This side USB is designed for users to plug the unplug the external device conveniently. If all interfaces are located at the back panel, it may be inconvenient to connect some external devices such as smartphones.
As for dimensions, Hisense 100L5G is relatively small. Hisense 100L5G measures 21.5” x 13.6” x 6.2” but Hisense 100L9G measures 24” x 13.6” x 6.1”. That is to say, Hisense 100L9G is relatively wider.
The two projectors are both DLP projectors with 4K resolution, but the two projectors are different in terms of brightness and HDR compatibility.
The brightness greatly determines the viewing performance of projectors under strong ambient light. The higher the brightness, the better image quality it delivers during the daytime.
Hisense 100L5G has 2,700 ANSI lumens while Hisense 100L9G has 3,000 ANSI lumens. That is to say, Hisense 100L9G is brighter than Hisense 100L5G.
Regarding HDR compatibility, Hisense 100L5G is compatible with HDR10, and Hisense 100L9G is compatible with HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision. Put simply, Hisense 100L9G doesn’t support HLG. HDR can enhance the image quality by improving the contrast and image dark details.

The audio performance is an essential part of home theater. Hisense 100L5G has built-in 30W speakers while Hisense 100L9G has built-in 40W speakers. In other words, Hisense 100L5G has more powerful speakers.
The two projectors both support Audio Return Channel eARC, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital, producing pleasant surround sound.
Another audio difference between Hisense 100L5G and Hisense 100L9G is the WiSA audio output. Hisense 100L9G supports WiSA but Hisense 100L5G doesn’t. WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio) is a new wireless audio specification for high-definition, multimedia, and low-latency audio.
The two projectors have no obvious differences in connectivity. As for wireless connectivity, they both support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. In terms of wired connectivity, they are both equipped with 3 HDMI interfaces, 2 USB interfaces, and various audio interfaces.
With these interfaces, we can connect the projector to game consoles, computers, TV sticks, TV boxes, and other external devices conveniently.
For gamers, the gaming performance is also a decisive point for a projector.
Hisense 100L5G has an input lag of 34.5ms while Hisense 100L9G has an input lag of 30ms. Hisense 100L5G has an ALLM mode ( Auto Low Latency mode ) while Hisense 100L9G doesn’t. ALLM automates the ideal latency settings for a smooth, lag-free, uninterrupted viewing and interaction experience. In many cases, it is known as Game Mode, which usually must be set manually and requires the player to navigate menus and settings and subsequently cut back to normal view.
The 100L9G model supports 4K/120Hz HDMI Inputs but the 100L5G doesn’t.
On the whole, Hisense 100L9G is better in gaming performance.
