NexiGo PJ90 ultra-short throw projector Review

The NexiGo brand has only been on the market for a few years and has yet to establish a reputation. Just in case, NexiGo is not affiliated in any way with NexGo (or Shenzhen Xinguodu Technology Co., Ltd.) headquartered in Shenzhen (China), which is a global manufacturer of high-tech payment terminals, PIN pads, etc.

Introduction

The start of the young American company was very successful. Located in Portland, Oregon between Silicon Valley to the South and Seattle, Washington to the North, company actively cooperates with experienced technicians and parts suppliers in the area. Its products are sold under the names NexiGo or NexiPC.

NexiGo started out as an online retailer selling laptops, desktops, and other electronics. Subsequently, the company expanded its activities by upgrading systems to order. Today NexiPC is an online computer reseller specializing in upgrade and custom laptops and desktops Acer, Dell, Lenovo, etc.

In the course of further development, NexiGo began to expand the production of its own OEM products. This direction has also been successful. In the spring of 2020, the company introduced the N60 webcam, which is still on many bestseller lists due to its great value for money. The NexiGo N930AF webcam has also become a major success for the company. Today NexiGo offers almost 20 webcam models, continuing to develop this direction.

Projectors have become an equally successful business line for the company. For several years, the company has already developed several quite competitive models:

– NexiGo PJ01 WVGA (854 x 480) – $ 300;

– -“- PJ06 HD (1,280 x 720) – $ 100;

– NexiGo PJ10 Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) – $ 180;

– -“- Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) – $ 250.

In fact, PJ01 / PJ06 belong to the segment of low-power budget WiFi mini projectors. NexiGo PJ 10 / 20 provide brightness of 220 / 350 ANSI Lumens with LED light source at Full HD resolution and can be positioned as good mid-budget models.

Moreover, the company clearly gives much attention to creative design.

NexiGo PJ90 Aurora

This year the company has shown strong intentions to further increase rates. Announced $ 2,600 NexiGo PJ90 Aurora 4K (3,840 x 2,160) UST laser Home Theater projector belongs to the premium level. Moreover, it falls into UST model segment. For several years they popularity has been growing rapidly as an alternative to TVs.

– LG CineBeam HU715Q and HU915QE;

– JMGO U2;

– announced ViewSonic X2000-4K and ViewSonic X2 1080p.

Unfortunately, the projector only offers Bluetooth 4.2 instead of Bluetooth 5.0, which:

– faster (2 Mbps vs 1 Mbps);

– long range (street/indoor – 200/40 m vs 50/10 m);

– more reliable connection.

However, this aspect is not important for projectors.

Smart functionality also includes almost all modern options. The projector uses advanced Android 9.0 with pre-installed streaming apps and 32GB internal storage.

Hisense PX1 and PX1 Pro ‘laser TV’ – $ 2,500 and $ 3,150;

These factors provide it with excellent value for money. As a result, NexiGo PJ90 has excellent marketing prospects.
