Though its design stretches the definition of "pico" projector, the Optoma Neo-i's inclusion of an iPod/iPhone dock along and its semirespectable image and sound quality help put it ahead of many competing small, casual video projectors.
The best value in front projection in its class, the Optoma HD72 is a surprisingly good performer at a ridiculously low price.
The Optoma H78DC3 is an excellent choice for anyone looking to put together a quality front-projection home theater on a budget.
Although a good performer if you use it with a relatively small screen, the Optoma HD81-LV 1080p DLP projector is overly complex and difficult to set up and install.

Though a tad pricier than we would have liked, the Optoma MovieTime DV10 does a good job delivering an all-in-one home-theater experience.
Image-quality problems overshadow this projector's impressive features; check out Dell's 3200MP or Mitsubishi's XD50U instead.
This 720p projector delivers 2,500 lumens and can be upgraded to work with 3D sources. Plus: two bonus deals!
That's the best price I've seen on a 1080p projector.
Optoma has started shipping its new PK120 Pico projector that's powered by a new Texas Instruments chipset and costs a reasonable $249.
