Emotn N1 review

Can a little projector built for Netflix be up to the task? Can it even do a bit more, or do you need to spend more?

Digital Camera World Verdict

If you're looking to get a big image on the wall for movie night, or to see your own masterworks, then this is a great choice at a very sensible cost. The design is thoughtful and the picture doesn't suffer from rainbow effects, while the official Netflix badge is reassuring too. The built-in OS has quirks, but delivers well for the cash.

The world has moved on from the point that projectors were for cinemas, lecture theatres, sports venues, and exorbitant home theatre setups. There is now a highly competitive class of portable projectors that can be moved around the home or office, even serving as a backyard drive-in cinema in the right weather. They do not demand that their users have detailed knowledge of home cinema cabling. 

That is the space the Emotn N1 steps into, and it does so by striking a deal with Netflix to pre-install the company's app and stick its logo on the box to really align itself with the Netflix-and-chill ideal.
