Best Projector Models for Hosting an Indoor Movie Night

The final stretch of winter is here but in some locations, you may find that the weather is still bitterly cold with more snow storms in sight! With the right projector you can stay warm indoors and never have a reason to leave the house until winter runs its course and comes to a close for good.



Below are a few of the best models to help make your movie viewing sessions more cinematic and enjoyable.


Epson VS250 SVGA
If you’re looking for a long-lasting projector, then this entry-level model from Epson is a great option. It boasts a 10,000 hour lamp life which means that you will be able to get plenty of use out of it before it gives up the ghost and a replacement is needed. It may only have a pixel count of 800×600, meaning it cannot quite match true HD models in terms of clarity. But with a compact design, fast start-up time and decent 3200 lumens brightness rating, it is a good starting point.

LG PH550
Part of the Minibeam LED range, this 720p HD unit is built for extreme portability and convenience. It has wireless connectivity for easy media streaming, as well as a built in battery that can power it for up to two and a half hours without the need for a plug; easily long enough to watch most movies. The fact that it uses an LED lamp helps with lifespan, although that does mean that brightness is not quite up there with some other models. The 550 lumens rating is modest, but if you turn the lights out, it will still do the job.

LG MiniBeam

BenQ i500
Another wireless model, the i500 is targeted at people who want an affordable compact projector with short throw capabilities and a surprisingly stylish design.

It comes with a pair of built-in 5 watt speakers and can project screens of between 60 and 200 inches in size. The biggest benefit of its streaming capability is that it is easy to use in different rooms of the house, whether you want to watch a movie on the couch downstairs or create a cinema in your bedroom for those lazy winter weekends.

Epson EH-TW6700W
If you’re happy to stretch your budget quite a bit further, then this high flying projector from Epson will really leave you impressed.

It has an excellent 70,000:1 contrast ratio, a pair of HDMI inputs, lots of adjustability options and support for full 1080p HD content. The trend today may be for 4K projectors, but this model is a great mid-point between entry level and pro-sumer in terms of performance and price.

The inclusion of 3D playback capabilities and the ability to project a screen of up to 300 inches in size will make it even more attractive.

Top Projector Models for 2018

The start of a new year is a great time to check out the latest projectors which are going to make an impact over the next few months. Whether you want to overhaul your home cinema experience or experiment with new ways to spruce up your living space, these are the machines that will make an impact in 2018.



Viewsonic PJD7828HDL
Affordable, efficient and surprisingly capable given its price, this projector from Viewsonic has received critical acclaim. It boasts a full 1080p resolution, a 3200 lumens rating and a lamp life of around 4000 hours.




Optoma UHD65
If your projector budget is hefty enough then this impressive Optoma model might be worth adding to your wish list. It supports 4K resolutions and HDR playback, while also handling content from lower resolution sources admirably well. The 2200 lumens lamp and the 1,200,000:1 contrast ratio claimed by the manufacturer make it a competitive performer at its price point.



Making its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, this is LG’s first ever projector to offer 4K playback. It also stands out from the crowd thanks to its unusual design and its 2500 lumens output. The optimal screen size it can produce at this brightness is 150 inches and it even has built-in speakers to provide audio playback, making it fairly decent as a portable projector option.



BenQ CH100
For some people 4K is not the be all and end all of projector tech. Other features may be more important. The CH100 fits this brief, with a 30,000 hour lamp life in eco mode, wireless connectivity for media streaming and a low-noise fan which means it does not sound like a hurricane when it heats up during use.

Sony LSPX-A1
This model is another CES launch and costs as much as the average family car. But its jaw-dropping specifications are more than enough to justify the asking price. It is an ultra-short throw projector that can blast 4K footage onto walls and screens while sitting just 9.6 inches away from the surface. It also comes with an impressive 360 degree audio setup and a gorgeous outer body that makes it look more like a piece of furniture than a projector.

Sony LSPX-A1

Optoma UHD51A
While this projector may not quite match the other Optoma model in the list in terms of raw performance, it does outdo it in other areas. Specifically, the integration with Amazon’s popular Alexa voice controlled assistant is a really nice touch. This lets users control it with voice commands given to the Echo or Echo Dot smart speakers. The on board 4K chip is just the icing on the cake.



Viewsonic PX727-4K
This projector is designed to bring 4K to the masses, undercutting many of its rivals with a comparatively affordable asking price and a decent set of features. This is achieved thanks to some clever technical trickery which means that the sub-4K chip can actually hit higher resolutions without having a prohibitive price tag included.


Even the latest and newest projectors rely on long-lasting lamps to give you hours of entertainment. At, we sell inexpensive replacements for all of the biggest brand names around. We offer the largest market in North America and have an unbeatable selection of high-quality replacement lamps at low, affordable prices.

Top affordable projectors for the holiday season

Christmas time is (almost) here, and for most families that means getting ready for long hours spent on the couch together watching classic holiday movies while eating your favorite festive treats. It’s what brings friends and family together which is why many people go out of their way to make sure their loved ones are comfortable and entertained.


holiday 2


Whether it’s a new couch or easy chair, you can provide the basics to meet your needs but then it becomes all about which holiday classic you will watch and how? What movies you pick are down to your personal preferences – as long as It’s A Wonderful Life is in there somewhere – but the method you use to watch it, has only one good answer. You need a projector, especially if you’re going to be screening the old classics, as there’s no better way to see them.


holiday 1


A projector will give you the picture size and quality to truly appreciate the festive viewings with your friends and family, but they can be expensive to buy, which can by an issue at a time of year when you already have plenty of shopping to do.


holiday 3


We did some searching and came up with the best most affordable projectors for the upcoming holiday season:

Optoma HD28DS


This model is much cheaper than the top of the range video projectors on the market but it delivers quality that your average viewer (especially after a Christmas meal and some eggnog) wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. It comes with 1080p resolution, a brightness of 3,000 lumens that will defeat even the brightest of Christmas lights. It can play 3D and is capable of displaying an image up to 214×290 inches in the right room. What more could you need?


holiday 4

Epson EH-TW9300


If you want a more spectacular image quality for all the latest blockbusters (or you have a relative you really want to show off to – let’s be real, we’ve all been there) but can’t afford 4K, this Epson LCD projector offers 4K enhancement and upscaling of 1080p. If you’re a novice in the projector world, it’s also a very simple model to set up and use, which might also help if you’ve got THAT family member looking over your shoulder.

holiday 5

BenQ TH670


And finally we have another model that won’t cost your whole holiday budget but will give you a really great picture quality with 1080p resolution, a brightness of 3000 lumens and also has impressive built in speakers. This makes it a tempting option for anyone looking for a quick and easy introduction to projectors and who doesn’t want to splash out straight away with all the equipment needed to build a real home cinema in time for Christmas.

Best projectors for hosting a Gala or fundraising event

When hosting a large gala or fundraising event, the visual component is important no matter where the event is taking place. The guests should be entertained but also constantly reminded of why they are there. A fundraiser where the entertainment has been top notch but the call to actions have been few and far between may feel like a successful one, but quite literally won’t add up to much.


One of the best ways to prevent your gala event from running off track in this respect is to make sure that the guests are always having the right message and the call to action communicated to them clearly. More often than not, this involves using a projector. A good projector will act as a guide for your guests throughout the evening, showing key images, messages and information that they need to know.




But this will only work correctly if you have the right projector! Here are the best models to have for hosting a gala or fundraising event:

ViewSonic Pro8520HD


At a gala or fundraiser, the chances are that there will need to be a good amount of light used at any given time, especially if a large meal is being served as part of the event. But you will still need your projector to be operational and effective, so having the right level of brightness is key at these functions. This ViewSonic model packs a real punch in this area, with 5000 lumens’ worth of brightness to shine through even the busiest and brightest of galas with an excellent picture intact.


Epson BrightLink 536Wi


At 3400 lumens, this Epson model doesn’t offer the same brightness levels as the ViewSonic listed above, but it is still a powerful projector that will deliver good results in most conditions. It is a reasonably affordable model, but has excellent picture quality if you want to utilize photo slideshows at your gala, and can create a large image from a short distance as it is a short throw projector, which allows for greater flexibility when dealing with room layouts.


BenQ MH741


Another projector with very good picture quality and brightness, this BenQ model offers 4000 lumens, which should be enough to deal with whatever your event has to offer. It also comes with a great deal of flexibility for however you want to display your key fundraising information. It can deliver text and figures with perfect clarity so that guests can see how they can donate, but it is also built for showing high quality video, so if you have case studies which include the emotional side of the fundraising cause, this projector will give you the best of both worlds.



Whatever the cause you’re fundraising for, you’ll need to make sure your projector is working properly!
