This product is officially the smallest projector we have reviewed till date. Recently released, it has been touted by many as a pocket projector, pico projector, and many other names that signify ‘tiny’. When I took it out of the box, I was quite amused and impressed too, looking at this mini projector. It’s obviously an ultra portable model, called ACER K10 projector, and it’s damn cute.
Design and features
This model is a DLP projector, and more interestingly has an LED lamp. This is impressive no doubt, as these last longer and can be brighter. The brightness is rated at 100 ANSI lumens, and contrast is at 2000:1 which is not so bad for pocket stuff. The connections available are minimal, with VGA (Mini D-Sub) for PC, and also a lone composite input. A Kensington lock slot is also provided. The native resolution is 800 x 600, but via the analog VGA connection we can go upto1600 x 1200 on a 9600GT graphics card. There are options to switch between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios.
There is a tripod mounting screw at the bottom, something new in the form of setting up options. It also has regular usual suspect type features found in projectors in general like Auto keystone, and DLP features like Brilliant Color Technology. There is no manual zoom though. Finally, the throw ratio is 1.97:1, and the max recommended screen size is 60 inches. One more small complaint, there are no audio options, and this might be bad for traveling business guys.
