What is it? The Xiaomi Fengmi is what the Chinese call a laser TV, but we'll stick to the traditional definition - an ultra short throw projector (and a 4K one at that).
What makes it special? It is both 4K and UST. Plus, it has the backing of one of the biggest names in the world of technology and offers 3D support with compatible active glasses.
Why should I buy it? We have yet to find anything that comes close to it in terms of sheer value for money. If you're lucky enough to prove us wrong, let us know via Twitter.
How much does it cost? The deal is available from Banggood for $1559.99 (about £1161/AU$2088) until December 31 when you use code BGDec06, which applies to the ES Warehouse. That's an extra $11 off the current sale price of $1599.99 and nets you almost a fifth off its suggested retail price overall.

What else should we know? It offers a plethora of ports, including three HDMI (all 4K compatible), two USB slots, two audio ports, one AV and one Gigabit Ethernet. It supports voice control with DTS/Dolby sound compatibility across its four drivers. Add in an 8-point, Keystone correction, a rated 3000:1 contrast ratio and a 0.233:1 throw ratio and you get a capable projector at a reasonable price .
Any cons? The 1,700 ANSI Lumens is a bit weak compared to the competitor and there's no app store.
Have you reviewed it? Not yet, but we've reviewed the Bomaker Polaris 4K projector, which costs about 25% more.
