The Hisense 100L10E Laser TV is an HDR compatible 4K DLP ultra-short throw smart laser projector which currently retails for $6,999. It utilizes a single DLP (0.47” DMD) chip to reproduce a visible 4K UHD resolution (3,840 x 2,160). The unit’s laser light engine is rated to deliver at 3000 lumens for up to 25,000 hours.
Hisense markets their line-up of ultra-short throw laser projectors as Laser TVs. The 100L10E is part of the Hisense lineup of Laser TVs, which are designed to make front projection more accessible and appealing to a wider range of consumers. Hisense’s goal was to build a line of projectors that could replace a TV in an environment where a large TV just will not fit.
Since the 100L10E is designed to serve as a TV replacement, it includes most of the features that consumers would expect in a flat panel TV including a TV tuner, internal speakers with an external wireless subwoofer, and of course, smart features.
Like a Hisense Smart TV, the 100L10E can be voice controlled using the included voice remote control that has an Amazon Alexa built in. It also offers a wide variety of apps such as Netflix, YouTube, and Prime Video. Since the 100L10E is a DLP projector with a Laser light engine, it should deliver years of the maintenance free operation, like a flat panel TV would.
The term “Laser TV” has also been adopted by other manufacturers to describe projectors in this category. It is much easier than saying “4K DLP Ultra-Short Throw Laser Smart Projector”
