A cost effective printer?
There’s a room in my house that I like to
call the “gym room”, where gym equipment amassed over the years, albeit through
good intentions, has gone to rest.
On rare occasions, when the moon is in the
second house of Saturn, I sometimes stop procrastinating and begin to formulate
yet another exercise schedule.
B1M Ultra-Bright Wireless LED Projector
This entails going into the room and
glancing around at which fortunate piece of equipment would win the prize of
getting me back into shape.
Looking around and not being able to decide
on which exercise gadget to use, my eyes eventually fell on the large open back
wall of the room, it was empty, void of any pictures or paintings; just a big,
open, clear, white wall.
B1M comes in an easy carry bag and has physical dimensions of 175 x 44.5 x
139mm, giving it the approximate footprint of a DVD case
“What a perfect space to project an image”
I thought and hurried back downstairs to collect Asus’ newly released B1M
Ultra-Bright Wireless LED Projector.
The B1M comes in an easy carry bag and has
physical dimensions of 175 x 44.5 x 139mm, giving it the approximate footprint
of a DVD case.
This, coupled with a weight of just 900g,
makes this projector extremely portable.
Although it has various connection options,
such as an HDMI port, D-sub and Composite Video, its portability has been
greatly advanced by Asus’ Wi-Fi projection technology, which features a small
Wi-Fi adapter allowing the B1M to wirelessly connect to laptops, PCs, Android
and iOS devices, thus allowing media to be streamed to the device without the
need of cables.
short-throw lens is designed to project large vibrant images with 100% NTSC
color saturation at 1280 x 800 resolutions at shorter distances and with a 700
Additionally the B1M features a USB Port
and an SD card slot which allows direct projections from a USB storage device
or a memory card and has onboard file format support for Microsoft Office
documents and PDFs.
Its short-throw lens is designed to project
large vibrant images with 100% NTSC color saturation at 1280 x 800 resolution
at shorter distances and with a 700 lumen, mercury-free Eco-LED, 30 000-hour
lifespan light source operating at low temperatures for instant start up and
shut down times, makes the B1M ideal for presenting in small spaces and
increases the lifespan of the projector. Its two level kickstand design makes
this projector quicker to set up than other screw-adjusted feet projectors and
its auto-keystone correction automatically adjusts the projector to ensure a
truer rectangular image.
Built into the projector and using Asus’
SonicMaster audio technology are two 2 Watt stereo speakers, ensuring clear
sound and negating the use of external speakers.
Asus have once again produced another
masterpiece; their integration of high end features in a compact and portable
design, with ease of use and near flawless functionality, seems to be a
strength that will always keep this company at the forefront of their game.
I would also like to thank Asus for
allowing me to find another use for my “gym room” as astrologically I saw
somewhere that the moon will only be back in Saturn rising in another three
years… so up until then I am thinking... “Movie room?”
