Portable Projector Review – Samsung P400 DLP Lumen Pocket Ultra Portable Projector

Very small and light weight. Sleek and sophisticated design. Has the great shiny look of most Samsung products. Smaller than the size of your outsteched palm. Weighs less than 2 pounds (Under 1kg’s) 150 ANSI Lumens and LED powered. This works really well with the lights turned off. But in a very light sunfilled room will struggle to project a clear picture and the image fades out a little bit.

The main weak point of any projector has to be the bulb. They usually last only a few thousand hours and are very expensive and tend to give up the ghost right in the middle of a film or presentation. But this is not the case with the Samsung P400 as they use a bright LED which is long lasting and has a bulb life of 30,000 hours. It has 2 built in speakers cutting the need to transport speaker systems around to use this projector. It has 800 by 600 resolution and has a 1000:1 Contrast ratio. And 4:3 aspect ratio. The P400 DLP also comes with a handy remote control to operate it.

This projector can be hooked up to operate with a dvd player, computer, xbox, ps3, cable box or any other gaming or multi media system. Please note that Blu Ray connectivity is out as it does not have an HDMI connection for blu ray.

This is ideal for the travelling salesman or to do presentations on the fly. If you have been on holiday or want to show that special wedding or christening video to your friends and relatives easily this would be the ideal choice due to its light weight design and flexibility of use.

At the back of the unit it has a composite input for video and audio inputs. It also has a VGA input that connects to the pc or laptop and a head phone jack input. So you can watch whatever you want with this projector and not disturb anybody else.

Not the most powerful projector but ultra portable. This is much better than most projectors in its class and price range. The brightness of the projector will pleasantly surprise you.
