The Design and Specs

The LUMOS DAWN Projector is a very straightforward projector. It reminds me of a traditional projector but it is lighter and more portable. It weighs 0.75kg with dimensions of 20 x 7× 6 cm – perfect to set in a tabletop or mount on a tripod.

The lens is located on the front left side, while the speaker is at the back next to the Power Button. There is an air vent on the side to keep it cool and prevent overheating for long hours of use. The ports are on the other side for easy access. The focus ring sits with the lens which is easy to navigate and turn.

Setting Up the LUMOS DAWN Projector

The LUMOS DAWN Projector is a very straightforward device. After turning it on, you just need to connect to your WIFI and finish the set-up (language and timezone) to start enjoying any media/videos.

It is advisable to put the LUMOS DAWN Projector on a flat surface or table, but I preferred to mount it on my tripod (I used this sturdy tripod), to give a full view level of the screen.

My Experience Using the LUMOS DAWN Projector

It took me less than 10 minutes to set-up the LUMOS DAWN Projector and I am ready to enjoy my favorite shows and music videos on a wider screen.

The Keystone Corrector ring adjusts the sharpness of the screen, which is very much like adjusting the lens of a camera.

It is running with Android 9.0 Operating System with Google Play for options to download specific streaming apps. It is powered with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM so I can download and store my favorite media/videos.

I can navigate through the screen via the Remote Control, but I also have the option to connect my mouse or keyboard to easily navigate and type/search for specific content.

One of the cool features of the LUMOS DAWN Projector is it allows screen mirroring via a smartphone or laptop. You simply connect via the QR code and you can start sharing videos or images from your mobile phone. It is a nice feature when sharing photos/videos with family; we especially enjoyed watching our Tiktok videos.

Even with the bright room, I can already see clear video from the LUMOS DAWN Projector. The 2,500 Lumens that project 600p native clear resolution with 1080p support resolution video quality made this all possible.

The LUMOS DAWN Projector has Dolby Audio Speakers which produce loud audio that can fill a large room, but if you are particular with the sound quality, especially when listening to your favorite artists, you can connect your own preferred speaker or headphones. There is also an option to connect via Bluetooth or audio output for a more immersive experience.
