JMGO N1 Ultra
JMGO N1 Pro
Relying on the advantages of high brightness, high contrast, and high color reproduction, the triple color laser light source is undoubtedly one of the ideal light sources for projectors. It is also the strongest light source technology on the market, and it is widely used in IMAX theaters. However, limited by technology and cost, triple color laser projectors are not very popular for home theater. The price of most triple color laser projectors starts from $1499, which is not very affordable.
Until last year, JmGO launched the N1 Pro and N1 Ultra, which successfully pulled projection products with a triple color laser light source to under $1499, attracting a lot of attention. Unexpectedly, just a few months later, JMGO took it a step further and released the JMGO N1 in the $500 price range, bringing the smart projector into the era of tricolor laser light sources.
Now, we can take a closer look at whether the triple color laser light source popularization pioneer JMGO N1 can subvert our previous perception of projectors in this price range.
Lightweight Body and Integrated Gimbal Structure
In terms of appearance, the color scheme of JMGO N1 is mainly off-white, which looks simple and advanced. The custom textured surface feels very comfortable to the touch. The body is very small, about the size of a common ladies bucket bag.
The weight of the JMGO N1 projector is only 2kg, which is about the same weight as a MacBook Pro. Using the bottom handle, even girls can easily carry the projector with one hand.
The JMGO N1 projector has an integrated gimbal, which inherits the family design of JMGO N1 Pro and JMGO N1 Ultra. The integrated gimbal allows you to rotate the main body and adjust the projection angle. It can freely adjust the angle of 127°, and supports stepless hovering.
The gimbal can basically cover most of the angles used by users. It also allows using a projector on the bed and directly projecting on the ceiling. Lying down and watching movies has become a daily routine.
Thanks to the PTZ image correction function, JMGO N1 has excellent intelligent image correction capabilities, which can achieve better auto focus and automatic keystone correction effects. While the user is adjusting, the JMGO N1 will essentially end the insensitivity correction instantly.
No matter how the projection angle changes, the image will be positive, no manual adjustments are required, and you can enjoy watching movies right away.
In terms of interfaces, the interfaces of JMGO N1 are mainly concentrated at the back, such as USB 2.0, HDMI 2.1, and 3.5mm audio port. It is very convenient to connect external U disks and laptops.
Finally, the JMGO N1 comes with a custom packing box with a handle, made of recyclable and environmentally friendly materials. For friends who like to go camping, it is very convenient to have such a suitable storage suitcase.
IMAX Laser Theater-Level Experience
Of course, smart functions are the icing on the cake, while the most important part is the projection performance. When it comes to the projection specs, the JMGO N1 is the same as the previous N1 Pro and N1 Ultra. It is equipped with the MALC triple color laser light engine developed by JMGO. Compared with the traditional laser optical machine, it has smaller dimensions and better heat dissipation performance. It also supports modular development, which can match the needs of different complete machines and lower the cost. This is why the JMGO N1 can bring the triple color laser technology to the $500 price point.
In terms of image quality, the new JMGO projector is based on the latest triple color laser optics technology using modular laser stacking technology, a four-layer compound eye module with 400 divisions and LSR speckle elimination technology.
With the nominal 800CVIA lumen brightness, the projector has better performance in terms of brightness uniformity, contrast and clarity. JMGO N1 has great advantages in color performance, such as 110% BT.2020 color gamut, 1600:1 contrast ratio, and excellent color accuracy of Delta<1. Thanks to the fact that the triple color laser light source does not have the harmful blue light, the JMGO N1 can eliminate the threat of harmful blue light from the source, and you no longer have to worry about hurting your eyes when watching movies.
The 0.33DMD chip is found for the first time in the $500 price range, and it provides a superior viewing experience on the JMGO N1. After actual use in a room with strong light, the high brightness of the JMGO N1 still provides a normal picture display.
The projection performance after turning off the lights is even better, thanks to the brightness uniformity of up to 95%. The brightness in the center of the picture and the surrounding and corners are almost the same. The super contrast and wide color gamut make the picture visual experience better. At the same time, thanks to the LSR dynamic speckle reduction technology of the JmGO N1, its speckle reduction rate reaches 96%, which can effectively eliminate the common speckle problem of triple color laser projection, making the picture cleaner and brighter, and the watching process more comfortable.
In addition to the excellent hardware configuration, JMGO N1 has picture modes such as colorful, vivid, standard, and custom. In addition to colorful and bright colors, users can also choose the other settings according to their own preferences. It is a bonus for watching movies at home.
From my personal experience, no matter which mode is used, the overall picture of the JMGO N1 is very close to the original picture display.
Many people want to buy a projector to play games on a large screen. Thanks to the HDMI 2.1 video interface, the JMGO N1 can achieve 4K 120Hz high-resolution input. It is compatible with PS5, Switch and other game consoles.
The Chinese OS with No Advertisement
Talking about operating system, first, you should know that JMGO N1 is equipped with MT9671 chipset from MediaTek. It also has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. This is enough to keep the projector working smoothly.
The JMGO N1 projector has only been released in China, so it runs on the new ad-free Bonfire OS. I will not dwell on its functions and apps, because the global version of JMGO N1 will most likely run on Android TV.
The King of Picture Quality in This Price Range
Testing the projector for the past few days, I realized that JMGO N1 is much better than other projectors in this price range. It made a deep impression on me in terms of image quality, contrast and brightness.
The JMGO N1 is a unique and revolutionary projector because it begins a new era of affordable triple color laser projectors.
