Philips describes the PicoPix Max as “the smart & fully wireless native Full HD projector with ultra-vivid picture made for use anywhere, [with a] Built-in battery, Android OS, invisible top touchpad, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C connectivity to play, work, and mirror all your apps”. It is a Full HD (1,920×1,080) DLP projector capable of producing up to a 120’ image, with built in speakers, and up to a 3-hour battery life.
Along with its portability and versatility, the PicoPix Max stands out as a fully self-contained entertainment unit with: a built-in media player, Android OS app support, Wi-Fi screen mirroring, and HDMI, Micro SD, USB, and USB Type-C connection ports. Philips markets the PicoPix Max primarily as an entertainment machine, but its variety of features also makes it a powerful tool for professional use in office and field environments.
The Philips PicoPix Max is a portable DLP projector that offers Full HD (1,920×1,080) resolution. The LED light source is rated for over 30,000 hours of use. Philips doesn’t provide a lumen output specification for the PicoPix Max, but we will measure it with our own test equipment and provide our findings in the performance section of this review. It comes with most of the major streaming service apps (Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, YouTube) pre-installed as well as the previously mentioned media player that supports a variety of popular file types, and Firefox web browser.
With an MSRP of $899, the Max is the most powerful (and most expensive) of the Philips PicoPix line of projectors that also includes the PicoPix Micro, and the PicoPix Nano. The PicoPix Max is an excellent choice for anyone that wants the functionality of a Smart TV with the portability of a paperback novel.
