For more than 15 years now, PMA Research has collected monthly sell-through data from leading North American projector dealers, retailers, web resellers and distributors. Its Tracking Service family of monthly reports offers timely sell-through data and analysis on unit sales, true volume-weighted street prices, and inventories of front projectors for these channels.
Each month, PMA Research posts the Top 5 Projector Lists for the following product categories:
Pico and Personal (sub-1000 lumens) Projectors — For Pico and Personal projectors, the March results showed that 3 of the Top 5 selling models, by unit volume, were WXGA resolution projectors. Taking the number one, three and five spots, respectively, were the Optoma ML-500, the VivitekQumi Q2 and the 3M MP410. Rounding out the Top 5 were the 480p resolution Optoma PK-320 and the nHD resolution Optoma PK-120 in the number two and number four spots. This Top 5 list is compiled from data collected from PMA’s monthly Retail Projector Tracking Service sample, which is made up of North American retailers and web resellers.

The remaining “Top 5” models were all XGA resolution projectors, with the number two through number five best selling projectors being the Epson PowerLite 93+, the NEC NP-VE281X, the InFocus IN114 and the EpsonPowerLite X12, respectively.
