I've just found one fanless pico projector on the internet: Optoma PK-120.
So now that we know it's possible to have a noiseless projector, the question is are there any better ones than the above?
Judging from youtube videos, the image quality is okayish, but (duh...) a bit on the dark side ;-)
btw, I've impression that AVS is not really the best forum for this sort of topic - if anyone could point me to other places on the internet worth asking that would be great. thanks!
edit: I went through Optoma's discontinued products specs sheets, and I found something which seems exactly what I'm looking for - PKA31, a 50 lumen noiseless projector. The only problem - it's gone. There's hardly any information about it any more and nothing on ebay...
There are also PK201 and PKA21 which seem a notch better than PK120 but worse than PKA31 specs-wise. I'm afraid it might be the sort of situation as with fanless laptops - they appeared in 2005-2007, and afterwards it was extremely difficult to get one (I mean laptop not netbook) until end of 2013..
