Optoma UHD60

4K is just a tiny part of the huge, excellent picture

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
Sure the Optoma UHD60 projector looks slightly sharper with 4K, but superb contrast is its real strength.

Best picture for the money

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
The Optoma HD142X projector spits out wall-filling swaths of full-HD resolution for less than the cost of a decent 50-inch TV.



BenQ HT2050

A better picture, a bit more money

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
The BenQ HT2050 projects one of the best dark-room images for the money we’ve tested, making it worth the money for video-quality buffs.

Best value for smaller rooms

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
With an impressive picture for the price, the Viewsonic PJD7828HDL is a top choice for projector seekers with smaller rooms.



Sony VPL-VW350ES

Best 4K projector

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
Sure it costs a mint, but with a screen this large you might actually notice an improvement from the high resolution. Other picture quality aspects are stellar too.



Epson Home Cinema 4000

No 4K, no problem

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
Despite lacking 4K resolution, the Epson HC4000 projector delivers a very impressive image for the price.



BenQ CineHome HT2550

Affordable 4K projector proves resolution isn’t everything

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
The BenQ HT2550 is one of the first projectors with actual 4K resolution for under $1,500. So is it worth paying extra?



Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000

Best friggin’ laser projector

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
A laser light engine lends this high-end projector great picture quality, along with far-future bragging rights

Cheapest for a decent picture

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
A little light cannon with the ability to fill a huge screen, the Epson Home Cinema 640 produces a surprisingly impressive image for the price.



Epson Home Cinema 2045

Best for people who see DLP rainbows

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
The Epson Home Cinema 2045 might not match the picture quality of some better DLP units, but it also doesn’t suffer from the “rainbow effect.”



Viewsonic PRO7827HD

Best connectivity and features

Editors’ Rating : 8.1
Design : 6Features : 9Performance : 9Value : 7
The Viewsonic PRO7827HD is an impressive projector with oodles of features for the money, but can’t quite match the best models we’ve tested.
