    Looking to get a portable projector. Recommendation needed

    Hi all, I am looking to get one for work use and for watching videos on streaming media. Would prefer one that does not cost more than HKD 4k. Any recommendation would be appreciated. Thanks!

    What sort of lighting conditions? The new "consumer grade" ones you see from vendors like Xiaomi etc seem to be pretty much ineffective with any amount of ambient light - completely ineffective if you've got a well light room.

    Thanks for your info. I am using it for bigger screen viewing where lighting condition is not bad so it has to be one that works ok at day time. Any brand that can do the job well and budget friendly ? Thanks again.

    Portable meaning you need it to have built in batteries?
    Xgimi has a few portable one's that could fit the backpack & has ample brightness
    Been using their CC version from 2016 & it's OK at 350ANSI & the Z6 which is 700ANSI but for better daytime viewing better go for 1000ANSI up if you leave the curtains open but if you have a light controlled environment 800ANSI is OK although not ideal

    Do note the built-in batteries will wear out over the years Or can pose problems like leakage IF your not going to use it outdoors it would be better getting one that directly plugs in the mains. Xgimi just released the Z6X Pro which is small & lite & now has 1000ANSI & other new features BUT uses only a 0.33DMD & via XPR to get 1080p.

    I would recommend the Dangbei Mars Pro 4K but it's over the budget

    Thanks for the trouble with all those images. 700ANSI really gets you great image. Perhaps I should consider paying more to get a higher version lol.
