Elmo BOXi-T350 review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £426
inc VAT

A good portable projector for home and office use, but it has a limited range of ports and is very noisy


1,280×800 resolution, 300 ANSI lumens, 43x132x143mm, 500g

Sadly, the BOXi-T350 has few connection ports, but its HDMI input and 3.5mm audio output should prove useful for many users. Conveniently, an HDMI cable is supplied with BOXi-T350. We’d expect to see a few more connections on a projector at this price, though. The similarly priced Optoma ML550, for instance, has a microSD card slot for easy photo viewing and MHL support so you can project the displays of MHL-compatible phones and tablets to it.

We weren’t particularly impressed with the BOXi-T350’s menu settings, either. Basic interface aside, you can only alter a handful of settings, including brightness, contrast and vertical keystone correction. You can also choose from several picture settings, including Normal, User, Movie, Photo, Game, Graphs and Max, but most of them looked almost identical.

We preferred to use the customisable User mode, but even this was fairly restrictive. In addition to the general brightness and contrast controls, the only options available were colour temperature, gamma settings and a choice between a “wide” and “standard” colour gamut.

This doesn’t leave much scope for fine-tuning images when you’re watching movies or playing games, but once we’d selected the “wide” colour gamut option and turned the lights off, our images looked great. Colours were bright, vivid and accurate, and we didn’t feel any need to adjust anything else in the menu settings.

The Elmo BOXi-T350 is a good portable projector, but our main concern is the price. You don’t have to spend much more to buy the Optoma ML550, which has a wider range of ports, a quieter fan and a brighter lamp. The T350’s lack of internal memory also makes it less versatile than the Asus P1M.
