Have you noticed that projectors have become much more compact over the past few years? That’s very good on the one hand, because you can carry it from one room to another, or even take the projector with you from home.
However, the smaller the projector, the smaller the LCD screen inside it, so it has lower brightness and generally worse image quality. I am talking about LED projectors now because laser projectors are a bit different.
I have a new projector called Xnano X7A. You know, this is the biggest projector I have tested in 2023. However, it has very good features, such as native Full HD resolution, 4K and even 8K support, 1000ANSI brightness, dual stereo speakers, and Google TV operating system.
In this article, I want to do a full review of the new Xnano projector and find out who and what it is for.
On one side of the box, we can see the projector on the table and on the other side it is on the ceiling. As I said before, this projector is designed for home use.
There is another black box with a user manual, power cable, HDMI cable, kickstand and remote control.
As I mentioned, this is the biggest projector I’ve had this year. So, let’s start talking about the design with its dimensions.
There is also a very big lens on the front. The sensor in the corner is autofocus.
Air flows through the projector and comes out on the left side.
Let’s turn on the projector and look at the operating system.
When you first power on the projector, it prompts you to set up Google TV, such as connect remote control, select your region, connect to Wi-Fi network, sign into your Google account, and install the apps.
First, we can go to the installed apps, such as Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Apple TV, YouTube Kids and YouTube Music.
Then we can continue watching videos on YouTube or select a movie on Apple TV or Google Play Movies and TV.
In fact, the projector not only has Google TV, but also Simple Launcher.
You can press the Source button on the remote control and select Simple Launcher in the Signal Source menu.
Finally, you can read instructions and support from the manufacturer.
You will most likely be using a projector with a Google TV system, so let’s get back to it. To do this, simply press the Home button on the remote control.
Let’s take a look at the Google TV settings.
In the settings, we can set the device name.
To do this, you need to select Pair Accessories, and turn on your Bluetooth device.
When the device is detected, you can select it and pair it.
Okay, before we move on to projection quality, let’s measure the noise level.
Xnano X7A is a large projector, and it has a big cooling system inside that makes quite a bit of noise.
So, it is a big and noisy projector, so I think the best place for it is on the ceiling.
Now let’s talk about projection size. The new Xnano projector has a long throw ratio. It means that you need to place it far away from the wall to get a large screen.
You know, the projection quality of the big screen is just as good as the smaller one.
You know, the Xnano X7A has some of the best image quality of any projector I have ever tested, because it features native 1080P resolution and a large 5.8-inch LCD screen.
The picture is very bright, and maybe even too bright in some videos. I would even like to make the brightness a little lower because it cuts my eyes in total darkness.
However, it is great for watching dark movies. Usually, budget projectors have problems with dark movies because they don’t show details because of their low brightness.
Xnano X7A doesn’t have this problem, so you can watch any movie you want.
The projector is also very good for playing games and watching sports matches.
By the way, I believe the brightness of the Xnano X7A is 1000 ANSI lumens because the image is clearly visible even in a room with light.
You know, this is probably the best projector I have tested for use in a bright room. The projection in a room with light is almost the same as in total darkness, but the colors are a bit dimmer. However, the details are very clear.
I forgot to tell you about the built-in speakers.
I would recommend connecting external speakers to create a home theater.
You know, Xnano X7A could be the best projector I have tested, and it really is in some respects. The projector has a very high brightness of 1000ANSI Lumens, so you can watch your favorite shows or YouTube videos both day and night.
It also has a clear picture thanks to native Full HD resolution and a big 5.8-inch LCD screen.
Another feature of this projector is the Google TV operating system with Netflix, Apple TV, Prime Video, and YouTube pre-installed.
However, as I said before, Xnano X7A could be the best projector I’ve tested, but I can’t call it that. I don’t like the large size and weight of the projector. In addition, it is quite noisy. The only place for this projector, in my opinion, is on the ceiling.
So, if you are looking for a home theater projector with great image quality that can be ceiling mounted, Xnano X7A is the option for you.
