Note: The iRulu BL20 is no longer available, so we suggest checking out the CiBest Mini Projector.
The CiBest is compatible with multiple devices, including smartphones, iPads, Laptops, TV sticks, DVD, Xbox, PS4 and more. Plus, this compact projector can create a “big screen” experience up to 200″, and it has built-in speakers. We were amazed at how the low price was.
Are you looking for a low-cost projector that can pass as a decent home theater system? The iRulu BL20 Projector is worth looking at.
1. Bright, High Definition Picture Quality
First of all, for a unit priced under $200, it has a bright 2600 lumens. This will give you a brighter, clearer picture even if the room is not pitch black. Plus, the device displays HD picture quality and has 3D capability.
The high brightness factor gives you more versatility as to where and when you can watch movies, play games, etc.. It also provides a better viewing experience, especially if you use a wall to create a big screen.
2. Use the iRulu Projector in More Places, More Often
Secondly, the various slots (AV\VGA\USB\SD\HDMI\TV) let you connect multiple devices to the projector. Now, you don’t have to have a TV or DVD player.
Simply connect your desktop, notebook, tablet, WII, XBOX game machine, MP5 or digital camera to this projector, and you’re ready to go.
This is a big advantage if you want to occasionally watch movies in the backyard or in different rooms of the house. If you like portability, you’ll like this feature too because you aren’t limited to using your projector in only your home.
3. Long Life, Low Maintenance, Low Cost Projector Lamp
Third, you get a long lamp life with the iRulu BL20. The projector lamp is designed to last up to 20,000 hours (much higher than the average life of 2,000 hours), so you may never even need to replace the bulb as long as you own the machine.
TIP: To extend the life of the bulb even longer, turn off the projector after 3-4 hours of use to let it cool down for about 20-30 minutes. Then you can re-start it. For most people, this slight inconvenience is not an issue because they don’t have the projector running for longer than 3-4 hours as a time anyway.
4. Keystone Correction Built-In
Fourth, this projector has vertical keystone correction built in to it. This means that if you need to position the projector above or below the projector screen, you can easily adjust the image so that it is not skewed. Some cheaper models don’t include this feature, but to most people it’s important to have.
5. Convenient, Portable, Easy-to-Use
Fifth, this is a palm size projector that offers multiple benefits due to its compact size. Obviously, it is more portable. If you don’t plan on having your device hooked up in one spot all the time, this is a key benefit.
Furthermore, these smaller projectors enable you to project an image without having to be a long distance from the wall. For example, you can use the iRulu BL20 starting at only 4 feet from the screen or wall.
6. The iRulu BL20 Even Has Speakers
There’s no need to have external speakers nearby. This unit has 2 speakers. That said, if you are projecting the maximum image size and are using the projector in a large room or outdoors, you may not be satisfied with the sound quality. But you probably already knew that. =)
