The VANKYO Leisure 3 Mini Projector Review is possible due to affiliates and readers, thank you!
When it comes to home theater movie projectors, you can easily spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. It can be easy to get lost in the vast array of technology available to consumers nowadays.
However, a newer type of projector technology that has become more and more popular is mini projectors! A mini projector brings all the things you love about home theater projectors into a small form factor.
With a mini projector, you can place it somewhere in your home, move it around or use it as a portable projector. There are tons of options available!
In today’s review, we’ll be taking a look at the VANKYO Leisure 3 Mini Projector. And, with that we’ll go over the features of the projector, how it performs and if you should purchase it!
Who is VANKYO?
The VANKYO store opened in 2017 and has since designed several high-technology viewing experience devices. One of their biggest successes has been the Leisure line of projector, and is devoted to continuously updating and improving the experience.
Starting off with the Leisure 3 Mini Projector’s features. Firstly, it is a 1080p projector, meaning that it supports up to a 1920×1080 resolution. This is a high-definition display format and is common among movies and TV.
Secondly, VANKYO uses the MStar Advanced Color Engine to ensure high-quality color accuracy. There is updated LED lighting to provide the best viewing experience for color, quality and brightness possible.
Next, the Leisure 3 can be connected to a wide variety of devices for viewing. It supports, gaming consoles (PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC, DVD, Blu-Ray), HDMI, USB-C,, and smartphone connections as well.
This mini projector can support anywhere from a 32-inch display all the way up to 170-inches. And, the recommended viewing distance is 4.9 feet to 16.4 feet with the sweet spot being 6.5 feet. Additionally, there are several adjustments for both keystone and focus to ensure you have the best picture possible.
As for sound, we highly recommend using an external sound source like a Samsung Sound Bar. However, the Leisure 3 Mini Projector does have built-in stereo speakers that you can use if you have no other options.
In addition, VANKYO uses a fan noise suppression system so that the fan noise is reduced and doesn’t disturb any viewing experiences. They use a new cooling system that uses a series of heat dispersion methods and heat pipes to cut in half the amount of fan cooling needed.

For built quality, VANKYO has a pretty good reputation. And, with the Leisure 3, they don’t dissapoint!
It seems to have a high-quality build, with no cheap-feeling plastics used. The lens seems to be fairly premium and the LED lamp is bright.
From initial impressions and some initial use, there seems to be no severe build quality issues. And, it should hopefully last for the foreseeable future!
When it comes to performance the VANKYO Leisure 3 Mini Projector is great! It definitely is a small little projector with a big performance.
It is extremely easy to plug-in and setup. And, once hooking it up to a laptop, computer or gaming system, the picture comes up right away. All the necessary hardware should be included for whatever you’re doing.
In addition, placing and focusing the Leisure 3 is also very simple. It doesn’t take a lot of time to unpack, plug-in and focus the projector and get right to watching whatever you want to watch!
The menu is easy to navigate and provides you easy-to-use instructions and settings. You can play around with the settings if you want, however it isn’t necessary to getting an adequate picture.
While VANKYO includes a built-in stereo set of speakers, we would highly recommend using your own. For the best experience, a good set of surround sound speakers, would work great! However, if you’re on a budget, then some 2.1 PC speakers can easily do the job!
So, in conclusion of the VANKYO Leisure 3 Mini Projector Review, we really like this product. It is extremely simple to carry around, extremely simple to setup and works as expected.
The only things you need (that aren’t included) are a good set of speakers, and a portable projector screen. If you want a good mobile projector setup for family use, camping, outdoor use, or home use, then the Leisure 3 is an awesome option!
It also comes with it’s own handy carrying case!
