Edit: Various reviews have already been released. IGN claims the input lag to be 102ms...which is pretty much unplayable for any FPS games then.
Wait, is Xiaomi an OEM for Vava? Are there any differences that can be confirmed?

So this PJ works well with DLP link glasses?

Sadly, I think most people’s first impressions with 3D were in store demo’s or poor quality passive 3D commercial cinemas. So most don’t even bother trying 3D at home on their projector. But, once most people see active 3D on a DLP projector they realize what they’ve been missing.

I think most don't have 3D content. Since their perception of 3D from store demos is "meh" they're likely not gonna go get 3D content to watch at home.

Don't you have to buy separate Blu-ray 3D movies?

Usually the combo is about $5 dollars more and includes the 2D disk as well.

13 pages later and no firm confirmation that this puppy can do 3D. Do you happen to know?

I now got both projectors at home and I'm happy to say that the Mijia 4k really does 3840x2160. I use the projector as my PC monitor. That was the main reason I wanted to upgrade. Media programs and games, etc looks so much better with the projector matching the resolution I use on the PC.
I mentioned in my previous post that I was worried that the Mijia 4k was less bright than the Wemax One Pro, but its not. Both projectors, on the same setting (on HIGHLIGHT) and the Mijia 4K actually looks slightly brighter than the Wemax. So the 7000 vs 5000 lumens is just a marketing thing.

Another thing worth mentioning.

The Wemax had a great keystone system. (Standard 4 or 8 point adjustment) with great flexibility.

But the Mijia 4K has done away with that, instead it has some useless, very limited system where you can only set the angle. This means it's much more difficult to set the height and width of the picture. you actually have to move the unit itself around and go find more magazines to put under it etc. Super annoying, especially if you have a fixed projector screen to display onto. The Wemax was SO EASY...


Otherwise i was very happy with the Wemax, but the Mijia 4K definately has better image quality.

Cheers
Any chance you can test yours to see if it offers option to activate 3D?

And also, for those in the USA that got this unit, how do we safely provide power to it? Looks like its Power Supply: 200-240V / 50 - 60Hz

Texas - according to the check sheet it does 3D.

I think I read here or some other forum that if you press and hold the enter button you get 3 options. One of these has the 3d option within it.


I cannot confirm,hope it helps!!

You'll most likely need to get a step-down converter that supports at least 300 watts.

This doesn't actually help.

We're trying to get someone with this projector to confirm it does 3D and how well.

Hey people. I just received this projector. I managed to set it in English. I connected it to my laptop (1080 gtx nvidia), but no matter what i do i only get [email protected] The cable is good quality. If i try to activate "hdmi 2.0" from playback settings the laptop crashes or becomes super unresponsive. This is unacceptable for me, but the Chinese supplier won't accept returns. Do you have any advice on how to solve this? Thanks

Do you have any other way of trying out [email protected]? Perhaps a PS4 pro or Xbox One, Apple TV?

The check sheet in the shop says it has 3D. However, on the Xiaomi home page in China, there is no mention of 3D. This makes me wonder...

I think you mean step-up converter. Input 110VAC, output 220VAC.

I have just noticed that on the Vava campaign page they claim support for HDR10 - but multiple reviews state that it in fact only supports Rec.709 - an SDR colour space.

Considering the guts are the same, it seems very likely to me that this PJ does not in fact support HDR at all. (and Vava are pretty much outright lying on their campaign page)

The only time that can exceed or matched the 3D of the DLP I saw was when i watched Imax 3D other 3D in cinema's I saw here in the middle kingdom are utterly crap!
every time I demo to someone 3D DLP the expression is like from bill & ted - awesome dude! it's so bodacious lol. truly a different experience from local cinemas.
& since the xiaomi is DLP it could have the same effect.

My Optoma GT5500 is great for 3D but I want a brighter picture and larger screen. You can go pretty big with 2D but have to go back down to 100" for 3D to look good in the most recent movies. Has anyone else noticed that the new 3D movies are not a bright as the older ones? The latest Star Trek was unwatchable in 3D. It's such a shame as I am a 3D fan.

The projector's Chinese software won't do it (well I haven't found what needs to be switched to do it)
But if you plug in an external source and turn it up to one of the 4k resolutions it will do it. I use a Mi Box S 4k and it does the resolutions fine.
There's something in that Chinese OS that won't allow it, but you can be assured it will do 4k.

Another way to check is to turn on youtube and go to "STATS FOR NERDS" it will tell you what it is doing. Also, Youtube will tell you what it will display when you go to the resolution settings.

Yes, i dont think ill be using any of the app in the projector, more of using nvidia shield, and my himedia player for movie playback. currently im using 2160p 60hz setting on my himedia player output to 4k tv.

What you meant is this projector will be able to play in this setting right as long as i connect an external player that is setted at 4k 60hz?
