Samsung SP-H03 review

Finally, a pocket-sized projector worth buying.

The Samsung SP-H03 in hand

Currently, there's a fairly wide choice of these ultra-portable projectors, and the Samsung SP-H03 is one of the best. It isn't perfect but it's fairly quiet, can show videos and PowerPoint slides without needing another device, and it's not too expensive either. The battery means it really can act as a standalone device, which is perfect if you need to turn up to a meeting and give a presentation immediately. Once you're finished, you can use it to watch a big-screen movie in your hotel room. As long as you don't want it to do anything else, it's a good choice.

So what's our verdict?


While flawed, this is the best pico projector we've seen so far. If you're planning on using it for PowerPoint presentations, bear in mind there's no remote control for the internal media player.
