3M MP410 is a model that has a place without taking (although it has similar characteristics to the Dell M110) in a strip of increasingly popular market, the size of compact projectors. It is a compromise between the smaller pico projectors and compact projectors, less portable and somewhat larger size.

With respect to the small-sized 3M MP410 offers more connectivity and a higher power, up to 300 lumens when Pico projector usually rarely reaches 100. Another difference is that the battery MP410 does not have to use it so we have to connect it to the mains.

But not reaches 500 lumens or more compact projectors but these are not as small as the 3M MP410 and yet it is more expensive, larger and weigh that in most cases exceeds a kilo. The projector 3M MP410 in other hand equals the resolution of these devices (1280 × 800), a definition above Pico projector most.

In short it is a projector just over 10 x 10 inches and weighing 375 grams it offers very significant benefits: 300 lumens and a resolution of 1280 × 800. 3M also provides a carry bag in which we can accommodate both the projector and the power supply and cables.

In the section on the 3M MP410 connectivity encompasses almost everything. We can connect devices using RGB (with adapter), HDMI, insert a USB memory key or use a microSD card (up to 32GB). It is also possible (with additional cable) to connect to your PC via USB to manage the internal storage of 1 GByte.

It also offers optional WiFi connectivity. This projector can play all types of video formats such as MOV, MP4, AVI and even MKV, picture and sound from internal memory, USB key or microSD.

To Start the 3M MP410 is simple, has a keys on top that allows you to configure the projector and select the input. Focusing is done manually with the traditional ring. It has no geometry correction but height adjustment.

During testing the 3M MP410 projector immediately showed its talents. In the 300 lumens bright rooms get some pictures if not brilliant self clear enough to always introduced to limit the image size to about 55 inches. Similarly, the high resolution of the device contributes to the good readability of text and graphics on defining PowerPoint sessions.

More obtained dark sharp images with a more than acceptable contrast even with an image size equivalent to a 100 inch screen. The color was properly saturated and contrasts quite good, with a range of grays more than adequate. The ability to play movies in 720p (the player supports files 1080) is an advantage over the Pico.

In the section of sound speakers are more capable than smaller projectors, but they soon find reproductive defects. As for other models, we recommend external speakers, especially for playing movies. On the other hand the fan noise is quite low, even after one hour of operation is becoming a noiseless.

In short, this is extremely portable projector in which characteristics of projectors find a much larger size and weight. The picture quality is excellent and we see that the disadvantages such as lack of battery or some noise after prolonged operation can do we stop recommending it. This was all about one of the best Pico projector available i.e. 3M MP410.
