I use a Dell M109S (not pico but quite small) and as long as you’re in the dark it works fine.

Basically you need to ask yourself these questions :
How big do you want your screen to be ?
Where do you plan on using it ?

Really the only problem with micro or mini projectors is their low resolution and low lumens (low brightness).  If you can deal with these things, they can make some nice cheap setups.

The lumen rating is up to you.  The lower the number the dimmer it will be and the less light the surrounding environment should have.

That probably would require upgrading the LED inside used to project the image, so most likely not possible.
