The short-throw projector is a great option for almost any space, but is it the right one for yours?

Image Quality

The 120L5F comes with an X-Fusion laser for stunning 4K images. True 4K resolution ensures crisp details whether you are watching movies, TV shows, or playing games. You also get 4K upscaling, so content with a lower resolution is optimized to Ultra HD. HDR10 and HLG technologies further optimize image quality.

The only downside is the lumens rating. At 2,700, bright light will be a problem. You can compensate by closing the blinds or using black-out curtains.

True color technology ensures vivid, accurate colors. Blurry frames also aren’t a problem, thanks to Digital Micromirror and MEMC technologies. Live-action sports play smoothly without any frame interruption, it’s also a plus for gamers.

Ease of Installation and Set-Up

Imagine watching 120” images with only one foot of space between the projector and the screen. It’s all the space you need with the 120L5F. Its flexible installation allows you to set the projector up on a table or shelf. You won’t have to use a ceiling mount to center the images on the screen.

It also comes with vertical and horizontal keystone correction. Even first-time projector owners won’t have a problem centering images on the screen. The included 120” screen also comes with ambient light rejecting properties. It won’t counteract bright light, but it does make the setup a little easier.

Pros

  • 4K resolution
  • Onboard dual speakers
  • Vibrant colors
  • !20” screen included
  • Short-throw ratio

Cons

  • At 15W, the built-in speakers are not powerful enough to handle bass or fill a large area with sound

Audio Quality

With a built-in soundbar, you get impressive audio quality. The two 15W speakers come with DBX-TV technology. Audio is smooth and clear without distortion.

Bass is lacking with the speakers, but mid-range and dialogue are crystal clear. If you have a large area, you may want to add external speakers. Don’t worry, the projector comes with an optical audio output. This Hisense PX1 Pro review might be relevant to you.

Connectivity

This is where the 120L5F stands out. The built-in Android operating system supports most streaming apps. Watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more without having to search through the Google Play store.

Chromecast and screen mirroring are also built-in to the projector. Don’t want to use the remote? It also supports Alexa and Google Assistant. Four HDMI and two USB ports ensure you have all of the connectivity you need for your external devices.

Consumer Impressions

There are no complaints from consumers when it comes to image quality, except for the low lumens rating. The projector is a breeze to install. It is almost ready to go out of the box. Consumers also like the fact the 120LF is almost an entire entertainment system, and the 16.5ms input lag is acceptable for most gamers.

Conclusion

The Hisense 120L5F is an impressive projector (>>> Check current price on ProjectorScreen). It is almost an entire entertainment system in one convenient package. You get incredible image quality and acceptable input lag along with built-in speakers, and plenty of connectivity.
