I bought its sibling, the PK320, a few months ago, and I'd be interested in knowing if there is any difference in image quality as they look identical (other than a slight colour difference on the plastic finish). I suspect the only difference is £80 and the PK320 has trick Excel and Word functions and more memory, which means that, since I have no interested in those extra functions, I wasted £80. Having said that, it's a great little projector (smaller than the pictures suggest), and I'm very pleased with it as a replacement for the 3M MP220 which I had a for a few days before sending it back as it was very flaky (I may just have had a lemon).

I used it on holiday to watch films projected on the hotel room wall, and it was a delight. (I also used a Minirig for the sound, which worked fabulously).

The only slight design flaw is that the miniHDMI socket is a bit close to the power socket, so you can't have the power and a mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter plugged in at the same time. A mini-HDMI -HDMI lead is fine, though (although I would have preferred it if they had used a normal HDMI socket - it's not that much bigger and would just about fit).
