    PT100 PlayTime Projector – lightweight fun

    I highly recommend the PT100 LED projector as an extremely portable supplemental
    display for kids and the family.

    The PlayTime projector has an extremely straight forward design – a couple video inputs,
    front drop down foot for adjusting the projection angle, screw down rear foot for leveling
    the image, focus ring and control panel buttons.

    The control panel includes seven buttons – power, volume +/-, source, menu, and left/
    right arrows for scrolling through the menu. The menu features adjustments for aspect
    ratio, brightness, language preference, source selection and image orientation.

    This less than 2 pound projector can be connected to a variety of AV sources through the
    composite video input, to computers using the VGA input and to audio using RCA jacks.

    Included in the carton is the projector, a power cable, RCA cables for L/R audio and
    composite video, user guide and a 90 day warranty card.

    The projector is bright enough to display an acceptable 30″ diagonal image in rooms
    with the lights on and a 60″ diagonal image with the lights off. When you turn off the
    lights the image looks great, not high resolution, but more than acceptable for kid friendly
    movies and basic video games. I estimate the projector needs to be about 5 feet from a
    wall to display a 30″ diagonal wide-screen image and about 10 feet back to project a 60″
    diagonal wide screen image.

    The projector can run for hours and generates very little heat so you don’t have to worry
    about burning fingers or melting table tops. The LED PT100 reminds me of a flash light
    that can be turned on and off at random without worrying about burning out a costly
    lamp.

    The PT100 won’t replace your television or large screen projector but your kids will
    enjoy impromptu movie and video game nights on the wall or ceiling of their choice.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Optoma PT100, WVGA, 50 LED Lumens, Gaming Projector (Office Product)

    I recently purchased this projector as a replacement for my near-vintage Sharp XV101TU, whose bulb decided to blow out on me. In the process of shopping for a replacement projector (or trying to decide whether to just replace the bulb – nothing but love for my 25 lbs projector from the early 90’s..) the Optoma PT100 caught my eye.

    I admit my main draw to this projector was the price – which was less than a mere bulb for your average projector – and the fact that THIS bulb would never need to be replaced, as it was powered by LEDs. I dove headlong into purchasing the projector knowing full well LEDs couldn’t replace the luminescence of a metal-halide bulb, but the lure of never having to shell out $300 every year or two couldn’t be denied, and I was willing to take a chance on the 50(!!) lumen output.

    Now here, we get to one of the main points I uncovered from doing projector research: ALWAYS be extremely wary of no-name projectors. You probably already knew that, but pay particular attention to the “brightness” department. Many list their brightness as 400lm, or sometimes even 1000+ lumens, or worse yet, not at all. This isn’t very scientific, to be sure, but if in doubt, try and see if you can find a Youtube video or the like demonstrating the projector. After seeing various nameless LED Chinese projectors on Youtube and comparing them to legit 1000 lumen projectors, it seems pretty obvious their brightness stats are a little inflated (not to mention, if the typical Samsung or LG LED projector projects at 200lm… you gotta wonder). I say this because I noticed that with a 50 lumen output, this projector really seems to be a lame duck when considering no-name eBay projectors have an alleged 1200 lumens for the same price. But I can assure you, no-name projectors almost never live up to their descriptions, so do your homework! Better go with a lower lumen projector from a reputable manufacturer than a knock-off claiming a million lumens, in my opinion.

    That said, 50 lumens is no sunbeam of light, but I currently have it set about 14 feet away and for watching a movie at night, the 80+ inch image is awesome. Of course, you do want to be conscious of what you will typically be using the projector for before you purchase. Yes, the ability to be satisfied with a given brightness is subjective, but only to a point. If your primary purpose for getting a projector is watching Dark Knight over and over again, 50 lm will inarguably be a little dark for your needs (pun intended) – most LED projectors probably will be. For your average movie or Wii game, however, this projector performs brilliantly. Keep in mind though, nighttime use – or with a good set of blackout curtains. If you’re looking at daytime gaming… again, add blackout curtains to your financial calculations (or start moving your gaming chairs to the basement). On the positive side, the projector is extremely portable, so if you have a room that’s naturally darker than others, it’s easy to move.

    A note about screen size: like many inexpensive projectors, there is a fixed throw ratio – in other words, for you camera savvy folk, no zoom lens – the screen size is in direct proportion to how far the projector is placed from the screen/wall.

    Many of you probably have concerns about the resolution – I certainly did. Yes, 480 is pretty old-school tech, no getting around that – the projector IS $199. Keep in mind though, that it is 480p (all LCDs, DLPs, and Plasmas, to my knowledge, are progressive scan), so it’s a squeak better than standard definition (I believe it’s formally called “enhanced definition”). Additionally, to offset what many might consider to be low res for today’s standards, the projector’s native resolution is 854×480 pixels, which amounts to widescreen plus (a native DVD film resolution is 720×480, widescreen format is 704×480, and 4:3 format is 640×480). What this means, at the end of the day, is that if you watch a widescreen DVD, the image doesn’t have to be shrunk down to fit or cropped, like it might otherwise have to be on a projector with a native 4:3 aspect ratio (i.e. 640×480). Also with regard to image quality, 3LED DLP is known to have nice vivid color and as far as I’m concerned, it does.

    Unfortunately, there is no remote for this thing – all adjustments are made with buttons on the body itself.

    Speaking of body, the build quality is excellent considering the price tag – nice solid plastic housing; a possibly random aside: when I first took it out of the box, I thought it very much resembled the look and feel of a typical wall-powered radio alarm clock, both in size and weight (and color). It is a bit lighter than one would expect from a projector, even one of this size. Is it as tank-like as my old Sharp? Definitely not, but no modern projector really is. Will it stand up to a fair amount of abuse from an average child? I…
