ASUS B1M: It’s small, but it’s HD

Despite the advancement of TVs to much longer diagonals, 3D, OLED and Smart technology, and projectors are still the synonym for enjoying movies and sports, of course, not counting the cinemas and stadiums. Well-standing bars that care about their reputation still announce that they have the projectors shortly before big matches. Nobody has probably seen the bars inviting customers to watch the match on a 55” 3D OLED SMART TV. Asus has several very similar projectors that fall into category of small, mobile and, most importantly, very interesting devices. This time, we’ve tested the model B1M.

Asus Orion Pro and Echelon: Comfort comes first

When it comes to products of ASUS, we can safely assume that it will be of top quality and that its technical capabilities will far exceed those of its competitors. That already became a standard for motherboards and video cards, but ASUS doesn’t lag behind in other areas and that’s the reason why we’ve seen great notebooks, displays, networking equipment… In the last few years the company’s name became a synonym for quality sound and next to these fantastic sound cards are also headphones of no less superior characteristics. After the exquisite Vulcan PRO, ASUS made a new mascot, Orion PRO, which also belongs to the ROG brand of products, specially made for gamers.

Jabra Revo: Takeaway Hi-Fi

Jabra has definitely stirred up the hive at this year’s MWC (Mobile World Congress) by presenting three new headphone models. Jabra Vox are typical earphones, aiming to replace the headsets bundled with modern smartphones. The other two models, Revo and Revo Wireless, are similar in nature, with the Wireless version containing support for Bluetooth and NFC. We got the standard Revo model for testing, addressing those who prefer the good old cable connection, for either higher sound quality, lower price or reduced power consumption.

Review: ASUS Vulcan Pro

After their first venture into the gaming headset market last year, ASUS has lain low, with no other models in the pipeline. This was perceived as peculiar behaviour, as Vulcan was greeted very warmly by media on the whole, but it seems that there was simply no need to reinvent the wheel and better to simply keep the existing one in stock. Vulcan was the first headset to bring active noise cancelling into the gaming market, which was sufficient to make this headset special, coupled with the high-quality drivers and microphone. Still, ASUS didn’t deem it right to rest on its laurels, presenting the PRO version of the same headset, packing a couple of new features.

ASUS P1: Small, light and portable

tumb

Although projectors are hardly what ASUS is famed for, it seems that this Taiwanese company has managed to break into the said market with an excellent product. The latter, named P1, is an ultraportable projector with a sufficient number of features to stand out from the crowd, and it’s particularly noticeable for its extremely small dimensions and compactness. It’s the winner of this year’s gold iF award for design, which guarantees high quality in terms of finish, choice of materials, environmental impact, ergonomics, and of course, functionality, with just some of its features being mercury-free Eco-LED lighting and a resolution of 1280x800 (HD Ready).

The P1 projector has the so-called short-throw projection, which enables image display of 40” with a distance of just one metre, with the projector being fully functional merely five seconds after it’s been turned on. Read on to see how ASUS P1 played through our tests and in real-world conditions.

ASUS O!Play: Gigabit on a TV

thumb

“Smart TV”, or in its popular spelling, SmartTV, is something that the leading LCD and plasma manufacturers seem to be emphasising pretty heavily lately, in parallel with the omnipresent 3D technology. Depending on the particular manufacturer, SmartTV entails (wireless) internet and LAN capabilities, playback of a large number of video and audio formats, as well as images, the presence of at least one USB port, and the capability of installing applications from the manufacturer’s online store/database.

Sapphire Mini Projector 101: A Battery-powered Cinema

Sapphire_Mini_intro2.jpgImageThe breakthroughs in LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology helped create a category of pico projectors. Cameras, mobile phones and similar devices containing a tiny projector have already appeared on the market, but as it usually happens, their price and “child diseases” will make us carry around a separate device for some time. Sapphire Mini Projector 101, for instance.

LG HS201: A Compact LED Projector

LGHS201_intro2.jpgImageSeveral months ago, we had the chance to make friends with the tiny Benq Joybee projector, which left a most positive impression on us. The fact that LG has decided to present the portable projector market with their own solution just months after even setting foot in it only goes to prove that it’s a market niche with potential. Welcome the model HS201.

NextBase 3-in-1: TV in the Car

Nextbase_DVD_intro2.jpgImageNextBase may not be a familiar name to some of our readers, but it’s considered one of the most reputable portable DVD player manufacturers worldwide. The fact that Porsche uses NextBase OEM players as a factory-default solution for some of its models, and that Setra and a few additional touring bus manufacturers use NextBase solutions for distributing film content for long bus journeys, speaks volumes about their quality. And since holidays and very interesting sports events draw nearer, a combination of a DVD player for the kids and a TV receiver for adults may very well be a perfect combo for trips.
