Yes, a projector!
Irulu released the first of its kind affordable projector to enable its users to experience the thrill of a theater at their very own home. In 2016, the company released the Irulu BL20 1080p, and it became an instant hit with movie buffs around the world. The great part about this is that it only costs $70. This is super, super cheap for a projector.
Unlike the other projectors, the BL20 is lightweight, compact and portable. However, that does not mean that it does not offer the connectivity like the other projectors available in the market. The device comes with a Blu-Ray, DVD, VGA, game console, HDMI, and laptop connectors. Moreover, it also offers the choice to connect to USB drives and view movies that the flash drive holds.
The BL20 projects clean and sharp images on the screen with an EDTV resolution. The most important feature of the dominant device is its ability to scale image rather than cropping it. The other projectors in the same price segment crop the pictures reducing the details visible on the screen. But in case of the Irulu BL20 projector, this does not happen.
The BL20 uses an LED bulb that lasts longer and costs decidedly less compared to light bulbs giving it an edge over the other projectors in the segment. Furthermore, the projector comes packed with stereo speakers that’s usable when a home stereo system is not available.
The company offers four different smartphone models whose price ranges from $79 to $180. The phones are all Androids and work on 2GB RAM or above. Moreover, the cheapest phone offers a 13-megapixel camera with a 5.5-inch HD display and 16GB memory. All these features make the Irulu smartphones the best buy option in the category.
