What are the Design Aspects of JMGO X3 Projector?

Let us start with the design factors of the X3 portable multimedia projector. Thus, the overall design of the projector is much similar to many of the older JMGO projector models. However, you can identify X3 among all if placed together with them. Because JMGO X3 has got a different touch on the design of top and sides of the body.

The physical appearance of the X3 hardware in simple terms is something that has a dual tone black and silver colored body with a square design. Let me start sharing the details of the overall hardware design of the X3 starting from the Top surface of the device.

There is only one power button located at the center and nothing else as we had seen in many predecessors of X3. Also this time a leather touch has been given on the top surface of the X3 projector other than glossy aluminum finish.

I liked the curved edges provided in all sides both at the top and bottom surfaces of the projector. It not only gives a premium look to the device but also make it safer for a user while handling the machine.

How similar is the Hardware Design of JMGO X3 with its Predecessors?

At the front side of X3, to the upper portion on the same surface, the JMGO X3 projector has a toughened glass. Behind it, there lies a big lens located to the part at the center of the projector hardware. Also, we can see above the glass something is written on both the upper front left and right corners of the device.

On right corner, an HDR and on left Home Theater has been imprinted. Now the lower area at the front face of the projector is made of same body material nothing is there other than a big brand impression at the lower center.

Both the sides of the X3 are slightly curved, and there are the minute set of holes at the lower portions. If you have seen any JMGO projector before, then you can identify for what these holes are provided. Yes, you might guess right, it is to dissipate high-quality surround sound coming from the internal audio system of the X3.

What are the impressive Facts Concerning the Projector Hardware?

I am impressed with the fact that the side coverings are entirely detachable from the main projector body. You can take out the three different layers of attachment for cleaning purposes or so. This type of design adds to the convenience on the part of projector user.

At the back side of the X3 projector, there are big air vents provided for the internal cooling system of the device. As per my experience, it works excellently to control the internal heat of the projector. It is must to have active management of air cooling system inside a highly configured projector. It can help theJMGO X3 machine to avoid any damage to the internal hardware of the same.

At the upper portion on the same surface of X3, there present some interface connectivity ports in a row. It includes an RJ45 port, two HDMI ports, a SPDIF port, and a power supply connector. So, ultimately you have sufficient options to connect the X3 with external devices, or speakers whenever required. That too with the help of only a single wire to establish a strong connection.

You can take the full benefit of watching movies on a bigger screen considerably 100 inches in length at night hours. Also on dark surroundings or at daytime with curtains closed the display work excellent. It can be compared to a cinema hall experience with far better color reproduction as compared to other high-end projector models.

I like the fact that whenever the X3 projector has been powered on it only takes some seconds to adjust the display automatically. The device no more needs any human intervention to change the display focus.

I can say this because X3 comprises of HDR10 instant Auto Focus with HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma). The best thing to know about the projector is the 4K projection resolution support with HEVC H.265 decoding technology. Also, there is 3-speed adjustable motion compensation technology to avoid smears in the videos. It works well to play games or while watching a sports game onJMGO X3 projector.

The device features 1500 ANSI lumens of display brightness. It is much high other than other flagship projectors available in the market of other well-renowned brands.

You can find a separate tiny camera that has been providing to the right side of the X3 projector. It helps the device to adjust the autofocus functionality for the output display.

To ensure more convenience of use X3 features 45-degree trapezoidal correction. I checked about the same for both horizontal and vertical directions to get upright pictures on the projection screen or a wall. There is also a provision of custom projection correction.

What are the Basic Specifications there in JMGO X3 Projection Machine?

In this section, I am going to list down some of the hardware specifications of X3. They are essential to make a projector machine powerful. After knowing them it can help you to decide on whether you should buy the projector device or not as per your requirements;

At least I can take the risk of using the projector for a long time without much thinking about any hardware issues due to overheating. A user can set the front and inverted projection methods of the X3 projection device.

X3 can deliver high-quality sound output from the inbuilt 5W dual horns. They support high-temperature resistance. It is because of the High compliant composite diaphragm that the JMGO X3projector can restore original sound. And like many other portable multimedia projectors available in the market X3 can be connected with smart gadgets. It can work as a standalone Bluetooth device.

Good news for the professionals or business people is the fact that X3 comes with inbuilt office software. Hence, it will be a more than fun to watch slides while giving the presentations both as a presenter and as an audience. And everything is possible with connect and play feature.

I like the screen mirroring support of X3. It is an excellent feature to enhance a small smartphone screen to a more prominent display output screen. That too with the enjoyment of high resolution and brightness. You can dream it as gameplay in a cinema hall.

What will an Owner get in a Package?

If you are interested to be the owner of X3 projector, then you can order it online at a price of 5999 yuan. At that price, the company box packaging of the X3 projector comes with many useful accessories. It includes but not limited to a power cord, a power adapter, instruction manual, warranty card with the mainJMGO X3 unit.

I would like to specially mention about an accessory provided on the company packaging of the projector. It is the dual seven cell batteries for running the remote controller that comes with the X3. The complete design of the remote controller is beautiful and can fit comfortably in hands.

It has the pure black appearance and can be identified with a big circular hollowed out navigational button design. There are limited buttons available on the remote, but they are bigger and separated from each other. So, a user will not feel any discomfort or so while using the same.


X3 can be a potential option for a complete high-quality projector at home. An economical way to watch bigger display screen of size more than 70 inches in diagonal size. It is generally not affordable for many people to spend the high price on the big television screens. So it is too far to consider the screens that support 4K resolution display technology. By the way, we should not forget the fact that X3 can produce good stereo sound effects.

So, the sound performance of the X3 projector is much better than most of the premium projectors available in the market of the same budget range.
