Two days before I got the chance to do some hands-on or spend time with a portable projector of the well-known Coolux brand. I have checked its features and tried to uncover the good and bad things regarding the same. Hence, in this post, I will be discussing regarding my recent Coolux X6S review. So kindly tuned in with me and read this post completely to discover more about the portable projector!
The device that I have reviewed is available in all Robin Egg Blue color. I think it is the only color in which the manufacturers are offering the X6S projector. By the way, you can buy the projector at a price of $480 or even up to $380 from an online store if you will be lucky to get a nice discount. However, the shipping and handling fees will be paid extra.
X6S is based on an ultra-thin design made of metal. Projector has been built by selected space aluminum alloy material, proceeding ahead to 108 CNC finish milling. Next, the hardware has been polished, anodized and carved using laser technology. Finally, we get a portable projector machine.
How is the Outer Design of X6S Projector?
At the top surface of the mobile projector unit, nothing is there except a brand impression right at the center of the hardware. To the bottom, there are four rubber pads located on each corner of the X6S projector. They give proper support and balance to the device while keeping it on a flat and smooth surface. Also at the bottom near to the center, the product designers have provided with a small hole. It is useful to fix the projector hardware either with a stand, tripod or a ceiling mount.
At the front surface of the projector, there is a lens located at the left in rectangular design stretched till the edge on the upper part. Also on the right side, three tilted lines are holes. On both the left and right surfaces of the Coolux X6S projector hardware there lies some air vents to pass on internal residual heat of the system.
At the back surface of X6S to the ultimate right, there is a small power button. Now moving towards the left, there are some hardware interface connectivity ports. It includes a DC input port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, two USB ports, and an HDMI port. Further on the ultimate left side on the back of the projector machine, there are some small air vents as well.
How is the Outer Packaging of the Projector?
I like the outer packaging box provided by the Coolux for the X6S. It is a complete white box with multi-color graphics of X6 imprinted at the top of the projector Box. On sides of the projection machine box, you will get some details regarding the projector. Otherwise, a brand impression of Coolux has been present right at the center of the sides. A user can choose anyone from the EU, the UK, and US plug option that is available in the package for the projector.
As a package, a user will get the power adapter with a power cable, a 32GB TF card and a remote controller with the main Coolux X6S projector unit. If we talk about the remote controller, then it is available in all white color with grey impressions on buttons. On the top of the projector, you will find two buttons, one is to power on with a red sign, and another is to access the internal contents of the system.
Below these two buttons there present a circular directional button for all four directions. There is a circular OK button at the center. Below it there are some more useful projector control buttons. It includes but not limited to a back button, and a volume control button. The remote controller of X6S projector need two AAA batteries for it to run correctly and from a certain distance within its range. And yes the batteries are not as a part of the company packaging.
What are Factors that impressed me Concerning the Projector?
The outer packaging box of X6S has been designed to have a compact and light in weight body that can be measured as 1.4 kg. Also it sizes to about 9.25 inches x 6.89 inches x 2.83 inches or 23.50 cm x 17.50 cm x 7.20 cm. The dimensions have been considered as per the length, width, and height of the Coolux X6S projector respectively.
A metal cone has been used with a set of full glass lens to show high-quality pictures on the output screen. Thus, the lens setup of X6S has ultimately removed the need of a virtual focus function on the device and pursue optical high-definition.
X6S supports electric focusing with optical high definition full glass lens. It can help a user to avoid any waste of time after every boot up of the projector to set up the display screen as per requirement. The projector can produce very less noise that is measured in between 22-28Db. It is a great thing to know about the machine since I hardly found any projection device that works silently.

Here I would like to summarize some important points about the X6S projector machine that I liked and disliked! First of all the device can support to display 4K content as well. It is easy to share the display of a mobile screen on a projected display of X6S. The projector is able of showing a screen of size equal to that of a room wall all because of wireless display mirror feature in the X6S.
I found smooth transition while watching Full HD pictures and also while playing high graphics games. So overall the projector can deliver an excellent display performance. Yes, the projector is a good machine for the novice or casual Gaming enthusiasts.
X6S also has an active shutter 3D imaging technology. A user will be going to amaze from the three-dimensional effects. It is because the projector can generate the 3D results with sufficient effective technical levels.
