We'll level with you: we scoured the internet for the best deals on 4K projectors, UST projectors and portables. We worked hard – Black Friday means deals galore, but we want to help you buy quality as well as save you some dollars. 

We've picked through the prices across all retailers on projectors from the likes of Epson, LG, Optoma, JVC, BenQ and more, and selected only the offers that we deem most worthy of your time. 

Below, you'll find offers on some of the very best projectors on the market that we've tried and tested, but also our pick of the alternative projector deals on offer. If we haven't had the pleasure of putting it through its paces, we'll use our knowledge of the market to let you know what we think of the deal.

Nebula Capsule portable projector $350

Nebula Capsule portable projector $350 $250 at Amazon (save £100)
When we reviewed it, 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 – and this deal certainly adds to its appeal.

Epson Home Cinema 1080 HD projector $750

Epson Home Cinema 1080 HD projector $750 $649 at Crutchfield (save $101)
Not one we've tested, but the 1080 is an upgrade on the 1060. There's a boost to brightness and contrast, up to 3600 lumens from 3100, and now stated at 16,000:1 instead of 15,000:1. It sounds well worth the small extra spend to us.

Samsung The Premiere LSP7T $3500

Samsung The Premiere LSP7T $3500 $2500 at Samsung (save $1000)
