The 1500 lumens is somewhat underwhelming.

IT'S NOT LASER BRO! IT'S LED! 🤔☹ Same projector as the Optoma UHL55, which has the exact same lumen output and is also LED!

More info released.
Nothing groundbreaking here, will probably be priced to compete with the JMGO X3.

Hi Troy,

I'm a bit newbie. Could you please explain to me what difference that makes. I was speaking to a professional and he told me that 1500 lumens is abit too low for daytime use. But that's not the case? Thank you!

LED are Light Emitting Diodes that are used in projectors as a light/color source. Typically in lower end products they aren't very bright but they have good color reproduction Yes, 1500 is low if you plan on using this in a lit room, this is more oriented to darker rooms but you could possibly use it if you choose but don't expect to have a bright image. If you're using a projector in a bright room, I'd recommend laser based UST projectors or a bright bulb based projector. There are some LED projectors that are brighter but they are expensive starting off at around $2500 and up for 2000 lumens and brighter.

Hope this helped.

Got it. I also have the Lune 4K by XGIMI - just got it a few days ago - but was looking for a long throw one as well. Is the lune laser based lol? - i did a test seems bright enough for daily use but don't have the screen it needs yet.

Yes, the Lune is laser based. Make sure you get a screen specific to UST projectors: ALR or PET screens with fresnel. There are a nice variety of long throw projectors that are bulb based are are relatively bright, just browse through the forum.

Thank you! I admire all the knowledge!! Yes I've been researching about screens and have been running into some issues there. I'm trying to find something that is not fixed as a screen but unfortunately, everything i find for ust is extremely expensive. For example, the Screen Innovations Solo Pro with the UST fabric, if i recall, goes more than $3500 which is crazy.

Trying to figure out a solution. I originally got the short throw for my vacation place, where there is space for a fixed screen, but I was so impressed with the quality and now I want to keep in in my permanent home. I live in a studio in nyc - corner studop full of glass - so I can't place a fixed screen. Have been reseraching like crazy to find a solution. If i wasn't that busy i would probably try to come up with a unique solution for my problem and then sell them to others that have the same issue lol.

There are cheaper versions out there from Chinese manufacturers, do a Google search for ALR screens, usually under a grand (fixed frame only).

You can technically use a regular projector screen as well, you'll just be missing out on the ambient light rejection technology. There's actually a few videos on YouTube that show ultra-short-throw projectors on regular projection screens.

Good luck.

Thank you Troy. Yes I'm good at research - that's how I managed to get the Lune 4k directly from China. Unfortunately when it comes to what I need there isn't any cost-effective solution in the market besides the SI solo. As you mentioned there are fixed frames ones - but when it comes to something slim, pull down that has ALR technology that i could mount on the window frames or ceiling for a short throw at a reasonable cost - i cant find anything.

Thanjs again for all the great help.

XGIMI RS PRO - a replacement for PT4000 or coffee table ornament?

The RS Pro is a second generation design using RGBB-LED light source. While clearly aimed at the crowd who enjoys watching movies with the projector close by, it also supports ceiling mount and comes with a 1.25x zoom. This extra flexibility allows the RS Pro to position itself as an interesting alternative for those PT4000 owners who would like to upgrade to 4K but find the lamp-based BENQ unappealing. So would it work?

The lack of lens shift is the biggest shortcoming. Other important info such as brightness are also unavailable, and would most likely remains so until a through review is done. Meanwhile, there's only one way to find out.

Some has complained about the somewhat elevated launching price. This is probably necessitated by the removal of ads in the OS. So is it worth it?

Anything less it won't stand a chance against the 9000 lumens a300.

Source Lumens

The RS Pro uses a somewhat unconventional measurement to specify the projector's brightness: lumens at source. Apparently another great new chinese invention, so I was told. There's been no attempt to clarify how this would relate to the actual brightness measured at screen, but some chinese sources have suggested a yield of only 30%, which appears to be in line with the figures posted by a similar product, the popular Penguin S3.
