By XGIMI Tech - 2022-08

Why Pick Laser Projectors? 

Laser projectors with 4K picture quality like AURA can help you create the fantastic home theater you have always dreamed of to fit all your viewing needs. XGIMI AURA stands out as an excellent 4K laser projector with outstanding features like ultra-short-throw technology, 4K picture resolution, and 2400 ANSI lumens, all of which make it an ideal fit for your dream home theater. 

This article will discuss the differences between laser and LED projectors, highlighting their pros and cons, provide brief recommendations for choosing both projector types and review the numerous AURA features which make it an excellent fit for your home theater.

Differences Between Laser And LED Projectors

LED projectors use light-emitting diodes to project video content on a flat screen. They are also relatively lightweight and compact as they are not designed with heavy and complicated parts. 

Laser projectors, on the other hand, produce the desired image on a screen through changing laser beams. As a result, the projected photos and videos are often brighter and with more accurate colors. For full-color projections, these devices rely on separate red, green, and blue lasers.

Both LED and laser projectors can efficiently deliver desired projections, so you should choose the one which fits your dream home theater. Here are some pros and cons to guide you in choosing between LED and laser projectors. 

LED Projectors

Pros

  • Usually compact and lightweight since they no longer have heavy electric components like lamp projectors, thus making them easy to handle and move about within the home. 
  • LED projectors consume less power since they use light-emitting diodes, which are less energy-consuming to project images and videos, allowing them to run for a long time.
  • Cooler and safer when in use because the LED mechanism within them exerts less stress on the projector's lens, thus reducing the risk of distortion or degradation.
  • LED projectors are less expensive and do not require much maintenance. 

Cons

  • Not as bright as laser projectors, so they are not always satisfactory in different light conditions. For instance, the projections of an LED projector in a room with ambient light may not be as bright and clear as you would prefer.
  • LED projectors often have a lower picture quality and video resolution when compared with laser projectors. So projections done on a wall or another surface other than the projector's screen may appear less realistic and authentic.
  • Compared to laser projectors, they can be noisy during use.

Laser Projectors

Pros

  • Comes with ultra-short-throw technology, which offers a widescreen display from a short distance. As a result, they are ideal for various room theaters regardless of size or dimension. Can also be placed on the screen on a table close to the screen and still produce a fullscreen display making them a perfect fit for small theater rooms. 
  • Produces high-quality displays using laser projection technology. Since the lasers create and project light directly, image quality and display contrast are expertly maintained. 
  • Utilize lasers to create the projected images and videos; thus, they consume significantly less energy while producing high display quality, brightness, and contrast. They also require relatively low maintenance and offer near-instant on/off functionality. 

Cons

  • Compared to other projector types, laser projectors are often quite expensive. Regular laser projectors cost between $2,000-$6,000, depending on their different features, as those with more advanced features cost more. They are often costly due to the components used in their design.
  • Relatively heavier and bulkier than regular projectors due to their build and design, so moving them within the home may be frustrating. 

Although both projector types can give you a fantastic viewing experience, there are some factors you should consider when getting one for your home theater:

You should consider LED projectors if: 

  • You have a home theater room with controlled light conditions at all times;
  • You are creating or building your home theater room with a limited budget as they are less expensive and more affordable;
  • You need a compact and lightweight projector that you can quickly move around within your home.

You should consider using laser projectors if: 

  • You desire to watch movies and play games with high-quality displays and excellent contrast ratio;
  • You have a small home theater room and still want an ideal projector for your viewing needs; 
  • You want to watch your favorite movies and shows in a room theater where the light conditions are not controlled.
