The NOMVDIC P1000 is the company's first dedicated 4K gaming projector with excellent picture quality.

The NOMVDIC P1000 is a short-throw, RGB triple-LED, 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160p) gaming projector that retails for $1699. It features a Texas Instruments 0.65" DLP DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) and boasts a manufacturer-rated brightness of 2,300 ANSI lumens. Its RGB LED light source allows for the display of vibrant colors, covering up to 125% of the Rec.709 color gamut.

The P1000 aims to provide an immersive 4K UHD gaming and home entertainment experience. The P1000 delivers super-low-latency gaming, with speeds as low as 4.2 ms at 1080p 240 Hz. The NOMVDIC P1000 fully supports HDR formats, including HDR10 and HLG.

 It features a Harmon Kardon Dolby and DTS sound system that, based on initial impressions, performs on par with many mainstream RGB LED projectors we've reviewed.

The P1000 is NOMVDIC's only 4K gaming projector and the second 4K model I've reviewed from the company. Based on its design, features, and price, the P1000 fits neatly into the Lifestyle projector category. Its specifications place it among the top Lifestyle and Gaming projectors released this year, alongside established brands like Hisense and BenQ.

Let's take a closer look at the NOMVDIC P1000 and see if its performance matches its impressive specifications.

Immerse yourself in an amazing gaming experience either in your home or on the go.

The NOMVDIC P1000 boasts impressive specs that cater to the serious big-screen gamer. It’s also an entertainment projector great for movie nights, TV shows, and even catching the big game. A Texas Instruments 0.65-inch DLP DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) offers a significant advantage over the more common 0.47-inch DMDs. The 0.65-inch DMD used on the P1000 has a high mirror count totaling 2716 x 1528 mirrors. With more micromirrors, the projector can achieve a better fill factor, the percentage of the chip area occupied by the mirrors. A higher fill factor reduces the area where light leakage can occur, leading to deeper blacks and higher contrast, translating to a richer and more immersive viewing experience.

This projector uses the same high-end DMD model found in some of the most popular gaming projectors I’ve reviewed on Projector Reviews – including those from brands like Viewsonic and BenQ.

Unleash your gaming experience with 4.2 ms unbeatable low input lag under 1080p, 240hz

The P1000 is a transportable projector designed for serious gamers who play at home or on the go at LAN parties. This projector supports all the available resolutions and refresh rates on next-gen gaming consoles and PCs. The P1000 supports 1080p at 60 and 120 Hz and 4K at 60 Hz. It even provides lightning-fast 4.2 ms response time at 1080p 240 Hz, allowing button presses or joystick moves to translate to the screen with almost no delay. This ultra-low input lag can give gamers a crucial edge over opponents. The P1000 also natively supports Xbox Series S/X 1440p 120 Hz gaming, and according to NOMVDIC, PlayStation 5 players can look forward to similar functionality via a future firmware update.

The P1000 features a powerful RGB LED light source. This light source can reproduce a stunning 125% of the Rec.709 color gamut, ensuring vibrant and lifelike colors that pop off the screen. This LED light engine can produce a manufacturer-rated 2,300 ANSI lumens of brightness, making it perfect for dark and moderately lit environments. Unlike traditional projector bulbs, the LED light source offers a staggering 30,000-hour lifespan, translating to years of worry-free entertainment without needing replacements.

NOMVDIC_P1000_ScreenSize#1 - Projector Reviews Images
Project images anywhere from 60 to 180 inches diagonally on a 16:9 screen.

NOMVDIC lists the P1000 as having a maximum screen size of 180 inches diagonally. While its 2,300 ANSI lumens are brighter than many comparable projectors, achieving that size ideally requires a light-controlled space. For colorful or casual gaming, 180 inches should work fine. However, as I exceeded 120 inches, I found the loss of brightness and shadow detail noticeable with darker games or movies.

The P1000’s short-throw design makes it an excellent space-saving alternative to standard projectors, especially for those with limited room. Short-throw projectors sit closer to the screen, minimizing the risk of people walking between the screen and the projector, which can disrupt the image.

NOMVDIC_P1000_Sound#1 - Projector Reviews Images

Onboard sound quality is a crucial aspect of any gaming projector. Like its P2000 model, NOMVDIC partnered with Harman Kardon to develop the P1000’s 6-watt x2 Dolby Digital audio system, and the results are impressive. The sound quality surpasses most flat-panel TVs, some soundbars, and, most importantly, most similarly priced competitors gaming and lifestyle projectors. The P1000’s Harmon Kardon sound system provides a rich gaming and cinematic sound experience. Let me be clear: the P1000 delivers surprisingly loud, room-filling audio with a wide soundstage.

NOMVDIC_P1000_Aiimage#1 - Projector Reviews Images

Automatic image adjustment on video projectors is a growing trend in the industry. I understand this feature’s appeal for marketing and as an easy-to-setup tool for consumers, so I’m not surprised that NOMVDIC has included its variation on the P1000.

NOMVDIC calls its system Aiimage Optimization. When activated, Aiimage Optimization will automatically perform four corner image adjustments to avoid obstacles in the projected path of the image, automatic horizontal and vertical keystone adjustment, and TOF (Time of Flight) autofocus. This is an incredibly convenient feature, but remember that using these types of quick digital adjustments, except for autofocus, can reduce picture quality. At Projector Reviews, we recommend doing your best to manually size and square the projected image before resorting to digital adjustments.

The NOMVDIC P1000 is an incredibly full-featured, high-performance gaming projector that could easily double as a compelling home entertainment projector. Let’s examine the P1000’s hardware and performance.

The NOMVDIC P1000 shares the familiar cube shape and size with many gaming and lifestyle projectors. However, like the P2000, NOMVDIC has made subtle design choices to differentiate its product. I applaud them for striving to stand out visually in a crowded market. Their design balances distinction with a familiar form. The P1000's primarily white plastic chassis, black accents, and transparent base create a unique "floating" effect from a distance.

Since the P1000 is designed for portability, NOMVDIC has cleverly included a pop-up carrying handle that completely recesses the projector’s top.

The NOMVDIC P1000 shares design similarities with other LED gaming and lifestyle projectors I've reviewed, but it boasts noticeable distinctions. It measures 8.27" x 6.95" x 8.12" (210 x 177 x 206 mm) and weighs 6.8 lbs (3.2 kg). This makes it both distinctive and easily portable.

The projector features integrated Harmon Kardon speakers housed in slightly bulging sections on both sides. Each side also includes necessary ventilation, while all inputs are discreetly located on the right side (when viewed from the front). The P1000 offers tabletop and ceiling mounting options for convenient setup, including a standard ¼ tripod mount. Additionally, top-mounted controls provide easy access.

NOMVDIC_P1000_PJBProdShot#5 - Projector Reviews Images

The NOMVDIC P1000 has one HDMI 2.0 connector, which is not enough; there should be two. Also, the projector surprisingly does not support ARC (Audio Return Channel).

In addition to the single HDMI connection, NOMVDIC has included a USB Type C connection, a single USB Type-A 5V/1A connector, and a power connector for the included small-sized 160-watt projector power brick.

NOMVDIC_P1000_PJBProdShot#_Ctrls - Projector Reviews Images

The P1000 does not have a control panel that allows the user to control the projector's menu-driven features. NOMVDIC has put several projector control buttons on the top of the projector for Power on/Off, Volume Up/Down, and a Play/Pause button only for playing content from USB using the projector's internal media player. These controls do not control external devices connected via HDMI.

NOMVDIC_P1000_PJBProdShot_Remote - Projector Reviews Images

The P1000 remote control resembles those you find with modern short-throw RGB LED TV projectors. Except for some color highlights around the D-ring, NOMVDIC did not drastically change the remote control design. The remote is lightweight and backlit, with enough light to see it even when there is some uncontrolled ambient light from lamps in the room. The remote backlight stays illuminated for five seconds before it shuts off.


NOMVDIC_P1000_MfrProdShot_Lens#1 - Projector Reviews Images

The NOMVDIC P1000 features a motorized lens with 1.2x F=2.60 – 2.8. This allows you to project images between a manufacturer-rated 60 to 180 inches. However, as with any 2300 ANSI lumen projector, you'll likely experience some brightness and color saturation loss when approaching the maximum size.

The P1000 uses a native 16:9 aspect ratio but also supports 16:10 and 2.35:1 for content flexibility. Its focus uniformity is outstanding. The projected image remains sharp except for the extreme edges. This is among the best focus performance in a short-throw projector.

NOMVDIC has successfully minimized color fringing, also known as chromatic aberration, a visual distortion where you see colored outlines (often red, green, or blue) around objects on the projected image. RGB projectors use three separate light sources: red, green, and blue. It's challenging to perfectly align all three colors. Lower-quality lenses and optical systems can worsen fringing effects. Fringing can be reduced by using high-quality optics and image processing techniques. The P1000 lens delivers a consistently sharp image throughout with minimal chromatic abboration.

The NOMVDIC P1000 uses two sets of menus, which I'll refer to as the Master and External Device menus. The underlying operating system used on the NOMVDIC is Android OS, and despite its minimalist design, I like how this menu system looks and operates.

The Home menu fills up the entire screen so everything is visible. The grouping of features is very logical. The first section is your inputs, listed from the top to the bottom. Next is the file management system, which is organized like you expect Android OS to be organized. Next is the App Center menu. The next tab is the Settings menu, where Network, Basic, and Advanced settings are located. There is a tab section dedicated to Screen Mirroring and one for Bluetooth. The final section is where you add apps via side loading.

Users can adjust Brightness, Contrast, and Color settings in the menus. This menu is also where the projector CMS (Color Management System) is located. The CMS provides full-color control, including adjusting red, green, and blue gain, red, green, and blue offset, tint, saturation, sharpness, and gamma.

I like the logical way NOMVDIC organizes its menu system.

NOMVDIC provides multiple ways to fine-tune the image, from basic adjustments to a full-featured CMS. Additionally, they've included wall-color compensation, though I always recommend using a proper projection screen for optimal results. The P1000 features 12 preset picture modes (six SDR and six HDR). The MOVIE and TV modes offered the most out-of-the-box accuracy.

NOMVDIC lists the P1000 as being able to reproduce 125% of the Rec.709 color gamut. I'll get into more specifics in the measurements part of the color section, but I want to start with my initial observations regarding this projector's color performance.

Out of the box, the P1000 produces remarkably vivid and accurate colors, exceeding my expectations because of the use of its LED-driven light source rather than lasers. Its RGB LED light source delivers a vibrant picture with rich blacks and saturated colors, especially evident in nature scenes where subtle variations in blues and greens are stunning. While the default settings have a slight green and blue bias, the P1000 consistently renders natural skin tones across various content (see screenshots from Passengers and Bill Maher's Real Time). This impressive brightness further enhances the color displayed.

As with most Home Entertainment projectors, we measured the color accuracy of the P1000 before and after adjustment using Portrait Displays Calman color calibration software.

Since your room and screen material significantly impact the overall picture, we don't recommend using someone else's calibration adjustments. If your room is brighter/darker or your walls are a different color, your settings would probably be different. Also, the color characteristics of different individual projectors can vary. Therefore, copying someone else's results can be detrimental to the picture quality rather than improving it. The charts below show my measurements before and after calibration.

If you want to make quick adjustments to  BRIGHTNESS, CONTRAST, and SHARPNESS to improve the picture quality of your projector in your room, several free test patterns are available on the Murideo website and their YouTube channel. Murideo also has written instructions in the resource section of its website. Also, check out our YouTube video on utilizing several test patterns called Optimize The Image of a Projector or TV Using Free Murideo Test Patterns

Pre-Calibration Color Tracking and Grayscale

Nomvdic-P1000-SDR-Calibration-Pre-Results - Projector Reviews Images

We chose to measure and adjust the Movie mode since it was the most accurate out of the box. Before calibration the projector’s Grayscale reproduction was above average compared to other gaming projectors in its price point.  

Our Grayscale measurements indicated that the image contained an excessive amount of Blue, resulting in an average color temperature of 6041K, which was higher than our target of 6500K. The result was an image that a little cooler than desired.

The projector’s Gamma measured about 2.0, which was higher than our target of 2.2. While this is fine for viewing the content in rooms with more ambient light, black levels look slightly evaluated in a dark space.

When measured, the projector’s pre-calibrated color tracking was average. The P1000 includes very responsive CMS adjustments, which I utilized to achieve outstanding results.

  • Picture Mode: MOVIE
  • Gamma: 2.02
  • Color Temperature: 7394K
  • Average Grayscale dE: 4.2
  • Average Color Tracking dE: 3.4

Post-Calibration Color Tracking and Grayscale

Nomvdic-P1000-SDR-Calibration-Post-Results - Projector Reviews Images

While we calibrated the MOVIE picture mode, the USER picture mode would also be a good calibration starting point if the mode’s Color Temperature setting is switched to 6500K.

To achieve deeper-looking blacks and a Gamma measurement closer to 2.2, I switched the projector’s Gamma setting from 2.2 to 2.35 and reduced the Brightness setting.

When the MOVIE mode was selected, the projector’s color temperature was fairly close to my target of 6500K. I used the projector's 2pt Grayscale adjustments to achieve better RGB balance by decreasing the amount of blue and increasing the amount of red in the image.

The P1000 includes a full suite of color adjustment settings, including 2-point White Balance Gamma and CMS. Once adjusted, the projector’s  RGB balance and color reproduction were outstanding.

  • Picture Mode: MOVIE
  • Gamma: 2.18
  • Color Temperature: 6509K
  • Average Grayscale dE: 0.9
  • Average Color Tracking dE: 0.6

When evaluating color reproduction, a Delta E measurement of 3 or less is considered ‘Excellent’ and imperceptible by the human eye. After SDR calibration, the average DeltaE measurements for both grayscale and color tracking were less than one, which was outstanding.

Out of the box, the P1000 produces remarkably vivid and accurate colors, exceeding my expectations. While the default settings have a slight green and blue bias, the P1000 consistently renders natural skin tones across various content (see screenshots from Passengers and Bill Maher's Real Time). This impressive brightness further enhances the color display.

Overall, NOMVDIC offers some of its class's best out-of-the-box color tuning. It caters to most users seeking immersive movie, TV, and gaming experiences. The 2,300 ANSI lumens of brightness allow colors to pop even in moderately lit rooms.

NOMVDIC's P1000 boasts a 2,300 ANSI lumen rating, outshining many competitors in its price range. This translates to a surprisingly vibrant picture, even with some ambient light present. While a darkened home theater remains the ideal setup, the P1000 impresses with its ability to hold its own in brighter environments.

This is largely due to its RGB LED light source and larger 0.65-inch DMD. The RGB LED delivers strong color saturation, while the 0.65-inch DMD offers improved contrast compared to smaller chips. While dark scenes will inevitably lose some detail in ambient light, combining these technologies helps the P1000's image stand out.

Gamers will particularly appreciate the P1000's strong brightness and contrast. For an immersive experience, you won't need a completely dark room, making it perfect for those who plan to enjoy big-screen gaming at LAN parties or social gatherings.

I set the projector to BRIGHTEST mode, the brightest picture mode available, and turned off any energy-saving features. I then took 3-4 readings about 15-20% out from the center of the screen.

The NOMVDIC P1000 measured 2155 ANSI lumens 145 ANSI lumens lower than the manufacturer's rated brightness.

The projector's more accurate picture modes did reduce the projector light output, but there was still more than enough brightness for viewing both SDR and HDR content on a 100″ screen in a room with uncontrolled ambient light.

The chart below shows the brightness measurements of the P1000's various HDR and SDR preset picture modes.

NOMVDIC claims a 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for the P1000. Out-of-the-box black levels are impressive, outperforming many pricier RGB LED DLP projectors and surpassing the P2000. SDR content, especially in GAMING mode, offers the deepest blacks, though with a slight loss of shadow detail. The TV and MOVIE preset compromise between black levels and detail. However, you can manually adjust the projector to recover some shadow detail at the expense of the absolute deepest blacks.

HDR content naturally prioritizes shadow detail over ultimate black levels. Given the P1000's focus on gaming, this is beneficial for spotting objects in dark game environments.

While the factory settings are solid, I always recommend professional calibration for the best possible performance from any projector. A quality ALR or high-gain screen will enhance black levels and shadow detail.

The colors the P1000 displays in its preset SDR modes are closer to what you normally see on a quality DLP projector: rich colors but not radioactive greens and nuclear reds like those on many lifestyle and gaming projectors. NOMVDIC clearly took some time to calibrate its preset picture modes. Blacks also look blacker with the SDR content I used to test this projector.

The screenshots I've provided show that the P1000 does an excellent job displaying very natural-looking upscaled high-definition and native 4K UHD images. All photographs are unadjusted for color, so they may not look as good as what the projector produced.

Most TV shows and live broadcasts are produced in HD and will continue for many years, so good 4K upscaling capabilities are critical when displaying this type of content. The NOMVDIC P1000 did an excellent job upscaling content from various HD sources, from 720p content on YouTube to 1080p Blu-ray content and even news content from CNN. It all looked very good.

While the NOMVDIC P1000 supports HDR10 and HLG, it's important to manage expectations. To accurately reproduce High Dynamic Range imagery re exceptionally high peak brightness is required which projectors in this category can't fully achieve. Think of the P1000's HDR as more of an "HDR-lite" experience.

Despite this, the projector's wide color gamut and effective HDR tone mapping enhanced the colors, shadow, and highlight details compared to standard content. Highlights pop more, and shadows reveal subtleties, though with some sacrifice in black levels. Well-mastered HDR content, like that in the slideshow above, will naturally showcase these benefits better than poorly produced material.

The photo of Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Far From Home demonstrates the P1000's color accuracy and less oversaturated presentation. The Passengers image is one I commonly use to test for shadow detail, revealing how the projector balances detail within darker areas. Finally, the shot from Joker highlights the P1000's impressive HDR handling of bright and dark elements within the same scene while showcasing accurate and vivid colors.

When viewing HDR material, the same picture modes are available as SDR. However, the picture adjustment settings for the HDR picture modes are independent. This means you can fine-tune the MOVIE preset mode for both SDR and HDR.

 Like SDR when viewing HDR, the MOVIE mode still produced the most accurate colors out of the box. Switching the USER mode Color Temperature to 6500k results in picture quality similar to MOVIE mode, but the default brightness and contrast settings are lower.

The RGB balance of HDR picture mode was similar to SDR mode, so most were too cool. Applying the same RGB adjustments as SDR results delivers good HDR Grayscale performance.

The P1000 offers three different HDR EOTF adjustments, which allow you to customize the projector's HDR tone mapping.

I chose to view most HDR content using the low EOTF mode, but it sacrifices some overall brightness. I also adjusted the CONTRAST setting to find the best balance between onscreen brightness and Highlight detail.

When viewing HDR material the black levels were elevated, regardless of the HDR mode or EOTF setting selected. I reduce the brightness by a couple of clicks to improve the blacks.

HDR encoding noticeably boosts detail and depth but slightly reduces the inherent saturation of the RGB LED light source and displayed brightness. While NOMVDIC's HDR performance is above average, I personally favored the projector's out-of-the-box SDR color calibration. This is not to say the HDR is bad – it's simply a matter of preference.

The NOMVDIC P1000 is a projector that prioritizes gaming, and it shows. Its key gaming-centric features, such as ultra-low input lag, high refresh rates, and HDR10 support, make it a compelling option for anyone looking to have an incredible big screen gaming experience.

The P1000's headline feature is its astonishing 4.2ms input lag at 1080p 240Hz. Since my gaming rig is an X-Box Series X and not a PC, I’m more concerned about this projector's 4K and 1080p  performance, and it did not disappoint. The P1000 features an ultra-fast Input mode that allows 4K 60Hz gaming at 16.7 ms and 1080p 120 Hz as low as 8.47 ms. Turning on this high-speed mode requires the projector to shut off quick setup features like auto geometry modes and others (but you shouldn't be using these to begin with as they impact picture quality). This translates into a near-imperceptible delay between your controller input and the action on the screen. This responsiveness is critical in fast-paced shooters or competitive games, delivering a serious advantage.

The P1000 is one of a very small number of gaming projectors that supports Xbox games designed to run at 2560 x 1440 120Hz. According to my contact at NOMVDIC, the company will offer support for PS5 high-resolution high refresh rate games in a future firmware update. The P1000's ability to run games at such an incredibly flexible range of resolutions and low lag results in incredibly smooth, fluid visuals. This lets gamers track motion and react quickly, especially in games with higher frame rates.

The projector also supports HDR gaming, which, in the right environment, adds an extra layer of vibrancy and depth to compatible games. The wider color gamut and increased dynamic range can create visuals with a greater sense of realism and punch. The P1000, while not the brightest gaming projector, is more than enough for most gaming sessions, even in moderately lit rooms.

The NOMVDIC P1000 is a fantastic projector for gamers seeking a big-screen gaming experience. Its low input lag, high refresh rates, and stunning picture quality easily position this projector in the top tier of available gaming projectors, with only its brightness holding it back.

The P1000 provides incredibly responsive gameplay, excellent picture quality, and sound and all at a very competitive $1699 MSRP.

Reading my P2000 review, you'll see I liked the Haron Kardon onboard sound system. However, that is an RGB Laser TV in a chassis almost three times the size of the little P1000. With the limited space on the P1000, I was not expecting much from the built-in sound package. But man, was I wrong!

Not only does the P1000 get loud, it does so with minimal distortion. The P1000 features three preset audio modes: MUSIC, SPEECH, and MOVIE.The Harman Kardon 6W Cube x2 also provides excellent audio imaging for gameplay and watching movies.

The projector's fan noise is very noticeable anytime you are watching content with lower volumes. I only mention this because there are many competitive gaming projectors that are far quieter.


NOMVDIC_P1000_MarketingImage#3 - Projector Reviews Images

The NOMVDIC P1000 is a compelling option in the growing category of sub-$2,000 gaming projectors. It is an excellent solution for gamers who demand immersive visuals and lightning-fast responsiveness. Replacing traditional lamps with a very bright LED light source means this projector can provide users with vibrant colors up to 125% of the Rec.709 color gamut, an extended lifespan of 30,000 hours, and an impressive 2,300 ANSI lumens of brightness for enjoying movies and games even in moderately lit rooms.

The NOMVDIC P1000 features a large 0.65-inch DMD, which delivers crisp 4K UHD resolution displaying the most intricate details in movies and 4K games. NOMVDIC's decision to use a 0.65-inch DMD offers multiple benefits depending on the content and preset mode the projector is set to. SDR content displays a noticeable improvement in overall black levels, allowing the P1000 to display some of the best blacks I've seen in its class and price point. When viewing HDR content, blacks are not as deep, but the large DLP DMD provides a noticeable boost in dark area details.

A dedicated GAMING preset picture mode provides users with a high-contrast image with accentuated colors perfect for gameplay. It also provides players minimal input lag, as low as 4.2 ms at 1080p 240 Hz and under 20 ms for 4K 60 Hz mode, allowing for fluid, responsive gameplay.

While the NOMVDIC P1000 runs on an Android-based OS, don't expect the convenience of built-in smart streaming, gaming, or productivity apps. Neither the Google Play Store nor a NOMVDIC-specific app store is available. The projector includes three basic apps for keyboard, remote control, and Bluetooth functionality. While NOMVDIC states that you can manually install third-party apps (.apk files), compatibility issues are likely, and you may need an external keyboard and mouse. Dealing with third-party Android app stores also carries potential risks.

My recommendation: For reliable and secure app access, either cast from your Android or iOS device (both supported) or invest in a dedicated smart media device from reputable brands like Amazon, Roku, Google, or Apple.

The P1000 is a bright, dynamic projector ideal for both high-intensity gaming and enjoying movies or TV shows at home or on the go (provided you have access to power). While its LED light source may lack the absolute color range of some RGB laser projectors, it boasts more than enough color capability to deliver stunning visuals for the vast majority of content, including 4K UHD Blu-rays. Plus, it displays dark scenes with deeper, more satisfying blacks than many of its similarly priced competitors.

The NOMVDIC P1000 is a versatile option appealing to gamers, movie lovers, and anyone seeking a quality projection solution that's easy to set up and use. NOMVDIC is still a new brand, and it remains to be seen if they'll gain the same level of trust as established names like Sony, LG, Hisense, or BenQ. However, their initial products show clear potential and suggest they could be a significant contender in the projection industry.



Comparing the Hisense C1 and the NOMVDIC P1000 reveals two projectors aimed at slightly different audiences. The Hisense C1 prioritizes image quality, particularly in terms of color accuracy and vibrancy, thanks to its TriChroma laser. However, its 1,600 ANSI lumens of brightness limits it to darkened rooms for the best viewing experience.

On the other hand, the NOMVDIC P1000 emphasizes brightness and contrast performance. The P1000's 2,300 ANSI lumens of brightness allow it to create an incredibly colorful image in spaces with less light control, making it better suited for casual viewing and gaming.

The Hisense C1 has an advantage with its VIDAA OS and dedicated app store, making it more comparable to a full-fledged smart TV experience. The NOMVDIC P1000, based on standard Android, requires more workarounds like sideloading apps or buying an affordable external streaming device like a FireStick or Google TV stick to access the same range of content as the C1.

Ultimately, the Hisense C1 is the choice for those desiring vibrant colors and a cinema-like experience in a darkened room, with a preference for image quality, value, and an out-of-the-box smart TV solution.

It's not a big deal as these are projectors, but the Hisense C1 supports dynamic metadata via Dolby Vision HDR. The P1000 supports HDR10 without the dynamic metadata support.

The NOMVDIC P1000 might be a better option if you need a brighter, punchier image for mixed-use settings with less-than-ideal light control and are willing to put in more effort to customize your streaming setup.


The XGIMI Horizon Ultra is a serious contender in the lifestyle projector category, aiming for a balance between portability and image quality. Its hybrid light source combines a red laser with RGB LEDs, prioritizing exceptional color accuracy. It boasts a claimed 99.9% coverage of the Rec.709 color gamut, ensuring vibrant, lifelike images that faithfully reproduce the original content. With a slightly above 2,300 ANSI lumens brightness, it rivals the NOMVDIC P1000 in overall image punch. It also offers support for HDR10+ with dynamic metadata for enhanced contrast.

The NOMVDIC P1000 leans into a traditional RGB LED light source but pushes beyond the usual limitations. NOMVDIC emphasizes its projector's exceptional contrast for deep blacks and a dramatic image presentation. Additionally, its 125% coverage of the Rec.709 color gamut indicates the potential for richer, more saturated colors than the XGIMI despite the laser advantage. Combined with its larger 0.65-inch DMD, the NOMVDIC P1000 aims to deliver the superior black levels essential for a truly immersive viewing experience.

The projectors take very different paths here. The XGIMI Horizon Ultra offers a seamless user experience with Android TV 11. This provides easy app integration, a vast content library, and overall polish. The NOMVDIC P1000 likely uses a less refined standard Android OS, potentially requiring riskier workarounds like sideloading apps from third-party sources.

For gamers, the NOMVDIC P1000 is the clear winner. It's explicitly marketed towards a gaming audience, prioritizing low latency for fast-paced action. The 4.2 ms input lag at 1080p 240 Hz is vastly superior to the XGIMI’s 30 ms at 1080p 60 Hz, making it far more responsive for competitive play.
