A small projector is a device that projects an image onto the wall or screen. It can be used for business presentations, home entertainment and even educational purposes in schools. They are also known as Pico Projectors because of their compact size and light weight design which makes them easy to carry around with you wherever you go.

Small Projector: Frequently asked questions

What types of Small Projector are there and what determines a good product?

There are three types of Small Projector, namely: Home Theater Projectors, Business/Institution Projectors and Education & Training projectors.

There are many factors that determine whether a Small Projector is good or not. Two of the most important ones are its resolution and brightness, which we discuss below. Other factors include color accuracy, contrast ratio, input lag (if you care about it), price/value ratio and others. We also cover these in our reviews as well.

Who should use a Small Projector?

Small projectors are great for anyone who wants a projector that is portable, easy to use and can be used in any room. They’re also ideal if you want something small enough to carry around with you on the go or even take camping. If your needs aren’t too demanding then this type of projector could well suit your requirements perfectly.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Small Projector?

The Small Projector should have the ability to support your business needs. You must also consider price, warranty and customer service of the manufacturer.

The power of the Small Projector, its display type and size, connectivity options and other features should be compared before buying it. Also look out for warranty information on a small projector to make sure that you are not overpaying for something that is likely to break down in just a few months.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Small Projector?


Small projectors are very portable and can be used in a variety of locations. They have small footprints, so they won’t take up much space on your desk or table. Many models also come with built-in speakers for audio playback without the need to connect external devices like an MP3 player or smartphone. Some even include wireless capabilities that allow you to stream content from other sources such as smartphones, tablets and computers via Wi-Fi connectivity options (like Apple AirPlay). These types of projectors typically don’t require any additional software installation because most support popular file formats including AVI, WMV and MPEG4 video files; JPEG image files; PDF documents; etc., which means there is no extra cost involved when it comes time to use them right out of the box.


Small projectors are not as bright and have a lower resolution than larger models. They also tend to be more expensive, less portable and lack the features of their bigger counterparts.
