N-Tech Promises A Ridiculously Affordable Ultra-Compact 4K Projector

Stephan Jukic – February 8, 2018

If you’ve been wanting a full-blown 4K UHD home theater projector for some serious movie watching power but get a headache from just glancing at the prices these things go for, then N-Tech might just have a solution for you. The company is working to offer one hell of a potential alternative to devices like some of Sony’s native 4K projection models, which are genuinely awesome but can retail for absurdly high prices of over $20,000 and remain crazy expensive despite it now being 2018 and holy crap why didn’t this technology get cheap yet?

The N-Tech gadget might just solve that last question extremely competitively. Designed as a wireless, portable model with one extremely compact, stackable form factor, the little device even comes packed with built-in surround sound speakers. Best of all, it’s going to supposedly offer 4K ultra HD resolution, great luminosity and possibly even HDR for a fantastic promised price of just $475.

We say possibly because the little projector isn’t available yet., Instead, N-tech is offering it as the promised result of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that hasn’t quite yet completed.

What they claim however (assuming they really do deliver) is impressive. The projector comes with an entirely unique design as you can see from the images here and can be rotated 360 degrees for extremely easy adjustment to projection on any surface in a room. There is even an option for adjusting the mount to let the device project straight up into a ceiling.

The N-Tech projector will deliver 4K resolution at 3,840 x 2160 pixels, with support for 4K video at 60FPS and a projection size that ranges between just 32 inches and a whopping 360 inches at distances of between 2.6 and 29.5 feet. The projector will also offer a very decent luminosity of 1,500 ANSI lumens, which is comparable to what we’ve seen with more “affordable” Sony 4K models that still cost several thousand dollars. Other features will include a battery module with 8 hours of life and speaker power of 3 Watts. There will also be connectivity options for HDMI (vital for 4K content), WiFi, USB and Bluetooth. The device even comes with a built-in 32GB storage unit.

Like we said, the N-Tech projector is quite tiny relative to the usual in this market. It’s just 6.75 inches wide and 4.5 inches long.

N-Tech is promising early investors a delivery price of just $475 and the estimated delivery time for this powerful-sounding home multi-media device is September of 2018. There is some risk to them not delivering on this but if they do and the N-Tech projector works as well as its specs indicate, then it’s going to really burn Sony and other 4K home theater projector makers into dropping their own prices.

What we don’t yet have clear on the little device is whether the 4K it offers is the true, native kind that Sony’s models deliver or the upscaled 4K of cheaper alternatives from Epson, Optoma and others. Quite frankly, even if it only does upscaled pixel-shift 4K resolution, at $475 it’s still a lot cheaper than anything else we’ve seen with the words projector and 4K in its name.

    Dear Mr Wang
    This letter is written to you by way of complaint in the very strongest terms possible and is nothing short of a wholesale condemnation of you.
    At the outset, it is of course worth noting your global high profile, coupled with your self-proclaimed accolades as to your reputation and your reference to being a platform where “…groundbreaking ideas take flight.”
    The reality is that the only “groundbreaking” aspect of Indiegogo is its ability to facilitate the separation of investors from their money with no tangible returns and then to seemingly be utterly aloof to that.
    In particular, I would refer you to Mr. Wang’s Campaign for the “N-Tech: World’s First All-In-One Portable Smart 4K.”
    This has to date raised close on one million US dollars and yet many investors, including myself, have seen nothing in return by way of perks, refunds or anything else come to that.
    Given that this continues unabated, I assume that you are either aware of this, and simply do not care, or aren’t aware of this and really should be. Either is unacceptable.
    Here is a very slender selection of some of the feedback that this particular Campaign has created.
    • “I just received the IndieGoGo email for the survey on how I like my perk and how they are doing. Does IndieGoGo think this is a joke as well?”

    • “And IGG is just making all the money disappear slowly… now $906,858 USD / A month ago $924,228 / Started at $956,386.”

    • “Again I will state that Indiegogo should accept contributions to campaigns into escrow. That way, as the campaign makes progress, funds are released in stages AND when a campaign goes belly-up, the backers have some recourse and can hold the campaign managers responsible and accountable. I agree with comments here: Indiegogo will NEVER GET ANOTHER CENT OF MY MONEY. I am filing a claim through my credit card company, but I am also filing charges against both Indiegogo AND the campaign manager.”

    And then from myself:

    • “I have another two investments that look like they are going South as well. I shall never take part in investing with Indiegogo. This should be on social media and TV.”

    And there are many, many others out there that report the same. Despite that litany of grievances against you, you maintain your infuriating shoulder-shrugging indifference to the plight of investors regardless.

    What a truly dismal state of affairs this is. Your sole modus operandi is predicated upon good faith. Yet no good faith, let alone tangible benefit, is returned by you.

    As detailed earlier, your aforementioned “reputation” is ill-deserved and self-serving. It is quite apparent that the lofty ideals that you preach for others are simply not applicable to yourself.

    Indiegogo therefore needs to be subject to the highest levels of critical exposure possible, including social media, television and all other media platforms until such time as your highly questionable business practices are common knowledge.

    That you have the audacity to continue to both act the way you do, and promote yourself the way you do, beggars belief and is an affront to the good intentions of potentially millions of investors. Quite how Indiegogo have avoided telling litigation that exposes them for what they are is utterly beyond me and no doubt millions of others.

    I invite your considered reply to this missive and expect a response within a reasonable time-frame of 7 days.

    You will of course note the open nature of this correspondence. I therefore reserve the right to disclose this to any third party of my choice, at any point in time, as I deem fit.

    Yours faithfully,
