Verdict: A nifty compact projector for all occasions
Pocket projectors seem like an increasingly popular item among many companies and business people always on the go. Easy and lightweight to carry, and having similar functions to office-size projectors – Lenovo’s first projector on the market holds just as much weight as any other projectors.
Designed for business people who travels plenty, Lenovo’s Pocket Projector P0510 is made for businesses who often has to present ideas on the go. A model with simple design, it has several useful functions.
Adapting to new environments
Having similar functions as any other regular projectors, a lightweight, pocket-sized projector, it can be placed anywhere. The feature that stands out from this projector is its projector camera, which can be rotated 90° (manually). You don’t have to use external stands or objects to help it adjust to the screen level you wanted. This makes life a lot easier when you need to adjust the screen projection for your presentation without needing to fumble for an external projector stand.
Great for Work
The Lenovo Pocket Projector P0510’s video resolution has been eye-catching. With 50 lumens, the resolution may not be as powerful as its larger counter parts but the videos and images it presents are crisp and vivid. Its colours are rich and accurate also. Should we also mention videos played runs relatively smoothly despite few stutter.
It works great for companies or business people who often does presentations on the go…or when there was a power outage, this projector works as an alternative to carry on your important business presentations.
Movie Night Ready
Aside from business usage, you can use it for social events with friends and family. Play your favourite films on the big screen outdoors without needing to lug a bigger version of a projector – Lenovo’s latest standalone projector works just fine.
It is perfect for making presentations or watching videos, but it is not designed for constantly interacting with your desktop screen interface or for playing games. At the same time, although it may have come with crisp and vivid images, you can’t place it anywhere further than 3 metres where images and videos start to blur.
When playing videos on the projector, its sound system comes around brassy, and works louder than most phones’ speakers. But it works better when connected to a desktop or PC.
A piece of advice
It does have some compatibility issues. With Windows 8, it will only work with Miracast installed. It works well with the latest Windows operating systems and any Mac or iPhone devices after 2012. It does have some other confusing compatibility and connectivity issues but otherwise it works great as a pocket projector.
