Hi guys. I'm considering buying a new projector and deciding between either getting XGIMI Horizon Pro ($1,699) or the XGIMI H3S ($899). I wondered if there's any key difference between buying the XGIMI H3S in China since all the specs and designs seem very similar but at a much lower price. Could you guys tell me if there's anything I should look out for or be aware of about their differences (ie. language issues, major spec differences) to help me make my decisions. Thank you in advance!

The XGIMI H3S should be a Chinese version, if memory serves, it should have an overseas version called XGIMI Horizon, perhaps, both of them are 1080p.

XGIMI Horizon Pro is more expensive because it is 4K. Honestly, the price difference between them is mainly in resolution and memory, maybe also some other minor differences.

I personally think the first thing to consider is your budget, how much you want to pay, so what you will get.

If you want a low-priced 1080p XGIMI projector, you will save a lot of money.

If you want better picture quality, I actually wouldn't recommend the XGIMI Horizon Pro, because the Dangbei Mars Pro in this price range has a better configuration.

Thank you so much for all your replies, everyone! I really appreciate your help.

Yes H3S is not available elsewhere and likewise, Horizon Pro is also not available in China. Considering that since XGIMI is a Chinese company, I was wondering if it's part of their product marketing strategy to have different names sold in China and other parts of the world since their supply chain is mainly sourced and manufactured inside the country (hence the low cost) but have very similar technology associated in these two models.

I understand that horizon pro supports 4k and H3S is 1080p. There are some Bluetooth differences and some minor differences however other than that I feel like it's still very much the same. (maybe it would be better to compare to the Horizon, not the Horizon Pro). With all of your help, I think I will be getting the H3S then, taking into account the price differences when they sell overseas. Thank you again everyone!

XGIMI is a Chinese company, so they will have different strategies for the global market, and products sold in different regions may be upgraded or changed based on older models (as a way to adapt to the policies and user needs of different regions).

Of course, I would recommend buying a product that is available in your region so that it is more convenient for you when you need after-sales support.
