VANKYO Leisure 510 Projector Review
The VANKYO Leisure 510 Projector Review is possible due to affiliates and readers, thank you!
We have taken a look at what VANKYO has to offer as far as mini projectors are concerned. But, now we’re going to look at one of their flagship projectors, the Leisure 510.
This projector adds a few features over the Leisure 3 mini projector and, has some updates to existing stuff as well. So, in this review, we’ll be taking a look at the features, build quality, how it performs, along with our thoughts on purchasing!
Firstly, this projector is 1080p full HD (we’ll get into more features later). But, this means that you get a 16:9 aspect ratio of 1920 by 1080. With a projection screen, the digital projector shoots an image via a source of light. The advantage to this is that you can get significantly larger images compared to traditional TV’s. As well as potentially brighter, more color accurate, and smoother images (source).
Starting off with the features of the Leisure 510 1080p Projector. First, and most obvious, is it’s 1080p resolution. This gives you a a full HD picture and ensures that pretty much all content is the highest quality it can be.
Additionally, with the 510PW model you can 5G WiFi! This is the newest technology in wireless connectivity and should last you for several years to come. You should get fast internet on your projector so you can easily stream pretty much anything without issues.
When projecting, you can use up to a 200-inch screen. And with the zoom function, you should be able to fit to whatever size screen you need to! With that you can also use the 60 degree electronic keystone correction. This allows you to really narrow in and focus for whatever you’re projecting on.
There is also built-in software that allows you to directly view typical office files. These might include presentations, images, PDF’s, or text files.
Finally, for ports you have 2 HMDI’s, USB 2.0, 5V out (to power small devices), VGA, AV, audio out, and SD card slot.
For build quality, the VANYKO Leisure 510 Projector is of a fairly premium build. We saw no issues with any of the constructed components. The plastics are typical and lens seems to have no issues. Although the built-in program can be a bit slow, it’s very unlikely that many people will use it. Overall, a premium high-quality feeling build.
Starting off with performance is the simplicity of setting it up. All you have to do is unpack it from the shipping box, plug in the power cord and turn it on. You can then choose to connect to your WiFi, or hook up to whatever device you decide to use. Additionally, you can use your iPhone or Android phone to cast directly to the Leisure 510.
As far as picture quality is concerned, when using the 1080p projector on a 150-inch screen it performed very well. Colors are fairly accurate and you can adjust them with the included settings. The picture is also fairly bright, although it isn’t among the brightest we’ve seen, it is bright enough with the lights off.
For sound, we would highly recommend using an external audio source, such as a soundbar. The internal speakers aren’t the best quality, however if that’s all you have they will definitely get the job done.
In conclusion, is the VANKYO Leisure 510 Projector worth the price? If you’re looking for a moderately priced 1080p projection, then absolutely. This is an excellent value for the money and unless you’re comparing it to very expensive projectors, then you’ll be very impressed.
VANKYO includes a carrying bag in the box along with pretty much all of the necessary cords. As we mentioned before, you can easily hook up your phone or whatever other device you want to stream with to the Leisure 510. And, for most people this is all they need.
When it comes to projectors, most people are just going to want something that’s simple to set up. And, they are able to show it to their friends and family for a sports game or movie. You probably don’t need anything more advanced than what the Leisure 510 will provide.
However, if you are setting up the ultimate home theater system, then you should check out the BenQ HT2150ST vs Optoma GT1080Darbee Projectors!
