50 lumens of brightness - one of the biggest enhancements over previous generations / smaller PK201

2 agree

compact and lightweight - ideal for use on the go

2 agree

much enhanced 854 x 480px resolution over previous generation (480 x 320px)

2 agree

affordable price point for such a fully featured mobile projector

1 agrees

The 854x480 Resolution is much better than the older 480x320. 480x320 is no where near 4:3 SD but 854x480 is perfectly ED/480p in 16:9. Most Sega Arcade Games run on WVGA Resolution so this is a must have for gamers!

Ports include 2.5mm Composite video/audio-in, VGA and Component-in, audio-out and mini HDMI input. The Optoma PK301 is expected to be released in March, 2010.
