If you are looking for a compact projector offering good image quality and for an affordable price for these services, the XGIMI Elfin does the job perfectly, especially at a reduced price: 551 euros instead of 650.
Unknown in Europe to the general public, the XGIMI brand is nevertheless very popular in China among video projector enthusiasts. Its Elfin model is what is called a picoprojector, that is to say a model focusing on the small format, but with a technical sheet that has nothing to envy to larger devices, well almost. We can afford it for less than 600 euros on Amazon while its original price is close to 1000 euros.
The Features of XGIMI Elfin Projector
- A projected image in native Full HD with HDR 10+
- The contribution of 3D and a low latency mode
- Integration of Android TV in version 10
Instead of a usual price of 649 euros, the Elfin video projector from the XGIMI brand is now available on sale at 551 euros on Amazon.
The product is sold by the brand’s online store, but is shipped by Amazon.
A large image of amazing quality for its size
Less than 1 kg on the scale and a height of only 5 cm, in other words, the XGIMI Elfin is far from taking up space. However, it is a picoprojector that clearly has a lot of strength. It has a lamp delivering a Full HD definition that can be displayed up to 120 inches. We are even entitled to HDR10 + certified image processing and a brightness measured at 800 ANSI lumens to theoretically guarantee clear images even in broad daylight. Be careful though, we recommend use in conditions with as little light as possible to guarantee an optimal experience.
The XGIMI Elfin also features autofocus and keystone correction technology. In particular, this allows the projector to display a framed image even if the projector is placed at an angle. A game mode makes it possible to reduce the delay in the display in order to be able to connect its console and benefit from a latency reduced to a minimum, which is not necessarily the strong point of this type of device.
Finally, on the sound side, it embeds 2 Harman Kardon 6 W speakers to guarantee native sound specialization with Dolby Audio certification. We will always prefer a real sound installation to take advantage of it, such as a sound bar for example, even if it is an effective backup solution on the move.
Everything included, even Android TV
XGIMI has understood the consumer multimedia positioning of its video projector. This is why the Elfin integrates a Wifi connection and above all an Android TV rom in version 10.0 to have access to all its multimedia content (Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, etc.) without having to connect another device. Everything can be controlled directly from the remote control. Finally, to connect a game console or other, the device has an HDMI 2.0 input and a USB 2.0 port.
