Brightness – Fangor 230″ portable movie projector with tripod

This HD 1080P is great for the backyard or home theater. It has 7800LUX which is pretty bright. You can use your phone as well. You can connect it to your phone via your wifi or a USB connection. the videos are clean and pure HD. Colors are vivid and clear enough to read PowerPoint presentation material. 

Image Quality

The picture quality seemed to be true 1080p and audio was decent for a small projector. Picture was good through my Cable TV, a wireless TV transmitting-to-receiving device and BluRay player. Worked via HDMI cable via Laptop as well. 

Audio

The Bluetooth audio to a UE Megaboom was better but still lacked volume for an outside environment. When I used the audio jack to an small inexpensive subwoofer and speaker the sound was greatly enhanced and sounded theater quality.

How to connect Bluetooth speaker?

1. Turn ON Sound-bar to receive Bluetooth transmission
2. Switch off Bluetooth on all other nearby devices such as, iPhone, iPad, Mac, or laptops etc., that you do not want the Sound-bar to connect to. This is a temporary requirement.
3. Turn Bluetooth ON on the projector (Home>Setup>Bluetooth><ON>Scan
4. Turn OFF power on projector and then back ON
5. When you hear the BEEP on the Sound-bar, you are CONNECTED

Remote

The remote works great and has good options. The remote has a lot of picture adjustments though so I was able to watch a movie in the daytime by adjusting the picture. I had to readjust after dark though as the picture started to look bad with the decrease in lighting after dark. 

Setup

The projector was very easy to set up.  It’s great when you can connect to WiFi. I connected a chromecast and can stream anything The projector works well when it is about the middle of the screen and the keystone is at the middle. It also has a 60 Hz refresh rate. Another great feature is being able to zoom out to 60% of the default size.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Strong 4K and HD detail
  • Excellent use of HDR
  • Flexible for positioning

Cons

  • No 4K motion processing
  • SDR settings can vary
Specifications
  • Type: 3LCD
  • Resolution: 4K pixel shift
  • HDR: Yes
  • Contrast ratio: 40,000:1
  • Inputs: HDMI 2.0 (x2), USB 2.0 (x2)
  • 3D: Yes
  • Lamp: 3000 lumens
  • Lamp life: 5,000/3,000 hours (eco/normal)

There are differences on the inside, though. It’s still a 3LCD machine but the projection technology will only allow for a picture with a stated contrast ratio of 40,000:1 compared to the 100,000:1 on the TW7100. That said the picture performance is still excellent and very fair for the money.

The chassis and most of the features are the same apart from the missing internal speakers on this model which are a bit of waste of money anyway. This entry-level 4K projector is the baby brother of the Epson at No.1 in the list.

HDR handling and dark detail are very good and, considering the price point, this projector is capable of some brilliant detail. Black depth and motion processing isn’t a patch on more expensive models but the results are very appealing nonetheless and give a wonderfully naturally cinematic feel for very little outlay – a masterclass in budget projection.
