Review of the XGIMI Horizon Pro (4K Projector)
Good new smart TVs are becoming affordable over recent years, delivering spectacular picture quality at much cheaper prices than before. Switching to a next-generation technology, the XGIMI Horizon Pro appears to be another in a long line of XG products that appear to be perfect for all manner of uses. In this review we take a quick look at the Horizon Pro and see if it meets the high expectations of potential buyers, as well as providing what is expected from a projector of this sort.
The main selling point of the Horizon Pro is the integration with Google Assistant – a Google smartphone interface that offers many useful functions. As such, the application of Google Assistant on the projector screen should prove highly useful to anyone who need access to a smartphone, as well as providing a ready-made solution for the projector screen itself. This works well, in that the projector screen can be accessed just by pressing a small padlock icon on the bottom right of the screen. Once this is held down, the phone will lock into place, allowing easy access to any information that is being shared via the phone.
The cost of the screen is quite a major selling point, however. While the actual cost of the Horizon Pro is confidential between the manufacturer and retailer, we do know that the cost of the whole package – including the Android TV box – is about the same as other popular brands of high-quality HD TVs. In terms of measured resolution, the difference between the included screen and other competing models is only around ten percent, meaning that the Horizon Pro makes a very good value indeed. The added benefit of having Android OS pre-installed means that users will also have access to all of the apps that come pre-loaded on theTV, something which many users will find valuable.
One of the biggest selling points of the Horizon Pro is its sleek design. It looks almost like a modern television, with a simple black matte finish that complements the colours of the display. While most projectors on the market today sport an over-sized and bright screen, this one manages to have a subdued, natural look that doesn’t dominate a room. This may appeal to those who want a more minimalist option, or those who are happy to have a small TV sitting on a stand. It is also a great choice for anyone who is looking for a projector with the most advanced picture and sound correction features available.
In terms of picture quality, many believe the Horizon Pro to be among the best available on the market. The company has developed technology that allows it to deliver a true high-definition image with absolutely no problem. This is thanks to its wide screen which provides an even, sharp image across the whole screen. If you want to watch movies on your big screen HDTV, but aren’t happy with the quality, this is an ideal choice as it offers a large viewing area.
Perhaps the most important selling point of the Horizon Pro is its advanced image processing and color correction. Thanks to a host of cutting edge refinements, the software used by the pro, referred to as the Google Assistant, is able to deliver highly accurate images with just a few clicks of the mouse. This is made possible thanks to a powerful processor called the Digital Light Processing (DLP), which is located within the Android TV 10.0 operating system. The DLP processor can target and eliminate problematic colors, as well as removing red eye and other image distortion which could impair the viewing experience. The result is an image that looks absolutely perfect.
Another key selling feature of the XGIMI Horizon Pro lies in its contrast ratio. In terms of picture quality, there is very little competition when compared to competing brands. As such, many would be customers of these projectors will be pleasantly surprised at the level of detail and sharpness their chosen device can display. In addition to its apparent contrast ratio, another selling feature of the two is the fact that it offers near perfect viewing angle performance. That is to say, it will display a picture on a horizontal or vertical orientation, providing a perfect picture plane that eliminates any distortion caused by screen rotation. Other notable attributes of the XGIMI Horizon Pro include the absence of screen burn where the colors on the screen appear as a result of having been tinted.
The next thing that people may be interested in knowing about the XGIMI Horizon Pro 4K projector screen is its brightness. The screen brightness of this device is ranked among the highest available in terms of what the industry standard calls “white brightness”. Furthermore, the company has designed its technology to provide near zero blue light output during the hours of darkness. What this means is that it will offer an excellent level of brightness during daytime for those who use LCD TVs with backlighting options. In terms of brightness, the technology provided by the XGIMI Horizon Pro has achieved near perfection, making it one of the most reliable brands in the market.
