Flatscreen TVs are all well and good, but there really is no alternative to watching films on a big screen. We've rounded up the best projector deals around right now so you can turn your lounge into a home cinema and have enough money left over for drinks, nibbles and a couple of 4K Blu-rays.

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!

Optoma UHD42 4K HDR projector £1299 £1189 at Richer Sounds
We've not had the pleasure of meeting this HDR10-supporting 4K projector but if it's anything like the UHD40 above then it's going to be a winner. It features a powered USB socket to support smart sticks such as Roku, Now TV and Chromecast and all the streaming that comes with them.View Deal

Optoma UHD40 4K projector £1599 £1199 at PRC Direct
It's pricier than some, but this 4K projector delivers top-flight performance for (relatively) little cash. Punchy colours meet an insightful level of detail and, with smooth motion and solid upscaling, it's a great step-up from a budget model.View Deal

Optoma UHL55 4K projector £1450 £1200 at Amazon
This isn't a model we've reviewed, so can't vouch for its overall quality but Optoma has a good track record of making very impressive projectors in this range. More to the point, 4K projectors are hard to find at this price, particularly ones which you can voice control.View Deal

Epson EH-TW7400 4K projector £2199 £1999 at Richer Sounds
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 £200 knocked off, a hell of a lot cheaper than an actual native 4K projector.View Deal

Optoma UHD65 4K projector £2499 £1999 at Richer Sounds
A What Hi-Fi? Award-winner, this is one of Optoma's top spec home projectors. It's excellent for 4K detail and colour, of course, but its upscaling and motion handling abilities are almost as impressive. Sophisticated and impressive, it deserves a place on your shortlist.

Epson EH-TW9400 4K projector £2699 £2548 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 this price.View Deal

Sony VPL-VW270ES 4K projector £4999 £4889 at AVOnline
Not a huge 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
