The small black projector of Xiaomi TYY01ZM in our analisis weighs about 3.4kg and comes in very handy 215 x 116 x 218.7mm dimensions.

In addition, the fan volume is given by Xiaomi 30dB, unfortunately we could not measure ourselves. The power consumption of the projector is max 130 watts, in idle it consumes low 0.5 watts.

An interesting feature is also the following: The projector has a protective function, which avoids dazzling the eyes through the device.

This works by means of a built-in motion detector and a darkening of the light when moving in front of the projection screen.

The whole front edge is occupied by a glossy plastic and lens, and on the sides are located the built-in speakers.

And there are only four of them: two high-frequency and two low-frequency ones. The upper face is completely empty, except for the deepening for the laser itself.

On the right side there is a grid that closes the air intake hole into the cooling system of the projector.

All the ports of Xiaomi home projector for connection are output on the back side, among them: HDMI 2.0 output, a USB 3.0 port, 3.5 mm audio output, and SPDIF port.

Thanks to this variety of ports, almost anything can be connected to the device. And it’s good that all the ports are assembled in one place, and not scattered around the hull.

In general, the design of the device can be described as neat. Regarding wireless connections, Xiaomi TYY01ZM Projector is equipped with WiFi (2.4 + 5 GHz) and Bluetooth 4.1.

If you are unfamiliar, you probably assume that the projector works with a kind of “laser beam function”. This is not so.

In fact, laser projectors also use conventional projection technologies such as DLP or LCD. New, however, is the lamp technology, which is also used in the Xiaomi TYY01ZM in the test.

Instead of a lamp, a so-called laser module is used, which in turn is equipped with a large number of laser diodes, which generate the light beam necessary for the projection.

Probably the biggest advantage of this technology is the significantly increased service life! A conventional model with “lamp” offers a lifespan of about 5,000 hours, while the laser projector comes to about 30,000 hours!

In addition, heat emissions are lower, which means there are virtually no warm-up or cool-down phases on the Xiaomi TYY01ZM, and the volume is also lower (because less cooling is required).

Thus providing excellent connectivity options with the smartphone or other devices. Video and picture material can be easily streamed to the Xiaomi TYY01ZM – which we really liked.

It all sounds really fantastic, but there is no clue – the software interface is only available in some parts in Chinese.

Overall, the small Xiaomi TYY01ZM projector has two speakers! Two of them are full-range speakers and the other two tweeters.
