The portable projector market has grown exponentially over the past several years.

The benefits of this new technology are far reaching; not only are smaller projectors portable, but they are also perfect for business presentations and activities. According to data from NPD, the number of portable projectors sold in the U.S. increased 50% in 2017 and 40% in 201

DBPOWER Native 1080P WiFi Projector, Upgrade 9500L Full HD Outdoor Movie Projector, Support 4D Keystone Correction, Zoom, PPT, 300

DBPOWER Native 1080P WiFi Projector

by DBPOWER

[4-Point Keystone Correction & Zoom Function] The biggest feature of our RD828 1080p mini projector is the innovative 4-point keystone correction, an upgraded 4d keystone correction. 4d keystone can only adjust the vertical or horizontal directions, while the 4p keystone realizes that the 4 corners of the picture can all be adjusted separately, more practical, convenient and user-friendly. With zoom function, it can shrink the image size to -50% using the remote without moving the projector.

The DBPOWER RD828 wireless projector delivers a surprisingly bright, colorful image for a 1080p model, and it's especially bright for its size. With its 9500 lumens, it's our highest-brightness pick, and it's bright enough to watch a 4K movie or TV show on a 100-inch screen. The projector is good at both indoor and outdoor use, but you'll give up some brightness if you put it outdoors. The projector's built-in speaker is loud, but it's a much better choice for watching movies than for presentations. The projector's image quality is bolstered by its 1920 by 1080 pixel resolution, which delivers a crisp image without jagged edges or pixelation. The projector has a simple, intuitive user interface, and it supports multiple input methods, including HDMI, USB, and AV. Our only complaint is that the projector doesn't offer a native 4K resolution, so it won't be as sharp or bright as some of our top picks.

Mini Projector, Xinteprid WiFi Movie Projector 7500L with Synchronize Smartphone Screen, Portable Video Projector for iPhone 1080P HD Supported 200

xinteprid Mini Projector

by xinteprid

Full HD 1080P Supported & 100% PerformanceThis wifi projector has the powerful parameters: supported resolution:1920*1080, Aspect Ratio: 16:9/4:3, 24-bit true-color support and 200" screen. Bringing you an excellent spectating experience like an IMAX to adjust projector distance to get 200" huge projection size with 14.5ft!

The Xinteprid 7500L is the best mini projector we've ever tested. It's bright, easy to use, and has an excellent image. It's also significantly less expensive than its closest competitors, which also makes the Xinteprid a good choice for budget-conscious buyers. The Xinteprid does the best job of displaying video from a laptop or smartphone we tested, and it's the only one we tested that is compatible with Amazon's Fire TV streaming device, so you can use it to play movies from those services. Unfortunately, the Xinteprid doesn't play movies from Netflix, which is the only streaming service we tested that doesn't support casting. The Xinteprid's biggest drawback is its short 15-foot projection distance. That short range may be acceptable for occasional use, but it's limiting if you intend on using this projector for a movie or video conference. The Xinteprid's other shortcomings are minor: It lacks an automatic keystone adjustment, and it uses an IR remote control rather than a built-in IR emitter, so you'll need an IR receiver to use it with your TV. The Xinteprid offers very good image quality, and its built-in speaker is loud enough to fill a large room. It's also the only mini projector we tested that has a built-in speaker, so it's a good buy for buyers who plan on using it for video conferences or presentations.

The Mini Projector is also surprisingly easy to set up and use. The remote is well-designed, and the remote's buttons are clearly labeled, so it's quick to learn how to use. The projector's built-in speaker produces decently good sound, and because the projector uses LED bulbs, it's much brighter than other projectors we tested that use conventional bulbs.

Enhanced LED lighting system provides 3800 lux brightness, 720P native resolution, 2000:1 contrast ratio and 50000 hours LED lamp life, giving you worry free using experience compared with the chunky ones on the market.

The L4200 is an outstanding value, delivering excellent quality in a projector that's small enough to tote around anywhere you go. The projector's dual speakers are surprisingly powerful, and while the projector's image quality is not quite as good as that of our best pick, the L4200 is brighter than all the projectors we tested, so you'll still get a clear picture in bright light. The L4200 also doesn't have any built-in speakers, so you need an external sound system, but there are plenty of good portable speaker options (including ones that work with the Fire TV Stick). The L4200's image quality is good enough for most uses, including watching movies and TV shows at home, but we found that some movies, including older movies, looked better on a TV. If you're going to be using the projector for movies, we recommend using a TV or monitor, as the L4200 is best suited for watching videos. The L4200's image is best viewed from about 4 to 10 feet, and it has a 200-inch screen size, so it's a good fit for most living rooms. The L4200 is also less expensive than any of the projectors we tested, making it a good choice for your home or office.

Acrojoy WiFi Mini Projector

by Acrojoy

Dual Speakers & 240" Big Screen: The built-in two speakers feature SRS sound system, so powerful to provide a great auditory sense experience without external speakers. Besides, this wireless projector offers the watching size from 35" to 240" with projection distance from 3.56ft to 24.4ft (6ft is the recommended viewing distance), for enjoying big-screen home theater with your friends and family.

The ACROJOY 9000 Lumens Video Projector is an affordable 1080p projector that's perfect for watching movies and TV shows on a big TV or projector screen. The projector is bright, and the images are sharp, but it has a few notable shortcomings. The projector has a relatively dim 3300 lumens of brightness, and its native resolution (1080p) is average for projectors. The built-in speakers are weak, and they need a subwoofer or external speakers to get loud enough for a party. The ACROJOY 9000 Lumens Video Projector has decent built-in audio, but it's a bit disappointing that it doesn't come with a built-in subwoofer. This projector also has a relatively short throw distance, so you'll need to be close to a wall or screen to use it, and this limit its outdoor use. The ACROJOY 9000 Lumens Video Projector has few extra features, and it doesn't have HDMI inputs, which limits its support. Overall, it's a good choice for casual movie watchers and gamers, but it's not ideal for gamers who plan to use the projector at very long distances.
