It is often hard to find a good mini projector as the specs and price tend to vary greatly from projector to projector.
As a result, it is best to take a deeper dive into each projector to better understand its strengths and weakness and whether or not it is worth the price. The same goes for the popular Yowhick DP02W Mini Projector.

The Yowhick DP02W Mini Projector features:
- 9,000 Lumens
- HDMI, USB, AV, and Aux Ports
- 4K Support
- Full HD (1920 by 1080P)
- HiFi Speaker
Being a mini projector, it only weighs 2.05 pounds and has dimensions of 5.9 by 5.1 by 2.5 inches. It is also capable of increasing its projection size from 33 inches to 200 inches which makes it a good option for outdoor use as well.
It is not a 5G WiFi projector, nor does it have Bluetooth technology. However, if you are still wanting to cast from your phone or another device, then you can buy a Miracast device which can then be plugged into the HDMI port and enable you to wirelessly cast from your device.
This mini projector is priced at around $90 which makes it more of a budget option. However, if you plan to buy a Miracast device with it, then you can expect to pay an additional $60 to $100.
For the pros, compared to other similarly priced mini projectors, the Yowhick DP02W has all the similar specs with the exception of its high lumen count of 9,000 which will make it great for both indoor and outdoor use.
It also comes with plenty of ports for its size including an AUX port if you want to connect an external speaker to it.
On the downside, it does not have built-in wireless capabilities which means either a Miracast device will need to be bought along with it, or you will have to bring and use an HDMI cord to watch movies.
The small size and weight makes it easy to carry anywhere, and the picture quality is surprisingly decent for this price range and form factor…The sound quality is usable enough that you don’t have to carry a separate sound source, but I still recommend attaching some speakers when possible…
On the opposite end, with a one-star rating, one reviewer wrote:
The speakers on this projector are not very loud. I wasn’t really concerned when I order because I planned on using an external one. The problem is the sound quality was so poor coming out of the device it’s unusable, insane amount of interference. I tried multiple external devices and had the same result so this is not a product I am keeping.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly mini-projector, then the Yowhick DP02W is a great option. While the included features are basic, they are all you need to enjoy a movie experience.
However, for those looking for a wireless capable projector, then this speaker is not the best option. While you can buy a Miracast device, it would make more sense to use that money and buy a projector with wireless capabilities.
