  • Conference Room

    The $699 ViewSonic LS550WH is a good budget option for a solid state, short throw conference room or classroom projector. It's suitably sharp and shows good color accuracy in its best mode, though frequent rainbow artifacts may be an issue for some.

  • Conference Room

    The unique Broomx MK360 all-in-one solution delivers impressively immersive environments for institutions or businesses looking to offer unique experiences.

  • Home Theater

    The $2,699 Wemax Nova ultra-short-throw projector delivers great out-of-the-box performance in SDR, but has no significant calibration options and runs into some issues, particularly with its handling of HDR.

  • Home Theater

  • Home Theater

    As a gaming-first projector, the BenQ TK700 fits the bill. It's very bright, has low input lag, delivers a nice, crisp picture and is a solid performer for movies, too. There are a few missing features, but still offers a lot for its $1,400 price.

  • Home Theater

    It's neither terribly bright nor high resolution, but with a price of only $249, the AAXA P8 is an inexpensive pico projector that surprises with an Android OS offering a built-in web browser and streaming apps.

  • Home Theater

    2022 Editor's ChoiceThe Hisense PX1-PRO TriChroma laser ultra-short throw projector might seem like a less capable option next to the L9G according to specs, but in actuality it over-delivers to be the best UST in its price range.

  • Home Theater

    2022 Editor's ChoiceEpson's new flagship home theater projector, the Pro Cinema LS12000, has a laser light source capable of 2,700 ANSI lumens, deep blacks, HDMI 2.1 inputs that support 4K/120Hz gaming, and input lag below 20 ms, all for $4,999.

  • Conference Room

  • Home Theater

  • Video Review Home Theater

    2022 Editor's ChoiceThe LG HU715Q ultra-short throw projector has an excellent combination of features and performance at an attractive $2,999 price.

  • Home Theater

    The LG HU710PW has a great collection of features and an interesting hybrid light engine that uses both a laser and LEDs to achieve close to 100% DCI-P3 color gamut.

  • Home Theater

    At $2,999, the JMGO U2 is the least expensive RGB triple-laser 4K UST projector currently available, but it's let down by inaccurate out-of-box color and the lack of controls to fix it.
