Mogo Pro is about six inches high and can play for up to four hours thanks to the rechargeable battery. The built-in Harman Kardon speakers sound great, and are tall enough for a bedroom, for example – but don’t expect them to fill a living room, basement or other home theater area.
Similarly, do not expect to use it in a brightly lit room. CNET’s Rick Broida came in handy with Mogo Pro and reported that although he thought the overall picture quality was excellent, the LED light source can only handle 300 ANSI lumens. There are more than most projectors of this size, but it still means you need dim or no ambient lighting to really enjoy the show.
The projector has a critical feature that makes it really stand out from the crowd: native 1080p (1,920×1080 pixels) resolution. Many cheaper projectors claim “1080p support”, but that only means they have room for 1080p sources and actually output a lower resolution image – sometimes quite lower, such as 858×480.
Mogo Pro also runs the Android TV operating system, which runs a close second to Roku as the best streaming operating system. To be clear, this is not just Android, but Android TV – and it makes all the difference. It has a beautiful and easy-to-navigate, external user interface with almost any streaming channel you could want – HBO Max, Disney Plus, even Apple TV – just a download away.
This is a great little projector that beats well over weight. But the agreement ends today.
