The Elite Projector offers multiple MosicGO systems, which are a portable home theater system designed for outdoor and indoor entertainment. We reviewed the MGFU-S with a MosicGO Sport that comes with everything you need for a backyard or poolside movie night or even an end-of-season camping trip.
For just $1,299, you get the projector, an adjustable tripod, 58” projector screen, and stand – not to mention carrying cases for all of it. The MGFU-S is one of the first projection systems introduced by Elite Projectors, which is a division of Elites Screens. These projector systems are now available with a variety of portable screen sizes.
All Elite MosicGO systems include an ultra-short throw Full HD (1,080 x 1920) DLP projector. The Osram RGB LED light source has a rated lifespan of up to 25,000 hours. If you used this projector for 3 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take about 22 years before you reached the light engine rated life.
The Elite MosicGO is an ultra-short-throw projector with 1,000 lumens and can project an image of up to 120″ diagonally. The projector may actually appear even brighter than its ANSI lumen rating because we perceive lumens coming from LED (and laser) projectors as being brighter than lamp-based projectors.
The projector has full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080), providing you with a sharp, clean image for all your entertainment needs, whether movies, TV shows or video games.
Elite offers the MosicGO projector in two variations: The MosicGO Sport and the MosicGO Lite. The MosicGO Sport has a built-in battery while the MosicGO Lite does not. The MosicGO Sport systems cost $300 more than the Lite series, but the integrated 37,200mAh Power Bank is worth it for the enhanced portability. Since it has an internal battery, you can set up this projector virtually anywhere that has solid ground.
The battery should last up to 3 hours when projecting video and up to 30 hours when using the projector to play music. You can get one good movie in, or hours of video games, before needing to charge the projector. The battery can also be used to charge a laptop or cellphone via the projector’s USB-C / USB-A port.
The MosicGO systems were originally focused on portable applications. Many customers also wanted to utilize the projector with a larger, permanently mounted screen. So, while we were in the process of reviewing the MosicGO Sport (MGFU-S), Elite Projectors launched a new system series called the MosicGO 360. These systems come with an Elite Yard Master 58” CineWhite screen and stand for portable use, as well as a fixed screen that can be permanently mounted in your home or office. They are also available in either the Sport (with battery) or Lite projector variations.
By combining the MosicGO Sport and MosicGO Lite with a variety of portable and fixed screens, Elite has 24 different system options to choose from. Since I have a couple of Elite Screens which are the right size and equipped with the right screen materials, I could also evaluate the performance of a couple of the new MosicGo Sport 360 combinations as well.
Though there are many outdoor projectors on the market, projectors and screens are rarely under the same business umbrella. That you can get a good projector and a good screen or screens under the same price tag makes this projection system unique, which is why we award the MosicGO systems a Special Interest Award.
