The latest evolution of Xgimi’s 4K Ultra HD video projectors is called Horizon Ultra. Announced as the first long focal length model compatible with Dolby Vision, it promises more precise colors thanks to a dual light source combining diodes and laser, while retaining the strengths of previous devices.

The Xgimi Horizon Ultra is one of the best Android TV video projectors passed through our laboratory. The automatic image adjustment system is still as efficient as ever; above all, the image is now perfectly calibrated in SDR, a first for the Chinese manufacturer. For the rest, this video projector retains its strengths, the very practical all-in-one concept, an efficient audio system and quiet operation, but also its weaknesses such as a restricted Netflix app and limited contrast.

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).

Alternatively

The Hisense C1 is a very good 4K trilaser projector that ticks a lot of boxes. It is easy to install and use, focusing and keystone are done efficiently and it is compatible with all current HDR formats, in addition to being very quiet. The downside essentially concerns the colorimetry, which is rather imprecise out of the box, whether in SDR or HDR. You will have to calibrate it to get the best out of it.
