Outline

It may be the smallest and the most convenient projector in the world that offers 4K resolution. Ordinary projectors in the shape of a flat cube must be installed on a table or a tripod, which is a very complex and troublesome process. Much improvement has been made on the installation process for HU80 through a vertical form factor and a reflector. Installation is completed just by placing the product on the floor, and videos in 4K can be projected onto a wall in front or onto a ceiling through the reflector. Also the reflector protects the lens when the projector is not in use.

Evaluation

It goes without saying that the casing design itself is beautiful, but the extent of the projector's practicality is astounding. It can be carried in one hand, and the equipment necessary for projecting, including the power cable, fit into the casing. It can project on the ceiling or wall, and has speedy keystone correction and focus adjustment to correspond. Above all, the brightness of the screen was surprising. It is a product with a high level of completeness that caters to a wide range of needs for flexible projection.
