TLDR;

The AWOL VISION 4K 3D Triple Laser Projector LTV-3000 Pro aims to deliver an immersive home theater experience with its 4K UHD resolution, HDR support, and built-in 36-watt stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos. It offers smart features via Android 9.0, streaming capabilities enhanced by the included Fire TV Stick 4K Max, and flexibility with screen sizes from 80-150 inches through its ultra-short throw design. However, it has some drawbacks like mediocre build quality, limited connectivity options, and potential compatibility issues with certain apps.

When compared to the XGIMI Aura, a top competitor, the LTV-3000 Pro falls slightly behind in areas like design aesthetics, sound quality, and user interface. The Aura boasts a sleeker metal/plastic build, more powerful Harman Kardon audio system, and better optimized Android UI. But the LTV-3000 Pro has a higher 3,500 lumen brightness rating and longer 20,000-hour laser lifespan. Both offer excellent 4K HDR picture quality suitable for an immersive home cinema, making their relative strengths and included perks important considerations for buyers.

Unboxing

The AWOL Vision LTV-3000 came securely packaged in styrofoam within the box. It included some of the basics such as owner's manual, power cord, remote control, and AV input cord as well as a few extras. The AWOL Vision LTV-3000 also came with a Fire TV Stick 4K Max for convenient streaming and a couple of 3D glasses. After unboxing I found the set-up and installation were user-friendly and fairly straightforward.

Moving on to the overall design of the projector. 

Design and Build Quality

When looking at this laser projector, I am intrigued by its shape. The smooth contours of the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro compelled me to think of some kind of modern abstract art piece. In some ways, it reminds me of a robotic clam, and in this abstract perception, I am allured to this clam’s “pearl”, as the Ricoh F2.0 Glass Lens of the laser projector, that produces sharp image quality. I’ll stop with the metaphors now.

The AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro casing is mostly comprised of plastic which I found suitable for its function, though lacking in the overall structural quality that I have found in other projectors. Because of its unique shape, I can presume that it was probably cheaper for the manufacturers to construct. I found that these minor shortcuts in design take away from the overall durability and integrity of the design.

Weighing at 21 pounds, the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro dimensions measure 5.7 inches in height, 23.6 inches wide, and 13.9 inches in depth. It essentially is around comparable size to other laser projectors such as the XGIMI Aura. It won’t be very difficult to find a place for it to live in your home theater setup. 

Looking at the back of the laser projector, I found it has two HDMI outputs, one of them being HDMI ARC, one LAN connection, one USB port, one AV input, and a S/PDIF port. There is a nicely hidden compartment in the back of the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro where you can connect the HDMI port to your Fire TV Stick 4K Max.  

The fans on the side of the projector are nicely tucked away behind a metal grating and aren’t noticeable to the naked eye. I tested them at 34 decibels when starting a movie with some slight fluctuations but maintained a consistent level between 34-35 decibels, making it fairly quiet. 

Smart Features and Streaming Capabilities

The AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro features the Android 9.0 operating system, offering a user-friendly interface and access to a plethora of apps and streaming services. I found that the inclusion of the Fire TV Stick 4K Max made convenient streaming of popular content platforms. While the projector provides an excellent selection of streaming options, I found some potential compatibility issues or limited availability of certain apps should be considered before purchase.

Performance

The AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro sets the stage for an extraordinary visual experience with its high-quality 4K UHD resolution. From movies to sports and gaming, this projector brings images to life with exceptional clarity. Supporting various HDR formats, including HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG, it elevates color and contrast for a dynamic and immersive viewing experience.

Vibrant colors and lifelike representation define this projector's prowess. While color reproduction is generally accurate, I found that ambient light conditions may slightly affect picture quality. Optimal results are achieved in a dark or controlled lighting environment, ensuring an impressive display every time.

The AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro's built-in stereo speaker system boasts 36 watts of total power output. Although the integrated speaker system doesn’t have built-in subwoofers like the XGIMI Aura, the speakers delivered clear and balanced sound, enhanced by Dolby Atmos support for a three-dimensional soundstage. Whether it's action-packed movies, video games, or music, the audio performance enhances your overall home theater setup.

I tested for brightness and projection capability and the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro comes with a brightness rating of 3,500 lumens. I found this projector adapts fairly well to various lighting conditions, maintaining vibrant and well-defined images. The ultra-short throw capability allows for a larger screen size even in smaller spaces, a great option for those with limited room. Supporting ALR screens further enhances image quality by reducing the impact of ambient light, ensuring better visibility in well-lit rooms.

While testing for screen size compatibility, the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro tailors pretty well to your viewing experience, with screen sizes ranging from 80 to 150 inches. The flexibility allows customization based on room size and personal preferences, delivering impressive visuals across different screen sizes.

Utilizing a laser light source, the performance and durability of the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro boasts a longer lifespan of up to 20,000 hours or more, eliminating the need for frequent bulb replacements. Laser projectors often deliver better color accuracy and brightness consistency. However, users should be aware of the laser speckle artifact that I had encountered briefly. Laser speckle artifact is a minor visual phenomenon that may be noticeable in specific conditions. 

In terms of black levels, the projector performed well, though slightly elevated compared to other ultra-short throw models. While this may impact dark scenes' depth and detail, it's unlikely to significantly detract from overall content enjoyment.

Additional Benefits

There are additional benefits to purchasing the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro. It comes with some pretty enticing perks such as free nationwide shipping, a 30-day hassle-free return policy for peace of mind, and price assurance to guarantee the best available price.

AWOL VISION's commitment extends to providing expert assistance and access to preferred installers, ensuring a seamless setup for your home theater system.

Product Comparison: AWOL VISION LTV-3000 to the The XGIMI Aura

The XGIMI Aura stands out as a top contender to the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro for several key reasons. The XGIMI Aura projector boasts outstanding 4K UHD similar to the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 and supports various HDR formats, ensuring exceptional clarity and vibrant colors in the visual experience. 

Priced at $3,999 MSRP, the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro offers 4K UHD resolution and supports HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG, ensuring sharp visuals with improved color and contrast. Both projectors use laser light sources for extended lifespans, but the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro has a rated lifespan of up to 20,000 hours, slightly shorter than the XGIMI Aura's 25,000-hour rating.

I found that the overall quality of design the XGIMI Aura possessed outranked the AWOL Vision LTV-3000. The manufactures utilized better materials for the XGIMI Aura as it was composed of both metal and sturdier plastic with a sleeker look. It felt and looked durable in comparison to the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro. The remote control was also nicer with a metal face plate and bluetooth voice command which the AWOL VISION LTV-3000 Pro did not have. Although the XGIMI Aura’s remote was not backlit, the outlay of the control pad was minimal and very easy to navigate. The AWOL Vision LTV-3000 fell short to the XGIMI Aura aesthetically as well as in craftmanship.

The XGIMI Aura possess a  high-quality sound system with Harman Kardon speakers delivers deep rich audio with two 15-watt woofers and two 15-watt tweeters. On the other hand, the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro has its built-in stereo speaker system with 36 watts of total power, coupled with Dolby Atmos support that provides a clear and balanced audio experience. The two are competitively comparable with subtle differences, however the overall depth of sound of XGIMI Aura created a deeper fuller sound than the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro.

The AWOL projector's brightness rating of 3,500 lumens and ultra-short throw capability enhance adaptability to different lighting conditions and screen sizes, offering a more versatile home theater setup. The XGIMI Aura delivered impressive sharp pictures and detailed images that captivate viewers. The projector features a 2,400-ANSI-lumen laser-phosphor light source, ensuring vivid colors and clear visuals, even in well-lit surroundings. With that said, the XGIMI Aura has limited color calibration options that may impact image quality potential affecting the overall image quality.

Both the XGIMI Aura and the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro support the Android 9.0 operating system.  The AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro is provided with a Fire TV Stick 4K Max to ensure a user-friendly interface and convenient streaming options, without the Fire TV Stick the user interface is underwhelming poor in comparison to the XGIMI Aura’s user interface. 

The AWOL Vision LTV-3000 Pro provides nationwide shipping, hassle-free returns, and expert assistance which is a pretty good incentive for the buyer. The XGIMI Aura, on the other hand, provides lifetime customer support, fast and free shipping, 30-day money back guarentee, and a 12-month hassle-free warranty making it an tough contender against the AWOL Vision LTV-3000 pro.

Both projectors offer strong features, the comprehensive connectivity, excellent picture quality, and customer support. The subtle differences between the two make it a tough decision but with the help of this review, you can rest assured with better knowledge when making a decision when purchasing a high defintion3 laser projector. 

I also did a review on The XGIMI Aura where you can find more detailed information and in depth experience on the XGIMI Aura.
