The 1080p projectors category includes the latest projectors with true HD 1080p resolution. See below for a list of 1080p projector reviews and information pages.
For home theater systems, 1080p HD projectors are essential for enjoying the high definition picture quality that are produced in all major blockbusters today. Eventually, even 1080p projectors will become dated if they are not ‘3D Ready.’
This advanced technology comes at a pretty penny. Though if you do a cost/benefit analysis with regard to how long this superior 1080p projector will last, the projector lamp life, and with the user experience, there is a net benefit for buying 1080p projectors if you are in the market for a home theater projector system.
The quality difference between HD projectors is relatively small. Unless 1080p projectors are displaying a picture side-by-side, it is very difficult to experience a difference in picture or performance.
With that being said, don't be pressured to spend outside of your budget or get caught up in specifications, just find one that feels right.
