All thanks to my tech-savvy friends and contacts those who are always helping me to make this possible.
Coming back to my story, I already told you in one of my previous review post about my friend who is having a Hayabusa. Few weeks before he got a call! From our nearby Suzuki dealer to join their annual ride to celebrate the World’s Hayabusa Day.
Hence my friend wants to share this ultimate experience of riding his Busa with other Busas in our nearby town. And he also knows that I am always ready for a ride. Therefore he called me, and we have successfully joined it. Let me share with you all that it was an ultimate experience to enjoy a ride with a bunch of Hayabusas together.
I was Excited to Review the Wanbo S5 Projector,
I do not want to stretch my story longer here but let me tell you about when I saw the S5 smart ultra-thin Projector machine for the very first time. So on the same day before the ride, the Suzuki dealer has organized a small meeting. In which they showed us the journey of Hayabusa right from its launch till now and other details followed by a delicious lunch treat.
Hence in that presentation, they have taken the help of S5 multimedia LED projector device. The performance of the same projector has stunned me, and I am keener to get more details about the same further. Therefore, I planned to make it possible after our ride.
I have asked my friend that we will come back to that Suzuki showroom again. I wanted to review the S5 home theater stylish projector hardware without any disturbance. He agreed and finally it made my day.
Now it is the time to go back to the main topic for which we are here that is Wanbo S5 review. Thanks for your patience to be with me till now. Next, we will continue with exploring the further details and performance aspects of the S5 portable projector device. I promise you that I will be no more going to waste your time.
6. Not Harmful for Eyes:
Like some other projectors, S5 also has adopted diffused reflection imaging projection technology. Hence your eyes will be free from direct light emitted by the internal lamp of the projector. It is possible with an intelligent sensor present inside the S5 ultra-thin smart projector machine. Hence it is not only useful to make our eyes stay healthier for a long time but also suitable to use for the children.
7. Based on Advanced Technology:
There are many micro-mirrors presents inside the S5 projector device that is responsible for forming an output display. It is possible when the light passes on the prism system simultaneously. Via the micro-sized mirrors and matrices, those are available in different colors: red, blue, and green.
You can watch 3D pictures as well on the WanboS5 multimedia home cinema projector hardware having full effects. For homes, users can project a big display screen of size 109 inches. It is possible by placing the S5 ultra- thin cinema projector machine at a distance of 3 meters away from the output projection object.
Amendable Display Output,
The Wanbo S5 projector is based on electric focus and keystone correction functionalities. They both can add convenience for users of using the same at any time, anyplace, and in any condition. By the way, it can help you to adjust and project a clear picture as early as possible.
It is easy to adjust the angle of projection irrespective of the position of the projector hardware. All thanks to both vertical and horizontal keystone correction function in the S5 projector device. The display of the S5 home theater multimedia projection machine is based on the square pixel structure.
There is less serration in the image edge in it as compared to the diamond pixel projection technology. You can see brighter and clear text on the output display screen of the Wando S5 3D LED projector device. Also, the S5 smart projector is capable of reproducing natural colors in the picture output with smoother transitions.
8. Powerful Machine:
The S5 portable handy projector machine is backed by a 1.7 GHz Mstar 6A928 Cortex-A 17 processor chip. It is also having an inbuilt RAM of 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. A Mali-760 MP4 graphics processor also powers the S5 DLP LED projection system. To enjoy listening to an immersive sound the S5 projector is backed by two stereo speakers that can produce high fidelity audio output.
9. A Mesmerizing Audio System:
A significant advantage of buying the S5 projector for a user is the excellent quality of sound effects from its internal speakers. The hardware consists of in-built acoustics from the Harman/Kardon.
The front portion is featuring two 45mm speakers, and also there are two sub-woofers provided at the bottom of the projector device. I did not find any annoying sound even in the high volume from the complete audio system present inside the S5 projector. So I would say the fact that you will hardly need to combine any external speakers with S5 intelligent multimedia projector hardware.
Better to tell, you will scarcely need to enhance the overall sound output of the portable projector machine. Due to this feature, you can better use the S5 home cinema smart projection device as a standalone Bluetooth audio system. After all, it is almost like a personal portable speaker both from its design and sound.
How is the Design of the Projector Device?
The Wanbo S5 ultra-thin intelligent projector hardware weights to about 0.8 kilograms. Also the overall dimensions of the projector machine is about 14.00 x 14.00 x 9.70 cm / 5.51 x 5.51 x 3.82 inches. It has been measured as per the length x width x height of the projector hardware respectively. The S5 home theater multimedia projector machine is made up of polycarbonate, metal, and ABS plastic material.
At the front face of the S5 DLP office projector device, you can see a lens with a sliding cover at its upper left portion. A plus point for the device to save its lens form any scratches, dust or damages. Other than that everything is a mesh of tiny air holes or better to say net. I think this is the place where the dual horn speakers inside its hardware have been located to pass on the sound outside.
The base of the S5 LED smart projector machine has four small rest feet. They are necessary for any device to keep itself stable on a tabletop or any other flat surface without any hassle. At the top side of the S5 multimedia portable projector hardware, there is a big circular button provided at the center of the same face. It is helpful to turn the projector device ON and OFF.
Where are the Multimedia Connectivity Slots?
At the back of the WanboS5 smart ultra-thin projector machine there lies some interface ports on its upper area. Also, there are two big air holes on the same surface covered with the net to dissipate the internal residual heat from the same.
Let us look ahead on the available interface pots on the S5 home theater LED projector device in sequence. Therefore, we have a DC input port, TF card slot, HDMI port, USB 2.0, an Audio output port, a reset port, and a power indicator.
Both the sides of the S5 DLP portable projector are completely blank with a leather belt provided by the manufacturers in its design. There is a small button to hold the strap. Therefore, a user did not need to carry it all on its hands to transfer the hardware from one place to another. The best way is to hang the S5 multimedia home projection machine on anyone shoulder, and you are all set to rock.
Are there any Limitations of Wanbo S5 Projector?
Below I have listed some of the cons that I found on the S5 smart intelligent projector hardware;
- Under high ambient light or at daytime with window curtains open you will not get a brighter display output screen. The remote controller provided with the S5 DLP LED projector device is comfortable in use. All thanks to its compact size and reach of nearly every buttons with a single hand as a user always desiring.
- The WanboS5 intelligent cinema projector machine is based on 3LCD technology. Thus, the machine produces less sound to be identified while watching the movies or listening to the favorite tracks. However, the level of noise can be reduced further by using the S5 multimedia smart projector device in economical mode.
- By the way, I had quickly observed one more limitation of the S5 home theater portable projector hardware. It is the quality of display output is not that right on the wall as compared to projecting the same on a good build projection screen.
