Native 1920x1080. Nice
Similar ones were £104 just before Christmas. All I'm saying is just wait for a low price. Stick a roku stick in and you have a smart projector.
What's the drawback to these compared to the ones in the £300 - £500 range?

Probably not as bright, but saying that these LED projectors are getting much better.

What's the drawback to these compared to the ones in the £300 - £500 range?


The drawback is these are advertised as 6000 lumens. A 6000 lumens projector costs close to £1,000. The well known brands specialised in projectors are usually making projectors of 1000-3000 lumens, only their top specs models are above this. They do this because it is costly to produce, so too expensive to sell. I tend to believe the well known brands rather than unknown Chinese brands.
This is probably reasonably priced and OK to use at home. If the specs they claim are true. Since they claim 6000 lumens which is more than likely not true, the question is if you can trust the rest of the specs. I personally prefer to get a used well known brand for this price, but this does not means this is bad. If you really want this, I suggest to wait until the price will come close to £100 and not to set your expectations too high. It is not all about brightness.

Read this article, you will see they compare Elephas claiming 1000 lumens with a Pico Genie 50 lumens and the Pico is brighter, despite the fact the Elephas should be 20 times brighter:

I actually own this Elphas Q9 projector. I bought it two weeks ago it is a fantastic projector. It is the only projector in its price range that I could find that can project text pin sharp clearly. That was really important to me as I use the projector to play Nintendo Switch games and I wanted to be able to read in game text clearly and easily and this does that. It's absolutely brilliant and using the projector is an amazing experience. It's one of my very best purchases of 2019. Highly recommended and excellent value for money. Like all lower cost fan cooled projectors it is a bit noisy. But I knew that going for it and the noise doesn't bother me at all as I wear ear buds. However I will say the noise isn't an irritating noise, it's the kind of almost gently rhythmic noise I think one could get used to and tune out. Certainly it's quite easy to drown out the fan nose simply by raising the volume on good speakers.
I haven't yet used my Elphas Q9 to project films/TV, but I expect it will be fantastic for that. I'm really looking forward to summer movie night parties. You can definitely buy better projectors but you'll have to pay a further £500- or more than this costs for that. This projector is simply good enough for now. In a couple of years anyway 8K projectors will be the top end norm so I don't see the sense in splashing out for a 4K projector now when 8K projectors have literally just started coming out.
Thanks Lionyone, good to get some feedback from someone that has the projector as the reviews on this product on amazon are mostly fake
I have used my Q9 in daylight. No problem. Obviously it looks by far best at night or with curtains drawn. But it's definitely usable by day. It's that good.

Yup. Literally nothing to lose. And a lot to gain.

It will probably not be ****** it will be acceptable in the dark. And yes, easy to send back. The question was what is the difference in between this and the £300-£500. The difference is these claim better specs that they have. I've got a Chinese projector and was acceptable until I've got an LG (worse specs) and the difference was huge in favour of LG. If you never owned one, this one will do the job.
Btw the set up on some projectors is a bit complicated. On the Elphas Q9 it's dead simple. Just plug everything in and three button clicks and you're in the projecting business! The hardest thing about set up is actually figuring the right height for the projector at the distance from the wall that you want to use it at. The easiest way to solve this is with a projector stand that you can also get from Amazon. But you can also make a rough stand from things you have to hand like tables and boxes and once you've got that figured you simply reproduce that stand every time. Easy.

This Elphas Q9 projector is acceptable in daylight. It's fantastic in the dark. It doesn't have as good keystone correction as the much more expensive projectors. But that doesn't bother me because the image is so sharp and well defined and undistorted and very colour accurate across a three meter wide screen that I don't need an absolutely perfect rectangle. You'd think a very slight parallelogram edge would be a problem but it isn't because you're not watching the extreme edges of the picture. Years ago I watched entire films on someone's projector that had a strong parallelogram effect. It wasn't a problem because the screen was so large and all the action was in the huge central area of the screen. It was unexpectedly actually very easy on the eyes. Sure it didn't look perfect at the edges, but it actually didn't matter for our viewing pleasure - we had great movie nights.

I would say there's no real drawback of the Elphas Q9 that makes any difference to viewing pleasure compared to those that cost a little bit more. Really to get a much better projector than this you need to get a short throw laser projector. But to get a short throw laser projector you're spending over £1000 on a projector.

You have one, so you know better, my comment was this projector is advertised as 6000 lumens and this can't be true. I said before it probably does the job, my Chinese projector does the job too and was happy with it until I've got a real brand.

I don't really care about lumens because they're meaningless. What matters to me is real world tests of specific machines. And right now we don't have anything to objectively compare lower cost machines against each other because there's no reviewing body for them. All we have is people buying specific machines and reporting back their real world experience of that machine. You can't say that your slightly more expensive machine is better than this Q9 Elphas. It might be, it might not be. You have no way of knowing without buying a Q9 Elphas and comparing it to your machine. I'll definitely say that there are machines that are much better than Q9 Elphas but that's because they're the latest short throw laser projectors costing over £1,000 and the way they work is completely different from the relatively low cost projectors both using similar technology that you and I have. You have a famous brand. I took a risk on a Chinese brand that probably copies famous brand tech almost part for part. But with the technology being similar it wouldn't be surprising if the results are similar.

Ok, I said before you have one, you know better. You do not care about the brightness, fair enough. The question is why will the manufacturer lie about the specs? I've posted in my previous comments an article, this brand claiming 1000 lumens and in reality was delivering only 50. This is mad, why will you do that? OK, maybe 800, 900 is acceptable, but 50??? And how can you trust a 'brand' who does this? This is what I am debating, not how good or bad the product is. You also suggest this cannot be compared with short throw laser projectors. Off course you can't. Buy yourself a known brand claiming the same specs, put it next to yours, draw a conclusion after that and return the branded one after that. Anyway, does not matter, my Chinese projector is half the specs of this and does the job, so sure this does a better job, so no point of debating.

Not all Chinese projectors are the same. China used to be crap but those days are long gone. Chinese products are still varied in quality, but hot damn at their best they're as good as western brands and sometimes significantly better. For example the best phone cameras in the world are definitely on the best Chinese phones. We in the West don't know much about Chinese brands but they're going to become normal for us just like Sony and BMW became normal for us.

Yes, I agree, I buy Xiaomi, Huawei, Anker, Aukey, Ravpower, Reolink, etc. I just posted a comment on a TP Link camera, suggesting Reolink (which is a Chinese brand) is probably better. I did not say the Chinese projectors are rubbish, I said they claim specs they don't have and for me it is a matter of trust rather than quality. If Elephas does good products, why should they claim fake specs?
