There are quite a few things I like to do in my free time, but there are two main things I especially enjoy doing to take a break from the demands of the everyday. One, I watch Youtube and two, I read books. :)
Singaporean brand LUMOS, well known for their projectors, recently got in touch to ask me if I’d like to try their latest model: the small and compact LUMOS NANO. I’ve heard about home projectors for quite some time now (from vlogs on Youtube, of course) and I’ve also seen some posts online talking about the projectors by LUMOS, so I was very curious to try one out!
As I’ve always shared about how much I love going to the cinema to catch a movie, I thought it’ll be pretty great to project all the Youtube vlogs and baking videos I love watching so much to recreate a bigger screen at home. For the NANO, do feel free to use any available wall/screen/surface to act as your screen!
When I opened the package, the very first thing I liked is how small and portable it is! You can tell from my photo that it’s really about the size of my mug and very light, easy to bring around and placed anywhere you need it to be. After years of living in Hong Kong, I’ve developed a preference towards keeping smaller and less things to save space, so this is quite perfect for me!
The projector comes with an inbuilt touch pad on the top and also a remote control to navigate it as you’re using it. I’ve been trying out the NANO for about 3 weeks and in my first photo below, it was taken in the evening, with the lights turned on. It definitely works best with the lights turned off though, for the full experience! I’ve included some snapshots and also a video clip of some Youtube video watching (*Netflix & YouTube are inbuilt into the NANO’s system!).
I did enjoy the experience of watching videos with a much bigger “screen” beyond my laptop and the sound was also very loud and clear. LUMOS shared with me that the high audio quality is due to the NANO’s Dolby Audio speakers and that the projector can also be used as a portable speaker as well – sounds very useful!
While I was trying out the projector, I also discovered the inbuilt Chrome browser, which I was very excited about because I also read a lot of blogs online and decided to try loading some of them for a reading experience. Here are some snapshots which I took of my own blog to share:
For all the details on the tech specifications of the NANO, do check out their webpage here and also check out the great reviews from other users. As for pricing, the LUMOS NANO costs S$599 (comes with a 1 year local warranty). Please do note that LUMOS currently only delivers to Singapore and Malaysia.
I had a pretty great experience trying out my very first projector, so I hope this offered you an option to consider if you’re shopping for one!
