@wheelee , thanks for posting it, let me know when you see it in person, if it's decent, I'm getting one for sure. If I'm not mistaking, JmGo has been sending pre-production unit to users you can see actual Photo in Tmall. Glad I hold off on Optoma i5.

Good stuff Wheelee, I cannot keep up with JMGO's product range as they have so many (more than XGIMI), but I think this one is also a faux-4K projector based on the price (same as the Optoma). No mention of the DMD used so could be 0.47. JMGO has the edge here over XGIMI so we'll see how XGIMI responds.

Only a year ago we talked about how far laser and 4K projectors could be from being affordable...but here we are Could this be the 4K projector you've been waiting for?

I want to order it with the special promotion but the site is only in Chinese and I do not know if they will ship it to the USA.


Are there any other site to pre-order or order this projector?

Under $1200? That's a helluva price!

I think it's safe to say the floodgate is open and we will start to see companies start releasing similar projectors at lesser and lesser price tag.

The big question remains...for these Chinese brands (Xiaomi, Jmgo, Xgimi...etc), which ones of them are certified and support HDCP 2.2? It seems Xiaomi does, for certain.

yup! 2019 will be the year of affordable 4K UST Laser/ LED PJ's
I think someone tried the Lune from Xgimi & it can play HDCP 2.2

The .66 chip does not support 3D since the pixels are smaller. If it did, the 3D screen would be a smaller 1080p display subset of the larger 4k chip. My guess is that they are using the .47 chip, which is smaller, though they say they are using the .66 chip. As with the lumens and contrast, you really can't trust anything that comes out of these companies as a lot of it ends up to be made up specs.

Which companies? I know Benq heads this department in their marketing.

China based companies. As for Japanese companies like Benq, Optoma had the wrong chip mentioned in their early marketing of their new 4K projectors UHD 50, 51A.

They're not Japanese companies, and China based companies like the ones listed on this forum use the same marketing strategies as everybody else and in fact offer more details than what I've seen from Benq and Optoma.

my screen will be a whole hell of a lot bigger than 100"

my only issue will be the length of the HDMI cord which will have to go forward past the screen wall (2'-ish) , turn right 6' and down the wall 4'-ish to the speaker tube, and then about 20' back to my AV closet and then another 4' or so to the AVR. That's 36'! Eeek!

Seeing all these non-US units is a bit frustrating. I’m hoping our market starts to see some movement soon. Otherwise, I’ll be forced to learn Mandarin!

There are a couple that I know of on the internet that probably can (not sure why I can't list them but I can say "Amazon").

Those would be your best bet, otherwise, fly to China or Hong Kong (maybe Singapore might have them) and purchase it directly. I find support in most stores to be invaluable as they have the time and resources to help you set it up, if there's an issue with that unit (rarely) then they'll be happy to swap it out for another.

You'll also need to keep in mind of the screen that you will need to go along with these UST projectors, as they have their own special screens for daytime usage (quite effective actually). Some screens can't be folded, so you will have to find out the ones that can so that they can be shipped easily overseas.

Rocklee, do you remember once you recommended this el cheapo gray screen material from a vendor on AE? That's not ALR material, right? Are you still using the same with your Lune or did you "upgrade"?

I have tested it with the Lune. Although it works, I find that the Lune performs much better on a white/lighter surface. As I mentioned on the other thread, I'm making my own screen right now.

Sigh. All the big branded models support it, it's just not prominently advertised because the majority of this market do not use bluray nor play PS4. Everybody is using streaming media now.
