XGIMI MOGO 2 PRO test: the little more faithful video projector, but less autonomous

The ultra horizon always embeds a camera on the facade allowing the development and correction of automatic trapeze, as well as the avoidance of obstacles. A surprising and practical feature, even if we lose the native definition. This model stands out with a 1,2x optical zoom, which offers even more freedom in its placement, without forgetting a dynamic iris in order to improve contrast.

Writing note: 5 out of 5

The latest evolution of XGIMI Ultra HD 4K video projectors is called Horizon Ultra. Announced as the first Dolby Vision compatible long focal model, it promises more precise colors thanks to a double light source combining diodes and laser, while retaining the forces of previous devices.

Presentation

The Ultra Horizon projector has the same DLP Texas Instruments 0.47 inch DMD (DLP470te) as the horizon. This displays an ultra HD native definition of 3840 x 2160 pixels thanks to the wobulation. In addition to the appearance of a motorized hood which protects optics, novelty lies in the double light source, Xgimi combining LEDs with a laser. The association of these two technologies makes it possible to maintain a natural reproduction of colors, while increasing the brightness and the number of colors displayed. Xgimi thus promises faithful colors (finally !) and a brightness of 2300 lumens.

The lifespan is still announced for 25,000 hours, three to four times more than a classic UHP (ultra high pressure). This video projector also has an audio system made up of two speakers and a Harman Kardon radiator, with a total power of 24 W.

The ultra horizon always embeds a camera on the facade allowing the development and correction of automatic trapeze, as well as the avoidance of obstacles. A surprising and practical feature, even if we lose the native definition. This model stands out with a 1,2x optical zoom, which offers even more freedom in its placement, without forgetting a dynamic iris in order to improve contrast.

On the side of the operating system, we find Android TV 11 animated by a Quadricoire Mediatek MT55 Cortex-A9612 processor, a Mali-G52 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space. The video projector also has wifi and bluetooth.

The XGIMI Horizon ultra sold around 1900 €. He does not have a competitor equipped with a double light source, but we can cite the Dangbei Mars Pro 4K, a 4K Ultra HD model sold less than € 1,500. The Hisense PX1-Pro with its more powerful laser and an ultra-clever focal length, both more expensive and bright, is also a serious competitor. The Samsung The Premiere LSP9T and the Sony VPL-XW5000 reference, both marketed around € 5,000, cannot be considered direct opponents.

XGIMI MOGO 2 PRO test: the little more faithful video projector, but less autonomous

Writing note: 4 out of 5

Evolution of MOGO PRO and MOGO PRO+, the MOGO PRO 2 video projector is brighter, better calibrated and offers an automatic development and correction system of improved trapeze. In return, he loses his battery. So, always interesting, this Mogo ?

Presentation

The MOGO 2 Pro is a portable pico-projector under Android TV, which is no longer really autonomous, since it does not embark on battery. Fed by a USB-C port, it can still be used with a powerful external battery (65 W), but this remains less practical than the integrated battery of its predecessors.

The rest of the characteristics are very close to Mogo Pro and Mogo Pro+. There is a DLP Texas DLP230NP 0.23 inch DMD DLP chip, which displays a native QHD definition of 960 x 540 pixels, but uses Wobulation at 240 Hz to display a real Full HD image of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 Hz. On the screen or on the wall, we end up with a full HD native image. The brightness is brought to 400 lumens, against 300 for the MOGO PRO/PRO+.

The Pico-Projector Mogo 2 Pro inaugurates Isa 2 technology.0 (for intelligent screen adaptation). Already present on the big video projectors of the brand, it allows you to develop, correct the trapeze and even avoid obstacles (like certain models such as the horizon pro), all automatically Thanks to a Tof of Flight/flight time Camera and a TOF Sensor). This version 2.0 now uses a laser sensor to improve precision and, above all, the speed of image adjustment.

Big novelty, no need to display a sights to correct the trapeze or make the focus. Everything is done on the fly, directly on the video being read. Visually, it is very impressive, even if in fact it does not fundamentally change the product, because we rarely have fun changing position every 5 min.

The Xgimi Mogo Pro 2 uses Google’s Android TV system in its native version, without any modification, allowing it to access Google Play Store and streaming apps like MyCanal, OCS, Molotov TV, RMC Sports, MyTF1, etc. Without any particular manipulation. Only Netflix still refuses to settle down via the Google Play Store. According to Xgimi, this blockage is attributable to the SVOD service. The manufacturer does propose an application to get around the problem, but that of Netflix is ​​then satisfied with a 720p diffusion.

The video projector uses an AMLOGIC S905X3 processor with four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.9 GHz, a Mali G31 MP2, 2 GB GPU and 16 GB of storage storage.

The Xgimi Mogo Pro 2 is sold around € 600. Its main competitor is probably the MOGO PRO+ marketed 100 € less and, important detail, with a battery ensuring 2 hours of autonomy viewing, which is much more practical on a daily basis.
