A couple of days ago, a new projector called Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF went on sale. This is a premium ultra-short focal length laser projector from 14 to 50 cm with projected image up to 150-inches, 4K and 3D support, and brightness of 9000 ANSI lumens.
The Chinese manufacturer says that Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF 4K Ultra Short Throw Laser Projector is a perfect alternative to a large LCD TV. Is it really so? Let’s find out.
By the way, the same projector is known as Appotronics A300. To be honest, we do not know how it happened, but just keep this in mind!
Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF: Design
Like most other Xiaomi gadgets, the new WEMAX L1668FCF 4K projector looks simple and elegant. It has similar design to other expensive Xiaomi projectors, for example, Xiaomi WeMax One Pro FMWS02C.
The new projector has a rectangle shape. It comes only in black matte color. The body is made of ABS plastic. The device has a small size – 56.8 x 47.5 x 18.3 cm. You can place the projector on a small shelf or coffee table.
Thanks to its appearance, Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF 4K looks harmoniously in any apartment or office.
The entire front panel is occupied by a speaker grille, which offers a cinematic sound effect. In the center we can see a large golden button to turn on the projector.
A laser for projecting an image is located on the top panel in a small recess.
The side panels are occupied by cooling grids. There are two wheels for self-focusing of the image in the corners. Also, there is USB 3.0 connector on the right side.
Now let’s look at the back panel. All the ports and connectors for connecting various devices are located here: three HDMI connectors, one USB 3.0, AV Input, Audio Output, S/PDIF and Ethernet port. Also, there is a power connector.
As you understand, ports allow you to connect laptop, game console or any other device to the projector. You can also connect external speakers for professional sound. However, it seems that you will not need them, because Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF 4K is equipped with powerful speakers.
The projector stands on small rubber feet. They prevent the projector from heating up and sliding on the surface.
Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF: Specifications
As we wrote earlier, WEMAX L1668FCF is an ultra-short focal length projector from 14 to 50 cm. This means that you can place the projector at a short distance from the wall and enjoy the large screen with a clear picture. The projector creates an image size of 80 to 150 inches. The aspect ratio is 16:9 or 4:3.
Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF 4K projector has a native resolution of 4K or 3840 x 2160 pixels. Just to clarify, this is four times more than Full HD 1080P!
The projector has a maximum brightness of 9000 ANSI lumens and 250 nits. Even in daylight, it projects a bright and detailed image that compares to LCD TV. The contrast ratio is 4000:1.
The laser is manufactured using ALPD®3.0 technology, which is well proven in other Xiaomi projectors, and leads the market in image brightness, color and contrast.
Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF runs on Android operating system, and supports Bluetooth 4.1 wireless networks and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. The projector supports memory cards up to 64 GB.
Of course, you can watch movies and videos in 3D, but for this you need to buy special glasses.
The new projector from Xiaomi is not noisy, because the maximum noise level is 38 dB.
To protect the eyes, the manufacturer used special infrared sensors on the front panel. Sensors are triggered when a person looks directly into the laser. If someone gets too close to the laser – it automatically turns off. This is a very useful feature, for example, if you have small children who love to look at interesting things.
