  • Home Theater

    2022 Editor's ChoiceLG's new HU915QB flagship laser ultra-short throw home theater projector doesn't come out of the box looking perfect, but it calibrates well to deliver some of the best images you'll see from any projector.

    2022 Editor's ChoiceThe JVC DLA-NZ8 builds on JVC's proven record with new features like HDMI 2.1 with 8K e-shiftX, bright 2,500 ANSI lumen output, and an excellent image with deep blacks.

  • Home Theater

    2022 Editor's ChoiceAs the least expensive native 4K laser projector on the market, Sony's VPL-XW5000ES cuts some corners to get to its $5,999 price point, but overall it delivers winning performance.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Pocket

    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

    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.

  • Home Theater

    2022 Highly RecommendedThe LG CineBeam PF610P serves its role well as a lifestyle projector that can be easily set up for living room or backyard use.

  • Portable

  • Home Theater

    2021 Highly RecommendedThe XGIMI Aura's $2,499 price tag makes it an attractive UST option. Even though its out-of-box image accuracy isn't great and its color and calibration controls are limited, with a few tweaks the Aura delivers a sharp, highly watchable picture.

  • Home Theater

  • Home Theater

    The 1080p XGIMI Elfin is not only one of the smallest and lightest projectors in its class, it also is one of the brightest with a measured max light output of 712 ANSI lumens. It even accepts HDR and has built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
