A day before yesterday I got a call from my colleague. He asked me to come to him and review a Wired Sync Display Multiscreen Home Theater projection machine available with him. I want to take the best use of this opportunity and do some hands-on with something that I had never seen before. It is AAO YG600 portable smart multimedia projector.
My colleague and I have spent almost four to five hours while using the device. We had tested the machine on different perspectives of uncovering the overall performance of the product. Further, I will share you everything about the product.
I will start from unboxing to the features and applications of the device for a regular user. Thus, this post will be going to be dedicated to my feedback regarding the YG600 multimedia small projection machine.
A Short Look on the Overall Box Packaging of the Device
The product comes in a nicely designed black box with a front image of the product at the front surface of the same. A significant term ‘LED projector’ has been written above it. Also, we will get different details about the specifications of AAO YG600 written on different surfaces of the Box.
As a whole package, the company is supplying a Power cord, a Remote Control, an HDMI cable, and an AV cable with the main projection unit. You need to pay around $190 to buy the complete package as per an online shopping website.
The overall dimensions of the outer box package of the AAO YG600 are 12.6 inches x 9.84 inches x 5.12 inches, or 32.00 cm x 25.00 cm x 13.00 cm. By the way, the measurements are considered as per the length, width, and height of the product respectively. The net weight of the Box including all the accessories in it with the projector is between three to three and a half kilograms.

How much Comfortable is to use the Remote Controller of the Device?

By the way, all the buttons on the remote controller are black with white text or indications printed on them except a red colored power button. The remote needs two AAA batteries to work properly with the machine. However, the cells are not included in the packing box of the YG600.
How is the Complete Design of the Projector Hardware?
The exterior look and feel of the machine are beautiful. The designers have given a premium natural black finish to the complete body. Also, the entire outer hardware has been made of ABS material. Hence, everything is available in a lightweight device.
By looking at the projector from the front surface, there is a big rounded lens located at the left corner. The rest portion is filled up with small holes that work both as ventilation and adds to the overall design of the YG600 hardware.
The top surface of the device has got nice curvy finish with tilted left and right edges. Also just above the lens, there is a separate section that has been provided with a glossy finish. In this small area, all the user interface projector control buttons are available.
It includes two manual adjustable knobs one for keystone correction and another for focus. I like the fact that both these knobs have been enclosed in a separate hollow chamber on the exterior hardware of AAO YG600.
So there are rare chances that any child or a user can disturb the adjustments of knobs either intentionally or unintentionally. Next, behind these knobs, there are some touch control buttons, it includes navigational buttons, a power, a menu, a source, and more.
What are the Hardware Control Options Available for a User?
I am impressed with the particular provision of a glossy section on these control panel. As a help of which a user can access them with ease even in darker environments.

It includes a VGA port, two HDMI ports, two USB ports, an AV port, an audio port, and a Micro SD card slot. At the below portion towards the left on the same surface there lies a power input port. However, on the right part, there are some air vents in the form of vertical parallel lines of holes.

An LED lamp has been used inside the device that can devour an output power of about 105 watts. It helps the machine to save power due to the presence of an LED light source that can generate bright pictures in the output. That too by reducing the rate of the overall energy consumption regarding the whole AAO YG600 smart handy projector device. After all, the lamp can be used for more than thirty thousand working hours.
As per the manufacturers the device consists of a plated film lens that has a high absorbent capacity to light. It can be calculated as a user do not need to think about the maintenance of the internal light bulb present on the product.

The manufacturers have stated in configurations that the YG600 machine needs a regular power supply of 100-240 volts at 50-60 Hz. By the way, the projector consumes 135 watts of total power.

How to Listen a Quality Sound from the AAO YG600 Projector?
There is an inbuilt stereo audio system on the device that can produce some nice sound output. It is possible because of the availability of two 3 watt speaker units in the hardware. The company is claiming to provide accurate median, wide high pitch, and great low pitch Hi-Fi sound output. But I am not satisfied with it. If you have read my earlier reviews, then you know me well that I am an audiophile.
So if I will purchase this product for my use, then I would definitely go with some external amplified speakers. One can connect the device with a good quality audio system while watching any audio-visual multimedia content on YG600.
Also, I have gone through some genuine online user reviews of the projector on different well-known e-commerce sites. I got to know that most of them were also not happy with the sound output performance of the device. However, they are so glad to have a 3.5 mm audio jack on the hardware.
It can help them to connect any external audio system with the AAO YG600 to generate loud yet high-quality sound output. It has been found that the device can create an output noise of 36dB. As per my experience, while using the machine nearly for about a day, I have to say yes it is not the much noisy product.
I have noticed the fact that the hardware generates a small humming noise in case of an average volume of sound output from the projector. But at higher volume levels I am sure just like me any other user can hardly get any irritating noise from the YG600 projection device.
How can the Machine Display Lifelike Pictures on the Output Screen?
At maximum, the output brightness of the projector is around 2500 lumens. Therefore, the display screen of YG600 is intense enough to display crisp and clear pictures in the day time as well.

A user can not enjoy either watching 4K resolution multimedia content or to play ultra-high resolution games on the projector. However, we need to agree with the fact that YG600 is a budget-oriented multimedia projection machine. Hence, one cannot expect much from the configurations of the same.
Also to adjust the focus of the projected pictures either on a wall or a projection screen a user needs to improve the hardware manually. It is possible by changing the position of the machine back and forth concerning the output display object.
