What Hi-Fi? Awards 2018 winner. Top-class projector technology at a budget price point, complete with 4K and HDR support.View Deal
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 over £400 knocked off, a hell of a lot cheaper than an actual native 4K projector.View Deal
Native 4K at nearly half the original price; do we need to say any more? This 2017 projector is still up to date with latest HDR and HDMI standards. It's great at upscaling, very good to use and produces one of the most natural and enjoyable pictures in the business.View Deal
