Why is M5 the Best Choice for All?
I am experiencing one situation many times with most of the people whom I know. It is common whenever I have gone to meet them in their house either they are my friends or relatives they usually use to have TV screens at their homes.
Most of the people typically start their TV sets for me so that I will not get bored after chatting with them for a long time. In between some of them began to showing me their memorable captured moments or pictures.
Either on the smaller screens of their smartphones or tablets or any big screen available with them. Some people who do not have smart Television screens at their home need to use some tricks to play their favorite internet content on TV screens.
They either do it by connecting their display screens via smart media streaming devices or computer machine. Every time in such situation I remind of only about one thing that is a portable home entertainment projector.
If such people can have a nice compact projection machine at their home, then they do not need to depend on more than one gadgets or devices. Hence, it will be easy to watch or share any multimedia content that is available with them in different formats or on different mediums.

How is the Display Performance of M5 Projector?
If I have to say anything about the display performance of the M5 projector, then I have a few words! First of all, it can produce crystal-clear images both on walls and projection screens. The overall brightness that has been generated by the M5 projector works at its best at nights.
Also, on day hours you need to take care of the surrounding light present in the area where you are installing or using the projector device. It is good to have an ambient light inside a room that should be either of medium level or can be almost nil. It can help you to experience breathtaking contrast within the colors of the output projected pictures.
The source of the light, i.e. lamp of the M5 projector is based on an energy efficient LED. Hence, it makes sure that you do not need to pay high electricity bills even if you use it daily at your home or office.
One good thing that I appreciate about the M5 is the fact that it cannot only project images, videos in the output display screen. But the projector also works great to generate an enhanced screen of presentation slides. It is highly required for co-corporate users to show their work or ideas in front of a large number of people.

To deliver crisp and clear audio experience from a portable projector, the M5 consists of two internal speakers of 3W each. Now my review regarding the performance of the overall sound output from the stereo speakers of the M5 projector is imposing. Do you have any experience of using the M5 projector in the past? If the answer is a Yes then you will agree with me with the fact that the audio output of the device is impressive. The audio output of M5 can be comparable to many portable speaker systems available in the market at present.

Next, to lens, there is a significant net covering both the center and right area on the front face of the projector hardware. Under which internal speakers have been placed. So the projector can throw the audio output towards the front of the device or in other words towards the projection screen output.
Also at the top probably on the right side on the same surface of the machine, there is an IR receiver. It helps the projector to receive the signals and work with the supplied infrared remote controller.

My Review Regarding the Projector Machine
First of all, I would like to say that Houzetek M5 is an affordable projector at an economical price. The big benefit of using the device is its capability to display pictures with high brightness. Due to the portability of the projector hardware, it is effortless for a user to install it at one place either on a table, a stand or can fix it with a ceiling.
Also, the internal heat dissipation system works very well. The outer body of the M5 projector is at average room temperature even after using the device continuously for a long time. One disadvantage that I found in the M5 projector is the fact that its hardware produces some noise while working. It is not much louder and found out to be within 54 decibels under official tests.
It works well to produce sharp images with the vibrant color output. M5 can be a good alternative according to me for an expensive big sized TV screen. You can connect the projector with good quality external speakers having rich sound effects. This setup can help you to convert your room into a home theater easily.
M5: A Complete Multimedia Home Entertainment Projector
You can use the Houzetek M5 projection hardware as a standalone audio system whenever you are not in a mood to sit and watch any video.

Hence, it is pretty more considerable enough to cover a significant portion on the wall of a big room. Hence, the M5 projection device is a complete package to deliver a high level of enjoying rich multimedia resources at home.
