Even equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, you can easily connect various Bluetooth speakers. If you want to use another speaker, you can connect via Bluetooth to make your party more enjoyable.

The image quality of the Dxyiitoo 2021 projector is quite good, especially at the top end of the brightness range. The images are detailed and clear, and we didn't notice any color washout or oversaturation. The projector's brightness is good enough for outdoor use, but we found that it didn't project as well outdoors as it did in our test room. The projector's audio is also quite good, and it's loud enough to use in a moderately-sized room. The projector's remote control is compact and has a good range of buttons. The projector comes with several installation options: you can mount it on the ceiling, mount it on a wall, or stick it on a tabletop. The projector also includes a remote control, which is convenient if you don't want to use the included remote or don't want the projector's buttons visible. The projector's 3-year warranty is unusually long, and it's backed up by Dxyiitoo's customer service.

Compatible multiple DevicesMovie Projector with 2*HDMI, USB,VGA,AV port, the 1080P mini projector can easily connect with TV, Smartphone, External speakers, Tablet, Laptop, Video Games.etc.

The HOWWOO Native 1080P HD 100" Projector with 8500L Brightness is an impressive all-around projector, offering good image quality, excellent brightness, and a sharp 100-inch image on a 100-inch screen. The projector's 10,000:1 contrast ratio delivers rich, true-to-life colors, and images look excellent even in bright daylight. The projector's brightness is high enough that it's suitable for watching movies outside (in bright sunlight, at least), and its image is so sharp that you can still make out text on a blank wall 100 feet away. The projector's image quality is especially good in dark rooms, which is important if you plan on watching late-night movies in your living room. The Native 1080P HD Projector with 8500L Brightness also produces relatively clean, muffled audio, and it features built-in speakers that produce good sound for watching movies without a separate sound system. The projector's remote is easy to understand and use, and it includes a microphone that you can use to talk to the projector, which is helpful for movie-goers with small children. This projector is also easy to use, with a straightforward setup process that's mostly intuitive. The projector's built-in speakers are loud enough to fill a medium-sized room, but if you're planning on watching movies outside, you'll need an external sound system. The projector's image quality and color reproduction are on par with most big-screen projectors. Its biggest downside is its relatively short power cord, which extends only about 3 feet.

RCA RPJ133 Home Theater Projector

by RCA

ROKU STREAMING STICK: Our Home Theater Projector is powered by Americas No.1 Streaming Platform, Roku. The included Roku Streaming Stick provides excellent HD streaming. Because of its modest size, it is easy to use when traveling. The bundled voice remote features buttons for controlling power and volume, as well as searching and doing other things using Roku Voice.

The RPJ133 is capable of showing movies, videos, and video games in impressive quality. It achieves excellent color accuracy and brightness, has a sharp, high contrast display, and can project images at 100 inches or more, which is enough for a large living room or bedroom. The projector's sound, however, is disappointing, and it uses a standard 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll need a dedicated speaker system or speakers to use with it. The projector's automatic keystone correction feature also makes it difficult to align the image, so it's a good option for experienced home theater buffs, but beginners will likely find its technical features intimidating. The projector's battery lasts about 2 hours, and it provides up to 15 hours of run time in ECO mode. The included remote control is responsive, and the app is easy to use. The RPJ133 is also an excellent value, though it costs more than some similar projectors.

Upgrade Performance: YG300Pro upgraded in 2021, support 1080P full HD and the natural resolution have increased to 800*480. Improve the brightness and color saturation of the projected picture to make the picture clearer and more comfortable (dark room is better).

The PVO Projector is a great value for the price. It produces bright, clear images, and the built-in speaker is loud enough for a small room. The 70-inch image is approximately 6 inches from the screen, so closer seating may be better. The projector comes with a remote control, but it's small and can be difficult to operate, so we recommend using a wireless keyboard or controller. The projector is powered by a power adapter, so a rechargeable battery pack is not included. It's also worth noting that some of the images we tried were slightly pixelated, and the image isn't as sharp as a dedicated projector. The projector runs for a long period on a single charge, though, and it's easy to carry in a pocket or bag.

The Jimwey Mini Movie Projector is easy to set up and use, and it produces bright, clear images with a surprisingly wide viewing angle. It's compact and light enough that you can easily take it on the go, and it's small enough to fit in a purse or backpack. And, thanks to its 1080 * 720p native resolution, the Jimwey Mini Movie Projector can project 1920x1080p full HD video. The projector also has a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, which makes it easy to see images in bright rooms, and it has a 5000-lumen 3W output, so it can produce bright, clear images even in well-lit rooms. The Jimwey Mini Movie Projector is also water resistant, so it's safe to use outdoors. The projector's 2000-lumen and 1080 * 720p resolution make it a better choice than the 2000-lumen mini projector we tested, which can only project 854 * 480p. The Jimwey Mini Movie Projector's 10,000-hour lamp life is also longer, and it boasts up to 50,000 hours, so it should last many years, which is better still than the 9,000-hour lifetime of the mini projector we tested.

TOPVISION Projector

BUILT-IN HIFI STEREO SPEAKER: High clear stereo speakers provide powerful, crystal sound. You can also hook up an external speaker with a 3.5mm audio output for better sound. To reduce the noise, we have equipped it with the latest dual-fan system for its even better performance and immersive audio experience. Power voltage: 100V-240V 50/60Hz.

If portability is your primary consideration, the TOPVISION T6 is hard to beat, thanks to its small size, light weight, and long battery life. Its 4,000-lumen brightness and 100-inch screen are OK, but its resolution is mediocre. And its inability to display PowerPoint or other office presentations is a big drawback. It's best used as a portable home projector or for watching movies in a small room. It's much brighter and more colorful than our previous pick, the Optoma UHD501, and the T6's 100-inch screen is plenty big enough for watching video or playing games on a large bed, on a couch, or on the floor. The projector's audio is better than the HD501's; the T6's 2.1-channel speakers provide decent sound for movies and games. It's important to note that the T6 doesn't have a remote, and there's no 720p or 1080p HD resolution, so it's best used for watching movies or playing games. It's also a little cheaper than the HD501, and it's smaller and lighter, so it's more suitable for traveling.

The projector also has a good 3D effect, which is distractingly good. But it also comes with a HDMI port, so you can connect it to a game console or a computer. The projector is also compatible with most smartphones, including iOS and Android devices, so you can project your photos and videos from your phone. The projector comes with 2W speakers, but the sound isn't the best, so we recommend you connect your speakers to the projector.
