Review by Anant

Got the projector with a ViewSonic BCP 120 CLR screen. The benefit of the ultra short throw is that the screen can reject all light except the projector from the bottom. The Xiaomi provides a great image and with the CLR screen, I am able to view with all lights on as well as sunlight streaming in from the basement windows. I would not be able to do this with any of the ceiling mounted projectors. The Xiaomi image is crisp and clear with good contrast and brightness for the 120" screen. The best part is that there is no need to install the projector on the ceiling or have wiring running from the projector to the audio system. Also, there is no issue with shadows if someone is standing between the projector and the screen. The google TV interface is great and while I do have a chromecast, the projector itself has a great selection of software that can be installed from the google app store. This could be used completely standalone with the excellent speakers built in as well. This is an amazing piece of equipment which gives me more utility than any other projector due to the ability to use it with ambient light. And for the price it is available at, it can't be beat. The laser light means that there is no issue with bulbs blowing out and the associated costs.

Any Problems: The only issue I encountered was getting a table that would conceal the projector. I ended up getting a custom desk made with a cutout on the top for the projector light. With this setup the projector is virtually invisible and the screen looks like a big TV.

No complex installation. Great price for an ultra short throw laser. Excellent image quality. When paired with a UST screen, it is excellent even in brightly lit conditions.

Any Problems: Have the Chinese version, so needed some mods to make it usable in English. International version is Google interface or if the box
