Projector Reviews is the industry’s leading authority on all things projectors. Ours are the most in-depth reviews on the internet. We tell you everything you wanted to know and everything you didn’t even know you wanted to know about projectors, complete with occasionally witty commentary on the projectors, by our experienced reviewers.
Here you will find detailed reviews of Home Theater Projectors, Business Projectors, Education Projectors (for K-12 and Higher Education), as well as Pico Projectors and Pocket Projectors. Our mission is to not only identify the best projectors, but to provide enough information for you to choose the projector that is right for you.
For the home, we review both home entertainment and the more serious home theater projectors, ranging from standard HD, to 1080p, 1080p with pixel shifting, 4k UHD to the high-end 4K projectors. We also review projector screens and accessories and offer a large database of projector specifications, data sheets, and brochures for you to compare, helping to narrow down your search for the perfect projector. continue reading…

Although the smallest and lightest of these projectors are often considered toys, there are plenty of serious small LED projectors suitable for personal and business use. Today’s entries offer resolutions up to 1080p, rivaling larger models. Some of these run on internal batteries or AC power. Most of these can stream content from the internet, and have built in media players that let you go computer free. Or, you can interface these portable projectors to computers, tablets and smart phones. We review pico and pocket projectors from manufacturers including LG, Viewsonic, AAXA, Vivitek, Acer, Optoma, Sony, NEC, and ASUS,

…Once a year, we publish a Classroom Projector Report and a Home Theater Projector Report, detailing all the projectors we reviewed for the year in each category, along with multiple Holiday Guides and Projector Comparisons to help with your holiday shopping.
Projector Videos of Reviews: Projector Reviews TV is our video initiative, where you can find more than 100 FAQ and projector review videos. All videos are produced and published by Projector Reviews, aiming to give you the same stellar quality found in our written content. Projectors that have review videos often will have two versions – a short overview and a longer summary. We’ve made our videos available on YouTube for easy subscription, so that you never miss a beat.
Eric, our ISF certified calibrator, calibrates all but the least expensive models. To provide further value to you, we publish Eric’s results on our site so that you don’t have to spring $300 to $600 plus for a professional calibration when spending a couple thousand or less on a projector. Some manufacturers subsidize our cost, and so we publish all our results on those for free. For all the rest of the manufacturers, our under $5.00 subscription will give you access to all of the results. For the price of a coffee, the subscription to our site saves you time and money, as you will find that Eric’s and Mike’s (our previous calibrator) results will improve the color and overall picture of virtually any projector.
When you find our content helpful, give it a like and drop a comment so that we know exactly what information is interesting to you and can provide more specific content to suit your needs.
We also review home automation projectors on our sister site, Smarter Home Automation, where we discuss smart products that can be used in the home theater, such as smart flood lights, bulbs, LED strips, light switches, motorized shades, and smart hubs to control the whole home such as the Amazon Echo and Google Home. After all, home automation started in the home theater. We also provide reviews of smart thermostats, door locks, Z-Wave controllers, and doorbells. Interested in automating your home?
