Read: 15 mins. Anker's Nebula Mars II Pro (720p) had been my favorite, portable, battery-operated projector to take camping even after comparing it with the highly-rated Xgimi Halo (1080p). Both companies make midrange 4K projectors targeted towards the home cinema or large office environment, and in this review, I evaluate Anker's Nebula Cosmos Max with comparisons against the Xgimi Horizon Pro.
Read: 13 mins. Finding good, portable projectors for small-group, outdoor movie nights has been a disappointing quest over the last, two years. From $60 to $300 devices, each had much to like but also left a lot still to be desired. There were the big ones that output excellent, bright images but were more geared towards the home or office with HDMI/VGA connectors, small ones that were very portable but lacked the brightness and sharpness, and more recently, minis that could operate off a battery but also sacrificed image quality, input options, and good sound. I eventually did find one that checked off almost every one of my requirements. This review will go over some projection basics that helped me decide what was right for our family.
