Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF – Why Is It Better Than Mi, Mijia 4K Projector, and WEMAX One Pro?
Design & Appearance
Xiaomi WEMAX L1668FCF appears to be totally different from the other projectors we see on the market. It’s not square-shaped, neither it’s a completely pointy rectangle. Instead, it’s a lightweight and slim built with curved corners. It occupies less space and is lighter than Wemax ONE Pro.
To be honest, in terms of ADLP 3.0 projectors, you witness the best built here with the most appealing appearance. The pure glossy black and gold color contrast are simply perfect and alluring. Moreover, for a softer approach, the edges are curved. More importantly, there’s the iconic gold metal power button at the front center and a gold metal plate with ‘4K Laser Home Cinema Projector’ embedded on it. I really appreciate the sub-woofer head design on the front with small dots visible.
With lots of vents on each side, the heat dissipation of the projector is much better than all other Chinese projectors including some previous entries from Xiaomi.
All of the ports are situated on the rear side which decreases the wiring mess around the projector. It has USB3.0, Headphone/Microphone Jack, Audio Input, Audio Output, SPDIF, 3x HDMI ports, and Ethernet port. There’s also keystone correction and an extra USB 3.0 port on the right side.

The angle proportion is 16:9 or 4:3.

You should note that light source is 2000 lumens more than Wemax One Pro and 4000 lumens more than Xiaomi Mi Laser projector.
Similar to the Mijia 4K projector, the native resolution is 4K or 3840 x 2160 pixels. Just to explain, this is multiple times more than Full HD 1080P! Indeed, even in sunshine, it anticipates a splendid and point by point picture that analyzes to LCD TV. With the 8-point Trapezoidal Correction, one can easily set the projector on any plane.
The color brightness is greatly improved, the proportion of red light is as high as 16.8%, the center contrast of the theater level is 4000:1, and the center brightness is 180 nits.

For a better display, it has a 0.47 inch DMD chip making it superior over other expensive ADLP 3.0 projectors. This decreases the heat dissipation and improves the life of the projecting source. Moreover, there’s the infrared laser sensor on the front which prevents you from directly looking at the light source. When you look at the light source, it automatically decreases the brightness for your eye’s safety. So it’s a friendly projector for the toddlers out there. Talking out the light source, it has a lifespan of an impressive 20000+ hrs. If you use it for 6 hours daily, it can last for up to 9 years.
