Both of these projectors have great image quality and can support up to 4k resolution. The contrast ratio is 8.000:1 for Y30 and 10.000:1 for Y31, and we have to say it’s obvious who is a winner in this subcategory. If we compared these two with the majority of the other projectors, they would both be the winners. One of the main reasons for that is those monitors mostly have a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Brightness is a little bit better on Y31 than on Y30, but honestly– most people won’t even notice the difference. The aspect ratio for both of these projectors is 16:9, and that’s the last thing worth mentioning when it comes to image quality.



Image size is also worth mentioning, and once again Y31 beats Y30 by a 33% difference. Y31 can produce image sizes up to 300 inches, while the Y30 is limited to 200 inches. For the majority of people, an image size of 200 inches should be more than enough. In case you want to use the projector outside and need a bigger image size, we would suggest Y31. With great image quality and size, you will have a feeling you are at the cinema. In case you want to use your projector mostly indoors, both of them will ring the bell.

The audio experience is most definitely as important as the visual experience. Audio quality is one of the reasons people enjoy cinema much more than watching TV at home.

Our two candidates Y30 and Y31, have stereo dual stereo 3w speakers. YABER used solid Hi-FI speakers in both of these projectors, and for that – we are grateful.

One downside of the Y30 is the projector size, and because of it – the sound quality is sometimes not as good as the sound quality on the Y31. The great thing about both projectors is the presence of SRS ( sound retrieval system) which can greatly improve the sound quality. Y31 uses the potential of this system a bit better, and the sound produced with it is very crisp and accurate.  Yaber31 can support Dolby Digital, and because of that, it will produce a better surround sound experience than Yaber30.


4K Support is an amazing feature that 80% of projectors won’t be able to offer in the same price range, and that is simply impressive ( 4k is possible when connected to a PC only). Hats off to YABER for this feature. The native resolution of these projectors of 1080p is enough to beat their competitors since most of them won’t offer resolutions higher than 720p. We can see that YABER wanted to make a stand and show its competitors how to make a great projector for a decent price.

4D keystone correction is an amazing feature, other projectors won’t possess. This technology enables you to adjust the image vertically and horizontally with ± 50-degree correction, while other projectors won’t offer more than 10-20 degree adjustments.



Lamp life is not something you should worry about, because both of these offer a great amount of usage time. 100 000 usage hours is a huge number ( more than 10 years of continuous usage). We are sure only a few of you will use it this much.


To be completely honest, Y31 is the clear winner in most of the categories, but the differences between both projectors are not as big as many of us expected. For a similar price, you will get a better projector if you choose Y31. In case you prefer a projector with smaller dimensions or with a more oval than rectangular shape and some features Y31 offers are not that important to you – feel free to go with Y30. We would suggest Y31, as it offers a bit more, and it comes with a great price.

LED can last longer, and it requires less maintenance than LCD. With LCD you might have to replace the bulb a few times.
