Introduction

XGIMI Logo

XGIMI is a bit of an upstart to the projector world, so much so that the company's first projector is barely 7 years old. Since then, it has diversified the product lineup to offer a variety of portable offerings and recently launched its first 4K projector as part of a next-gen lineup. Before we get there, it only seemed prudent to set up a base using currently available products. As such, knowing that projectors are not necessarily our forte yet, we sought to do it differently when the company approached us by having two reviewers with differing backgrounds and opinions cover a projector each. The first came in the form of the MoGo Pro+, where the main issue seemed to be the low maximum luminance. Today, we take a look at the XGIMI Halo, and thanks again to the company for sending review samples to TechPowerUp!


The XGIMI Halo builds upon the MoGo/MoGo Pro/MoGo Pro+ projectors in taking things up a notch throughout. It is the current portable flagship from the brand, at least until the newer Horizon and Horizon Pro come out, and aims to address the maximum brightness issue that my colleague had with the MoGo Pro+. This is a DLP projector maxing out at 1080p as well, but with bigger speakers, a bigger battery, and of course a much brighter lamp. So let's see how the XGIMI Halo fares as we begin with a look at the specifications in the table below.
