A few years ago, some manufacturers began making laser projectors. They have been predicted to replace the regular TVs. Though they failed the mission, smart projectors are very popular. In order to help our readers to learn the differences between the laser TVs and smart projectors, we came in with a detailed article that is also considered to be a buyer’s guide. There may be an opinion that Xiaomi is the only Chinese manufacturer that comes with worthy projectors such as the first-gen Mi Laser TV, the Mijia projector, and the WEMAX One. Regardless of the fact how popular this kind of projectors is, there is a new trend. More and more companies are putting efforts into making portable projectors. One of the best models we have ever seen is the XGIMI CC Aurora Mini Portable Projector. But today we found out another projector that is going to win all the prizes. Moreover, the WANBO S5 is currently discounted and you can get your hands on it for only $289.99.
There are a few features we always pay attention when looking for a new projector. Let’s do the same for the WANBO S5. First, we wonder what the maximum size is it can project pictures. As for our protagonist, it’s 180 inches. But you have to put it 5m far from the wall. The minimum distance it can be at is 0.5m. But the projected picture will have a diagonal of 30 inches.
The second feature we should pay attention to is the brightness. The WANBO S5 comes with a 200 ANSI lumens brightness. Actually, this projector adopts a square pixel structure. Compared with the diamond pixel, the image edge of this technology is much less serrated. So the image is smoother and more natural. At the same time, the text is seen more clearly and sharply. The maximum resolution it can reach is 1080p.
Moreover, the WANBO S5 uses the diffused reflection imaging and non-direct light source. In other words, you can watch movies for a long time and your eyes won’t get tired at all. By the way, the eco-friendly LED light is promised to provide up to 30,000 hours of life.
This is a portable projector, which simply means you should be able to take it with you wherever you go and it should be able to provide good performance in any place. Fortunately, the WANBO S5 is packed with four built-in 2600mAh batteries that provide up to 3 hours of continues projection. At the same time, you can put it anywhere you want. And even if it is placed at an angle, you can adjust the picture easily due to the horizontal + vertical keystone correction option. It sports a dual-horn speaker and supports screen mirroring, power bank charging, and electric focus.
At last, the WANBO S5 is great in terms of connectivity. There are various ports and interfaces, including USB 2.0 port, HDMI port, TF card slot, DC port, audio port etc. And our protagonist also supports dual-band WiFi as well as Bluetooth 5.0.
