In recent years, micro projectors have developed rapidly, but the ensuing fog trap has also become one of the reasons why many people dare not start. Once a few thousand yuan of digital equipment enters the pit, the hard-storage money is likely to be paid. All running water. Therefore, before choosing a mini projector, we must avoid these four traps.
You can experience the cinema effect without leaving home! This is the convenience brought by miniature projectors, but the so-called “popularity, right and wrong”, in the uneven projector market, there are still many shoddy products hidden, which requires us to develop the ability to be eye-catching. To distinguish their true and false, the following four key points are summarized.
Trap one, the pursuit of high brightness
Brightness is an important factor to test the quality of the picture. Too low the brightness and the whitening of the picture affects the viewing effect. This makes many small partners think that since it is too low, it is good to choose high brightness, but in fact this is also wrong. Brightness Too high is like direct sunlight, which will irritate the eyes for a long time. Most people choose micro-projectors to protect their eyes. This is counterproductive.
So the question is, what should be the standard for brightness? In fact, it has a lot to do with the viewing environment and screen size. For example, when viewing movies in a small space, the effect of 120 lumens to 300 lumens at home is quite satisfactory. Please do not expect to display clear images under strong daylight conditions. It is still used in a dark environment. If you don’t think that the micro projector can be used in the daytime in an open space outdoor, according to past experience, outdoor daytime use generally requires a large projector with about 10,000 lumens or more. Due to the limitation of the body size and the built-in battery of the micro-projector, the lumens are generally only 80-500 lumens. If you need to use higher lumens, you can only choose the traditional projector 2500-4000 lumens.
Let’s talk about the screen size. At present, a 60-80-inch screen is suitable for 120~300 lumens (when the light is off), and a 100-inch screen is suitable for more than 1000 lumens. That is to say, as the screen increases, the required brightness is also Will improve. Of course, if you don’t want to use your brain, many caring businesses have also marked the best projection distance. For example, the best projection distance of ViewSonic M1 mini Plus is 1m-2m, so you won’t be wrong when you buy it!
Trap two, distinguish the resolution
Generally, the resolution includes standard resolution and compatible resolution. Standard resolution refers to the original resolution of the projected image, that is, the real resolution, while compatible resolution refers to the resolution of the input signal that the TV can input. We must distinguish between the two, don’t be confused by it, we need to pay attention to it when choosing.
Under normal circumstances, businesses will indicate standard resolutions, mostly 480P, 720P, 1080P, 4K. The higher the resolution, the clearer the picture quality hierarchy, but be careful that the difference between (real resolution) and (supported resolution) is very large. , (True Resolution) refers to the original resolution of the projected image, that is, the true resolution, and (Support Resolution) refers to the resolution of the signal that the projector can input, and friends must distinguish between the two and don’t be confused by it. , We need to focus on when choosing.
Just like the standard resolution of ViewSonic M2 is 1920*1080, its exclusive Cinema SuperColor+ technology and Rec.709 theater-level color can make the picture quality more realistic and truly restore the details of each scene.
Trap three, more functions
In terms of function, friends will also enter a misunderstanding of “greed for more”, thinking that this can satisfy all aspects of life, but in fact, too many functions will increase the burden of memory space. In the end, the use of multi-functions will not be complete, and it will also affect the viewing speed. It can be said that the gains outweigh the losses.
Therefore, it is recommended that friends choose suitable functions, and only the ones that suit them are the most important! For example, the upgraded version of ViewSonic M1+, the integrated harman/kardon speaker can provide unimaginable sound effects, bringing you a more immersive entertainment experience. Another example is its mobile phone screen projection function, if you want to play games on the big screen, easy job! The upgraded version of ViewSonic M1+ can do it all for you.
Trap four, parallel imports (commonly known as [parallel imports])
[Parallel Imported Goods] Generally called “parallel imports”, goods that are not imported by formal agents. In contrast, goods imported through formal agents are commonly known as “licensed goods”. Since parallel imports are not imported by formal agents and the source is unknown, there is a risk of buying counterfeit goods. Because there is no direct or indirect authorized agent imported by the head office, if there is a problem with the goods, there may be no way to ask for help when there are problems like gambling Taking care of yourselves and others is like creating electronic waste.
There are also some [Taobao OEMs], which are shoddy, and some have falsely high parameters to deceive consumers. Generally, Taobao or domestic parallel imports have no real support in Hong Kong if they encounter software or hardware problems. They need to be sent back to China for maintenance. The cost of customs declaration for electrical appliances is very high and the maintenance is completed. The problem may not be solved yet, and it is a waste of time that is not worth the loss.
Mini projectors are too messy, so you must prepare small homework before choosing. If there are problems, please consult with reputable merchants for comparison. Recently, a large number of unscrupulous merchants have appeared in the market for long-term and serious violations of relevant product descriptions (bad business practices). The scope covered by the Trade Descriptions Ordinance of the Amendment Ordinance is to prohibit merchants from making certain unscrupulous business practices to consumers, including making false trade descriptions for services, misleading omissions, threatening business behaviors, and bait advertising Promotion, soliciting and reselling behavior, and improperly accepting payments. I hope to remind everyone here to stay away from the trap and enjoy the fun of the big picture with peace of mind!!!
