  • Buying Projectors on Amazon: Buyer Beware of Top 10 Chinese Fakes

    Many of our customers have been asking us how is it possible that projectors listed on Amazon's Prime Deals or on Amazons Top 15 projectors are 1000 lumens yet only cost £50.

    2 shots

    We decided to investigate and have been monitoring this since September 2016. We purchased one of the Top 15 projectors on Amazon to see what was going on. We discovered a large amount of false trades descriptions which we have reported to Amazon. The list of these companies has since proliferated as Amazon allows fake reviews and people just look at the star ratings rather than the details so it always shows 4 stars or higher in the review despite alluring to the odd minor negative point in the reviews.

    Unfortunately its not in Amazons interests to do anything about these fake reviews or fake products with fake lumens as they get paid for every sale whether you return it or not. Even when you return it they still take a 7% to 15% commission - so its a Win Win for Amazon and a pain for you as the customer to be duped by false trades descriptions! We reported the issue at the beginning of the year and years later later the problem still exists despite numerous complaints to Amazon.

    We reviewed one of the best selling Amazon projector: Elephas Full Color 130" Portable LED "Pico" Projector. This review highlights the major flaws in all Amazon's best selling projectors and shows how many manufacturers are massively exaggerating features and specifications of these projectors. This review/guide will help you to avoid buying fake products and to understand how these companies selling on Amazon's marketplace (and even via Amazon Prime FBA) are breaching trading standards and are blatantly lying to customers.

    WE ALSO PROVIDE A LIST OF ALL THE GENUINE TRUSTWORTHY BRANDS IN THIS ARTICLE.

    Lumens Test: The biggest false description on Amazon

    The most important test is brightness so we compared the popular Pico Genie P55 (Update 2019: P55 Replaced by Pico Genie Periscope) which is a genuine 50 lumens to the Elephas Full Colour 130" which is stated as "1000 lumens". The Elephas is well priced at £54 on Amazon which is impossibly cheap for a projector of "1000" lumens.

    Below the image shows the brightness difference between the Pico Genie P55 (bottom image) and the Elephas (top image). If anything, the Pico Genie P55 is brighter and also has a better resolution. This is fairly shocking when you consider the Elphas is being listed as 20x brighter than the Pico Genie? Yes, 20 TIMES! Amazon’s top 15 projectors state they have 800-1500 lumens which is simply false.

    20160830_154009830_iOS

    The alarm bells should initially start ringing when you see a headline figure of 1000 lumens and a price of anything less than £400.

    To see what a real 1000 lumen projector looks like take a look at the Vivitek Qumi Q8  - its a world apart, its like watching a home cinema and the brightness looks like a printed graphic showing perfectly and clearly in normally lit conditions. Then take a look at a projector that does a real 500 or 650 lumens in this video and you will see instantly the difference.

    Video Showing a Genuine 500  - 650 Ansi Lumen Projectors

    [UPDATE DEC 2019] - the M550 has now been replaced by the M550 PLUS short throw projector.

    Unfortunately there is no limit to how much the lumens can be overstated by. This is shown clearly by the Anker Nebula Projector.

    Regularly quoted at a massive 3000 lumens online the Anker nebula actually has only 500 ansi lumens, putting it on par with the Qumi Q3. At it's rather large size not only is far from being a truly ultra portable projector, as both alternatives offer the same power from much smaller handheld devices.

    Ultra Short Throw (UST) Update (September 2018). There has been a growth in the ultra short throw market with many customers trying to find a home cinema product with very high lumens that can be put 6 inches away from the wall to provide a 100" screen. This has meant a surge in resellers and chinese suppliers claiming their products are ultra short throw and high brightness when often they are not even short throw nevermind ultra short throw and the brightness claims are ludicrous.

    Examples of fake ultra short throw projector descriptions include Wemax one by Xiaomi claiming a whopping lie of 7000 ansi lumens for only £1500. The give away that Wemax One by Xiaomi is a FAKE product is firstly the price point is way too low, especially for a laser projector. For example by comparison a 5000 lumen projector by Casio is almost £6000 so a genuine 7000  ansi lumen model would be a significantly higher price if it were genuine. The actual brightness of the Wemax One by Xiaomi projector could be as low as 1000 to 1500 ansi lumens but is expensive for its brightness levels simply because laser components are much more expensive than their LED counterparts

    Secondly, the giveaway that Wemax One is a fake description is when you see actual video footage of it at 7000 lumens the Wemax should be jumping off the walls in broad daylight with brightness when in ultra short throw but its a dull image as can be seen below. The (fake) brighter images displayed are always stills that are photoshopped so always try and look for a video of the product (often on the product pages themselves under the still images).

    [UPDATE DEC 2019] - However not all Chinese manufacturers overstate their lumens for example there are some such as Changhong's CHiQ Brand which massively understate their lumens. See the video below to see how the CHiQ compares next to the Viewsonic X10-4K. It’s clear that the CHiQ Brand understates all specifications from lumens all the way to contrast ratio and offer very high quality products.

    Wemax One Claiming 7000 Ansi Lumens Laser VERSUS a Vivitek DW763Z Laser 4000 lumen UST

    On paper, the Vivitek (2nd image) is stated at almost half the brightness at 4000 lumens of the Wemax One (7000 lumens) yet these images below showing both projectors in action (not photoshopped) show the Wemax is a fraction of the actual brightness of the Vivitek DW763Z-ust yet Wemax claims to be almost twice the brightness of the Vivitek projector. The Benq W1600UST is also worth looking at for a genuine low cost high brightness (3,300 ansi lumen) UST projector. A genuine 7000 ansi lumen projector would cost several thousand USD, Euros or pounds.

     Vivitek DH765Z Ultra Short Throw High Brightness Laser Projector

    Focus: Dont be limited to a fixed focus and fixed size image

    The Elephas and Amazon’s top 15 projectors often will have a fixed focus meaning it has to be an EXACT distance from the wall to be able to view it otherwise its out of focus. Thus it has to be exactly 1.5m away to create an image of 50-60”. If the Elephas is moved any closer to the projection surface, it is instantly out of focus so you just cant see it.

    In other words its useless if you want to put the projector anywhere other than EXACTLY 1.5m away from the wall as it will be out of focus.

    On some of the other top 15 Amazon projectors, if you have a small projection area you could end up with a screen size that is far too big for your projection space as well as it being out of focus.

    Pico Genie and other premium brand projectors can be focused as small as 15cm from the projection surface to create a tiny image or over >100" simply by moving them closer/further from the projected area.

    Check its got real DLP

    DLP is a premium image chip from Texas Instruments meaning your image quality will be viewable and far superior to the chinese versions listed on Amazon. It usually also means the projector itself is much smaller as can be seen with the Elephas versus the Pico Genie above.

    The costs of these DLP chips are high so as a rough guide anything advertised under £140 on Amazon is more than likely not going to have a real DLP chip inside. Its also likely to be a much larger size projector in terms of its dimensions (as can be seen in the photos above the Pico Genie is tiny in comparison to the Elephas).

    Size / Portability

    The genuine Pico Genie P55 (Update 2019: P55 Replaced by Pico Genie Periscope) is a fraction of the size of most of the top 15 projectors listed on Amazon and is more pocketable. Also the quality is not compromised because of its size as Pico Genie projectors use DLP rather than poor quality LCOS.

    As can be seen below the Elephas is almost 4x bigger than the Pico Genie.

    Weight – even with a battery this product is lighter and smaller than the majority of the top 15 projectors, it’s therefore ideal for quickly moving or taking away on your travels. Unlike the Elephas that would need a larger back to be transported.

    2 shots

    Battery

    All Pico Genie products include a battery as standard. The Pico Genie P55’s inbuilt battery will last for up to 2.5 hours. In comparison to Amazon’s top 15 which are 4x the size and do not have any battery at all. Pico Genie projectors are ultra portable and can be used anywhere.

    Fan Noise/usage & burning smells

    The Pico Genie P55 (Update 2019: P55 Replaced by Pico Genie Periscope) makes very little fan noise when in use and can be used for as long as required on mains power. Amazon’s top 15 projectors such as Elephas are incredibly noisy and kick out a lot of heat. They also state they should not be used for more than 3-4 hours at any one time. This also highlights a major safety concern. We used the Elephas for around 1-2 hours and it became very hot and produced some unusual burning smells.

    Build quality

    The Pico Genie P55 (Update 2019: P55 Replaced by Pico Genie Periscope) is built to a high quality and is highly robust. Aesthetically the P55 design is far superior to Amazon’s top 15.

    Beware Of Projector Brands Overstating their Specifications:

    Below is a list of brands overstating the trade descriptions, often quoting lumens at over 10 times higher or suggesting its Full HD or even 4k when its a much lower resolution, amongst others.

    This is by no means an exhaustive list of dodgy projector brands. The same companies are using different brand names which get changed regularly to avoid detection. There are many more out there but if the number of lumens appears too high for the price then, unless its a used item, then you have to question whether it is a genuine or a fake description.

    Overstated lumens at the Higher-end

    The Anker Nebula is quoted in most online specifications at a massive 3000  lumens
    • but only offers 500 ansi lumens

    The Viewsonic X10-4K offers 2,400 lumens but as seen on the Video HERE - it compares to less than 1900 ansi lumens on a Chiq B5U projector.

    SUMMARY:  Tips to Avoid Buying Fake Projectors from Amazon & Online 

    1. Claims its New < £80: If it's brand new and less than £80, don't bother. The projector is more than likely being way over sold by a Chinese company. LED projectors of any decent quality that are new with DLP and a minimum genuine lumens of 50 lumens start at £150 / €180 / $195
    2. Claims its New <£300 and claims over 600 lumens - it's quoting "Chinese marketing lumens" and maybe 10 or 20 times overstated and probably 50 lumens with no DLP and is fake
    3. DLP? - Ensure the projector has Texas Instruments DLP, this provides superior image quality and is the industry standard.
    4. States "use in a dark room" - If the projector has over 200 lumens and states "Use in a dark room", usually means its less than 50 lumens so avoid
    5. 1080p - this is one of the biggest lies - there are very few 1080p models out there and certainly none by any lesser known brands not listed above. The likelihood is that if you've not heard of the brand and its stating 1080p then its not 1080p. It should say "supports" 1080p ie supports Full HD but instead they just claim its Full HD when in fact its probably 2 or 3 grades down from that at VGA resolution - whats in a word eh !
    6. Catches Fire - If it says "it needs to be turned off after 2-4 hours", give it a miss. It is more than likely dangerous and prone to catching fire. It has been made very cheaply and so key safety processes can easily be missed.
    7. Common Sense - If it sounds too good to be true, it is!! Remember if you buy cheap you usually end up buying twice so just buy the product that's right for you first time around.

    CONCLUSION

    The old saying, BUY CHEAP BUY TWICE is true but if you need a quality brand at an affordable price then its worth checking out projector special offers or sales here for those genuine brands.

    If all of this talk of Ansi and marketing lumens have you stumped then we have got you covered, we have written a handy guide which will explain everything that you need to know here.

    How to get results with a complaint on Amazon in the UK

    We spent 14 months writing to Amazon to complain about fraudulent trades descriptions on Amazon as they continue to allow resellers, predominantly Chinese, to describe goods however they like without any resemblance to the truth. Amazon fail to do anything about it whatsoever so here are some steps you can take if you have similar problems.

    1. Try raising a case through seller central if you are a reseller or via Contact Us on Amazon as a consumer. If you get standard responses like we did for 14 months whereby its clear they are just not reading or listening to the complaint then go to step 2
    2. Report it to Trading Standards which has to be done via the Citizens Advice Bureau either by phone 03454 04 05 06 or Id recommend going to this online form at the bottom of their website. Get a case number
    3. Call the European Consumer Credit Center on 01268 886690 - Get a case number
    4. Write a letter to Amazon UK’s offices. This address is quite well hidden and hard to find so we’ve listed it below. Make sure you send it recorded delivery and inform them of the case numbers and the issues
    5. The main issue is Amazon’s HQ is outside the UK so they often like to pass the buck so the next step is to also report it to CMA - Competition & Markets Authority and this can be passed onto the equivalent trading standards bodies in the relevant countries – email for CMA general.enquiries@cma.gsi.gov.uk and again get a case number to pass onto Amazon

  • Get the best value 4K UHD Home Cinema Laser Projector available!

    Having a big TV up to 85" is great but sometimes you want to feel like you're going to the cinema with a 100" or 150" screen.

    The new breed of Ultra Short Throw projectors such as the Chiq B5U from Changhong allow you to discreetly hide away the projector up against the wall (with zero installation) but at the same time allow you to enjoy a bigger 4K cinematic experience than even the largest TV.  So you can achieve almost double the normal screen size at a reasonable price (its cheaper per inch than a standard TV) at only £1899.

    The CHIQ B5U is one of the most understated laser projectors with its ANSI Lumens and Contrast providing us with over double than what is stated on the specification, putting it as the best valued Home Cinema 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector on the market.

    Check out this video showing how understated the Chiq projector is and how bright it is in full daylight compared to it competitors.

    The video compares the Viewsonic X10 projector in real non-photo-shopped conditions in the daylight and dark. These days its really hard to compare like with like in projectors especially in terms of lumens and general image quality without side by side comparisons like this Viewsonic X10 versus Changhon Chiq B5U.

    Looking at the video it becomes clear the X10 is very overstated in terms of of lumens and contrast ratios as well as some other features. For example, the Changhong Chiq B5U shows only 1900 ansi lumens compared to 2400 on the Viewsonic X10.

    Its contrast ratio shows the Viewsonic X10 at 3 million to one versus only 150k to one on the Chiq B5U. Yet when looking at the image compared side by side, the video shows the Chiq B5U has a far superior image despite on paper looking like the B5U is nowhere near as high a spec as the X10.

    Its quite clear the Chiq has a far better image quality in terms of brightness and contrast / vibrancy of colour even in daylight. In fact in daylight its a superb spec thats worthy of comparable advertised lumens of 3500 - 5000 lumens such as the Optoma UHDZ65 UST.

    Image Quality & Ultra Short Throw

    The Chiq B5U is almost certain to give the WOW factor every time it is turned on with its gorgeous 4K Ultra HD Resolution.

    The B5Us Ultra Short Throw feature projects a MASSIVE screen size of up to 150” (bigger than any 4K TV) from just inches away from the wall, making it much simply and cheaper to install and hide away in a cabinet up against the wall.

    Images project in most lighting conditions and can achieve bright and clear images with the projectors high brightness of 1900 ANSI Lumens and contrast ratio of 15000:1. Also with the pure laser light source and wide colour gamut of ≥130% you can be guaranteed true and natural colours.

    B5U also features an Eye Protection function to avoid accidental damages to your eyes. With its built-in sensor, when someone gets too close to the lens, the projector will shut down the light source temporarily (5 seconds) to avoid eye damage.

    Get the best gaming experience when playing the latest titles such as Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare with the B5Us fast Refresh Frequency of 240Hz and an input lag of around 45ms.

    Be able to project in almost any lighting condition with an Ambient Light Rejection Screen and achieve bright and clear images with the projectors high brightness and understated 1900 ANSI Lumens and contrast ratio of 15000:1. With the pure laser light source and wide colour gamut of ≥130% you can be guaranteed true and natural colours.

    4K Laser Home Cinema Projector

    Sound Quality

    Whilst most home cinema afficionado's will connect external speakers to their projector, the Chiq B5U does actually have a better internal sound system than most projectors with its two 10 watt speakers built in.

    You can easily connect to external speakers via Bluetooth.

    Low noise is key for any projector and this one comes in at a relatively quite 30db helped by the laser light source which generally uses less power than a lamp projector.

    Connectivity

    The B5U offers full range of connection ports including Ethernet, coaxial output, audio output, VGA audio Input, VGA input, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x HDMI 2.0, built-in WiFi (5GHz/2.4GHz Dual Band) and built-in Bluetooth 5.0.

    Warranty & Lamp Life: Hassle Free

    It can be a worry when purchasing a new brand that you may not have heard of previously so its good to know that Changhong has been one of the top 3 brands of high quality TVs (and now projectors) and is a household name to millions across Asia.

    As a lamp-free laser projector, the B5U offers over 25,000 hours maintenance free lifespan.

    To back up the quality of the projectors, all Changhong projectors include a 2 year UK warranty as standard and a 5 year right to repair. The latter ensures spare parts are guaranteed to be kept for 5 years so it can always be repaired within that time.

    In addition, this is serviced in the UK so there is none of the usual hassle of returning goods to China, paying huge postage costs or arguing with Chinese sellers over warranties.

    Projection Distance & Smaller TV Cabinet

    The Chiq B5U is one of the shortest ultra short throw (UST) projectors on the market with 0.21 to 1 throw ratio instead of the usual 0.25 to 1.

    This shorter throw actually makes a big difference since the B5U projector requires the shortest distance to project the biggest screen eg B5U only requires 19.5cm for a 100" screen !

    This has the advantage of not requiring a large or specially made TV cabinet/table with a larger depth for the projector. Other UST projectors with longer throw ratio >0.21:1 may need at least 40cm distance to project 100" screen, plus the depth of the projector itself requiring a a TV cabinet with the depth of at least 90cm which most TV cabinets/tables do not offer.

    However, it also means you need a perfect flat wall or a flat projector screen to project the image, any slight curves on the wall will cause distortion as you currently got.

    Keystone Correction & Fixed Frame Screen Requirements

    Like most UST projectors, the Chiq B5U does not support keystone adjustment for a few very good reasons.

    1. No Keystone means improved image

    Keystone is managed by digitally altering or cutting a projected image. This creates a  lower image resolution, leaves the altered part of the image slightly out of focus and creates grey shadows around the cut images. When this is magnified to large sizes and in 4k the image quality reduction is highly noticeable so its better to not have keystone.

    1. Manual Correction is better for UST projectors

    As the distance between the projector and the wall/screen is so short you can more easily manually adjust keystone by adjusting the kickstand screws underneath the projector so a manual operation keeps the lens focus sharp.

    1. Uneven Walls are not cured with Keystone

    If your wall is uneven, no end of keystone correction will assist it. Keystone adjustment will only adjust certain points in most of the cases, just the four or eight points of the image rather than iron out the multiple uneven points on most walls.

    Hence the best option is always a tensioned or preferably fixed frame Ultra Short Throw Screen. If you’re on a budget then buy some rigid white MDF and mount onto that and cut it to size.

    Content: Amazon Fire Stick included

    Stream all your favourite movies/videos on your preferred streaming app straight from the projector with the Amazon Fire stick  included with B5U.

    Conclusion

    The ChangHong Chiq B5U has a wide range of features, connectivity and inbuilt TV content and is a perfect 4K projector for anyone looking to enhance their living space and enjoy a true cinematic experience at a very reasonable price .

    PLEASE NOTE: The projector cannot be used with a soft screen or on a normal wall (see impact on this video). Therefore this projector must be used with a flat rigid fixed frame screen (preferable) or high tensioned UST screen. For example try this Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) Fixed Frame Screen with Chiq B5U projector included

  • Experience The New Breed Of Portable Speaker Projectors

    Enjoy amazing sound quality when watching movies or listening to music with the new breed of portable speaker projectors! With projectors rapidly progressing in the visual department they have now started improving on the sound with high quality speakers being introduced into their models.

    The key differentiator with these new portable projectors is that they are much more capable of handling bass. This is really evident as soon as you pick up the projector, they feel really solid but not ultimately weighty so that they are still ultra portable.

    Prices for these projectors start at £199.

    Here are some of the latest releases of Speaker Projectors from Acer, Pico Genie and Vivitek.

    Android Portable Speaker Projectors

    Reviews

    What Mobile (https://new.whatmobile.net/review-qumi-z1v-projector):

    “First impressions are the Z1V is a fantastic bit of tech that provides a decent sounding speaker that is lightweight but also provides very good quality images or video footage when projected. I also found it very useful that I could use it plugged in or wireless if I wanted to use it outside.”
    “…looks great a grey fabric cloth wrapped around makes look smart.”
    “…great for viewing pictures as well as video. The multimedia player in this device really gives you an extension to any mobile device you might have.”
    “So overall, it’s a great device that allows you to use USB-C, Micro SD slot and HDMI ports for you to use any of your devices to showcase your video, audio or pictures.”
    “What makes this even better is you get up to 30,000 hours via the LED light source meaning you can use this device time and time again. Another benefit of using this projector is how easy it is to use.”
    “…it’s a great product so if you invest in this it will continue to entertain over and over again. Now what I personally loved this device for was to streaming the recent Cricket World Cup outside for the whole family to watch outside in my garden.”

  • Holen Sie sich den besten verfügbaren 4K-UHD-Heimkino-Laserprojektor!

    Ein großer Fernseher mit bis zu 85 Zoll ist großartig, aber manchmal möchten Sie das Gefühl haben, mit einem 100-Zoll- oder 150-Zoll-Bildschirm ins Kino zu gehen, ohne einen riesigen Fernseher in der Lounge zu haben.

    Mit der neuen Generation von Ultra Short Throw-Projektoren wie dem Chiq B5U von Changhong können Sie den Projektor diskret an der Wand verstecken (ohne Installation) und gleichzeitig ein größeres 4K-Kinoerlebnis genießen als mit dem größten FERNSEHER. So können Sie fast die doppelte normale Bildschirmgröße zu einem vernünftigen Preis (es ist pro Zoll billiger als ein Standard-TV) bei nur 1899 £ erreichen.

    Der CHIQ B5U ist mit seinen ANSI-Lumen und dem Kontrast einer der unauffälligsten Laserprojektoren. Er bietet mehr als das Doppelte der Angaben in der Spezifikation und ist damit der am besten bewertete Heimkino-4K-Ultra-Kurzdistanzprojektor auf dem Markt.

    Schauen Sie sich dieses Video an, das zeigt, wie zurückhaltend der Chiq-Projektor ist und wie hell er im Vergleich zu seinem nächsten Konkurrenten bei vollem Tageslicht ist

    Bildqualität & Ultra Short Throw

    Beim Chiq B5U wird der WOW-Faktor bei jedem Einschalten mit zauberhafter 4K Ultra HD-Auflösung garantiert.

    Die Ultra Short Throw-Funktion des B5U projiziert ein MASSIVES Bildschirmformat von bis zu 150 Zoll (größer als jedes 4K-Fernsehgerät), das nur wenige Zentimeter von der Wand entfernt ist. Dadurch ist die Installation und das Verstecken in einem Schrank an der Wand viel einfacher und kostengünstiger.

    Bilder werden bei den meisten Lichtverhältnissen projiziert und können mit der hohen Helligkeit des Projektors von 1900 ANSI-Lumen und dem Kontrastverhältnis von 15000: 1 helle und klare Bilder erzielen. Auch mit der reinen Laserlichtquelle und einem breiten Farbumfang von ≥130% können Sie echte und natürliche Farben garantieren.

    Der B5U verfügt außerdem über eine Augenschutzfunktion, um versehentliche Augenschäden zu vermeiden. Wenn jemand zu nahe an das Objektiv kommt, schaltet der Projektor mit seinem eingebauten Sensor die Lichtquelle vorübergehend aus (5 Sekunden), um Augenschäden zu vermeiden.

    Holen Sie sich das beste Spielerlebnis, wenn Sie die neuesten Titel wie Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare mit der schnellen Aktualisierungsfrequenz von 240 Hz und einer Eingangsverzögerung von nur 30/35 ms spielen.

    Mit einem Ambient Light Rejection Screen können Sie in nahezu allen Lichtverhältnissen projizieren und mit den Projektoren mit hoher Helligkeit und niedrigen 1900 ANSI-Lumen und einem Kontrastverhältnis von 15000: 1 helle und klare Bilder erzielen. Mit der reinen Laserlichtquelle und einem breiten Farbumfang von ≥130% können Sie echte und natürliche Farben garantieren.

    4K Laser Home Cinema Projector

    Tonqualität

    Während die meisten Heimkino-Fans externe Lautsprecher an ihren Projektor anschließen, verfügt der Chiq B5U tatsächlich über ein besseres internes Soundsystem als die meisten Projektoren mit zwei eingebauten 10-Watt-Lautsprechern.

    Sie können problemlos eine Verbindung zu externen Lautsprechern über Bluetooth herstellen.

    Geringes Rauschen ist der Schlüssel für jeden Projektor und dieser kommt mit relativ guten 30 dB, unterstützt durch die Laserlichtquelle, die im Allgemeinen weniger Strom verbraucht als ein Lampenprojektor.

    Konnektivität

    Das B5U bietet eine breite Palette an Anschlüssen, einschließlich Ethernet, Koaxialausgang, Audioausgang, VGA-Audioeingang, VGA-Eingang, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x HDMI 2.0, integriertem WiFi (5 GHz / 2,4 GHz Dual Band) und integriertem Bluetooth 5.0.

    Garantie und Lebensdauer der Lampe: Problemlos

    Wenn Sie eine neue Marke kaufen, von der Sie vielleicht vorher noch nichts gehört haben, kann es problematisch sein, zu wissen, dass Changhong zu den Top-3-Marken für hochwertige Fernsehgeräte (und jetzt auch für Projektoren) gehört und millionenfach bekannt ist Asien.

    Als lampenloser Laserprojektor bietet der B5U eine wartungsfreie Lebensdauer von über 25.000 Stunden.

    Um die Qualität der Projektoren zu sichern, bieten alle Changhong-Projektoren standardmäßig eine 2-jährige Garantie in Großbritannien und ein 5-jähriges Reparaturrecht. Letzteres garantiert, dass Ersatzteile 5 Jahre lang aufbewahrt werden, sodass sie immer innerhalb dieser Zeit repariert werden können.

    Darüber hinaus wird dies in Großbritannien gewartet, so dass es nicht zu den üblichen Problemen bei der Rücksendung von Waren nach China kommt, wenn enorme Versandkosten anfallen oder mit chinesischen Verkäufern über Garantien gestritten wird.

    Probieren Sie es vor dem Kauf mit unserer 14-tägigen Geld-zurück-Garantie aus.

    Inhalt: Amazon Fire Stick enthalten

    Streamen Sie alle Ihre Lieblingsfilme / -videos mit Ihrer bevorzugten Streaming-App direkt vom Projektor mit dem im Lieferumfang von B5U enthaltenen Amazon Fire-Stick.

    Fazit

    Der ChangHong Chiq B5U verfügt über eine breite Palette an Funktionen, Konnektivität und eingebauten TV-Inhalten und ist ein perfekter 4K-Projektor für alle, die ihren Wohnraum aufwerten und ein echtes Kinoerlebnis zu einem sehr günstigen Preis genießen möchten.

    All these LED DLP personal projectors are lightweight and ultra-portable unlike the projectors of old. The next most important aspect is the lumens and these 5 models range from 200 to 1000 ansi lumens (1200 to 6000 marketing lumens).

    Increasingly Android operating systems (OS) onboard are becoming more popular and that's not just for the ability to watch a plethora of entertainment like Netflix, Youtube or iPlayer. Android on-board also means business or education apps such as PDF readers, powerpoint and presentation tools are supported.
