Bought what appeared to be the last one in Cardiff Bay, though noticed one on the shelf behind the electrical counter upstairs in Llanelli Living last night. I suspect they'll be this price at anywhere with stock.

These are still:
£259.99 at Argos argos.co.uk/pro…238
£233.50 at Pixmania pixmania.co.uk/p/p…989

Only negatives are the poor resolution (640x360), and 1.5 - 2 hour battery life, though it can still charge while running. Overall I'm far more impressed than I expected to be though.

Edit: Now £50 if you can still manage to find one. As these are small probably worth asking at the electrical desk if they might have one in the stock room. They come in a box about the size of a small mobile phone.

Good question, don't know the answer. My first question would be whether the projected image itself is 1080p, often these cheap things will put specs like that when it only relates to the HDMI input it can accept. for example look at Look at this on eBay ebay.co.uk/itm…713 which bangs on about 1080p, but get to the small print and output resolution and it's only 320x180.

640 x 360 resolution if anyone's wondering
No good for watching movies but might be ok for something like a Halloween pumpkin projection.

Is it not better to buy the cheap 1s off Ebay and Amazon (Not pocket) £50-£100 with "1080p"??
These low Res projectors are fine if limited. Just know what your laying out for. Plenty of videos on YouTube.
Don't pay too much as you will find you don't use them much.

those usually are at best 640x480 resolution that downscales 1080P to 480P. They're cheap and numerous and mostly crappy built but at £50 what can you expect?

I have one of these although looks a better version. The picture quality is really good despite the low res count. This is while watching movies from a memory stick, plug in a games console or into a laptop and the results are terrible!
I don't pay much attention to resolution on projectors, it's not like an LCD with pixels.

That said this thing sucks.
Micro projectors are still not developed enough to be of a quality worth watching for long periods of time, I guess it was designed for quick presentations etc. Give it a few more years!

Take a look at the Sony CL1, full HD and uses a laser instead of DLP/LCD

Projectors are like cameras, resolution isn't everything.
