We have been writing about Xiaomi's Ultra Short Throw projectors for over a year now. The company has been making some amazing products at an affordable price range. While 2000 bucks can't be considered affordable, compare some of its products with the likes of Sony or Epson and you are getting way more for your money.
You can now get all three of these projectors on discount. The most popular and recent version supporting native 4K resolution is available for $1,999 on the 4th of July flash sale (10 units), while its predecessor is up for grabs for just $1,649, which is quite a bargain when looking at its $2000+ original price tag.
The Xiaomi Ultra Short Projector remains our favorite home cinema projector, since it offers a brilliant array of features and a true cinematic experience. Xiaomi is known for offering the best value for money. The company's products are often accused of being a copy of high-end Silicon Valley firms, but looking at its success so far, it's safe to say the strategy has been working. With its sleek design and Apple-like aesthetics, the Mi Ultra Short Throw can add to any living room's design and aesthetics. The product works brilliantly among ambient light and almost dazzles the viewer if you close off all the shutters to get the true home cinema experience.

The Xiaomi Mi Ultra Short Throw Projector may sound exorbitantly priced, but the features and the specs list it offers can only be matched by a projector from trusted names like Epson that cost at least $5,000 a pop.
The Mi Laser Projector features the ALPD 3.0 laser light source technology developed by Appotronics that is behind the laser tech in 90% of movie theaters - this one literally brings cinema to your home. The projector also utilizes Xiaomi's own custom digital light processing (DLP) solution created by Texas Instruments.
This is the world's first ultra-short focal laser projector with ALPD technology that delivers up to 150-inch Full HD at a distance of 50 cm with a high contrast ratio of 1500 lumens, a 3000 : 1 contrast ratio and a product life of 20,000 hours. Using a compact "box" design, the product adds to your living room's aesthetics and also enables you to interact with your projector using voice assistants.
Cinema laser projectors may not be new, but Xiaomi is certainly helping consumers get the technology at a much more affordable price. With built-in speakers, wide color gamut, 150-inch large projection size, no wiring, and ALPD 3.0 laser light source technology, the Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector remains the best choice in its category. The product has also won the 2017 Japan Design Excellence Award, among several other awards.
