Today I have a budget projector called WZATCO C2 with native Full HD resolution on the test.
Earlier, I already tested a large number of inexpensive projectors, but today’s hero is quite popular on the Internet and I decided to check why.
If anyone is interested in other models of projectors that I have already tested, then I will leave a link here.
An interesting feature is a price since the WZATCO C2 will cost you about $190 for a basic configuration. You can also pay a little more and order an additional Android TV box for watching movies, remote control, bracket, and much more.
For the test, I ordered myself a basic version, since it is no different from others, except for additional accessories. From a technical point of view, the projector received a native resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a contrast ratio of 8000: 1, high brightness of 6800 lumens, and a projection screen from 50 to 200 inches.
In this article, I will definitely tell you what I liked about the projector and what not. I will also share my impressions and is it worth buying inexpensive projectors?

The device comes in a rather large box, which is made of black. The front part has a sketch of the projector and the name of the LED projector. At the end of the box, you can find a table with technical specs.
Inside the box, I am met by a small black box in which is the power adapter and cable. The projector itself was protected from all sides by foam so that it came into your hands safe and sound.
In addition to the projector, in the box, I found a cable for audio, video and stereo, an HDMI cable, instructions, 3D cardboard glasses, and white remote control.
The package bundle is pretty standard and as for its price tag, the projector has everything you need for full use. Although I would not refuse a carrying bag.
The appearance of the WZATCO C2 projector looks typical of most inexpensive projectors in this price range.
The dimensions are not very small, but not large – 320 x 240 x 130 mm, and the device weighs about 3 kg. Of course, often wearing it for work or school will not be convenient, but just right for home use.
The whole body is made of durable white plastic. It is slightly corrugated to the touch and no fingerprints remain. Therefore, I have no complaints about the quality of materials, as well as the quality of the assembly.
There is a lens with a protective cap on the front of the projector, and the manufacturer also added an iridescent strip. It is worth noting that the focus wheel is on the frame of the lens itself.
On the left and right side, there are dual 10 W speakers, which sound pretty cool, like for a budget projector. The sound is really very loud and there is even a small bass, which is nice to watch.
On the right side of the case, there is a grill through which hot air comes out, and on the back of the hole through which cold air enters.
Also on the back of the WZATCO C2 are two USB 2.0 ports, two HDMI ports, a VGA port, an AV output, and a headphone jack. Below, there is a power button and a connector for the power cable.
Four rubber legs are installed on the bottom of the case, which provides good traction. To install the bracket, you must open these rubber feet and a bracket is installed in these holes.
At the top of the projector are physical control buttons – this is the menu, ok, move backward, move right, left, up and down.
The remote control itself is made of white plastic, as is the projector. Due to its white color, it will be easy to find in the dark and it blends well with the design of the projector itself. It has a small number of buttons.
Projector menu and Image quality
After the first inclusion, I am greeted by a rather bright and saturated picture. The WZATCO C2 projector uses a convenient and simple menu that is easy to operate. Here you can find sections such as films, music, photos, and text.
Everything is standard in the projector’s settings menu, as for most other projectors from China that I tested earlier. For example, you can adjust the colors of the transmitted image, set the aspect ratio, control the sound, language, and much more.
But I would like to dwell on some special features – this is 4D Keystone. This is a unique feature that is capable of digitally distorting the images of the projected screen. Each trapezoid face can be changed by 45%, which allows you to install the projector a little to the side of the screen itself.
As for the technical specs, let’s talk a little about them. As I mentioned, the projector uses the native resolution Full HD or 1080 x 1920 pixels. Also, the device quietly has support for playing 4K video.
The optimal projection screen size is about 110 inches. Although the maximum size can be achieved in 200 inches if you place the projector at a distance of 6.2 m from the wall or projection screen.
While watching videos or movies, the projector shows a truly amazing result, both in color and brightness. If you look at the pictures below, you can see that red, green, white, and other colors correspond to reality.
Now I want to show you a picture in which you can see that the edges of the corners are very clear and not blurred, as happens on most budget versions. You can also notice that this is indeed a Full HD projector, since very small details are visible, for example, female thin hair.
I will also leave some test pictures in which you can see that the color reproduction is really at a high level. Each color has its own shade, ranging from black to white.
If we talk about viewing angles, then this projector can be viewed from any angle. Images do not distort colors and watching movies will not spoil your eyesight.
As for brightness, as for an inexpensive projector, the brightness here is quite enough – it is 6700 lumens. In the daytime, watching movies or TV shows will not be so intense and some dark scenes will disappear, but you can easily watch your favorite movies even during the day.
It should be noted that the life of the LED lamp will be about 50,000 hours. This is about 10 years if you watch movies every day for 8 hours.
Conclusion and Reviews
Testing the WZATCO C2 budget projector left me very warm and positive emotions that I don’t want to say goodbye to.
In fact, after a review and tests, I decided to keep this model for constant use. It is rare to find a really high-quality device that will have good indicators of the quality of the transmitted image on the projection screen.
For example, I did not find any flaws here, this is an ideal projector that has only positive aspects. WZATCO C2 is equipped with high brightness, good clarity, and detail. I did not find any blur, and the colors are very rich and realistic.
