A few days ago, Xiaomi’s Wemax brand released a laser projector TV called Xiaomi WEMAX ONE MJJGYY01FM in our full review.
It is the combination of the laser source and ultra-short-throw projection enables WEMAX ONE laser projector to obtain 12-150 inch images in a limited home environment.
I think a big part of the reason is that it is closer to the design of the Xiaomi WEMAX ONE, and its warm appearance has a home style.

Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Design and Appearance
The case itself does not make of white plastic, Xiaomi WEMAX ONE has dark plastic that looks very stylish and beautiful.
Everything else is done well and qualitatively, the weight of the projector is already 6 kilograms and the dimensions are 44.00 x 29.00 x 9.00 cm.
If we compare with the first generation, then we can see that the weight has significantly decreased. Yes, this is good, since the projector has become easier to carry, even for the teenager.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Hardware and Light source
If “Ultra Short Focus” is a trump card held by Xiaomi WEMAX ONE in the test, then “Laser Light Source” is another ace of it.
The Xiaomi WEMAX ONE adopts the ALPD 3.0 light source technology from Guangfeng Optoelectronics Co., Ltd.
ALPD Full Laser Phosphor Display/advanced laser phosphor display technology that uses GaN-based blue laser-excited fluorescent materials to produce one or more primary colors to display images (see more detailed technical principles).
Compared to traditional UHP sources and high-cost LED sources, ALPD sources have higher brightness, a wider color gamut, and a similar lifetime to LED sources.
They are more expensive than UHP sources but slightly lower than LED sources.
The Xiaomi WEMAX ONE with ALPD light source has a brightness of 7000 lumens.
The actual look and feel are much better than the so-called projectors I have experienced.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Features and Setting Up
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE in the analisis is an ultra-short focal length projector.
Since it is an ultra-short-throw projection, it can obtain an oversized image in an ultra-short-distance projection. So, it is difficult to achieve with ordinary telephoto projectors.
To measure the relationship between the projection distance and the size of the image, the concept of “projection ratio” can be used.
It can be simply understood as the ratio of “the distance between the projector and the projection surface” and the “diagonal size of the projection reflection surface”.
When the projection distance is constant, the smaller the value before the “projection ratio”, the larger the screen size obtained by the projection.
The projection ratio of the Xiaomi WEMAX ONE has 0.233:1. In other words, by placing it at a distance of 0.233 meters in front of the curtain, a projection of 1-meter diagonal distance can be obtained on the screen.
Mi’s officially recommended projection screen size ranges from 12 inches to 150 inches, which means that you can get the projection lens at a distance of 50 – 90 cm in front of the screen to get 1.1m – 1.4m high and 1.8m – 2.5m. The wide picture is already very large in the ordinary family living room.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Software
Similar to Xiaomi TV, Xiaomi WEMAX ONE in our analisis is also has an Internet TV route.
It is equipped with MIUI TV system interface based on Android 6.0. The content resources are exactly the same as Xiaomi TV: GITV is the main content supply, and it is combined with iQiyi.
The Thunder Star CDN offers freer and paid content. Internalization also determines to some extent that it does not need to have too many interfaces.
The MIUI TV system interface uses the tab + stock flow design, which is similar to the home page design of most online media.
Users can receive a lot of information during the process of flipping up and down, and the top tab design provides more.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Sample Video and Sound
Below you can see at Xiaomi WEMAX ONE MJJGYY01FM some sample quality videos and sound:
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Image Quality
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE in the review is more advanced, it is still a projector, and the experience gained is greatly affected by the environment.
There are two main factors affecting the projection effect. One is the ambient light interference that all projectors have, and the other is the effect of the flatness of the ultra-short-focus projector on the screen.
As mentioned above, the ALPD illuminating technology used by Xiaomi WEMAX ONE has a brightness of up to 7000 lumens.
The light projected onto the screen is not only a laser projector TV but also indoor lighting, outdoor sunlight reflection, etc., mixed with multiple lights.
The curtain spreads the projected light, and the details of the projected image are lost. The stronger the ambient light, the more detailed the loss of the projected image.
In the environment of Xiaomi WEMAX ONE where the lights are turned off indoors at night, about 80 inches of the screen is projected on the white painted walls, the brightness is higher.
The details of the picture are more abundant, the color performance is also good, and the contrast is high.
In the dimly lit room where there is no light in the daytime, it is also projected into the 80-inch picture in front of the white. The difference between the lighting effect of turning on and off is still quite large.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Connectors
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE has three HDMI on the left side (including a two-way HDMI ARC interface), a USB 3.0 interface, a 3.5mm standard audio interface, a 3.5mm AV output interface, a fiber-optic audio interface, and an Ethernet interface.
Lined up, there is a USB 2.0 interface on the right side of the fuselage. As a projector TV, although the total number of body interfaces is too large, and the expansion interface type is still complete.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Speakers
Xiaomi is equipped with two pairs of speaker units, a pair of high-frequency units and a pair of full-range units.
It is placed in the black net cover in front of the fuselage to support Dolby and DTS sound effects on Xiaomi WEMAX ONE.
Although the actual performance of this set of speakers is not top notch, it is definitely not bad, and the sound is not thin.
To sum up in one sentence is: watching cable TV live is enough, watching HD movies is still lacking.
So, the formation of the corresponding audio system is the choice to watch movies more enjoyable.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE: Heat
As a laser projector, Xiaomi WEMAX ONE has a weight of 6.0 kg, the internal light source, and other components are all hot, so the internal heat dissipation design is extremely important.
The cooling design of the Xiaomi WEMAX ONE is quite clever. Two fans are placed inside the right mesh cover of the main unit, which is used as the entrance of the outside cool air.
The left side is the heat dissipation air outlet of the internal heat. At the same time, there is a fan inside to further guide the flow.
The heat sink near the air outlet on the left side of the fuselage is connected to the heat pipe, and the cool air is further discharged from the heat sink by the heat of the three fans.
The heat dissipation design of the Xiaomi WEMAX ONE can really bring a good heat dissipation effect to the whole machine.
After using it for a period of time, the surface of the mainframe is basically not hot. The heat is mainly concentrated at the air outlet on the left side of the fuselage.
The maximum temperature of the left air outlet was measured at 52.8°C in the office at room temperature of 25°C, and the air inlet on the right side was measured at 26.7°C.
The built-in three-fan design of Xiaomi WEMAX ONE also brings a certain amount of noise, which is not easily overlooked in a quiet environment.
Sitting in the air-conditioned room in a closed air-conditioned room to watch a movie, the soundless scene can hear the rustling sound, and it will play in minutes.
Xiaomi WEMAX ONE MJJGYY01FM: Conclusions and Reviews
This is Xiaomi’s second projector, under the Wemax brand, Xiaomi WEMAX ONE gives a price of nearly $2000 in our review.
From the price point of view, this is not like the style of Xiaomi, but looking at the entire ultra-short-focus laser projector market, the “price-performance ratio” of Xiaomi WEMAX is reflected.
In this period of experience, you can feel better than its ordinary projector, after all, the price difference between the two is not small.
And to get the best results of Xiaomi WEMAX ONE, you need extra effort – the price of anti-interference curtains, or even the formation of better audio equipment.
Laser projector Xiaomi WEMAX ONE itself is not a very close home appliance, and Xiaomi has taken this step.
And it indicating that more laser-based and ultra-short-throw projection devices will be more popular on the market. Products will gradually enter our lives.
