When it comes to watching movies, turning on a weekend football game, or playing video games, not much beats a huge, high-quality display. Thankfully, you don’t need to break the bank on expensive and heavy LED televisions – projectors can be used to create a theater-style display in your home at a fraction of the cost. Projector technology has advanced tremendously in recent years, so much so that many are capable of matching the screen size and resolution of top-of-the-line televisions. And best of all, many high-quality projectors are available for less than $100.
Here, we bring you 10 best projectors for under $100 we could find. Our recommendations are based on pouring through hundreds of projector reviews and comparing features head-to-head, and the result is a list of projectors that stand out for their combination of technology and price point.
This guide also offers a little something for everyone – there are projector picks for those on an even tighter budget, those looking for the most cost-efficient, feature-packed projector, and those who just want an all-around performer at an attractive price. The table below summarizes our picks, and we’ve included detailed product descriptions for all 10 projectors.
