Deal: 6% Discount on WEMAX Go Advanced Portable Laser Projector, available for just $849.99

With a weight of 1.71 pounds, the Wemax Go Advance is a light toy. It’s a pretty big wall charger, with 65 watts and a height of about 2 inches. This thing is small, light, and easy to carry. Its lens can be protected by a sliding on/off switch, and it can be used almost anywhere. The heavy lifting is done by ALPD (fluorescent laser technology), which puts out 600 ANSI lumens. It doesn’t compete with the light outside, so this is definitely an indoor or nighttime outdoor projector.

At night, it looks great on my test wall, and of course, the better and brighter the image, the closer it is to the destination. The Go Advanced has a native resolution of 1080p, which is more than enough for most business presentations and casual movie watching. Wemax, like a lot of projector makers, advertises “4K support,” but that just means it can work with 4K sources; it doesn’t upscale or anything like that. Wemax also says that the projector has 600 ANSI lumens, which is a measure of how bright it is.

In comparison, the Xgimi Elfin mentioned above puts out 800 ANSI lumens. In the real world, this means that for the Go to give you the best possible picture, it needs a low-light setting, but not total darkness. You might be able to get away with turning off the lights and closing the blinds in a conference room. When you turn on the projector, you find out that it is powered by FengOS, even though it looks great and is very small. FengOS is a version of Android that doesn’t use Google services.

It’s made for projectors, and it’s safe to say that it’s mostly for the Chinese market. Android fans will have stronger feelings about whether this is a good or bad thing than I do. In practice, this means that many apps that use Google Play Services or similar features won’t work at all or will crash at some point. For example, Netflix only works with the mouse version. This is usually fine if you’re using a remote control app or a Bluetooth mouse, but it’s not exactly a smooth, couch-friendly way to enjoy entertainment.

How to get WEMAX Go Advanced Portable Laser Projector?

There is a safety feature that turns down the light when someone walks in front of it. The idea is that this will keep little eyes from staring directly at a laser. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great safety feature, but I can set it off too easily. You can turn it off, but you can’t set a threshold for when it goes off. The button also brings up a screen that says the light has been turned down. You have to find the remote to get out of it; there is no timer that tells you when normal light will return. My kids keep “accidentally” walking in front of the thing, of course.
