Buying guide for home theater projectors

Before getting a projector for your home, there are several factors that you must keep in mind: price, resolution, image positioning features (zoom, trapezoidal correction …), brightness and technology.

1. How much are you willing to pay for a projector?

Quality projectors are not a cheap device, but the truth is that their features have a price. We recommend not to bet on a cheap model that you will easily find on Amazon since its quality will leave much to be desired.

2. How much resolution should a good projector have?

Some of the high-quality projectors have a resolution of 1280 x 720, but we recommend betting on a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) because the pixels of the image will fade when projected to the wall. The 4K resolution, 3840 x 2160 pixels, is very common among economical TVs, but it is not yet among the projectors. Those who have this resolution have a price above € 5,000.

That means that the most affordable projectors do not come with a resolution of these characteristics, but the ones known as True 4K include DLP technology that creates a kind of 4K image through a pixel shifting process . It is not the same as interpolation, which is what camera manufacturers use to enlarge the image. With the pixel shifting, the image is not as sharp as with a native 4K but it is better than with Full HD.

3. What image features do you need?

It is highly recommended to opt for a projector model in which you can rotate the lens, as this will allow you to move the projected image horizontally and/or vertically and place it on any wall of the room, not necessarily the one in front of it.

On the other hand, the trapezoidal correction will be useful if you think you will want to alter the image digitally to correct its appearance. Of course, keep in mind that doing so is more than likely that the image quality degrades.

4. What technology do you prefer: LCD, DLP or LED?

It is equally important to know the differences between the main technologies used in the manufacture of projectors: LCD, DLP or LED. LCD projectors, for example, are usually the largest but not all include rotating lenses. On the other hand, these are found in DLP models. These projectors have better contrast and more vibrant colors but sometimes suffer from the so-called “rainbow effect”, which can be somewhat annoying for readers with sensitive eyes.

On the other hand, LED projectors have made these devices more affordable for the general public. In any case, remember that this type of technical specifications will determine the quality of the image they can offer. In addition, it is also advisable to ensure that they include motion interpolation to prevent objects that move on the screen from appearing choppy. This feature adds extra frames automatically and manages to avoid it.

5. How bright are the projectors?

Projectors designed to be used at home do not usually have as much brightness as in office models since the former is intended for use in dark rooms. You should make sure that your home theater projector has a minimum brightness of 1,600 ANSI lumens, as this will allow you to watch a movie with at least one light on in the room.

If you have 1,000 ANSI lumens, you will only get to see the screen well if you are completely in the dark. However, if you want to enjoy a football game in broad daylight and with the curtains open, you should look at models with about 3,000 ANSI lumens.
