Philips PicoPix 1430 Led Projector With Built In Media Player Review

Philips bills its PicoPix 1430 as the perfect LED projector for ordinary consumers, stressing the importance of the built-in media player.  The Dutch manufacturer wants its customers to store content on the 2 GB of built-in memory, or else from an SD, SDHC or SDXC memory card (although this last format isn’t actually mentioned in the official documentation) and then take it with them when they visit friends and family.

Pros

Built-in media player can handle a lot of formats

Card reader supports SD, SDHC and SDXC cards

2 GB of internal memory

Cons

No HDMI input and by default HD sources play in SD

Loud, squeaky fan

Dreadful speakers

White areas look over-exposed and black areas too pale

Conclusion

Picoprojectors are rarely capable of producing good quality photos and the Philips Picopix 1430 is no exception to the rule.  Its top-quality built-in media player counts largely in its favour though.
