Xiaomi Mi Projector Youth Version Review: Best Choice For Alternative TV


If you ask me a product that I regret to lose in 2018, then I might say that it is a projector. The projector’s optical machine has a problem, and the whole picture turns yellow-green. It can’t be normal. use. But it used to be my favorite product. The first thing to go home from work every day is to open the light bulb of Mijia, and the second one is to turn on the projector. The projector is one of the few products that changed my entertainment habits. Because of the room size and moving problems, I have never bought a TV, but use projection as an alternative. Urban men and women who lack nightlife are the most likely to be lonely. Projector and television are all good things to add “human smell” to the room. They are the hard currency for life and entertainment.

The XIaomi Mijia projector youth version is currently a very popular small projection product, or it can also be called micro-projection. These projectors used to be different in the classroom or at the conference. They are much smaller in size, and at the same time, they sacrifice a lot of performance indicators. The economy is their label, even if the price of a TV has dropped. It is low enough, but there is still a place for micro-investment in the market.

Performance parameters we will talk about later, carefully look up and down the Mijia projector youth version you know, it is still Mijia’s products, the iconic milky appearance is inevitable. The overall design uses a vertical design, that is, the left and right widths are narrower relatives to the height. The advantage is that it does not occupy the space and can be used with a little foothold, but the disadvantage is that it is relatively difficult to adjust the elevation or depression angle of the projection.

In the overall design, the Mijia projector is a bit like a speaker, the power switch is at the top, and there are no extra buttons. The left and right sides and the back are occupied by a large number of openings, but the openings that are different in function are mainly used for sounding, and the openings in the back are used for heat dissipation. At the time of operation, it is obvious that hot air is scattered from the back.

Below the cooling air hole in the back interface, there is power, 3.5mm, USB 3.0, HDMI four side-by-side interface, to meet the basic needs, for me is a good tool to connect to Switch. The only difference from the TV is that the Switch has to be connected to the other side, that is, the projection side, which has certain requirements for space allocation.

Like other projections, the Mijia projector is also equipped with remote control, which is basically the same as the remote control of the Xiaomi TV. It is also similar to the remote control of its kind, but it uses two 7-cell batteries for power supply. In addition, don’t forget that it is also a hospital for Mijia products, so the Mijia app can also be simulated as a remote control.

Mijia projector youth version can support the physical 1080p resolution, from the parameters, see 0.33DMD should be shaken out 1080p, but from the clarity of the picture is clearer than the market one-socket 720p products, compared to other 1080p Products also have a certain price advantage.

What is more important than the resolution of the projector is the brightness. The projector with sufficient brightness can greatly enhance the viewing effect. The projector uses an LED light source with a brightness of up to 500 ANSI lumens, which is more than the common 300 ANSI lumens. Brighter, but still not enough.

However, it is obvious that such brightness is not enough to cope with the natural light environment during the day. Moreover, there is no light-resistant curtain in the office. It is projected directly on the white wall at around 11 am, roughly two meters from the wall. Although the projection size is about 100 吋, it is far from the maximum size or even recommended size, but the brightness of the picture can not properly distinguish the details of the dark, open the trailer of “Wonder Woman”, because the color style is quite a lot The dim scene is basically hard to recognize. However, the effect of an animated film like “I am about to turn into a slime” is barely able to see.

Of course, for a micro-injection product, it is also required to be able to see the dark part at noon without a curtain. It is too harsh, after all, the light source, chip, and volume are placed there. When the time came to work, the contrast of the whole picture immediately rose after the sky was dark. By the way, the projector also supports HDR10 technology, and HDR technology can make a good compensation effect in terms of the characteristics of the projection itself.

By the way, the Mijia projector youth version also has a highlight mode, but it is not recommended to open. The first is because the brightness has not changed in essence, and it is still unclear when it is not clear. The second is that the entire screen will become very green. I don’t know if this highlight mode will damage the optical machine, but at least it is not good.

Here again, I would like to talk about some of the things that people think are good. First of all, the autofocus function is quite sensitive. It is really easy to project this kind of product because of the usual movement, which makes it out of focus. The autofocus function helps users solve this problem quickly and automatically, but occasionally the screen is automatically switched to the focus screen when the screen is blocked.

Another feature is automatic keystone correction. In actual use, because the wall can not move, in order to achieve the best results, we can only adjust the position of the projector constantly, in addition to the distance from the wall, the height and direction also need to be adjusted in the market. The function of trapezoidal correction will be used. Even if there are elevation and depression between the projector and the wall, you can automatically correct the picture to a rectangle to avoid distortion.

However, problems have also been discovered during the experience process. For example, the automatic trapezoidal correction corrects the up and down angles, and the horizontal adjustment cannot be performed. This also makes it impossible to adjust the size of the projection size and perform the side projection. In fact, if you want to improve the wall surface, This function is necessary for the rate, and the lack of this function will also affect the flexibility of position placement.

Another problem is that the power cord of the projector seems to be a bit too short, because the placement of the projection is actually more flexible than the TV, too short power line will also affect the placement of the projector.

The sound performance is a surprise to me by the youth version of Mijia Projector. Originally, there was not much expectation of volume and 呻吟 performance in a small volume, but the actual performance was quite satisfactory. The first is that there is enough volume on the volume, and it is enough to meet the normal audio-visual needs after about 15 cards. In addition, the sound is not thin, it should be the entire cabinet to optimize the sound design

In terms of functional support, support for Dolby sound and DTS decoding is also a pleasant performance. According to the official statement, the low-frequency aspect can dive to 90Hz, and support dual-channel virtual surround sound, which has certain effects on watching movies. help. In addition, you can use the projector as a Bluetooth speaker, and there is no sense of violation from the design.

The Mijia Projector Youth Edition is equipped with the MIUI TV version, which is the same interface and operation logic as the Xiaomi TV. Therefore, Xiao Ai is also indispensable, but in the actual experience, small love students need to work harder. For example, I want to search for the “Betta” application available on TV. Xiao Ai has talked about “Betta”. I think engineers can optimize the TV and projection of the little love classmates, and the phone is obviously different in the used scene.

All in all, if you are a renter, the Mijia Projector Youth Edition is a good second choice compared to moving inconvenient TVs. In addition, you should have a fixed working time, basically no projection during the day, and just relax at night. In addition, you have to have a curtain that is thick enough to shade, so that you can enjoy the big picture during the day on weekends. Last but not least, you have to have a large white wall to project.
