Amazon has shown us that Cyber Monday truly is the new Black Friday. Not only is it a day with better deals and prices, one can conduct all their business from their couch or office chair, without having to sleep in a tent for four days in front of Best Buy.
Here’s the Top 5 best Amazon Cyber Monday deals on projectors.
1. DBPower T20 – 1500 Lumens – 59% Off
For those looking for a simple projector to show movies or TV shows, this DBPower projector does the job well. It boasts 1500 lumens of brightness which is enough to watch movies in a dark room (though it won’t suffice for anything brighter than that). It will also work for any video game that doesn’t rely on text or lots of detail. The resolution here isn’t too high, but truly for anything but text (or say displaying your computer screen) the low number of pixels won’t be too noticeable. That said, if you want the true home theater experience, it won’t do. Still, as a budget pick, this projector is a plain great deal.
2. Vamvo Outdoor Projection Screen – 57% Off
Nothing takes a projector to the next level like a reflective screen. There really isn’t a way to upgrade the brightness or clarity of a projector once you’ve invested in it, but by getting a screen like this, you can drastically impact the image you see. This stable and easy to set up screen includes a carrying case and is made of durable fabric. It can easily be transported in a small car and once you set it up, it’s very sturdy.
3. Epson Home Cinema 2045 – 36% Off
If you’re wondering how much it costs to get near theater quality picture from a projector these days, here’s your answer: under $600. This Epson projector boasts 2200 lumens of brightness and full 1080P resolution. It can project up to 300″ and has a true theatrical aspect ratio of 16:9. For those ready to bring the theater home on the cheap, this is a great meeting point of performance and price.
4.ViewSonic 3300 Lumens XGA (1024 x 768) Projector – Only $399.99
This Viewsonic is available today at 20% off and it boasts a slightly different set of features: it’s a bit brighter than the Epson (about 30%) clocking in at 3300 lumens. It boasts excellent contrast and a three year limited warranty, which is always nice. That said, the resolution is a step down both in aspect ratio and resolution. It’s 1024 x 768, which is just enough to view Powerpoints and other office documents. Unfortunately, it’s 4:3. Therefore, widescreen movies will be letterboxed. This means that the effective resolution is even lower. Still, for those who want that extra edge in brightness, this is a solid pick at an even lower price.
Price: $399.99 (20 percent Off MSRP)
5. BenQ DLP HD 1080P Short Throw Projector – Only $629.00
This 1080P projector boasts 2200 lumens but has a great contrast ratio of 15,000 to 1, meaning it’s color is spot-on. The throw is very short: at 6′ it projects about 80″ of screen. For those who need a shorter throw, this is the way to go.
Price: $629.00 (10 percent off MSRP)
