Value

We are still in the process of testing the Aiptek V50, and much of the data is incomplete at this moment. However, we do know that the Aiptek V50 is about $100 cheaper than the AAXA Technologies P4 and so much easier to use. We also have recorded peak brightness for both of these picos and found that the Aiptek V50 has a brighter projection. We consider this stat as one of the most important for picos because none of them get that bright. Any edge in this category has a significant impact on the picture quality. We would say go with the Aiptek V50 for a number of reasons, most of which are the many faults of the AAXA Technologies P4, fully detailed in the conclusion.

Blacks & Whites

The Aiptek V50 has a higher peak brightness than the AAXA Technologies P4. We do not have the grayscale information yet, but the peak brightness is more important.

Color

We do not have the color readings for the Aiptek V50 yet, other than the color gamut, which was abysmal.

Motion

We have not yet tested the motion processing on the Aiptek V50, but it was pretty strong on the AAXA Technologies P4.

Viewing Effects

Optical issues is another test we have not yet completed for the Aiptek V50, but the AAXA Technologies P4 scored averagely here.

Connectivity

The Aiptek V50 has limited connectivity, with really only an AV input. It prefers to connect to media files directly from it's menu system, either through a memory card or a USB dongle.

The AAXA Technologies P4 has a bit more breadth here, but the connections are limited in their flexibility, supporting only very specific resolutions.
