AAXA P6X Pico Projector Review – Hardware: Chassis and Connectors
The P6x is designed to be compact, and easily portable. Dimensions are: 6.26”x 6.2” x 1.85” and It weighs 1.81 lbs. When facing the unit, the projector’s lens is located on the left side of the front panel. To the right of the lens, there is a Micro SD/TF Card slot. On the right panel (when facing the lens), there are 2 vent openings for the dual fans. The left panel contains the on/off switch, manual focus wheel, and input panel. The back of the unit has an opening for the speaker, and a battery charging indicator. The control panel is located on the top.
The P6X’s control panel is located on the top of the projector. It contains 3 LED lights (convenient for dark environments), a directional pad and “OK button”, input selection, On/Off button, and an exit/back button.
Most of the connectors for the P6X are located on the left panel of the unit, except for the Micro SD/TF card slot, which is located on the front panel to the right of the lens. On the left panel, there is a 3.5mm audio out jack, 1 HDMI input, 1 USB port/charging port, composite AV input, manual focus wheel, and D/C power input.
The P6X has a manual focus lens with a throw ratio of 1.20:1. Image size is adjusted by moving the unit either closer to or farther from the projection surface.
Throw Distance for a 16:9 Screen
The remote control for the P6X is about 4 x1 ½ inches. It is about two thirds the width of a credit card and about a quarter inch thick. It has all of the relevant buttons you would expect to find on a projector remote. The buttons are easy to push, which sometimes isn’t the case for remotes of this type. It does have to be pointed at the back of the projector, which can be frustrating depending on your set up, but with a direct line of sight to the projector I never had a response issue with the remote.
When powered on, the P6X home screen gives 3 different options to access externally loaded content, “Settings”, “Brightness”, and “Input Source”. If there is no TF card or USB drive inserted in the projector the “Movie”, “Music” and “Photo” options don’t do anything when selected. When selected, they allow the user to access the folders however they’re arranged, in their external storage device. There is no option to customize the home screen.
The settings sub menu gives the options of: Sound, Option, Picture, and Text”. “Sound” lets the user adjust the sound mode, balance, auto volume, and surround sound. Under “Option” the language can be toggled and the factory settings can be reset. The available picture adjustments are: Picture Mode, Brightness, Color Temperature, Aspect Ratio, Screen, slideshow time, Projection orientation, and Software Update. The “Brightness” and “Input Source” options do exactly what you would expect them to do.
