Best Black Friday projector deals 2023: save big on portable, HD, laser and 4K projectors

Projectors are the heart of an authentic home cinema setup, especially if you're trying to replicate the cinema part. However, the top-notch 4K beamers aren't cheap, and neither are their portable counterparts. It's a good job that we've rounded up some of the best projector deals on the internet, meaning you can snag the best without breaking the bank.

Whether it's a traditional home cinema-style projector, or a portable movie companion to take on the go, there are plenty of great deals out there to help you save on some of the best projectors.

We have sifted through the prices of projectors from the likes of Epson, Optoma, LG, JVC, BenQ and more, and hand picked the offers that we like the look of best. Below you will find a choice of HD and 4K projectors with 3LCD, DLP and even some laser technology too. Keep an eye open for connectivity and smart platform options but don't forget that a spare HDMI port is all you need to add some apps of your own. 

All year round, we scour the well-known online retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, World Wide Stereo and Crutchfield to keep on top of the very best discounts and prices on all kinds of projectors.

We have rounded-up not only the cheapest prices on some of the very best projectors on the market that we have tried and tested, but also the pick of the other projector deals on offer. If we haven't reviewed the projector in question, we will use our market knowledge to let you know what we think of the deal.

Right, that's the basics covered. One final thing to note is that as we're now fully immersed in the Black Friday week of sales, there's been an influx of projector deals. We'll keep this page updated with the best ones we find across this sale event.
