The brand new CHIQ B5U 4K UHD Ultra-Short Throw DLP Laser Projector comes a with Free Amazon 4K Fire TV Stick and is one of the best value high quality laser projectors on the market today.
Image Quality & Ultra Short Throw
The contrast and overall image quality really stand out against the competition due to its impressive real life 4K Ultra HD image.
Whilst the lumens are quoted at 1900 ansi lumens, when compared with equivalent premium brand competitor products it compares well to 3500 to 5000 lumen products and is massively understated in terms of its official brightness rating.
In terms of contrast ratio it compares well to products showing 3 million : 1 contrast despite a mere 15,000:1 advertised rating.
Also its pure laser light source and wide colour gamut of ≥130% guarantees true and natural colours.
Use the B5Us Ultra Short Throw feature to project a MASSIVE screen size of up to 150” (bigger than any 4K TV) from just inches away from the wall, making it much simpler and easier to install. It’s easy to enclose in a glass topped cabinet and project up through the glass so it can be totally hidden from view.
Check out this video showing how understated the Chiq projector is and how bright it is in full daylight compared to its closest competitor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82HAyeBgaM0
The B5U also features an Eye Protection function to avoid accidental damage to your eyes. With its built-in sensor the projector will shut down the light source temporarily (5 seconds) if it detects anybody moving in front or too close to the lens.
Perfect for Gaming and Sports (MEMC Processing)
With Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation technology the B5U can eliminate motion blurring or image judder. It also has a fast 240Hz refresh frequency and an input lag of around 45ms making it great for gaming and TV/Sports.
Whilst most home cinema afficionado's will connect external speakers to their projector, the Chiq B5U does actually have a decent internal sound system with its two 10 watt in-built speakers.
Bluetooth connectivity for audio is also available.
Low noise is key for any projector and this one comes in at a relatively quite 35db helped by the laser light source which generally uses less power than rival lamp projectors.
The Chiq B5U projector offers a 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.
It also comes with a free Amazon Fire Stick for great TV content.
Warranty & Lamp Life: Hassle Free
As a lamp-free laser projector, the B5U has a maintenance-free 25,000 hour lifespan.
All Chiq 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 ensuring hassle free returns without the need to return goods to China, pay huge return postage costs or argue with Chinese sellers over warranties.
Stream all your favourite movies/videos on your preferred streaming app straight from the projector with the Amazon Fire stick (included when you purchase the B5U).
