We will now be interested in a new DLP projector by proposing the test of a small compact projector, called XGIMI CC Aurora. First of all, this builder is not part of the “seraglio” of the brands we are currently testing and, before there was a lot of ink (from China).

It is therefore with some apprehensions and doubts about the performance of this import object, among many others directly from the Asian continent, that we have begun an overview of this home theater cube.

Kind of cube with rounded edges, it is composed on its front face, the lens with its mobile hatch which serves as protection and switch on/off. On the lower part are positioned 2 speakers, 4 small feet unscrewable. On the back side the connection consists of HDMI, a sound output optical, USB ports and others.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Packaging

The video projector is perfectly protected for transport. It is in a box filled with moss.

The box is surrounded by strong bubble wrap (as for printer toners) and placed in a carton.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Design and Appearance

The XGIMI CC Aurora projector in our analisis is really compact, not to say small compared to everything it embarks. It could find its place in a student room or rather a studio of young worker. In our case, it perfectly found its place in the living room next to the aquarium.

The first contact with the projector is a little rough. It was easy to connect, however the projector seems to search the sharpness alone.

In fact, you have to use the remote control to get to stabilize the sharpness. There is a small switch to operate on the remote control to activate the setting of the blur via the volume keys – / +.

Then follow the instructions. I recommend that you apply the updates without delay.

Having no screen, the projection was performed on an olive green wall. This distorts the renderings on the photos a bit.

Despite this, we immediately feel the image potential of this video projector. Very quickly, I notice a stripe on the optics.

This does not seem to affect the projected image. That said, I’m wondering about the build quality.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Projected image

The image is surprising, it is very clear and precise. The whites are white, the blacks could be a little deeper.

As part of my test of XGIMI CC Aurora, the projected image measures from 40 to 180 inches. The projector is 3.0 m from the wall. You can use the zoom to reduce the size of the image or adapt it to a screen.

We feel good full HD. You can set several modes 16: 9 and 4: 3 aspect ratio. The image draws a little on the red. While searching through the menus, we find something to adjust the blue / green / red.

I forgot to tell you, I placed the XGIMI CC Aurora projector in the test on the left of the screen and 70 cm from the ground. So I corrected the horizontal and vertical trapezes. We proceed corner by corner. In my case only 2 corners have been fixed.

DVDs, Blu-rays and 4K videos (retrieved from YouTube) go perfectly. They can be loaded directly on the video protector. The image is faithful. (Well almost, with my imperfect trapezoid correction). When one approaches the screen (at home of the wall), one still distinguishes the “pixels”, to 2 meters one does not see them any more.

Given the image size, the brightness is sufficient to leave the curtains open in overcast weather. We draw one when there is a lot of sun. We must approach the 300 – 350 lumens. On a white screen, the image must be much brighter.

When I first set up, I had a slight blur. It was very slightly visible on the headlines of continuous news channels. I reset the trapezoid correction. The blur has almost disappeared (it is more like a gradient of color).

3D works with several modes. Personally, only the Blu-ray mode interested me. So I bought for $23 the unit of active 3D glasses. It works perfectly.

We have the impression that we can catch things. Finally, 3D, has little interest. Maybe you have to choose the right movies? Finally, know that this option works perfectly.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Sound

We are promised JBL Golden Ear Laboratory sound. The sound is there. We are promised immersive sound. I will be clear.

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

Immersion depends a lot on the source, the position of the projector. The excerpt given by Xgimi did not seem very conclusive.

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

If you have a 7.1 system, use the optical output. That said, the sound is more than enough for a family projection or in love.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Games and applications

It lacks a TV tuner. Inside, we have Android 5.1.1. It’s a shame, because some applications will not pass. I think of Molotov TV.

Funny thing (or not), the application store is Aptoide. The Google Play Store is installed, but I have not found (not too much) how to access it.

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

Access to certain applications is rather difficult (especially the flat store). You can still sign in to your Google Account and go through a PC’s browser and play.google.com to install compatible apps (the problem is Android 5.1.1).

For the rest, it’s only happiness. It remains 9 GB of disk space, enough to install Replay applications that go well.

We regret that there is no possibility to add a memory card. We can of course connect one or two hard drives with all the videos, music of the world.

You can install games without too much trouble. You can also connect a controller, you just have to choose the games that manage them.

Having an Android box, I have not explored this kind of possibilities. I just installed Sonic (original SEGA) and it does it squarely.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Connectivity

Level connectivity wireless it is complete Wi-fi in 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz, Bluetooth 4.0. The remote control of XGIMI CC Aurora in the review is in Bluetooth.

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

So, I connected a keyboard, but weird it is recognized qwerty, it’s a bit difficult to change.

I also connected a mouse always in Bluetooth before I discovered that the remote control was used as a mouse (it must be shaken to make the hand cursor cursor), and a joystick.

I did not try the optical output, the amp is too far from the video projector. On the other hand, the Jack jack for headphones is great.

That said, do not forget that you have the headphones on your ears before getting up. In fact, the quality is strangely not at the top (for audiophiles).

We plugged in a Blu-ray player and an Android Box. Everything is going very well. I also plugged in an SD card adapter.

It is perfectly recognized, and we see the movies from the SD cards. Everyone is connected to the Box RED fiber (altice) in WIFI 5.0Ghz and it goes very fast.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Remote control

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

XGIMI CC Aurora in our analisis has very small and will be quickly lost in a slit of the sofa. Once you have discovered that it is also mouse through the gyro sensor, you will not be able to do without it.

It is a very practical remote control and well designed. Depending on how long you press a particular button, the menus displayed may be different. Inside, there is a gyroscope, we end up a bit with a Wi-Fi command.

XGIMI CC Aurora: Conclusions and Reviews

The XGIMI CC Aurora in our reviews is our new companion of the house. The TV is gone. You’ve already understood, it’s a good buy from my point of view.

Once this story of blur is set, the picture is more than correct. We enjoy an image of 180 inches on an olive green wall.

This global solution is really ideal for a living room, a country house, a studio for young worker.

The possibility of placing the Video projector where you want in the room is a real plus, it’s like going to the movies.

XGIMI CC Aurora Review: Impressive Compact DLP Projection 2018 low price and buy

Also, it really changes the movies, the 3D is really gadget and depends on the movies, the sound is good and largely covers the noise of the fan with variable speed.

You can play, go on the internet And of course the first function to watch movies in Full HD or 4K.

Since its small footprint, we can even imagine winning for presentations. Clearly, yes I recommend this purchase.
