Top excellent Home theater projectors of 2019

The projector can be divided into three main categories: Home Cinema, Business and Laptops. In this article, we will focus on home theater projectors who are ideal for the following games or watching a movie or netflix series.

We like the most about these types of devices that they provide an image as a large television, although it is true that the biggest disadvantage is that the quality of the image is not as good.

But if the fact is that they occupy a little bit and some of them are more affordable than a high quality television, then you are absolutely convinced, do not miss our classification of the best projector. We also tell what to look for before buying one


> Buying guide for home theater projectors

Before you get a projector for your home, there are several factors that you should keep in mind: price, resolution, image positioning features (zoom, trepozidal correction …), shine and technique.

> 1. How much are you willing to pay for a projector?

Quality projectors are not a cheap device, but the truth is that their features are priced. We recommend that you do not bet on a cheap model that you will easily find on Amazon, because its quality will leave a lot to be desired.

> 2. How much resolution should a good projector have?

Some high quality projectors have a resolution of 1280 x 720, but we recommend betting at at least 1920 x 1080 (full HD) resolution, because the pixels of the image will fade while projecting on the wall.

4K resolution, 3840 x 2160 pixels, is very common among affordable TVs, but it is not yet among the projectors. Those who have this resolution, their price is above € 5,000.

This means that the most affordable projectors do not come with a resolution of these features, but in DLP technology known as True 4K, creates a kind of 4K image through a pixel transfer process.

It is not similar to the interpolation, which the camera makers use to enlarge the image. With pixel shifting, the image is not fast with the original 4K but better with full HD.

> 3. What image features do you need?

It is highly recommended to choose a projector model in which you can rotate the lens, because it will allow you to move the projected image horizontally and / or vertically and on any wall of the room, not necessarily the front Be it

Trepozoidal correction, on the other hand, would be useful if you think you would like to digitally replace the image to fix your presence. Of course, keep in mind that the likelihood of doing this is more than likely to reduce the quality of the image.

Most projectors also have zoom, which offers flexibility when placing the device more or less close to the screen. If your home cinema is in a small room, you will be interested in short-throw projectors.

> 4. What technology do you prefer: LCD, DLP or LED?

It is equally important to know the differences between the main technologies used in the manufacture of projectors: LCD, DLP or LED. LCD projectors, for example, are usually the largest but not all include rotating lenses.

On the other hand, these are found in DLP models. These projectors have better contrast and more vibrant colors, but sometimes suffer from the so-called “rainbow effect”, which can be somewhat annoying for readers with sensitive eyes.

On the other hand, LED projectors have made these devices more affordable for the general public. In any case, remember that this type of technical specifications will determine the quality of the image they can offer.

In addition, it is also advisable to ensure that they include motion interpolation to prevent objects that move on the screen from appearing choppy. This feature adds extra frames automatically and manages to avoid it.

> 5. How bright are the projectors?

Projectors designed to be used at home do not usually have as much brightness as in office models since the former are intended for use in dark rooms.

You should make sure that your home theater projector has a minimum brightness of 1,600 ANSI lumens, as this will allow you to watch a movie with at least one light on in the room.

If you have 1,000 ANSI lumens, you will only get to see the screen well if you are completely in the dark. However, if you want to enjoy a football game in broad daylight and with the curtains open, you should look at models with about 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Comparison: Which is the excellent projector of 2019?

 1. Optoma UHD300X
2. ViewSonic PX747-4K
3. Epson EH-TW650
4. Mars II by Nebula Anker
5. BenQ TK800

 1. Optoma UHD300X

Although the cheapest option is not in the list, the Optoma UHD 300 X projector still has a fair price if we consider all the features which it provides and the high prices of other equipment of similar quality.

This is a better value for money than ViewSonic PX747 because its dynamic image provides good brightness and good range of colors. The result will be an excellent cinematic experience at home, with HDR movies on 100 inches of screen.

Optoma offers many types of projectors for all uses, but it allows you to enjoy sharp images in contrast to color and depth, making it ideal for lovers of movies, games or sports.

You can supplement the experience with a projector screen and with experience from the same company with quality or selling through Amazon, such as Optoma OCM815B or Optoma OCM815W.

  • PVP: $ 1,249

If you want a projector who uses DLP technology and has a native 4K resolution, as well as provides good value for money, then you will get more than a decent option for ViewSonic PX747-4K.

Its price is one of the cheapest ultra-HD projectors in the market today. It is true that everything that is not glazed and has some butt, but for example, the brightness it provides is excellent.

It is not very different from other models of the same manufacturer. The main difference is found in the range of colors, while comparing it with ViewSonic PX727-4K. One factor that we like most is the sound quality.

This is a project that is designed to be used at home definitely. Its 4 kilogram weight does not make it an ideal travel companion, so we recommend buying it if you are thinking of setting it up in a room in your house.

3. Epson EH-TW650

  • RRP: US $ 549.99

As other models of this list display, 4K projectors are expensive devices, so if you can pass with a full HD native resolution, then selecting an option like Epson EH-TW650 is best.

The best thing about this projector is that it is not only fair price but it is capable of presenting a clear image compared to some portable LED projectors whose cost is the same.

One disadvantage of betting on this projector is that it consumes approximately 300 watts and gets hot quickly. In return, it provides horizontal trapezoidal correction, zoom and manual focus, while vertical trapezoidal correction is automatic.

Although it was a good idea to incorporate WiFi into the projector, the truth is that it is not for practical purposes. You can connect your smartphone or laptop to the projector and play a video in streaming, you will see that you have consumed all your data immediately.

Basic specifications

  • Native resolution: Full HD (1920 x 1080)
  • Projection system: LCD
  • Brightness: 3,100 ANSI lumens
  • Contrast ratio: 15,000: 1
  • Zoom Index: 1.2: 1
  • Connectivity: HDMI, USB 2.0, VGA, 802.11 / b / g / n wifi, 1 2W speaker
  • Dimensions: 302 x 252 x 92 mm
  • Weight: 2.7 kg

4. Mars II by Nebula Anker

Nebula Mars II projector can not disappear from our list of best projectors because it is a portable device with a long battery life, HD resolution, its autofocus capability and good sound quality.

If you can spend € 549.90, if the projector spends, the truth is that it is worth it. Nebula is an anchor sub-brand that usually offers quality products, so we are confident that we are acquiring a product which will last for long and will work as expected.

As a failure, we can highlight the lack of Google Play installed in the factory (which will not prevent you from downloading the app), and the fact that you can adjust the size of the screen without moving the whole device.

5. BenQ TK800

  • RRP: $ 1,499.99

Correct: The BenQ TK800 is not a 4K projector which is strictly speaking. However, it is capable of simultaneously simulating the results we receive with this type of projector and provides an experience that will make the average consumer happy.

The color representation is decent and provides a number of ANSI lumen capable of fighting ambient light. The price can not be what attracts the attention of this model, but it is in line with many other projectors for home cinema.

For its exterior design, it is similar to the previous model but with a very significant difference: the blue front. This is not what we like most about the BenQ TK800 and in general we would expect a more ergonomic experience.

You can control Navigator by using the buttons that you will find in the projector or with the remote control as well as backlit keys – which includes it and that we personally are very useful.

Basic specifications

  • Native resolution: 4K2K (1920 x 1080)
  • Projection system: DLP
  • Brightness: 3,000 ANSI lumens
  • Contrast ratio: 10,000: 1
