The CHiQ B5U 4K laser UST projector is an award winning home cinema offering high brightness with a very understated official 1900 ansi lumens. In fact this competes well against other 5000 ANSI lumen models and has an equivalent marketing lumens rating of 11,400. 

CHIQ B5U 4K Laser Projector

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 lumens and it’s massively understated in terms of its official brightness rating. 

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 

In terms of contrast ratio it compares well to products showing 3 million: 1 contrast despite a mere 15,000:1 advertised rating.

The 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 80” to 150” (or 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 (with ventilation / fan) and project up through the glass so it can be totally hidden from view.

Eye Protection

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 (MEMC) technology the B5U can eliminate motion blurring or image judder. It also has an input lag of around 45ms making it great for gaming and TV/Sports.

MEMC Processing

Sound Quality

Whilst most home cinema aficionados 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 B5U supports DTS and other audio connections- here is the list of supported audio decoding

MPEG1/2 Layer1/2, MP3, Dolby (AC-3), DTS, AAC, HE-AAC


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.

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.

Customer Reviews

Magnifique Review by FOUAD
J'ai eu l'occasion de voir ce qu'il vaut et de visionner du contenu chez un ami pour le tester. L'image est nette, le contraste est très même en journée. La colorimétrie est respectée (firmware). Quel pied ! Une belle immersion c'est juste énorme un grand écran avec une image nette. Conjuguée à la discrétion de l'appareil (db). Chapeau !

Un conseil, foncez il est top !
C'est certain je vais me l'offrir quand je pourrai

English Translated Version:

I had the opportunity to see if the B5U was worth it and to see it in action at a friend's house to test it. The image is sharp, the contrast is very good even during the day. The colour gamut is accurate (firmware). Fantastic! A beautiful immersive image which is just enormous on a big screen with a sharp image. Combined with how discreet the device is. Hats off! A piece of advice, go for it, it's a top projector! I'm definitely going to invest as soon as I can.

Absolutely no regrets Review by Kuldip
Having been a Samsung die hard for 18+ years I was very cautious in buying a TV product from a company that I knew nothing about, but have been pleasantly surprised. The product quality is great and the performance of the product is excellent. The UI / UX is not at polished as I have to expect but that is a minor issue and something that I can live with. The only changes I would make if I was developing a future variant of this product is to add an additional 1 or 2 HDMI interfaces (as two is not enough) and work on the product design so it is more cutting edge. Have now been using the product for over 2 weeks and absolutely no regrets.

The level of support from Personal Projectors is what convinced me to buy the product, as being a Yorkshire based company you get no nonsense and straight answers - which is what you would expect. So they were a big part of me making this purchase. So 5 out of 5 stars for them.

Blown away by the system, picture quality for TV, films and game play etc Review by fatherdamo2
After purchasing a cheap projector for my virtual Zwift cycling in the garage and using it for a few "film" nights indoors I found we all enjoyed the massive screen. I recently stumbled across 4k Laser UST projectors that could be used in daylight and spent many weeks accessing the pros and cons of replacing the TV in the living room with such a device.

Didn't want something I would have to use blackout blinds or wait until after dusk to use, something I could happily use throughout the day like a TV. It would be used with the Wii, the PS4 pro and Firestick 4k and BT Player.

Long story short, I've acquired a CHiq B5U 4K UST and also the CHiq S-FX series ALR 100" screen and am really impressed. From my research I did expect to be able to use it the day time but didn't expect the picture to be as good as it is with light flooding into my living room.

The only downside at the moment for me is the Dolby Vision being too dark. Need the ability to change the settings far more or just turn it off so I can fall back to 4k Ultra HD. To use DV at the moment I find you need it to be totally dark in the room. Watched some Mandalorian last night in DV and it was great. But I know I couldn't have watched it with normal room light levels, that's currently the issue with DV but I know that's being addressed in firmware but know its also a hardware limitation of the lumens of my system.

Overall I wouldn't go back to a TV, yes it's early days but am blown away by the system, picture quality for TV, films and game play etc. This might be in the budget range for some but for me it's at my top end range and find it money well spent.

Very Impressed, great Value Projector Review by William
I would recommend the Changhong B5U. I found that compared to other brands I have purchased before this one has a true 4K Image at a very competitive price.
