Home Projectors and Playoff Hockey

The puck has dropped on the 2016 National Hockey League playoffs, and there is nothing like watching all the action on a large, bright screen. Today, most homeowners don’t invest in large screen televisions although they are cheaper than projector systems. Why? Projector screens are bigger than large screen televisions and are even easier on the eyes.



What are the Best Projectors for The Playoffs


You still have time to set up your projector system for the NHL post-season. However, hockey can be one of the most challenging sports to watch on a large screen. The fast action on a white ice surface can produce a difficult effect for quality viewing. This is especially true with very large screens. Consequently, you’ll want to invest in a better system to get a quality picture. Some features for improvement should include full HD support, 3D capability, strong DLP technology and frame interpolation.


Below, are a few projectors that offer all of these qualities.


1. The Optoma HD50 Home Theater Projector (Mid-range price)


2. The Sony VPL-VW350ES (Many added features but a higher cost)


3. Epson MovieMate 85HD 720p 3LCD (The most economical)
