Tiny projectors that make a big splash.

Aaxa P2

Watching videos projected on a wall is only fun if they play without hassle. Satisfy the cinephile in your family with a pico that features onboard video decoding for popular file types such as AVI, MPG, MP4, MP3, and JPEG. Plus, the 4.3 x 2.3 x 1-inch P2 produces images of up to 80 inches using 33 lumens of LED light. Your film fan will also enjoy the stereo speakers, microSD card slot, VGA out, miniUSB, and rechargeable battery--all in a projector that weighs a scant 0.6 pounds.

Price: $299.00

Optoma PK301

Providing up to 50 lumens of light, the Optoma PK301 is perfect for the friend who always wants to show off his pictures. He can also watch 480i, 480p, and 1080i videos on the closest wall, up to 120-inch diagonal. At 4.7 x 2.7 x 1.2 inches and only 0.5 pounds, the PK301 is ideal for bringing to parties, and it's easy to hook up with inputs that include a 24-pin universal connector, mini-HDMI, microUSB, and a microSD card slot.

Samsung SP-H03

The proud new papa in your family wants to show his newborn's pictures to everyone--without being tied to an outlet. The SP-H03 has enough juice to show off pictures for close to two hours. Plus, it supports 1080i and 720p, so everyone can see Junior's first smile in HD. This pico is about the size of a White Castle slider (2.8 x 2.8 x 1.5 inches) and weighs just 0.4 pounds, so while the new daddy may not like toting around Junior's weighty diaper bag, he won't mind carrying this.

BeamBox Evolution R-2

Why make the family projectionist lug around her laptop and cables? The R-2 includes 1GB of onboard memory for showing off those precious moments. This year's holiday photos will look great illuminated with the R-2's 40 lumens of light, and it's easy to drop in a purse thanks to its 4.8 x 2.4 x 1.1-inch size. Once the slideshow's done, load up the next reel on a microSD card, connect via miniUSB, or use the included AV cables to connect to a DVD player or gaming console.

Price: $363.00
