Fengmi (峰米) Laser 4K Cinema

June holiday sales is now ongoing and the Fengmi(峰米) Laser 4K Cinema is available at attractive prices for limited time at selected retailers. This is basically the same as the Xiaomi4k with slightly different styling and higher lumens output. Model number is L176FCN.

Perfect for those on a tight budget. But a word of caution: Chinese internet purchase is not meant for the faint-hearted. Only proceed if you are prepared to accept total loss.

gotta watch out for this lol


Can the anti - glare screen be moved into my elevator/stairs?


Elevator: the diagonal length of elevator door should be more than 2.5m and the depth more than 1.5m
Stairs: the width of turning shall be more than 2.5m, and the distance from handrail to wall shall be more than 1.4m

Awesome. So basically comes with all it's bretherin's shorcomings. High input lag, screws up HDR and 3D, it's noisy. Probably a grand overpriced as a bonus. Perfect. Where do I purchase?

The 峰米4K has been loaded onto the orient express, making its way across the himalaya. Let's see if it arrives in one piece. Will find out soon if the fan noise issue plaguing the xm4K is fixed.

For those with a more refined taste, and find the spartan design of fengmi unappealing, the 250nits rated 光APPO A300 光峰臻彩 is now available.

The FM showed up last night, taking just a week to make the trip across the hump. Impressive.
Here's a quick take:

1. There's enough English in the menu to make it intelligible to those who may feel somewhat language challenged.
2. It comes with a power button.
3. [email protected] HDR works.
4. Sound system is surprisingly competent, quite adequate for casual use.
5. Fan noise remains am issue, despite promises of the customer service that this would be fixed. The Lune4k, in comparison, sounds almost benign and fades into the background at 2m away, perhaps that's the reason why this remains the top selling 4K UST model during the mid-june sales.

The FM will probably find a home that's more forgiving of its flaws. Meanwhile, looking forward to the second half of the year that will see more new entries to the Chinese 4K UST market. Even coal mining company is getting into the act.:eek: These are exciting times indeed.

How do you power this thing seeing as how it's 200-240V?

How does Fengmi perform in other points (black level, color etc.) in comparison to Lune 4k?

Thanks!

The Fengmi is being marketed as a XM upgrade, so I would expect similar performance from both. I only had little time to play with it before giving it away to a local community centre. Billy Lynn did look OK, but Paddington 2 had the same marmalade issue.

Black level is adequate at best, as I suspect the low power pico chipset is used in both the FM and Lune. I don't have access to a reference monitor, so have no idea how a real 4000nits image or BT2020 should look like. But to these untrained eyes BT709 colour gamut coverage seems pretty decent, although I did not get a chance to test if SDR/BT2020 could be displayed properly.

The main issue with these cheap single laser dlp is achieving acceptable colour balance in HDR and SDR, and access to the low level adjustments in factory setting may be required. This is exposed in the Lune, but the FM has to be rooted first. FM also did not specify if the RGB colour wheel is used. That may complicate the calibration process.

Have fun with the FM.

OK, just ordered the PJ a few days ago. Also order the Elite Screens AR90H-CLR (90 inch) screen. Will post review and pics in a few weeks.
