Over the past ten years, JMGO (pronounced J.M. Go) has brought a range of projectors to market, including two ultra-short-throw projectors I have reviewed, the JMGO 01 PRO and the JMGO U2. Check out the reviews by clicking on the model number links.
The JMGO N1 Ultra is the company's most powerful and feature-rich projector. The N1 Ultra also continues JMGO’s efforts to create projectors with visually compelling designs that stand out from mainstream projection offerings and enhance the user experience.

135° vertical adjustment and 360° horizontal adjustment

The N1 Ultra projector features integrated gimbal solutions for optimum adaptability. Its Ultra-Thin 2-axis Gimbal System allows up to 135° vertical adjustment and 360° horizontal adjustment. I cover this more in the HARDWARE section of this review, but this projector offers an attractive and functional design that I like very much.
The N1 Ultra is a Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector using a 0.47-inch Texas Instruments Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) with Extended Pixel Resolution (XPR) technology. The DLP chip is a (1920 x 1080 x4) imager and can display a 4K image.
The N1 Ultra also fully supports 3D for both movies and gaming as long as the user has a compatible pair of 3D glasses which JMGO sells as an option.
The N1 Ultra features a discrete RGB triple laser light source called NUMB12T. This high-tech laser was developed In collaboration with Nichia using an industry-leading 9-chip laser, the first of its kind to successfully integrate multiple RGB laser light sources. Compared to existing 14 or 28-chip lasers, the NUMB12T offers higher optical efficiency, a 40% smaller package size, and better heat dissipation at a 30% lower cost.

MALC (Microstructure Adaptive Laser Control) Triple Color Laser Optics

This new laser, combined with the JMGO-developed Microstructure Adaptive Laser Control (MALC) and Triple-Color Laser Optics, provides a premium audio-visual experience. The MALC optics use a modularized laser stacking technology for enhanced optical efficiency, smaller size, and improved heat dissipation performance.
The N1 Ultra features a quad-layered diffuser for improved brightness uniformity and a dynamic light speckle reducer (LSR), cutting specular artifacts caused by the lasers by 96%.
I can’t talk about light sources without discussing brightness and contrast. JMGO rates this projector at 4,000 ANSI lumens; it looks incredibly bright out-of-the-box. JMGO lists the projector's estimated light source life up to 30,000 hours. I will measure to test JMGO’s brightness claims later in the review.
Along with a bright picture, the N1 Ultra provides a native contrast ratio of 1,600:1, which shows. I’ll get into more detail in the PERFORMANCE section of the review but suffice it to say that this projector’s black levels are some of the best I’ve seen in its class and higher. The details visible in the darkest areas of the picture are insanely good, and the same for the brighter areas as well.
The N1 Ultra is fully compatible with HDR content, offering HDR10 and HLG compatibility, which I will go into more detail about in the PERFORMANCE section of this review. I like that JMGO has an HDR on/off control in the menu instead of locking the projector into auto-detect like most HDR projectors. With the N1 Ultra, I don’t have to disable HDR at the source like I usually do for my Apple TV 4K or 4K UHD Blu-ray player.
The colors this projector is capable of displaying are impressive. JMGO claims the N1 Ultra can display 110% of the BT.2020 color gamut and offers a 10-bit color depth.

JMGO N1 Ultra uses a fully integrated Android TV 11 operating system

The JMGO N1 Ultra is a smart projector powered by a fully integrated Android TV 11 operating system. Anyone who has read my reviews knows I think an integrated OS experience is critical for all smart projectors and a better user experience than hybrid menu systems. There is currently no better interface experience for projectors than Android TV with the Google Play app store. There are other non-hybrid projection operating systems but not ones open to other manufacturers, so Android TV is the best game in town for most of the industry. Along with Android comes key Google features like Google Assistant and Google Chromecast and, as mentioned above, access to most Android TV applications on the Google Play store and, more importantly, the best guarantee of compatibility, safety, and security of any Android application market.
The N1 Ultra has 3D TOF Sensors, CMOS Hi-res Cameras, and smart adjustment features, including Auto Screen Fitting, Smart Object Avoidance, and Smart Eye Protection. Here’s my advice, turn off the Auto screen fitting and Smart Object Avoidance and square the projector to the screen manually, taking advantage of the very cool and helpful built-in gimbal and tilt functions JMGO has provided. Once you have the projector set up how you want it, save the settings in the N1 Ultra’s preset memory.

The JMGO N1 Ultra's sound system was co-created by Dynaudio.

The JMGO N1 Ultra comes with a sound system co-created by Dynaudio, a leading Danish loudspeaker manufacturer. The system consists of two 10W speakers and offers 45Hz bass. I won’t pretend this is a sub-woofer, but this sound system performs better than some ultra-short-throw projector sound systems I’ve reviewed. The JMGO N1 Ultra’s sound system has received certification from both Dolby and DTS.

The JMGO N1 Ultra is a beautifully designed compact home theater projector. I’ve seen this projector described as minimalist, but I disagree. There is nothing minimal about this projector's design or performance. JMGO has maximized its design efforts to pack valuable home theater-sized functionality and performance into a compact chassis. If this projector were a car, it would be a Porsche 550 spyder.

Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Chassis - Projector Reviews - Image Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Chassis - Projector Reviews - Image Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Chassis - Projector Reviews - Image Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Chassis - Projector Reviews - Image

The JMGO N1 Ultra weighs 9.92lbs. (4.49 Kg) and measures 9.49” x 7.99” x 9.29” (241 mm x 203 mm x 236 mm).
The integrated 2-axis gimbal-like mechanism of the N1 Ultra projector allows for vertical, horizontal (rotational) adjustment of 135 degrees vertically and 360 degrees horizontally. It can be placed as the user wants and remain stable.
The JMGO gimbal-like display correction technology and multi-adaptive image correction tools, both automatic and manual, allow the projector to remain square and focused after being bumped out of position.
These intelligent geometric correction tools can be set up to run automatically each time the projector is turned on. As a result, there is no need to move the device itself to get a square image. Users can even point the projector to project a movie on the ceiling.
Unfortunately, there is just a single button for power on/off on the upper side of the projector’s rotating stand but no control panel for menus or volume on the projector.
The good news is that JMGO offers a free control app for both iOS and Android just in case you misplace your projector remote. The fact that an app is available is excellent, but I would still have preferred an on-device control panel.

All connections are located on the rear of the N1 Ultra. The projector speakers are located on each side, and the cooling system is on the back of the projector, with warm air being vented out the rear. The rear of the stand is also where the DC power brick gets plugged in.

The front of the JMGO N1 Ultra contains the projector's lens and sensors. The N1 Ultra has 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) Sensors and CMOS Hi-res Cameras. The sensors and cameras utilize intelligent recognition algorithms developed by JMGO based on user feedback and experience, allowing them to detect and adapt to the surrounding environment. These features include,

Adaptive Brightness: Adjust brightness according to ambient light.

Auto Screen Fitting: Automatically adapt to the screen precisely.

Smart Object Avoidance: Move the screen away from light switches and other obstacles on the wall.


Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Inputs - Projector Reviews - Image All inputs and connections are on the rear. The power input is on the rear right pivot arm.

The N1 Ultra projector is ideal for use in a home theater or game room, featuring two HDMI ports for connecting various gaming consoles, streaming sticks, and a dedicated sound system. JMGO’s choice to offer such a minimal number of inputs is unfortunate. There are just not enough of them.

The two HDMI ports are 2.1, with one of them offering Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) capability. There is a USB 2.0 Type-A port that should be USB 3.0, in my opinion.

JMGO upgraded the WiFi connectivity to WiFi 6 for improved speed and reliability. The N1 Ultra also features Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity or the ability to use the projector as an external speaker.


The focus uniformity of the N1 Ultra is excellent, maintaining a crisp image on my 120-inch screen, only softening at the very outer edges.

The projector has a throw ratio of 1.2:1. The JMGO N1 Ultra has a digital zoom lens and a powered lens focus. You can override the quick and precise autofocus and manually focus the image if desired.

The MALC Triple Color Laser Optics on the N1 Ultra can project a 4K UHD image. Furthermore, the Quad Layered Diffuser System enables precise diffusion for improved brightness uniformity. The Dynamic Light Speckle Reducer Technology (LSR) significantly reduces laser speckles by 96%, providing even brightness throughout images.

For more location flexibility, the N1 Ultra includes auto keystone correction software. The automatic keystone correction technology aligns N1 Ultra’s image vertically and horizontally to custom-fit walls or screens to an ideal aspect ratio at almost any angle.


The JMGO N1 Ultra remote is gray plastic and feels good in my hand. Like most Android TV remotes, this one features the most common buttons for everyday operations, including power on/off on the top left and a Google Assistant voice control on the right. The Google Assistant button is used for voice control of the projector and compatible 3rd party Internet of Things (IoT) devices via the Android TV and Google Assistant.
Below is the D-Pad-like 4-direction controller with a select button in the middle for navigation—buttons for back, menu, home, and volume.
Unfortunately, the remote does not have a backlight.

The JMGO N1 Ultra is a smart projector with a well-organized Android TV menu system that is easy to navigate. You will find the interface very familiar if you have used an Android phone or tablet. Users can access apps, settings, and other entertaining services from the customizable home page. Once in the JMGO N1 Ultra app menu, you can select a specific input, network settings, streaming apps, the built-in media player, or explore the Google Play Store.

The Settings Shortcut is the button that looks like a gear, which takes you directly to the basic settings menu.

I connected a 4K Apple TV with an HDMI cable. Using the HDMI Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) functionality, the N1 Ultra can control almost all current and past HDMI-enabled sources like DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD Blu-ray players. This functionality should also allow the projector remote to control a range of HDMI-enabled smart media devices.

In addition to the Android TV content and control menus, the N1 Ultra offers a range of automatic configuration tools and manual controls for keystone and focus.


One of the challenges of reviewing product launch samples is the inevitable issues that can crop up with the pre-production evaluation samples.

For example, the Digital image zoom and shift adjustments did not work. The digital image rotation feature in the same section did function but would sometimes not reset to the zero position.

The projector would not read any USB drive regardless of USB 2.0 or 3.0 or the format option. I tried FAT32, exFAT and NTFS. I even let the projector format the drives, but they could not be read by either my MAC or Windows computers.

JMGO assures me that the problems I’ve experienced are not found in any other review units. Projector Reviews has requested that JMGO send out a production unit so I can confirm these are indeed sample issues. We look forward to their agreeing to do so.

According to JMGO, accurate picture quality was a major priority. We were incredibly impressed when the JMGO N1 picture quality right out of the box.

JMGO provides six preset picture modes: VIVID, STANDARD, MOVIE, GAME, OFFICE, and USER. The N1 Ultra out-of-the-box is set to STANDARD mode, so the colors appeared slightly oversaturated.

Each of the projector's preset picture modes looked good, but MOVIE mode offers the best overall color reproduction. Most of the modes measured cooler resulting in a bluish image but they looked better than most projectors we have, except for Epson, BenQ, Sony, and JVC.

Unlike the two JMGOs we reviewed previously, the N1 Ultra has a full suite of calibration adjustments. Like most projectors with Android-based OS, the projector offers single-point color temperature adjustment.

We use Portrait Displays Calman color calibration software to test the projector's color accuracy.

Pre-Calibration Color Tracking and Grayscale​

When calibrating projectors, we target an average color temperature of 6500K and a Gamma of 2.2 The MOVIE mode measured very close to our color temperature target. While the color temperature of the MOVIE mode was 6500k, the white balance (Grayscale) was incorrect.
It was strange that the projector does not have a BRIGHTNESS control, so its BLACK LEVEL can not be properly adjusted using a black pluge pattern.
Out of the box, the N1 Ultra did not accurately track REC709 colors because the default AUTO option in the COLOR SPACE setting doesn't function properly.
When the COLOR SPACE setting is switched to ON, the projector correctly tracks Rec709. When viewing HDR, this COLOR SPACE setting automatically switched OFF, which looked correct.
  • Picture Mode: CUSTOMIZED
  • Gamma: 1.98
  • Color Temperature: 6495K
  • Average Grayscale dE: 14.6
  • Average Color Tracking dE: 9.22

Post-Calibration Color Tracking and Grayscale​

A Gamma adjustment is available in the advanced settings menu, and setting it to DARK achieved our target of 2.2.
The N1 Ultra offers a complete suite of calibration adjustments, including Color Management System (CMS) and 11-point white balance adjustments.
I set the COLOR TEMPERATURE to USER and adjusted RGB GAIN settings to correct the grayscale quickly. An 11pt WHITE BALANCE adjustment is available for fine-tuning, but the basic color temperature adjustments work so well that I did not feel it was necessary to use it.
Once the projector's color temperature was adjusted, and COLOR SPACE was set to ON, color tracking was good, just slightly under-saturated.
I did use the CMS to increase saturation and reduce the brightness of red, blue, and magenta resulting in a great color sweep and color checker measurements.
  • Picture Mode: MOVIE
  • Gamma: 2.19
  • Color Temperature: 6503K
  • Average Grayscale dE: 1.1
  • Average Color Tracking dE: 0.82

Delta E measurement of 3 or less is considered ‘Excellent’ and imperceptible by the human eye. After calibration, the projector had a grayscale average dE of 1.1, which is outstanding. An average post-calibration Color Tracking dE was just 0.82, which is great.

HDR has its own setting adjustments per mode. There are also dedicated COLOR TEMPERATURE and CMS adjustments for HDR.

HDR Grayscale​

When viewing HDR, like SDR, the color temperature was good when set to Movie mode. However the RGB Balance (Grayscale) needed to be corrected.
Each HDR picture mode has its own color temperature adjustments. We again used the single-point color temperature adjustments found in the COLOR TEMPERATURE setting to achieve good grayscale.
Once the grayscale was adjusted the JMGO did a good job tracking colors in HDR content.


The JMGO N1 Ultra has a manufacturer's rated brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens. So, how close did the N1 Ultra come to hitting that target? I set the projector to VIVID mode, the brightest picture mode, and increased the projector's Blacklight setting to 10. I then took three to four readings about 15-20% out from the center of the screen.

The JMGO N1 Ultra measured 2511 ANSI lumens which is about 1500 lumens less than JMGO’s brightness claim.

Out of the box, the projector's Backlight setting is set to 5 so the brightness of each picture mode is about 60% of the maximum. I measured each of the projector's preset picture mode's brightness. The results are in the chart below.

Preset Picture ModesBrightnessColor Temperature
VIVID1686 ANSI Lumens8,456K
STANDARD1,435 ANSI Lumens8,423K
MOVIE1,369 ANSI Lumens6,495K
GAME1467 ANSI Lumens8,472k
OFFICE1435 ANSI Lumens8,468K
USER1,451 ANSI Lumens8,472K

While the JMGO N1 Ultra did not meet its rated brightness, the projector's brightness output was still impressive for its compact size. The N1 Ultra was definitely bright enough to be used in a room with moderate ambient light.


The JMGO N1 Ultra produces good black levels and shadow detail. While the black was closer to the deep gray, the N1 Ultra is better than most other projectors in its class and price point. I’m not saying it can match the black levels and native contrast of an LCOS-based home theater projector but you will get black levels, but its performance was impressive for a compact DLP projector.

There are noticeable details in both shadow and bright highlights in HDR and SDR content, even in a space with ambient light. This projector does not crush blacks.


The JMGO N1 Ultra supports HDR encoded in either HDR10 or HLG. Since most HDR10+ and Dolby Vision content is either backward compatible with or available in HDR10, you can watch most of the HDR content available on 4K Blu-ray Discs and streaming services. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) was developed for live broadcasts, so you can enjoy sports and award shows when the networks start broadcasting.

While RGB laser light source can offered on several ultra-short throw projector, they are rarely available on standard throw projectors. The JMGO N1 Ultra is one of the few standard throw projectors equipped with an RGB laser light source so it can reproduce a wider range of colors than most standard throw projectors can not. JMGO’s in-house designed MALC triple-color RGB laser system can reproduce over 100% of the BT.2020 color gamut, so the N1 Ultra can easily reproduce the DCI-P3 color space commonly used in HDR content.

While the projector does not include dynamic tone mapping, it did a great job delivering overall brightness while still displaying a good amount of highlight detail. When displaying HDR content, the N1 Ultra can display a brighter image with more saturated colors than most projectors.


Even before calibration, the JMGO U1 Ultra produced good-looking skin tones when viewing HDR or SDR content. There are very few RGB laser smart projectors at the same price point that can match the JMGO N1 Ultra picture quality.

Most TV shows and live broadcasts will be in HD for at least several more years so good 4K upscaling is still critically important. The JMGO N1 Ultra did an excellent job upscaling. Whether I was watching 720P sports from ESPN or 1080p Blu-ray content, everything looked very good.


The N1 Ultra has a preset game mode, and when combined with the projector's HDMI 2.1 inputs, it provides an optimized gameplay experience. JMGO lists the N1 Ultra’s latency as 15ms at 4K 60 fps. 60 Hz is the projector's maximum refresh rate, even at 1,080p.

From my experience of console gaming with this projector, I found the N1 Ultra to offer a fast low lag level of performance. The N1 Ultra provides an enjoyably immersive 4K HDR gaming experience.


Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector Sound Quality - Projector Reviews - Image

Overall this projector has been a pleasant surprise, but the sound coming out of this little square cube is big, loud, and, best of all, deeper than many other Laser TV projectors I have reviewed.

JMGO continues its collaboration with Dynaudio taking advantage of every single bit of the projector's chassis to produce an audio experience that surpasses that of their previous projectors, including the JMGO U2. The N1 Ultra’s impressive sound system complements the projector's picture quality. With Dolby Audio and DTS certification, the Dynaudio 10W x2 sound system produces 45Hz Low Frequency (for a projector) bass.

The N1 Ultra features four audio preset modes: STANDARD, MUSIC, MOVIE, and SPORTS.


We do not measure audible noise, but the fan noise produced by the JMGO N1 Ultra is specified at 26 dB. The N1 Ultra is a quiet projector. Even with the projector set to its brightness light level, I could barely hear the N1 Ultra fan from where I sat to the projector's left side, about three feet away.

The JMGO N1 Ultra is a smart, 4K, triple laser projector selling for an MSRP of $2,299, available for pre-order on Kickstarter at an early-bird price of $1,299.00 for a limited number of early buyers. The N1 Ultra is a new design for JMGO. JMGO says it’s the world’s first 4K laser projector that works like a gimbal allowing it to be set up and easily adjusted.

The N1 Ultra measured 2511 ANSI lumens in my testing. This result is lower than the manufacturer's rated 4,000 ANSI lumens. I have to say that I find this result surprising because this projector looks bright to my eye. I double-checked my equipment, measured again, and got the same results.

While the JMGO N1 Ultra measured lower than its eared brightness, it still produced a bright, colorful image.

The N1 Ultra’s focus and brightness uniformity is excellent. The JMGO N1 Ultra uses Texas Instruments’ 0.47” DLP DMD imager with XPR technology that reproduces 4K content in SDR and HDR amazingly well.

This projector's black levels and shadow details are some of the best I have seen in its class and even a little above.

JMGO has built a premium, all-in-one home theater solution with a comprehensive list of features you could expect to find in a much more expensive projector.

The JMGO MALC triple laser engine provides an out-of-the-box color reproduction and calibration flexibility that today’s video enthusiasts require from a projector. The N1 Ultra projector can display 107 billion colors at a 10-bit depth and reproduce 210% of the Rec.709 color space and 110% of the BT.2020 color space. Put all the numbers aside, and you have a projector capable of displaying stunning imagery.

MALC Triple Color Laser Optics - Projector Reviews - Image

In addition to JMGO’s new MALC laser engine, they have submitted a patent for the projector LSR technology that smooths out specular artifacts, creating what JMGO describes as a natural and comfortable viewing experience. I agree.

The N1 Ultra’s focus and brightness uniformity is excellent.

When set to Standard brightness mode, the N1 Ultra offers up to 30,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. This projector will likely run long after you are ready to buy a newer model.

The N1 Ultra projector is ideal for a home theater system with two high-speed low- lag HDMI 2.1 ports, a USB 2.0 connection, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. I would prefer that JMGO had added an additional HDMI connection and a faster USB 3.0 port.

JMGO has included a WiFi 6 network connection and the latest Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity.

Jmgo N1 Ultra 4K Projector - Projector Reviews - Image

The projector's sound quality is another standout feature of the N1 Ultra. JMGO has continued collaborating with Dynaudio producing their best-sounding audio system so far. JMGO says the N1 Ultra can produce 45Hz low-frequency sound. Since we don't do sound measurements here at Projector Reviews, I can only say that this projector's bottom end was some of the best I've heard in a projector. When this is combined with the N1 Ultra's soundstage, it makes for a very enjoyable listening experience an improves the overall entertainment experience.

The N1 Ultra uses the latest Android TV 11 operating system with smart features. The menus are easy to navigate. The projector is loaded with popular streaming apps like YouTube. Netflix is not supported.

You can use the remote for voice control with its built-in microphone to access basic projector features. The remote also controls various compatible smart devices via Google Assistant. The N1 Ultra supports Chromecast functionality as well.

The Tri-Laser Light source and gimbal design make the JMGO N1 Ultra a unique standard throw projector

Regarding the essential elements of a projector, the picture and sound, JMGO has created a projector that is a performance beast with fantastic color, black levels, and shadow detail that results in one of the best-looking and sounding projectors I’ve reviewed in its price point.

The JMGO N1 Ultra features a premium design that is good-looking and functional with the gimbal adjustments.

The rest of this projector's software features should offer an improved user experience if JMGO fixes the production models so they don’t suffer the same software issues I experienced.

Although JMGO N1 Ultra is a long-focus projector, its laser color is great, and its brightness is above 4000ansi lumens. If it is used with an ordinary long-focus anti-light curtain, there will be light spots, and the UST ALR anti-light curtain of VIVIDSTORM can solve the problem of light spots.
This is the comparison picture of the customer using the VIVIDSTORM UST alr anti-light floor curtain and projecting it on the white wall.
