If you're like me, then you love going to the movies with your family. But sometimes, the cost of tickets and snacks can add up. So what does a parent have to do? Bring the movies to your home and have your own private cinema. But what if you could bring the cinema-like experience too? With the LUMOS RAY Home Cinema Projector, you can do just that!
We have televisions at home, in the living room and in all the bedrooms. And, we are pretty much content watching movies, YouTube videos and Netflix series on them. So I never thought of needing a projector. But my mind changed when I got to try the LUMOS RAY Home Cinema Projector.
LUMOS is Singapore and Malaysia's #1 Home Cinema Brand which is now in the Philippines. And, they sent me the LUMOS RAY Smart to try. So in this blog post, I'll be talking about our experiences with this device and letting you know whether or not it's worth your money. Spoiler alert: it is! Keep reading to find out why.
LUMOS RAY Smart Projector review
Minimalist, Premium and Elegant Look
First of all, let’s talk about its minimalist yet premium and elegant look. It can be placed anywhere in your home without causing a nuisance.
|The projector comes with remote control, a user manual,|
power cable, AV cable, and HDMI cable.
With its compact, portable, and handy design, it can easily be moved from room to room so you can enjoy your favorite content anywhere in your home.
It's great for outdoor use too. Perfect for outdoor movie nights during outings or gatherings with family and friends. Planning on taking it on our beach trip soon!
Inbuilt Apps (Netflix, YouTube and more!)
It is Wi-Fi enabled with inbuilt Casting Apps, Bluetooth, and the two most used apps at home - Netflix and YouTube. In fact, the first thing we did when we tried the projector was watch videos on YouTube.
Then next, we watched Stranger Things on Netflix! Yep, the never-ending Stranger Things. :D
By the way, it also has its own operating system (Android OS), so you can download other apps you want.
Wireless Mirror Casting
I tried casting my mobile phone just to see if it would work, which, of course, it did. And that's just it. We didn’t do anything else. But it will be great for playing mobile games, watching videos on social media, browsing through the pictures saved on your phone or even Zooming calling.
Aside from the massive screen, its visual clarity is really impressive! The colors are vivid and crisp, not grainy or washed out. According to my son, he enjoys watching on the projector more than on the TV.
Of course, it is highly recommended to use the projector on a clean white wall and in the dark. Almost all the walls in our house are covered with printed wallpaper, except for this wall, which we used to project the projector on. We have white but textured wallpaper on that wall, so it's not that flawless, but I'm really impressed with the resolution. As you can see, it's very clear!
Technically speaking, it comes with 720p HD Clear resolution and can support a 1080p BluRay resolution. It comes with a bright 3,000 Lumens compared to other normal portable projectors which are around 1,000.
The projected screen size is 50-150 inches. If you have a smaller space at home, don’t worry because around a 3m distance can project an impressive 100-inch screen.
It comes with inbuilt Dolby Audio, making it powerful enough by itself and giving an impressive cinematic surround.
Plug and Play
The LUMOS RAY Smart Home Cinema Projector is incredibly easy to use and even your kids can help set it up (My kids have been using it by themselves!) You literally only need to plug it in to begin enjoying all of your entertainment. Of course, when you're using it for the first time, you have to connect it to the wifi and complete the setup.
The LUMOS RAY Smart Home Cinema Projector is a great projector for anyone looking for an affordable, high-quality option. This projector has amazing features that are perfect for home entertainment and offers a lot of value for the price.
So, if you're looking for an affordable and easy way to make movie night more fun for the whole family, consider picking up a LUMOS RAY Projector.
