AAXA P300 Portable Projector Review

Marc Davidson, April 5, 2013

AAXA touts the P300 as the world's brightest battery-powered HD projector, which may well be true at this writing at least. It's certainly battery powered, although the battery is optional, and the 1280x800 native resolution establishes its claim for 720p HD. Its measured brightness is lower than its 300-lumen rating for AC power or 160 lumens with the battery, but it's brighter than any other battery-powered projectors I've seen. So if it's not actually the brightest, it's in the running. That's more than enough to make it interesting, at $419 street, plus $19.99 for the battery.

In many ways, the P300 is similar to any number of other 300-lumen projectors that are also built around LEDs paired with a 1280x800 DLP chip. In each case, portability is a key selling point. The P300, for one, weighs less than a pound without its power block and can read files directly from a MicroSD card or USB memory key, so you can leave your laptop at home.

That said, the battery option is enough to separate the P300 from the pack by freeing you from needing a power outlet. If maximum portability is what you need, that gives the P300 a distinct advantage.

Hi Mel! Yes, I own a MacBook Pro and have watched many things already with it! You will have to purchase an adapter which can be easily found on ebay for pretty cheap for the VGA port or the HDMI port (my preferred port as it gives you hd images and videos)

I hope this helped you!

Hey I just have this thing for 4 month now. Perfect picture and very nice image quality but the fan noise is horrible. High leveled and too loud. Tried to replace the fan with a more quiet one but it detects the wront fan and shuts down. So I really want to replace this device because of the noise....

Could you write something about the sound level (fan noise) for the P300? Compared to some other devices. Or even better provide a recording of the sound.
