Which ceiling mount/stand did you go for?
Am looking for one that can swivel left-right, up-down & forward-backwards (planning to view on smaller 120" during day giving higher brightness & move backwards to view 150" at night).

Throw distance will be :

I ordered the 4k model from China and it will be here today. I am in the US. Can I just plug it straight into the wall with the $2 adapter they sent with it?

I believe there are two versions out there. One of them works with 110V and will be sent with a plug adapter for U.S user. I got one that came with a U.S plug adapter and it runs on 110V just fine.

But after i adjust the keystone, i can reduce the screen so the blur at the top left will not be seen.

I will be getting the screen soon, so just checking if any keystone adjustment needed with a screen? Or you purely adjust the position of the projector to fit perfectly within the screen?
Follow the steps below to get the best possible squared image if you place it on a stand or an adjustable ceiling mount:

1. Play around by adjusting the PJ's rubber feet to get the rectangle as squared as you can.
2. Use "fine" adjustment for fine tuning the rectangle.
3. Use "Electric focus" mode (the newest firmware switches it back to Chinese but it's at the same location) to adjust the two upper corners if they're blur by using left and right buttons.

-Done

Mine just came in the mail but didnt come with the plug adapter. Was your adapter shipped separately? Its nowhere in the box.

If they send you the adapter plug then it should be the 110V version. You'd better buy a mickey power cord coz their adapter is very flimsy and loose. I use a mickey power cord from an old printer and it works great.

so what about a 0.7 spandex screen?

To date I've been using a 1070 and a UHD50 which supposedly output 1100-ish effective lumens.

Hello everybody,

I have received this great 4K projector yesterday, could you please tell me how I can change the menus in English? Is there an .apk file?

Since I also own the 1080p version I will make a comparison with the new one on a 100 "ALR screen. :-)

Many thanks for your help!

There may be an apk, but changing to English menus appears to be a simple process from watching this unboxing video (1:42-5:00):

I think its the 3rd or 4th option down in the settings, select English, which is clearly marked.

coil whine?

I received mine yesterday and It also has the high frequency beeping, coil whine or whatever it is called. I hopped I would get one without this problem... I will try to get used to it since I don't want to wait to get a replacement which could take another month or more to come.
Anyway, globally I am satisfied with it. Coming from an old HD ready UST (screeneo) I can only be glad!

To compare shortly with my old one:
  • Noise: With the Xiaomi it can reach 40dB if we are right next to it or around 34dB at ~2m. My screeneo does around 30dB and no coil whine!
  • Look: Xiaomi is heavier and less higher but the screeneo has physical buttons and the remote is more complete. This may be a big problem if we loose or break the remote to wake it up from a screensaver or the security screen if something/someone pass in front of the source for example.
  • Picture: undoubtedly the xiaomi has better colors and you can adjust the RGB. The screeneo doesn't have this feature but instead has many pre-select display mode although the red color remain too flashy.
  • 3D: I tried with a 3D bluray and it was a very nice experience with no name DLP glasses. The colors and brightness were way better and no discomfort at all.
  • Input lag: I don't know exactly how many milliseconds but with a game on PS4 Pro it didn't bother me at all. Not far from the screeneo which I read somewhere has a good input lag for an UST projector.

The "not all" translated english menu is enough to use it.
I don't own a 4k android tv box to try it at its fullest yet.
I am projecting on a 90" screen for UST (no place for a bigger one) and I would have been happy if it has a 8 or 12 points keystone to adjust it more. But I am fine as it is
By the way, it is bright enough to use during the day. I tried this afternoon without the curtain of a window which is right in front of the screen.

Without the coil whine it would have been perfect! But maybe many of the owner don't have this problem?

That static noise (someone who took it apart said it was color wheel) is the same as in previous 1080p model. I am not bothered any more by it but was hoping they addressed it in a newer version

IT IS OFFICIAL!

I ordered this projector to replace the 1080p Xiaomi (white version).
I was waiting to see the VAVA and LG models but since VAVA snootched the pooch with key features and LG wants three times the price of this projector (I paid $2078 including shipping etc).

Now I need to figure out what to do with my current Xiaomi UST projector once this arrives...

I used to think that too until he ripped me off.
For my Xiaomi 1080p I used his referral code from gear best because he promised his calibration settings.
After I received my unit he claimed ignorance and said he did not see my order....

Long story short do not use his referral codes ever!

Did anybody tried this with a good laptop/pc? Did you guys managed to get [email protected]?
I have the previous gen Xiaomi UST projector that had fake 4k (downscaled to 1080p).
It works perfectly on my alienware 17R4 laptop using a nvidia 1080m. It also works without issues with my apple tv 4k running [email protected]
Same for my Ps4 pro and Xbox one X all running through my Denon Receiver.

I have the new projector from this thread on order so I can verify if the new projector works the same.

Honestly I think you wont want to hear this but it sounds to me that you need higher quality cables. Not all cables are created equal and if it helps I use HDMI over Fiber optic cable and it works without any issues.

Looking at this projectors manual it supports from 80" to 150" in screen size. As an UST (or any projector) newbie, could someone confirm whether this will work in a smaller screen size i.e my wall can handle only up to 65"? If it's possible, does it have an affect the picture quality when going lower then 80"?

Right, for 65", I'd get a LG OLED, unless you need 3D (no more 3D support after 2016 models).

Absolutely. Even if it's currently my limit, I might have the possibility to use a bigger wall size later on and in that case wouldn't need to buy a new device for that purpose. Until then, I'm pondering on if this or any other UST projector would work well when using a smaller wall size.

I’m cool with the image on my white wall but every time I watch a movie my eyes burn afterwards. Any chance this projector is reflecting harmful UV rays off white wall? Similar as to why you shouldn’t look at the dot on the wall from a high powered laser (which this machine technically has but is diffused - class4 highest laser rating that exists).

I have been using the previous gen version for a good 5000-6000 hours reflecting on a 150" screen and I have not had any fatigue.
Hopefully that helps.

I don’t think anybody makes one over 120”. The material has a lenticular surface that would make it extremely expensive. Screen Innovations might, but I’m guessing you’d be looking at a nearly five digit price tag. If you want a screen that size your best bet would be controlling light very well and using a traditional white, slim bezel screen.

Nice screen set up. Do you have to pay duty fee for the purchase? I am concern that any purchase from China today will get hit with additional tariff/duty fee. From my understanding, the tariff begins on 6/1.

My purchase did and arrived before 6/1. Think its random.
