Yaber Y60 vs Yaber Y61: Which One is Better?

Yaber Y60 and Yaber Y61 are 2 versions of cheap Chinese projectors available at Amazon. When you are shopping for a cheap projector, most of the specs mentioned in their spec sheet doesn’t make sense. So, don’t get too much excited by looking at the big numbers.

Display

Brightness6000L6000L
Contrast Ratio (FOFO)5000:16000:1
Native Aspect Ratio4:3/16:9/auto4:3/16:9/auto

As per these specs, both these projectors have a native resolution of 1280×720 displaying 1280 pixels horizontally and 720 pixels vertically.

It looks that the brightness figures are too much exaggerated, even $1000 branded projectors don’t have those many lumens of brightness.

In this Display section, these projectors show their Contrast Ratio as 5000:1 and 6000:1 which is common across cheap projectors in the market.

Light

As per Yaber’s claim, the life of the light source is more than 100000 hours which is a bit too much. Typical standard projectors have their lamp source up to 15000 hours.

Verdict

Going by the specs Yaber Y60 is good as it provides more ports than what we have in Yaber Y61. But as I said earlier, both these projectors are cheap projectors, ideal for kids to watch cartoon shows and some casual watch during the night.

Though the specs look below average, there is a lot of good talk about both of these projectors in the user comments section of various shopping portals.

My suggestion would be to save this money on a well-known projector brand and be tension-free.
