Video Projector Reviews

No high-end or dedicated home theater is complete without a video projector. Video projectors are the only way to truly re-create that big-screen experience you get when going to the movies. There are many different types of front projectors, ranging in price from well under $1,000 to well over six figures. Which one is right for you? Do you need a true home theater projector that can reproduce a really deep black level for a dedicated theater room? Or perhaps you need a brighter, more portable home entertainment projector for a living room or den? What's the difference between LCD, DLP, and LCoS projection technologies? Is 4K the way to go? Get the answers through the resource links below, and check out the latest projector reviews in our archive.

What is DLP?
LCoS Technology Explained
What is D-ILA?
