a small IR receiver that allows the mini projector to be controlled with the given remote.Here is a clearer picture of the design in every view: If the remote is too far from your reach, you can use PIQO’s touch input buttons on the upper side of the projector to control it, making it super accessible. The upper side of the outlet also contains a small button to adjust focus and a slotted grid for ventilation to prevent overheating.
- Overall regarding the material, PIQO’s company has done a great job here. The sleek-looking device has a sturdy structure that can sustain falls and shocks. Therefore, not only is it small and handy, it is also very durable and high-quality.
For all users looking for an alternative against the expensive home theatre, PIQO is a blessing. In such a small build, it can offer a screen size of up to 240 inches without any drop in the frame quality. Its advanced chipset and lens ensure a high-quality output of up to 1080p (1920X1080) for crisp video watching. We were definitely the most impressed by the high resolution that PIQO offers.This smart pocket projector also has keystone angle correction technology that helps it adjust projection angles automatically. It uses a state-of-art gravity sensor to sense the surface beneath it and adjusts the projection angle for a perfect view angle, no matter what surface you are projecting it to. It also eliminated blur and distortion in the video playback.
