AAXA P1 Jr. Pico Projector – Projector Screens

General Screen Recommendations

This page provides the same information on portable projector screens for pico projectors, as found on the other pico projector reviews in this 2010 Pico Report.

I suspect that people won’t be buying a projector screen to use with the Pico. Rather, they will project onto a white or near white wall, or whatever’s handy. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one, but mini-screens do exist, including those that retract into a tube.

I’ve seen such small screens in sizes from about 16″ diagonal. They can be opened up, and set on a table. By the way, I recommend finding a mini-tripod for setting up the projector. Those weigh only a few ounces and are typically less than 6 inches long.

If you are going to get a screen, I’d suggest a high gain screen if possible. That will help with ambient light, and provide some extra brightness. Some mini-screens come in high gain surfaces. One example is the Da-Lite Presenter screen shown here. It is 40″ diagonal, sells for around $199, and has a particularly bright surface.

For a lot less money (around $50), Draper makes a 25″ diagonal tabletop screen for pico projectors. I can’t say that I’ve actually seen one, but here’s an image I found.

Elite screens has two small folding screens one is a 15 inch diagonal projector screen, the other, 20 inches.
