The best projector deals are available on 4K projectors, UST projectors and portables too. You just need to know where to look. The good news is that we've done all the legwork for you, so there's no need to invest more than five minutes of your time to find what you need.

We've 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'll find a choice of HD and 4K projectors with 3LCD, DLP and even some laser technology too. Keep an eye open for those with 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've rounded-up not only the cheapest prices on some of the very best projectors on the market that we've tried and tested, but also the pick of the other projector deals on offer. If we haven't reviewed the projector in question, we'll use our knowledge of the market to let you know what we think of the deal.

Vankyo Leisure 470 Mini

Vankyo Leisure 470 Mini $149 $130 at Best Buy
Not one we've reviewed but this super-budget mini-projector has proved popular with customers. It connects to your tablet or smartphone over wi-fi and will produce a picture of up to 250 inches across. Its native resolution is 1280 x 720, but it supports 1080p Full HD content too.

Nebula Capsule
Great discount!

Nebula Capsule portable projector $350 $300 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.

Epson Home Cinema 1080

Epson Home Cinema 1080 HD projector $750 $700 at Crutchfield
Not one we've tested but the 1080 offers good brightness and contrast, up to 3600 lumens and has a 16,000:1 stated ratio. Usually reliable at this price point, we'd imagine it's a solid purchase.

Epson EpiqVision EF-12

Epson EpiqVision EF-12 HD projector $1000 $900 at Crutchfield
This 1080p mini laser projector has the same imaging tech as the EF-11 but you also get a 2 x 5W 'Sound by Yamaha' speaker system plus Chromecast, Google Assistant, the Android TV OS and its jam packed app access. Well worth the extra.

Epson Home Cinema 2250 HD projector

Epson Home Cinema 2250 HD projector $999 $900 at Crutchfield
Currently cheaper than the 2150, the 2250 is actually the superior machine. Virtually identical but you should get a better picture out of this one as indicated by the 70,000:1 contrast ratio. Not a model we've reviewed though.

BenQ TK800M

BenQ TK800M 4K projector $1449 $1189 at Walmart
Here's a great deal on a 4K HDR projector. 3000 lumens of brightness, a 10:000:1 contrast ratio... and good customer reviews on Best Buy. Snap it up now.

BenQ TK850

BenQ TK850 4K HDR projector $1699 $1499 at Adorama
Not one we've tested but BenQ's HDR-PRO projectors offer an affordable and effective way of getting a 4K picture without breaking the budget. The TK850 is one of the higher-specced HDR-PRO machines and should bring a decent piece of DLP home cinema action into your living room.

Optoma UHD50X

Optoma UHD50X 4K projector $1999 $1599 at Amazon
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.

BenQ TK850i

BenQ TK850i 4K projector $1799 $1599 at Adorama
This is the smart version of the BenQ TK850 projector above. It has wireless connectivity and access to the Google Play Store and it can also receive content casts from mobile devices through Chromecast and Apple AirPlay.

Epson Home Cinema 3800
Product of the Year

Epson Home Cinema 3800 4K projector $1700 $1600 at BestBuy
This 4K HDR Epson provides almost everything you could need of an entry level machine. Its natural motion handling, well balanced colours and excellent abilities with contrast go a very long way indeed. This is an exceptional budget projector.

LG HU80KA
Five-star bargain

LG CineBeam HU80KA 4K projector $2700 $2049 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.

Samsung The Premiere LSP9T

Samsung The Premiere LSP9T $6500 $5480 at WW Stereo
This is one of the best UST projectors around at the moment. Bright enough to use for daytime viewing and, with both a smart platform and an aerial socket, it's fully kitted out for streaming services and live TV as well as any HDMI devices.
