Poi Products on the market – an overview

¬†Visual poi are an expensive purchase. There are so many products on the market right now, so how do you choose which one is the best for you? As you can see below, it’s very much a case of “You get what you pay for” in the Visual Poi world.¬†

The graph below indicates price vs number of pixels for all the poi products we are aware of, and generally the price trends upwards as the pixel density gets greater. If you want the cheapest poi (Jiaan Poi from Aliexpress) for $259 you only get 20 pixels – which may be fun if you just want some fun toys to play with (these are also the shortest poi out there, so more easy to spin) but if you are trying to make product logo’s work you will be needing at least 50 pixels for a decent image (depending on the logo of course). At the top end, there is the Ignis Pixel 256 HD – at a whopping $2500!

And you can buy everything in between of course – we will have a good look at the middle ground in other articles.
