Nowadays it is not so rare to see projectors for domestic use; although it is true that they do not compete against the new tech on TV’s, these devices are commonly relegated to offices and audiovisual rooms, however found a space in the most personal terrain. Perhaps for proposals such as the TENKER Q5, a small projector that has characteristics of large projectors, which we tend to see more often.
Before getting into knowing the equipment, highlight that this projector is designed to be used in low light environments. That is, blinds will have to be lowered if it is daytime; it is not about that type of projector that is even seen with ambient light rather oriented to company presentations, for example.
Obviously, it is not a pocket projector but it can fit perfectly inside a backpack, which makes it perfect to take it wherever you want to mount your particular cinema. That said, the equipment has some measures that do not reach 20 cm wide or 15 deep, emphasizing that “mini” aspect that carries flag. But this does not prevent him from being big inside, since he is capable of projecting from 37 to 100 inches, with a distance of 1.15 to 3 meters. The manufacturer recommends using it with 75 inches to 2 meters to get the best experience.
As you can see in the video below, the Q5’s box arrived a little beat but inside everything was fine, protected by foam. Inside you can find the projector, IR remote control, two power cables (for Europe or Americas), a classic audio-video cable and multilingual user manual.

Then, although its native resolution is 800 × 480, it can support Full HD videos input. Added to its 1500 lumens of brightness, illuminated by a LED bulb, make it a very good option to watch movies or play video games (connecting to your console, for example). It also has AV and VGA, including USB and microSD if you want to load the videos directly (it is compatible with MP4, MKV, VOB, MP3, FLAC and more). In this last case, we will control the reproduction by means of the included remote control.
If for whatever reason at the time of reproducing contents, these are distorted or out of focus, we can correct the vision through the wheels of the projector itself. On the other hand, highlight the computer’s fan, specially designed to dissipate heat without making too much noise, so not to distract while watching movies or playing.
Is kind of sad that my camera couldn’t get a better video quality, if you were here with me watching the video you could see by yourself how bright and nice images the Q5 can trow, and even for its low resolution the video look very well and crisp. To be honest this little projector is a great investment for an entry level projector.
Navigating the menu i found some options about tv channels, i think an advance model of this projector comes with a tv tuner, which is nice to have, this turn the Q5 in a true Tv replacement.
Who is the TENKER Q5 for? The TENKER Q5 is an ideal mini projector to enjoy at home. See photos, videos and movies in the darkest room of the house, given its 1500 lúmines. However, its light weight and Full HD resolution will allow you to enjoy any multimedia content.
