Pocket projectors aren’t a terribly new sort of gadgetry, but they’re becoming more mainstream thanks to decreasing prices, shrinking sizes and increased connectivity support with other gadgets you might have.

Enter the Miroir MP60, which weighs in at less than a pound, is less than four inches wide and long, is less than an inch thick, and costs $299 through AT&T. It uses DLP technology, has a viewable screen size of up to 60 inches and is compatible with many products, from computers to gaming systems to smartphones and tablets.

I tested the MP60 with a Samsung Galaxy S2, since it’s what I had on hand at the time. The two paired flawlessly, and within a minute I was able to browse my phone while watching what the Miroir was projecting.

White walls work

Video and projection quality was great once I got into a dark room that had some white walls.

White walls are my preference, but the projector will work on any surface (just some better than others).

Colors seemed accurate enough, and brightness and contrast were solid, too.

The MP60 has a built-in speaker that, for the size and location, is pretty decent.

It didn’t blow me away while I was watching “Jurassic Park” during the testing period, but since the device has a 3.5 mm audio jack, I was able to plug in external speakers for better sound. Of course, headphones work here, too.

Devices hook up to the MP60 via HDMI, and the Miroir comes with a number of adapters to make sure everyone’s modern devices are compatible with the provided connection cables. I was able to hook up an iPhone 5, a PlayStation 3, a Google Chromecast and an Acer Chromebook without issue.
