These portable projector deals let you enjoy big-screen video without a TV

Have you ever wanted to bring the cinema to your home? A home theater projector is a dream that many of us have but have never been able to afford. Although the best home projectors can get quite expensive, with full-sized models from Epson, Optoma, and BenQ coming in at anywhere between $200 and $2,500, there are many portable options that are great for smaller spaces and for users who desire portability.

If you don’t have the space or cash for a large HDTV, then a good portable projector is a great alternative for enjoying a big-screen experience in a small- to medium-sized room — especially if you have a killer speaker setup. We rounded up a selection of the best portable projector deals that let you live large for less.

The Best Deal

portable projector deals

For the cheapest portable projector you can find, look no further than the budget-friendly Deeplee DP300.

Use it for class and work presentations, or pair it with a portable power bank and take it on your camping trips and other adventures. This 600-lumen output model is not Full HD, so it’s not as powerful as the other projectors on our roundup, but if you want a cheap one that you can use on the go, then this is a great option. It supports HDMI, USB, and AV connections for compatibility with almost all of your video input devices, and you can also play media directly from an SD card.

Kodak Ultra mini portable projector — $190
portable projector deals

Pico projectors tend to be a bit more expensive than your standard portable projectors, owing to their considerably smaller size.

This small but mighty projector can throw an image as large as 80 inches wide, so it’s a great for traveling, camping, and other get-togethers when you’re on the go.

At $190 from Amazon, the Kodak Ultra pico projector is an affordable name-brand alternative to other pocket-sized projectors that cost more than twice as much.
