Projector Reviews

The 2018-2019 Best in Classroom Projector Award Winners

This year’s list of award winners is divided into three categories: Standard Classroom Projectors (K-12 classrooms primarily), Large Venue Projectors (university classrooms and lecture halls, small auditoriums), and Interactive and Ultra Short Throw Classroom Projectors (suitable in any room that can be handled by screen sizes up to 100 – 120″ maximum; 120″ is about the largest image most UST projectors will project).

This year, there are six projectors competing for awards in the Standard “Class.” Five projectors compete in the Large Venue (higher education) Class. Finally, five total Ultra Short Throw or Interactive projectors in that class. This year, three are fully interactive projectors. The others are “merely” UST projectors.

Projectors that Projector Reviews reviewed in the past 12 months and are suitable for education usage are eligible for these awards. Please note, throughout this report, that we also list a number of previous award winners from past Best Education Projector reports. Those older top performers already “had their day in court.” Although they are all still highly competitive, those previous winning projectors are not eligible for a new award in this year’s report.

The only projectors from previous reports that we include are those not only are those previous Best In Classroom Award winners, but they must be current models today, and will still be available in volume through the end of this summer. That requirement exists so that schools, school districts, and colleges and universities will be able to buy quantities this summer (2018) to be installed before the fall classes start up.  Call that the normal cycle.
