CHiQ B5U 4k UST

Has anyone heard about that projector?

Specs:
0.21 Throw Ratio (I guess same as xiaomi, but bigger case)
1900 Ansi Lumens (They say real Ansi and a comparison with the viewsonic 10-4k makes it believable)
Later 0.47 Chip than Xiaomi A300 with PixelShift of course
30-35 ms Input lag - and thats what makes this interesting
30db noise - since its bigger than xiaomis I guess they can use bigger fans


price around 2200 € / Eu Shipping / warranty / english menus


youtube/6y6lNmOTLNo showcase video


Any thoughts about that?

I have seen this B5U in action compare to Xiaomi 4k and noticed as below...

*Brighter than Xiaomi 4k
*I can still see the pixels on Xiaomi 4k but hardly on B5U.
*Definitely quieter than Xiaomi 4k.
*Much bigger unit than Xiaomi 4k.
*Have the extra MEMC function.
*No keystone adjustment on B5U.
*Better option for colour adjustment.

Others that might have better observation, kindly do share...

Likely because it is a no-name and will lack proper support?

What would we say? People have to actually have new info on it to talk about. Unless you've got new reviews, or plan on buying it to post info, it's just one product in the hypercycle of products coming out of China. 1 minute to ## months from now, there will be another product that will also be marginally better.

probably because it's hard to find a place to buy it. Could you share where you are buying it from?

Care to share what kind of noise they have. I can try to check on my unit.

Noise seems to be the main complain on the user forums, although it not clear if the posts are genuine or put out by the rivals.
If your unit is quiet, then nothing to worry about.

I had contact with the Reseller in UK... it seemed that he tried to convince me buying it. (2200 Euro)@ personalprojector.co.uk

He has send me Screenshots of his InputLag Measurements ~40-45ms which seemed proper and not faked. They offer warranty, 14 day trial etc so it seeeeemed trustworthy. But I still hesitated because of the upcoming CES and I dont like the overall look of the projector (toooo gray and cheap/big)


Quote from mail:
"Apologies thought we had already sent the lag info, here it is..“According to our test, the input lag for B5U is between 30 and 35ms which we think is good for most of the games. The way we test the input lag is to send the signal from a PC to both the projector and a gaming monitor (Asus VP228HE which has a confirmed response time of 1ms), then we start a stop watch from the PC, taken photos of the screen from both the projector and the gaming monitor to measure the difference so we can determine the input lag. Attached are the screen photos we taken, please check”.
Re Xiaomi Projector – not sure which model you are looking at but bear in mind Xiaomi does not offer the guarantees of Chiq B5U
  • Chiq has very understated lumens and contrast (unlike 99% of Chinese manufacturers – we;’ve seen them exaggerated by between 6 – 20 times in real lumens)
  • Chiq has a UK / EU warranty and is serviced here not in China with parts in the UK
  • a free Amazon Fire Stick with this product
  • 14 day money back guarantee

As B5U is a new product im not sure if it will have a video comparison against Xiaomi. The offer may well have expired in the time a video like that appears but you can see clearly on the video below what you are going to get anyway in all lighting conditions and you can return it if its not suitable."

-But the attached screenshot said more 40-45



I own the 1080p Xiaomi and all the projectors of 2019 just seem like slightly improved version, so im gonna wait a little more.

I have recently bought the b5u from personnel projectors and so far so good love the build quality and the picture is sharp I just sold a optoma hz40ust and that was 4000 lumens the b5u is rated at 1900 yet looks brighter. I also bought a alr screen as part of the deal for £2700 and was delivered next day customer support is also great as I had to ask a few questions and they responded within the hour also rang to speak. 2 year warranty and 5 year parts and no need to send to China as it is all done in the UK.
