Unicima V1-WiFi projector review: compact, lightweight and almost portable Review

Maria J. Danford

The Unicima V1-WiFi projector has a neat carrying deal with at the top of the unit and is small in size at 8.fifteen x 7.64 x 6.seventy seven inches. It weighs only 2lbs 2oz devoid of its electricity supply it appears like the perfect transportable projector.

Even so, the V1-Wi-Fi has no on-board rechargeable battery and needs to be related to a electricity supply to get the job done. You could get a electricity station these types of as the Bluetti AC50S with you to be capable to use this projector on a camping trip, but it would be considerably much better if the V1-Wi-Fi experienced a rechargeable battery.

There is a 19V DC electricity input at the back of the projector, a USB type-A and an HDMI port. There is a electricity indicator mild and an IR getting mild. There is also a jack for audio. There is no SD card slot in the V1-Wi-Fi .

The entrance of the projector has the lens and the grille for its onboard dual-channel 3W speakers. On top of the projector, there is a wheel for concentrating the lens, and at the base, there is a screw gap to mount the projector on the ceiling.

At a resolution of 1920x1080p, the V1-Wi-Fi will project up to a one hundred-inch screen from about two.5 meters from the screen.

Its distinction rating appears sensible at 6500:one — nonetheless, this is substantially much less than the ten,000:one distinction made available by the Vankyo Leisure 530W I looked at earlier this month, but the screen impression manufactured is quite very good in very low mild disorders.

Major ZDNET Evaluations

According to Amazon, the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi is intended to be rated at 7000 lumens, but I suspect that this determine is fabricated. The V1-Wi-Fi is not that shiny in whole daylight but sensible in darkened rooms.

It is critical to know the difference among lumen and ANSI lumen and select devices rated with ANSI lumen if you will need very good brightness to project in daylight.

The V1-Wi-Fi has a handbook emphasis and handbook keystone adjustment of up to 40%. You can also manually zoom from sixty — a hundred and twenty% working with the distant management (AAA batteries are not involved with the projector).

You will will need to use the distant management to work this projector. There are not lots of buttons on the physique of the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi apart from the electricity button on the top of the unit. Press the electricity button on the top of the projector two times to switch the projector on.

The method configurations are effortless to configure working with the distant management, and there are a few of applications pre-set up, these types of as YouTube, Netflix and Aptoid Television.

Modifying the keystone is effortless with the distant management, and you can connect the projector working with WI-Fi or the net to cast your cellular unit images to the V1-Wi-Fi .

It is effortless to connect the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi to your cellular unit and to cast your screen. I am fairly dubious about the 3W speaker ranking, which I imagine is optimistic at best. The sound output of the V1-Wi-Fi is not loud at all — even at one hundred% volume.

You will will need to connect the projector to a Bluetooth speaker for mates to listen to the sound if you use the V1-Wi-Fi outside the house. Even so, the audio is very clear with minimal distortion more than the audio jack or headset.

The Unicima V1-Wi-Fi is a sensible projector that could be drastically much better if it experienced a rechargeable battery to make it actually transportable.

Make absolutely sure that you use the projector in a very low mild environment and connect it to a speaker with a first rate sound output if you want absolutely everyone in the room to listen to the sound.

The V1-Wi-Fi  sells for under $190,  with a code V1WIFI88 to get a more $30 price reduction. Other projectors in the marketplace are brighter, louder, and, like the XGIMI Mogo Pro, have rechargeable batteries to make them completely transportable. Ideally, the subsequent variation of the Unicima projector will handle some of these challenges in the subsequent update.

For an economical projector that is light-weight and has a range of connectivity and application choices, the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi projector is a very low-charge choice for a secondary speaker in your household or small office environment and a sensible backup projector if your principal projector fails. Make absolutely sure you have an exterior speaker or a headset to take pleasure in a very good range of sound.
