Energon 2

#Energon 2

Excellent projector

After doing a ton of research and deciding against spending over $1k on a name brand projector I settled on the Artlii Energon II. It was among the most expensive non-brand name projectors but offered bluetooth, wifi and digital zoom (which means you can place the projector further back and zoom in). It doesnt have zoom out but dont need that for my purposes. Ive used it half a dozen times over two weeks and so far so good. Its super bright despite my background being my wood fence and super loud. I never have it over 60% of the volume strength. The remote works well and i installed a firestick to watch youtube live. My photos are of the clippers game. The iphone mirroring works perfect but youtube live doesnt allow it so I installed the firestick. Mirroring works great for regular youtube videos and your phone’s photographs and videos.It also has keystone correction which is needed if you put your projector at an angle. It corrects the picture to be flat again otherwise the top of the picture will be clear and the bottom out of focus.I am definitely happy and highly recommend this projector.

Great for the price

In my view, home theater projectors have all the same bells and whistles as their TV counterparts, with one crucial difference: with a projector, I can simply watch my favorite movies and shows on a 100-inch or larger screen.  For a cinematic movie experience at home, the best 4K projectors bring everything but popcorn out of the packed theaters and into the living room. Home theater projectors have undergone significant improvements in the latest years. At present, they can handle a plethora of multimedia content, such as photos, films, games, documents, to name a few. They are capable of playing the music files as well. The majority of these models possess a resolution of about 4k, whereas few come with a higher resolution.We can enjoy the movie theater's feel from the comfort zone of our home as we opt for these products. Few of the home projectors are portable enough, owing to which people can move them from one room to another without any hassles. There are several advantages of purchasing the home theatre projectors over other products.In my opinion, this home theater projector is a dream for the targeted audience as it provides 1920 X 1080 resolution, 10000:1 contrast ratio, and 300 ANSI brightness. I can see each and everything evenly on the screen of 300 inches. Thus, this unit renders a unique cinematic viewing experience to me.It is equipped with the most updated WiFi connection, and so we do not require carrying the hassle of ordering a bunch of adapters. This projector is capable of projecting from different Android and iOS devices on a full scale. This unit offers Bluetooth and WiFi connection, and hence we will be capable of connecting to other Bluetooth speakers and headphones.It has different ready-made stereo speakers that are handy in conferring loud sound quality without the need to connect to the external speaker. With a screen size of about 300 inches, it delivers an outstanding cinematic level experience. Hence, if you plan to create the home theater of your choice, you should opt for this projector without giving it a second thought.This item features the Mstar chipset and improved LCD technology, which generates true-to-life color. The credit for the immersive and vivid images goes to the contrast ratio of 10000:1. Also, this product is a suitable choice for teaching and demonstrating the projects.#Features* Brightness: 300 ANSI* Resolution: 1920 X 1080* Projector screen size from 44″ to 300″* Contrast Ratio: 10000:1* Keystone Correction: ±15° Manual Vertical* WiFi and Bluetooth connection* Built-in stereo speakers* iOS and Android compatible* Supports up to 100000 hours lamp lifePROS:* Compact.* Great image quality.* Quiet.CONS:* not perfect in a day light

Great projector and Great Value

Very easy to use, basically a plug and play. Has the keystone for adjusting your screen, as well as zoom. Definitely worth getting.This projector works perfectly for my window, I do window scenes for Christmas and Halloween.This projector is exactly what I need to make it look like I have Santa's workshop at my house. I can't wait to use it on Halloween!

Totally worth the cost!

This projector was to replace another one that we had. This one is substantially better than the other one. Not only can you airplay from your phone or laptop without the use of connecting a Apple TV or adapter. The picture is awesome and there isn’t any kind of lag from launch to projection. I can’t be happier with this projector and it’s totally worth the price! Cheaper than a huge television and get the image of one! Great buy!

Great projector

I bought a mini projector which was great for what it did, but even in the dark the picture quality was too dark… I decided to spend a little more and get this one and I am glad I did… the picture quality is so much better, it is bright in the day time and night time. I love it!

Great Buy!

After looking around the internet for a good and affordable projector, I found this one and I'm very happy I did. :) The picture quality is everyone you could want. The sound is also super clear and definitely loud enough to fill the room. And the fan does a great job at keeping the unit cool for those longer movie sessions. Overall great projector for a great prize. And customer service was very helpful which was much appreciated!

Well built projector with many connections

The emergeron 2 is a solid 1080P LED projector with all types of connections available. It feels very sturdy and well built and comes with a carry case. The remote works well as well as all the connections. I use primarily HDMI, fire stick as well as screen mirroring with my Apple phone. I had it up and running showing HomeMovies within five minutes of opening the box. Picture is bright and sharp. I am really looking forward to showing football games outside on it this Fall. A few years ago a projector this good would have cost $1000 now it’s very reasonably priced.

High Clarity easy to install projector with great
connection options for lag free video streaming

Artlii Energon 2 is High Clarity easy to install and configure native 1920*1080 resolution Projector with great connections options for lag free video streaming.Easily connect your phone, laptop HDMI /VGA /USB /SD Card as source to your projector and every thing works like a charm. The Projector supports display 44" - 250 " but the imageis very bright and clear on a 100 " screen. The button design is very easy to operate the projector. Attached amazon firestick 4k to this projector and its a good combination forstreaming movies and videos online. Streaming from and Android and iPhone are very nice features the instructions are very clear to connect the mobile to the phone,very good Contrast ratio: 10000:1.The main highlight of the projector is very low cost and high end features its just $279 but the features are almost competitive to a $1000 to $2000 Projectors in the market.

Great for indoor or outdoors

We use this with a Roku attached to project on a 20 ft inflatable screen in our back herd and it works like a champ.I[hone interface for mirroring worked but something with Hulu and Disney plus stopped the video transmission. With Roku it was spectacular.

BEST Projector Out There for the Price!!!

After hours of research, I kept coming back to the Artlii. I couldn’t be more happier with my purchase. I LOVE IT!! It took less than 5 minutes to get up and running. The quality is great for the price and the speaker is actually pretty good-highest range is 100 & trust me it’s LOUD! I use my fire stick to watch everything. Screen mirroring works well for streaming YouTube and things like that. Setting up WiFi and Bluetooth comes with ease. If you’re looking for a projector that will give you the best cinematic experience for a decent price, then the Energon 2 is the one! But buy it quick because they sell out like hot cakes!

Worth it!

Great quality for price! We are using it for outdoor movies/football games/Wii. Easy to set up. Easy to use. Speaker quality was well enough that we didn’t need an extra one.

Great product for what we paid for it!

Pros:- Brightness and picture quality! We set it up in our backyard to project onto a 120-inch projector screen (16:9) and the pictures are crisp and clear.- Sound quality and level is good enough, it’s built in and I believe this has Bluetooth connectivity so it should connect fairly easily to a sound bar if you wanted to enhance the sound.- Ease of setup/assembly. After some initial troubleshooting and figuring out the controls, this has been so easy to use. The initial issues were only because we’d never used a projector before, and so had to figure out what the dials/buttons/controls all did.Cons:- only one is one that I was prepared for because another reviewer mentioned it. This isn’t a smart device and so it doesn’t come preloaded with any of the viewing apps. An easy quick fix solution is a Roku/Fire Stick/Apple TV.Everyone that’s spent time with us and used the projector setup has loved it. I can’t speak to the longevity of it yet but here’s hoping it meets expectations as well as the initial quality did.

Awesome projector!!

I did a lot of research to find a projector and a screen that are good quality and affordable. This Artlli projector fits my needs. It's light, with high lumens (as you can see on the pictures the quality of the images is very good whether my blinds are open or close). The set-up was super easy (about 5 minutes) and the projector comes with a remote control and a nice bag. Also, it is equipped with HDMI, VGA, USD ports and cables as well for the first two. I use my laptop a lot so I hooked it up right away to check with Netflix, PowerPoint, etc. The volume is high and there is no need to use additional speakers. I haven't tried with my phone yet but I will! So far so good.

Wow! Worth it.

The brand Artlii has a good reputation so far. I have purchased one of the projectors in the past to run it in the backyard. It is still good to this date. No issues still working.I bought this little more advanced version of the Projector for my media room, it cost around $200, a little expensive but worth it. It looks premium. I have set this up in my bedroom / media room.Picture clarity is way sharper and the adjustment was quick. I definitely noticed the brightness and colors are amazing. See my attached pictures and a short video of the Projector.Audio was not bad when I tested. Initially it was at 50%, should be better at 100% but I don't care about the Audio, I have a proper home theatre setup which takes care of the Audio.All I was interested in was the video/clarity/brightness/colors which is 200% better than my previous model. I believe this will last longer.

Exceeded expectations

I had to get the 1st exchanged due to shadows and scratches on the lens. But, the replacement is amazing! I should've gotten one years ago! Now let's see how long it lasts. Works great with my Firestick and my Xbone.

Nice projector!

This is a pretty good projector and very inexpensive. I was amazed with the image quality by far. I read a lot of good reviews and negative reviews and by far the negative reviews do not way up to what they claim.The projector is pretty good for a reasonable price so I am very happy if this projector and I would recommend it to others.

Seems perfect for the price point.

Exactly what we were looking for. I didn’t want to spend too much on a projector. I just wanted something to use outside for movie nights and ‘living room theatre’ movies and I’m not very technically savvy. I purchased a fire stick with this to access Netflix, Disney+, Amazon etc. It was easy to set up and picture quality and brightness are great. The picture I posted was at 1pm or so and picture was easily bright enough. Looking forward to summer with this.

Best picture and sound projector for under $300!!!

I love this projector!! The picture quality is amazing, we can see details that we could not with our previous projector. Such great quality you can see the actors pores!! Also, the sound is wonderful too! It goes up to 100 and we never need it past 45. That's for action adventure movies, 45. Most everything else we play at 30. It did take my Amazon firestick like it was made for it. I didn't have to go through the initial setup of the firestick, it just knew my account and started playing all my faves! Highly recommend the heck out of this projector!! (It also comes with a soft case. Very nice/convenient).

Owned a Energon 1, this is worth getting the 2nd
version

Been a long standing customer of artlii products for business and personal use. Always happy with their products on quality, durability and size/weight. Owned the Energon 1 and like the native 1080p aspect of the Energon 2. Works well at night and on a bright wall/screen in reasonable light.Use for indoor and outdoor use with no problems.I like the carrying case in this version.

Bright and crisp

I've had this about two weeks now and it's really nice. It's bright, even with the lights on (you can see in the photos of a fully lit room). With the lights off, the picture looks even crisper. The sound quality is much better than my old projector - clean and not at all muffled. Setup was simple. The buttons on the projector are nice and the remote works well. I probably won't use the carrying case, but it appears to be good quality so if you are using this for portability, you will likely enjoy that.Overall, this seems like a solid projector at a comparatively low price. I've had several projectors over the past decade and this is definitely the best I've tried.

Great Projector!

I had been shopping for quite some time to select a projector for family movie nights. The endless sea of options is almost head spinning. I actually initially purchased a different product, and sent that one back completely unhappy. I stumbled across the Artlii Energon 2 in my continued search.... what a gem. I was immediately blown away by the difference in quality compared to what I previously purchased.The carry case is great, and comes with an HDMI cord, AV adaptor, Power adaptor, and remote. The projector is sleek and attractive, and is loaded with features. The native 1080p makes for a fantastic picture, and the Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity are a huge advantage over other models. The menu is easy and intuitive, and set up is a breeze. I had our first movie night up and running within 5 minutes... including Bluetooth speaker pairing! You will not be disappointed with this purchase

BUY THIS ONE!!!

This projector is wonderful! The price was low so I was nervous buying it but the picture quality is outstanding!!! My hubby spent hours and hours researching different brands and unless you spend $1000+ you won’t find the brands you are used to seeing. We set this one up outside and I didn’t expect to even be able to see a picture in the daylight but as you can see from the photo, it’s a great picture. At night time it’s absolutely perfect!!

Quality, Useful On A Wide Variety Of Platforms, Value

I got this to use as a slide projector type device more than video but it has taken everything I have thrown at it from my android device with no problems. The pictures have been clear, the controls simple (love the remote) but a bit of lag in response to remote commands but nothing really bothersome for me. The ability to use almost any type of display device from a high end monitor, projection screen to a plain wall makes this an easy 5 Star item for me. One of the things I always look for is to see how things are packaged, if they are giving you cheap packaging the rest of what you get might also be cheap but this comes with a premium bag to protect the projector from normal bumps along the way so again still 5 Stars.

Great Buy!

Wonderful projector! We've been wanting one for a while now and we are really impressed, especially with this being our first and getting it at such a reasonable price. Both the picture and sound quality are great (we haven't even had to pull out our surround sound speakers yet)! We always feel like we're entering a theater whenever we walk in on something playing. The set up was pretty simple/self explanatory too. Comes with a remote and even a nice sized sturdy carrying case too. I'd say this was a great buy!

Excellent 1080p image!

I enjoy the ease of use. It is straightforward and user friendly. All adjustments are easy!

Great Value Projector for the Price

I got this projector to replace the Artlii YG600 that I had for about 2 years. I've had the new Energon 2 now for about a month. So far, it's been worth the upgrade.Pros: * The picture is much sharper, the colors are brighter and the darks are darker than my original projector, so overall picture quality is great. * Manual focus is solid and precise. * Device is pretty easy to set up, if you are computer literate. * A ton of cool features. I like the ability to play videos from my iphone/ipad directly through the player. On the old projector, I had to play videos through an app on my Firestick. This is much simpler. * Digital zoom makes it easier to get your picture to fill the screen. * Comes with a very nice carrying case, in case you plan to use it on the road (though it's a bit heavy).Cons: * The throw distance is a little bit shorter for this projector than my old one. I had a 125" screen on my wall that was filled edge to edge with my old projector. From the same distance, the picture on this was about 15% smaller. I had to adjust my hanger by moving it back about a foot to fill the screen. * Speaking of hangers, the mounting screw holes for this were smaller than on my previous projector. I had to go to Home Depot to find screws which fit. It would be nice if a set of screws were included. The exact screws weren't easy to find (M8's, I believe). * While the device was easy to set up, if you're not familiar with projectors/computers, the instruction manual is pretty thin. Your parents might have to call in help to get it sorted so they can use all of the features.Overall, a really nice projector. Would definitely recommend it.

Amazing quality for the price

Picture quality is awesome- especially when you dim the lights. Sound quality is surprisingly good from onboard speakers. The kids love playing video games and movies on it.

#Play 3

Good 4K supported budget smart projector

Artlii is good budget smart projector. Android tv is plus if you are android user. It provides ease to use.
Brightness in daylight is not up to mark but it looks great in dark.

Wow! Awesome! Great product and amazing
customer service!!!

Finally, after checking/testing couple of projectors, I am glad that I ordered “Smart Projector 5G WiFi Bluetooth, Artlii Play3 Outdoor Movie Projector 4K Supported, Android TV 10, Google Voice Assistant, Full HD Native 1080P Projector with Built-in Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video – by ARTlii” projector. It is a little costly compared to other competitive projector, but I don't have to bother about getting a fire stick, Roku, Google chrome or anything to attach to it to access any application. It’s simply plug and play. It came with many pre-installed apps which I am mostly using. So just enter your credential and start watching the shows.This supports the most recent 5G WiFi which is faster than the old 2.4G WiFi, and watching movies is more enjoyable without any delay. The picture quality is amazing and with the right video input, quality feels like watching in true HD. Apart from the video quality, sound quality and Android OS makes this a true TV replacement option.The projector’s top panel looks very slick... all touch buttons. They covered all the functionality of the projector and were well responsive. I have another projector with 480p native, after comparing the picture quality, this is an awesome, great upgrade.Overall, this is a great projector, I loved it and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Best projector for its price!

This is the best projector I have ever owned so far! It came with great packaging, and with everything you are going to need for a theater experience, including a charger, an HDMI cable, an AV cable, and a remote controller. The setup at the beginning is very simple, and with a lot of languages to choose from. The height and the angle of the projector can be easily adjusted to fit the wall that I project it on. As soon as I connect it with my laptop through the HDMI cable, everything's all set! The image is bright enough even for the daytime, but it is even much better at night. Above all the picture quality is very good both with color brightness and contrast from blacks and whites, built in speakers are decent enough to enjoy without an external sound system or even headphones. The multitude of connection options and compatibility with other devices is nice. It feels like I am in a home theater. There are many other different settings and apps that could make my watching experience convenient and comfortable. I could just plug in a flash drive or connect directly to Youtube to watch videos if I don't want to plug in the cable. The only thing that I am not very enjoy is the cooling fan, which is a little bit noisy than I expected. But it won't affect my watching experience.Great projector that an expansive TV!

Great Projector with all the smart features your
heart desires

Wow! Truly amazing. Having used several different projectors, the Artlii Smart Projector Play 3 is in a league of its own. This projector has a sleek design, quality manufacturing, and picture clarity that is only limited by the surface being projected on. The setup was very quick and easy. Within minutes I was streaming video and screen casting from my phone. The devise prompts for an android device, but I use apple products. There were no problems getting my iPhone to screen cast. The family was watching home videos and pictures on our wall in amazing quality and size. The picture I took of our photos being projected do not do justice to the quality that this projector actually does. The sound quality when playing movies was better than expected. There are plenty of connection options to hook up a more advance speaker system for movies. I really liked the manual zoom dial as it was easy to adjust the picture quality. The touch buttons had a sensitivity that took a moment to get used to, but once I got the touch, it was evident that this interface was as simple as using a touch screen. The bottom line, this is a top quality projector in every capacity. It is worth every penny. Be ready to ooh and ahh at the videos and pictures you project.

Outdoor capability is really good!!!

This works incredible as an inside smart “tv” projector, and also functions good for outside. I choose to use this more for outside. The WiFi connection is strong as this is on the side of my house and usually low reception area. However, no lag at all with this. Very surprising! Also, you can hook up external speakers and they include the cable. You may need different end attachments depending on what amp your plugging into. The internal speaker will not work well for outside, but will work ok for inside. All the apps can be run from the projector, but I also plugged in my FireStick and ran the movies from that. It worked flawlessly that way too. Just keep in mind to begin you outdoor movie night at dusk. You won’t be able to navigate your setups till dusk. Really like this projector as it punches weigh beyond its price point.Trust you found this review honest and helpful:-)

That's what I need..

I personally checked this projector and screen and honestly I am loving this. I had a projector before from same company but I have to attach additional Firestick and Aux cable to attach speakers but this has a built-in Bluetooth connectivity for speakers which makes my work less to setup and Projector volume by itself is enough if you're playing in a room bit for outdoor you definitely need additional speakers for sound. projector is Android based so it's very easy to watch your favorite apps like Amazon prime videos, Netflix or YouTube directly without installing any additional app. plus you can install apps from playstore. Projector video quality is brighter than my old one and crystal clear result

That's what I need..

So I had bought another projector from a competitive box store and the problem with that lower quality projector is it didn’t shoot as far. I was looking for a projector that I could occasionally mount on the top of my pergola outdoors. Then I would set my big screen up in the backyard and have a movie night outside. This has no problem this projector was probably more than 25 feet away and the screen once adjusting was completely clear and high definition. The other important thing to me was if this had some type of screw mount on the bottom. I did not have one center hole like a traditional tripod mount. But if you see in one of my photos if you look under the rubber pads or the “feet” of the projector it has small threaded holes. I feel like these are a 7M thread type? Once I find out I will share but my plan is to build a mount and use these holes to secure. Overall really happy and I can’t wait for my outdoor summer movie nights!I hope this was helpful!

Awesome image quality and sound.

The menu of the android system is very fluid and fast when loading, it behaves faster than any smart TV, but with the difference that the screen is up to 300 ". The image quality is impressive, it delivers sharp and vivid colors. It has different image configurations, to better adjust to what you are playing, for example to watch series or movies, the most recommended would be "movie" mode and even has a "gaming" mode.The audio quality is impressive, it has very good bass and a sound that looks like a cinema, without the need to connect some type of external speaker.To play video games it is excellent, the image refresh rate is great, I tested the nintendo switch and ps4 and the quality is impressive, I never imagined having a screen of that size.

Finally, A Good Quality Smart Projector with the
Streaming Apps BUILT IN

Lets get down to what makes this projector great. Although I am iPhone user, this projector has Android TV built-in and I’m totally ok with that because you can simply add all the popular streaming apps that your heart desires. That includes Disney+ (works fine as of June 2022), Netflix, Prime Video, HBO, YouTube, etc. Its crystal clear HD 1080p on a 100” projection screen. It's capable of being mounted on the ceiling by removing the rubber pads on each corner. For best picture, the room should be dark. I use blackout cellular shades in my room. The sound is loud enough for the little kids to enjoy during movie night, but if this is used for the “home theater” experience I suggest using the audio out (3.5mm stereo jack) or Bluetooth. Last but not least, the keystone correction is AWESOME and easy to use. You can use the remote and adjust each corner into the correct position for that perfect 16:9 aspect ratio.

Great and convenient projector

This is a phenomenal projector. The brightness is good enough to where I can use it during the day without much problem. The quality at night is phenomenal and the remote is made well and easy to use. I love the touch buttons and having 2 HDMI ports is quite convenient and its is extraordinarily easy to switch between the 2 and all other inputs. The built in android TV is quite useful and is very easy to use. Since I already have some of my streaming services linked to my email account they were logged in the second I logged in to my email leaving less hassle for me. The keystone correction is also amazing as it allows you to correct each corner individually to your own personal preference. Lastly, it is so nice that the remote inputs are detected from no matter where you are sitting (in front or behind the projector). Overall this is a great projector and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Great picture quality

One of the beat online purchase I ever had, it works perfect like a smart TV, I connect my laptop and do coding with it!
