BenQ TH670 ‘best cheap projector’ BenQ TH670 ‘best cheap projector’

Looking for an affordable projector to complete your home theatre? BenQ’s TH670 projector has been named as one of the best cheap projectors by the experts at Tech Radar.

“This is the best cheap projector you're going to find,” the website’s Nick Pino writes, arguing that it’s “almost impossible” to find a better projector in terms of quality versus price.

The TH670, which comes with DLP display technology, a full 1080p resolution, 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and built-in speakers, is named as a great budget projector, delivering on all -well, most - fronts.

“Those speakers could be a hair bit more powerful, but for the price it's hard to complain too much,” says Pino.

Elsewhere, Tech Radar lists the Optoma HD141X (a “solid runner-up”) and the Acer H5380BD (“plenty capable for most folks looking for something cheap”).

As for what to look for in a cheap projector, Pino says: “The best projectors are almost always Full HD and come with built-in speakers. If you get both those features and aren’t looking to break the bank, don’t spend more than $650 or £500. You can do better for less.”
