The Unicima V1-WiFi projector has a neat carrying manage at the top rated of the device and is smaller in measurement at eight.15 x 7.64 x six.seventy seven inches. It weighs only 2lbs 2oz without the need of its power supply it appears to be like the excellent portable projector.

On the other hand, the V1-Wi-Fi has no on-board rechargeable battery and needs to be related to a power supply to operate. You could get a power station this kind of as the Bluetti AC50S with you to be in a position to use this projector on a camping excursion, but it would be much improved if the V1-Wi-Fi had a rechargeable battery.

There is a 19V DC power enter at the again of the projector, a USB style-A and an HDMI port. There is a power indicator light-weight and an IR getting light-weight. 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 rated of the projector, there is a wheel for focusing the lens, and at the base, there is a screw hole to mount the projector on the ceiling.

At a resolution of 1920x1080p, the V1-Wi-Fi will project up to a 100-inch display screen from about two.5 meters from the display screen.

Its distinction rating appears to be acceptable at 6500:one — nonetheless, this is substantially considerably less than the ten,000:one distinction made available by the Vankyo Leisure 530W I appeared at previously this month, but the display screen image generated is pretty superior in low light-weight situations.

Top ZDNET Assessments

In accordance to Amazon, the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi is supposed to be rated at 7000 lumens, but I suspect that this figure is fabricated. The V1-Wi-Fi is not that vibrant in comprehensive daylight but acceptable in darkened rooms.

It is vital to know the variation concerning lumen and ANSI lumen and pick out gadgets rated with ANSI lumen if you need to have superior brightness to project in daylight.

The V1-Wi-Fi has a manual emphasis and manual keystone adjustment of up to forty%. You can also manually zoom from 60 — a hundred and twenty% working with the distant handle (AAA batteries are not included with the projector).

You will need to have to use the distant handle to work this projector. There are not lots of buttons on the system of the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi aside from the power button on the top rated of the device. Push the power button on the top rated of the projector twice to flip the projector on.

The method settings are easy to configure working with the distant handle, and there are a pair of applications pre-set up, this kind of as YouTube, Netflix and Aptoid Tv set.

Adjusting the keystone is easy with the distant handle, and you can link the projector working with WI-Fi or the net to forged your cellular system illustrations or photos to the V1-Wi-Fi .

It is easy to link the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi to your cellular system and to forged your display screen. I am relatively doubtful about the 3W speaker score, which I consider is optimistic at ideal. The audio output of the V1-Wi-Fi is not loud at all — even at 100% volume.

You will need to have to link the projector to a Bluetooth speaker for buddies to hear the audio if you use the V1-Wi-Fi outside. On the other hand, the audio is distinct with little distortion about the audio jack or headset.

The Unicima V1-Wi-Fi is a acceptable projector that could be considerably improved if it had a rechargeable battery to make it truly portable.

Make absolutely sure that you use the projector in a low light-weight setting and link it to a speaker with a first rate audio output if you want all people in the area to hear the audio.

The V1-Wi-Fi  sells for less than $one hundred ninety,  with a code V1WIFI88 to get a more $30 discounted. Other projectors in the market place are brighter, louder, and, like the XGIMI Mogo Professional, have rechargeable batteries to make them fully portable. With any luck ,, the following edition of the Unicima projector will deal with some of these concerns in the following update.

For an affordable projector that is light-weight and has a selection of connectivity and application choices, the Unicima V1-Wi-Fi projector is a low-value choice for a secondary speaker in your property or smaller office environment and a acceptable backup projector if your key projector fails. Make absolutely sure you have an exterior speaker or a headset to love a superior selection of audio.
