Projectors have come a long way: from lamp-based and unreliable even in the dark, to laser models that claim to replace televisions.

Pitfalls remain. Almost all easy-to-view projectors from different manufacturers cannot be called compact, mobile and affordable.

A year ago, JMGO quietly revolutionized the space with the launch of the JMGO N1 ULTRA on Kickstarter (here’s our review). Its feature was a new light projection technology, which helped create a compact projector with a rich and contrasting picture. It solved the issue of convenience and image quality, but costs more than 250,000 rubles.

Today we will look at the lightweight version of JMGO N1. It is two times lighter than the flagship, Delivers Full HD resolution and supports HDR, while maintaining daylight readability without a dedicated screen, works using the same patented method and instantly adjusts the keystone to correct changes.

So small, unforgettable even during the day

The JMGO company came to Russia just now, on November 1st. And launched all three versions of its laser projectors JMGO N1, JMGO N1 Pro and JMGO N1 Ultra.

They mainly consider brightness and smart settings, but choose their single light projection technology, which has become the key to this, to take projectors to new levels of compactness, readability and contrast.

Proprietary and Exclusive Documentation Explained Three-color MALC laser optics Just.

Three beams of green, red and blue pass through a series of mirrors and lenses, and then apply to a special micro-mirror diffuser.

This modular section transmits light into millions of individual beams and controls their impact using microlenses. However, each shape directs a different pixel for rich, detailed images with high contrast.

The younger model JMGO N1 is a cube measuring 187 x 165 x 191 mm and weighing 2 kg including the built-in hinge stand.

This projector produces images with a 1600:1 contrast ratio and 800 CVIA lumens of brightness. It differs from the calculation system in lumens, since it takes into account not only the force of impact, but also other parameters that affect the readability of the picture: contrast, detail and lack of noise.

Despite its basic place in the line, this version is a full-fledged flagship in the world of laser projectors.

It supports screen diagonal up to 150 inches without loss of clarity, rises up to 127°, automatically adjusts the image and clarity, produces an image without exposure to noise projectors.

Give preference to the model in the line; the main thing, besides the price, is that it is convenient to take with you. It is small, lightweight and designed to adapt to the user’s movement conditions.

What’s in the kit


JMGO N1 is connected in a box-case, which is convenient to take with you. Inside, in addition to the projector, there is a cable with a power supply, a remote control and a quick guide.

The remote control is simple and easy to navigate. The home screen, brightness, lighting buttons and large navigation bar are not far removed from the classic iPod controls. The coincidence is not entirely accidental, since the JMGO optical laboratory employs specialists who previously held positions at Apple and Samsung.

Next we have a nice miniature projector.

The design allows you to direct the projector even to the ceiling.

In its front part, in addition to the lens, there is a sensor that measures the angle at which the gadget is on the wall. He uses it to instantly, automatically and continuously correct all view changes and adjust focus without manual user mode..

Therefore, there is flexibility in where to place the projector. You can forget about the protection, screw it to the ceiling, place it on a cabinet higher, it must be placed only in the center of the room. The projector can be installed at an angle relative to the wall, and it will align the image itself.

There are three ports on the back: USB-A, HDMI and a 3.5 mm jack for external speakers.

USB 2.0 is needed to connect flash drives and hard drives. With them, you can copy media files to the projector’s permanent memory for viewing without the need to connect a computer.

An HDMI cable is not included, but that’s no big deal. Port here standard supports HDMI 2.1 with the largest throughput function. The wire with its reliable amplification from the price tag of the projector, basic with HDMI 2.0, would not allow one to feel the full potential of the device.

Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 are available for wireless connections, and there is an unusual application for these connections.

Experience of use and cool features

The JMGO N1 comes with full smart TV functionality built in, making it run on stock Android TV 11.

In addition to supporting Chromecast and video and music streaming services, you can install games on the projector. If you connect the controller via Bluetooth, then you don’t need any other device at all to have a full-fledged entertainment system.

There is an eye protection function. If a person is placed in the sensor projection area, the device will automatically reduce the brightness to a safe level on the screen.

JMGO has teamed up with Danish hi-fi audio veteran Dynaudio to add two speakers rated at 5W each. The projector’s audio component supports Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound.

It feels like the species has a generous supply, max out what you need at the party. The tracks are executed clearly and smoothly, so the corporate logo is not for words, but optional.

Against this background, JMGO N1 itself works quietly. Unlike noisy projects that need to cool their hot tubes, the laser model obviously runs cooler and doesn’t require much power to cool down. Accordingly, the operation of the fans is unnoticeable: from 25 dB to 35 dB.

What was unusual and at the same time convenient was the ability to point the projector up and down without steps, mounts or stands. The built-in holder allows you to easily move the projector to the ceiling so that you can watch movies or play games while lying down with maximum comfort.

And, yes, the power cord is located in the support, so there is no chance of accidentally pulling on the projector due to careless tilting.

Versatile for home and evening

The picture is absolutely readable even in daylight

Considering daylight performance, compactness, flexibility and stability with zero latency, the JMGO N1 with a 150-inch display, I think, has become the next generation of projectors.

There are characteristics here that make the device both a headphone and an entertainment system at the same time. See for yourself:

*Full HD resolution without grain
* The model supports HDR‑10.
* Has a brightness of 800 CVIA‑lumens.
* Has a high contrast ratio of 1600:1 with rich blacks.
* Primarily adjusts focus, height and brightness.
* Vertical hinge is adjustable by 127° to point at the ceiling
* Built-in full Android TV 11 with apps and games.

From my own experience I know how pleasant it is to deal with a gadget. It instantly turns an ordinary apartment into a dance floor, art object and cinema, depending on your plans. Turn on a visual track on the wall, a clip or a broadcast from your favorite DJ – and the evening is yours.

YUMGO No. 1 costs 99,990 rubles. For this money, he replaces the TV and immediately turns off the system with good sound. Thanks to new laser technology, it can be used on any surface at any time of the day. The exception, perhaps, is direct sunlight, but here the price is more modest than the flagship for 250,000 rubles.

And all this is achievable because the incredible brightness, even under the influence of sunlight, produces a juicy and absolutely readable picture. What makes JMGO N1 the best Full HD projector in principle.
