Flatscreen tvs are getting slimmer and sleeker every year, but they can still be quite an eyesore. If you’re tired of staring at that giant black rectangle, it might be time to consider a projector! They’ve come a long way in the past few years, and might be the perfect solution to your tv dilemma. Here are 5 reasons that might put you on team projector.
More Screen Bang for Your Buck
For just a couple hundred dollars, you can get a projector that will show HD content on a screen that is 120” wide! That’s quite a deal, when you consider that a television that size would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
No Giant Black Rectangle
If you choose a ceiling mounted screen, you can hang it over artwork or shelving and just pull it down when you need it. Screens are very low profile, and if you get a white mount, they blend right into the ceiling.
Projectors can go anywhere, so you can bring it to a friend’s house for a big game, or just out to the backyard for an al fresco movie. You can create some very special viewing environments pretty much anywhere you’d like.
My dad has a pretty impressive television, and I get a little nervous when the kids throw balls or play rough around it. If something cracks that screen, the whole thing is ruined. With projectors, the unit can either be ceiling mounted or put on a shelf out of the way. No fragile parts for kids to ruin!
Most projectors are compatible with mainstream tech, like Roku or AppleTV, and they can also easily connect to your surround sound or wireless speakers. For those who love smart home stuff, or just gadgets in general, they offer a lot of flexibility.
