Projectors – they may seem like a professional luxury, not something meant for homes. Well, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Projectors can also substitute for home theaters, the outdoor cinema experience, or even for working on your presentation assignments within your small room. There is a whole range of options to choose from – mini projectors, 4k projectors, office projectors, home cinema projectors, and the list goes on. Having trouble finding which projector suits your requirements? We’re here to help. Scroll down to find out the projectors you need to get based on your individual needs.

We’ve discovered the best projectors for their needs, but how do you find the best projector? The first question you need to answer is – what is the size of the room? While the projectors we have here work for a varied range of sizes, it's always best to find a unit that works ideally for the size you need. The next question – how do you plan to position it? Will it be placed on the ground or overhead? Answering these questions will help you narrow further from this list.
