Top Features | Best Full HD Projectors

  • Our Rating – This is based on our own research in product testing and user feedback. Clicking on each product takes you to the product page where you can read HD projector reviews from real customers.
  • 3D Support – Some of the best full HD projectors have built-in 3D technology where no extra adapters are needed, and the projector can just be linked up to a 3D playback source such as a 3D Blu-Ray player.
  • Wireless – There aren’t too many full HD projectors that have WiFi built-in, but those that do are able to wirelessly stream movies and music from laptops, smartphones, tablets and any other wireless device.
  • Resolution – The maximum resolution output that the projector has. Most models such as BenQ and Optoma HD projectors allow you to switch between various resolution modes including 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, 480i, 576i, 576p.
  • Aspect Ratio – This is the image size of the width and height ratio, and like the resolution, some models allow you to switch between different aspect ratios.
  • Contrast Ratio – This is the “ratio of the luminance of the brightest color (white) to that of the darkest color (black)” that the full HD projector can produce. Simply put, a higher contrast ratio is more desirable as it has more dynamic colours.
  • Projection Distance – The distance at which the projector has to be from the surface in order to effectively display an image. The further away from the surface it is, the bigger the image will be.
  • Projection Screen Size – The smallest and largest image that the projector can display.
  • Lumens – The total amount of light to the human eye is measured in lumens. The higher the number of lumens, the brighter the bulb will be. In relation to a full HD projector, brighter doesn’t necessarily equate to a better looking display. Room ambience plays an important role in this respect.
  • Lamp Life – Generally, how long will the projector’s bulbs last for until they need to be replaced? Projector bulbs can be pretty expensive, so it’s important to purchase a model that has long lasting bulbs.
  • Speakers – Most full HD projectors already have speakers integrated and most are adequate enough, though if you really want an immersive audio experience, it’s best to get external speakers such as a soundbar or a hi-fi system.
  • Price – If you want to know the price of any of the models, just click on the Buy Now button or Check Price and you’ll be redirected to the product page. The reason we don’t put prices is because they constantly change and there are so many sellers offering different prices.

5 Reasons to Buy a Full HD Projector

Still on the fence about buying a full HD projector? These 5 reasons may just convince you of just how great and convenient they are.

1. True Home Cinema Experience

The clarity and display size from a full HD projector is the closest thing you’ll get to a home cinema experience for the meantime. With a display of up to 300+ inches, you won’t be able to get a TV to match that size, at least not without forking out a fortune for it.

2. Take it Anywhere

The great thing about projectors is that you can literally bring it on the move with you, particularly in the case of Mini HD projectors. This makes it convenient for watching sports round a friend’s house or taking it to the office to do a presentation. Some models will supply a carry case for you too.

3 Saves Space

No matter what size TV you get, it’s still going to take up a lot more space than a projector would in your living room. Without a TV, your room will be less cluttered and appear to be more open. All you need for a full HD projector is a blank light coloured wall to project the screen onto.

4. Easier Connections

Because of the portable size of a full HD projector, it’s much easier to connect external devices to it as opposed to a larger TV.

Not only can full HD projector offer such a diverse range of connections, but some models such as certain ones from BenQ and Optoma have MHL technology integrated which allows smartphones, tablets and other portable devices to be connected directly to the projector via a single cable.

5. Typically Less Expensive Than TVs

When you compare the mid to top range of the best full HD projectors and TVs, you’ll usually find that the former cost less. While some argue that a projector is not a substitute for a TV, but rather a complimentary device, it can still do everything a TV can do and more, albiet with an external device such as a laptop.
