  • Home Theater

    2024 Editor's ChoiceThe DLA-NZ900, JVC's new flagship home theater projector, will replace the highly regarded NZ-9 while building on its excellence with, among other changes, a Gen3 D-ILA chipset for better contrast and increased sharpness.

  • Large Venue

    Sharp NEC's PA1705UL 3LCD laser projector is a 16,000 ANSI lumen powerhouse that offers high brightness and the robust PA series feature set in the same footprint as the brand's earlier 10,000-lumen model.

  • Home Theater

    2024 Highly RecommendedThe 1080p BenQ HT2060 4LED projector offers good performance for its price, including low-latency gaming. It's a nice option for prospective buyers looking to enter the world of projection or upgrade from an aging lamp model.

  • Home Theater

    2024 Highly RecommendedIt's got a few caveats, but the Optoma UHZ55 is a recommendable 4K laser home theater/gaming projector that offers solid performance and value.

  • Home Theater

    2024 Highly RecommendedThe Anker Mars 3 Air is a high-value 1080p LED portable projector that delivers 400 lumens of brightness in its brightest mode, and runs on the Google TV streaming platform that includes an authorized Netflix app, all for $600.

  • Home Theater

    2024 Editor's ChoiceLeica's Cine 1, derived from a premium Hisense RGB laser TV, claims the sharpest images we've seen from a UST projector thanks to Leica's lens pedigree.

  • Conference Room

  • Large Venue

    Ricoh re-enters the North American market with a nearly 10,000 ANSI lumens projector at a competitive price, partly due to a cost-effective affixed lens.

  • Home Theater

    The Nomvdic P2000 offers striking design and an attractive price for an RGB UST, and it performs well in most respects. However, out-of-box color inaccuracy and ineffective adjustments for HDR may take it out of contention for some buyers.

  • Portable

    Optoma's ML1080ST is the most compact and portable projector we've seen to offer an RGB laser engine with full BT.2020 color gamut, making it a good choice for road warrior presentations, digital signage, and other applications where color counts.

  • Large Venue

    With its G50 Series, Barco has effectively downsized the case of its entry-level installation family while retaining high brightness potential, producing a mid-sized projector that can light up a large conference room, lecture hall or small church.

  • Pico

    The AAXA P7+ is a highly portable 1080p pico projector that includes an Android-based OS for streaming from included apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Twitch, and Vimeo. While it's not very bright, it's good for mobile applications like camping.

  •  
  • Home Theater

    The Optoma UHZ35ST is a very capable, compact laser gaming projector with an easy-to-use, plug-and-play setup. But it's missing some key features when compared to similarly priced competitors.

  • Home Theater

    2023 Highly RecommendedAnker's Nebula Mars 3 is a high-performing portable projector uniquely equipped for the outdoors thanks to water-, dust- and drop-resistance, and a large built-in battery that doubles as a power bank.

  • Home Theater

    2023 Highly RecommendedThe BenQ X3100i is an update to the BenQ X3000i gaming projector released in 2022. It keeps the great gaming performance of its predecessor while upping the light output and adding a few game-centric features.

  • Home Theater

    The Epson LS650 sets itself apart with its simplicity. While it lacks calibration controls and some features, such as Dolby Vision support and a wide color gamut, it has high brightness and ease of use that should work well for everyday TV watchers.

  • Home Theater

    Infocomm Best of Show 2023ViewSonic's X2-4K is a gaming-forward, "Designed for Xbox" projector with a low latency that rivals TVs, is rated at 2,000 ANSI lumens, and handles home theater content admirably for $1,599.

  • Conference Room

    The BenQ LH730 1080p LED projector is a great option for school or businesses to use in the classrooms and conference rooms, with good light output and high value for its $1,299 price tag.

  • Conference Room

    The Epson PowerLite L260F is already an excellent deal at $1,535 on the street, but for schools enrolled in Epson's Brighter Futures program, it's a steal at $1,199. It outputs just over its 4,600 lumen rating, and includes Wi-Fi and a cable cover.

  • Home Theater

    It's not without its quirks, but the JMGO N1 Ultra is a unique and sophisticated 4K, RGB laser projector that offers good performance, though it needs calibration to achieve real color accuracy.

  • Home Theater

    The Formovie X5 is a portable 4K laser projector with attractive industrial design and a good price-to-performance ratio—though its current Chinese OS is a limitation.

  • Large Venue

    The first of LG's projectors to feature its commercial Signage webOS digital signage platform, the ProBeam BU70QGA is a surprisingly cost-effective 4K model with 7,000 ANSI lumens suitable for a wide range of venues and applications.

  • Portable

    2023 Highly RecommendedThe LG CineBeam PU700R is a smart lifestyle projector with an unusual spotlight form factor that calls to mind Samsung's Freestyle model, but it far outclasses that product with 4K resolution and a solid, 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness.

  • Portable

    It's got a couple of little issues, but overall the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro is a nice step forward for portable projectors with its sophisticated auto-setup features, surprisingly accurate color, and P3 gamut coverage.

  • Conference Room

    The ViewSonic LS610HDH projector is a solid-state, 1080p LED projector for classrooms and business environments that is bright enough to shine even in ambient light and comes in with a very affordable $1,100 price tag.

  • Home Theater

    2023 Highly RecommendedThe BenQ HT4550i, an update to the popular HT3550, is a 4K LED light source projector for dark-room theater that achieves 100% DCI-P3 HDR color gamut and excellent out-of-box or calibrated accuracy.
