In a world of cutting-edge home entertainment technology, two brothers will face off head to head in the ultimate projector showdown. Today the triple laser Hisense L9H and single laser Hisense L5H ultra short throw projectors take center stage in this one on one battle. In this comparison, we're going to delve into the immersive realm of USTs, also known as laser TVs.

These innovative devices redefine the at-home movie watching experience by delivering stunning visuals with minimal space requirements. Join us as we explore the features and differences between the Hisense L5H and L9H, showcasing the epitome of next-level projection technology.

Hisense L9H

Top of the line projectors only stay that way for a short period of time. In the world of technology, new advancements happen often and if you can't keep upgrading and innovating, your top-of-the-line products will fall out of favor quickly. That's why Hisense unveiled their brand new TriChroma Hisense L9H, which is the upgraded version of the Hisense L9G.

Like it's predecessor, the Hisense L9H is a true RGB triple laser projectors with bright vivid colors and buttery smooth motion handling. Unlike their other triple laser UST, the Hisense PX2-Pro which is designed as more of a home theater projector, the Hisense L9H is a real bright room projector offering 3000 lumens and comes bundled with either a 100 or 120 inch UST screen.

Hisense L5H

Like its big brother, the Hisense L5H is a true laser TV that comes bundled with your choice of either a 100 or 120 inch ambient light rejecting UST screen. While its single laser design lacks some of the power of the L9H, the Hisense L5H UST projection system still packs quite a punch and at a more affordable price point.

Hisense L9H Vs Hisense L5H

According to our poll of one of our sales reps, absolutely everyone on the internet is dying to see these two bright room projectors square off in this family feud.

Our projection experts have poured over the data and spent many hours watching footage on each of these projectors to help you pick which one is the right choice to have in your house.

So, which projector will win, the Hisense L5H or the Hisense L9H? Let's find out!

0.25:1

Both models have the same throw distance.

The triple laser projection technology found on the Hisense L9H gives it a big edge over the Hisense L5H.

Color

113% DCI-P3

The Hisense L9H drastically outpaces the L5H thanks to the RGB triple laser light engine giving the L9H the ability to offer a significantly wider color gamut.

Contrast Ratio

3000:1

3000:1

According to Hisense both of these laser TVs produce the same incredible contrast levels.

Image Size

Both of these Hisense USTs comes bundled with a screen and is limited to either a 100 inch screen size on the 100L9H or 120 inches on the 120L9H and 100 inches with the 100L5H or 120 inches on the 120L5H.

ALR Projector Screen

Bundled With Either A 100" Daylight Screen Or 120" UST Screen

One of the best values of the Hisense L9G and L5H is that they are sold bundled with an ambient light rejection projector screen.

Input Lag

The L9H laser TV has the very slightest of edges when it comes to input lag but this difference is practically unnoticeable.

Audio

Both have powerful built-in soundbars that are pretty much on par with each other.

Price

$3,797.97$2,997.97

So Which UST Is Better, The Hisense L9H Or The Epson LS800?

Most of these UST shootouts can be pretty tough to declare a winner. This one however was not one of those. Comparing the single laser L5H and triple laser L9H is like comparing a Honda with a Corvette. Both are great cars but one is objectively going to perform better than the other.

So, when choosing the better ultra short throw projector for your home between the Hisense L5H vs. Hisense L9H the winner of this showdown is the………

Hisense L9H

Why You Should Buy The Hisense L9H

Head to head the picture quality on the Hisense L9H is going to beat the Hisense L5H every time. Thanks to it's Trichroma RGB laser light source, the L9H is brighter and offers a significantly wider color gamut. This really shows up when you're watching content. The picture on the L9H is significantly more vibrant, especially when you're enjoying TV and movies with the lights on. Those extra 300 lumens of brightness do make a difference in a well lit room.

Outside of that aspect however these two projectors are pretty similar. Both have sharp detailed pictures with great motion handling. Both have decently low lag times for gaming. And both USTs support Dolby Vision and use the Google TV OS that includes a native Netflix app.

Outside of the light source the main difference is the physical aesthetic of the projectors casing. We prefer the sleek rounded design of the L9H over the boxier L5H. But this is fully subjective.

If the room where you're planning to use your projector has large windows, and you're ok with a 100 inch screen size, the Hisense 100L9H may be the projector for you to choose. This is because the 100L9H comes with their Daylight screen. This is a Fresnel projector screen, as opposed to a more common lenticular screen like you'd find on most UST cinema screens, that rejects light coming from the ceiling and from the sides so you get a brighter image during the day. Plus this wall hanging screen comes pre-assembled.

Why You Should Buy The Hisense L5H

The biggest advantage the Hisense L5H has over the L9H is the price. With a retail price that's $1700 less, the L5H is a tremendous bargain if lower cost is your most important concern.

If you prefer the boxier build of the L5H, as some do, that also might help give it an edge.
