Best projector deals: portable, Full HD, 4K and more

Summer is a great time to find projector deals on 4K, HD and portables too. Whether you're looking for something for your home or the garden, you'll find some great bargains here and even have enough money left over for drinks, nibbles and a couple of 4K Blu-rays. Before you dive right into the best projector deals, though, here a few things to bear in mind.

Remember to check out the dimensions and how versatile any potential projector is with positioning before you buy. You don't want to take delivery of a new toy only to discover it's not suitable for your room. To help you, we've also written our own guide on how to set up your projector and get the best picture.

Pricier models will handle 4K content, giving you an incredibly lifelike picture uncovering greater detail, better contrast and more accurate colours. Make sure it has the relevant inputs that support your sources e.g HDMI for a games console or 4K Blu-ray player. Some projectors even include wi-fi and built-in video streaming for the ultimate in convenience.

Right, that's the basics covered. Here's our pick of the best projector deals.

Nebula Capsule projector £400 £272 at Amazon
When reviewed, we praised the Capsule's "neat design, solid sound and access to streaming services". Its resolution of 854 x 480 pixels is par for the course when it comes to miniature projectors. A brightness of 100 lumens means you'll need a dimly-lit room. Not perfect but it's the best mini around.View Deal

Superb price

Nebula Mars II Pro 720p portable £600 £367 at TecoBuy
This portable projector is fun, quick and enjoyable to use. Set-up requires minimum fuss, and thanks to its wi-fi and built-in apps, you can stream content directly through it. With this healthy discount, this lunchbox-sized projector is very tasty indeed.

Epson EF-12 1080p portable projector £899 £819 at John Lewis
The EF-12 is the best portable projector under £1000. It might not quite be able to beat similarly priced traditional home cinema projectors but it's not far off and comes with the bonus of a very decent 2 x 5W 'Sound by Yamaha' sound system plus Android TV OS and its suit of streaming apps – a very good all-in-one.

Optoma UHD30 4K projector £1099 £949 at Crampton & Moore
Not one we've tested but this is Optoma's current entry-level 4K projector. It supports HDR and includes the low lag and high frame rate gaming features of the UHD42 below.View Deal

Optoma UHD42 4K projector £1299 £1049 at Crampton & Moore
This is a very decent budget 4K projector with some good HDR pop and some of the best black depth you'll find in this price bracket and beyond. It features a powered USB socket and high frame rate HDMI certification for gamers to enjoy.View Deal

Product of the Year

Epson EH-TW7100 4K HDR projector £1699 £1490 at Amazon
It may seem pricey for what is an entry level 4K product but this projector is a real gem. The black depth is very decent for this kind of money, the colours are bold and balanced, and the HDR production brings an excellent sense of immersion.

Epson EH-TW7400 4K projector £2199 £1799 at Currys
The 4K might not be native but this projector's enhancement technology and HDR offering does a very good job. It's sharp, colourful, dynamic and, with £400 knocked off, a hell of a lot cheaper than an actual native 4K projector.View Deal

Five-star bargain

LG CineBeam HU80KA 4K projector £1999 £1875 at Amazon
This high-end portable projector handles 4K HDR material and comes with connectivity including an app store of its own. With 2500 lumens of brightness and a 150in picture too, it's one of the most feature-complete projectors you'll ever find.

Epson EH-TW9400 4K projector £2549 £2499 at AVOnline
This is one of the very best projectors you can buy before making the huge financial step up to the native 4K bracket. It still offers plenty of pixel-shifted 4K detail and a vibrant colour palette. For a truly deep, inviting, big screen experience it's a winner at any price.View Deal

Optoma UHZ65 4K laser projector £4999 £2800 at Richer Sounds
We liked this laser projector but the price was a problem. Now down to a sensible point it's a great option. It offers the kind of big brightness and flexibility that makes it an excellent choice as a TV replacer for the living room. Just add a media streamer.View Deal

Sony VPL-VW270ES 4K projector £4999 £4990 at Sevenoaks
A tiny discount but anything you can get off what is one of the best projectors out there is well worth jumping at. This native 4K model offers an incredibly immersive picture with a brilliant sense of depth and insight, and some of the smoothest action around.View Deal

Rare native 4K discount

Sony VPL-VW590ES native 4K projector £6999 £6299 at Amazon
Pick up this five-star native 4K projector for an absolute steal. With fantastic 4K detail, an exciting and vivid picture, and top-notch motion processing, you'll melt into a world of cinematic bliss.

Sony VPL-VW760ES 4K projector £14,999 £9999 at AVOnline
This ex-demo native 4K laser source projector is available at a song, largely because it has just been superseded by a 2020 model. It's not one we've reviewed but the Sony SXRD projectors are a very solid bet. Expect excellent contrast, colours and black levels.View Deal
