The quality of projectors has rocketed in the past few years, and prices have gone down too. Cinema projectors bring the big screen experience into your home. Imagine being able to watch your team scoring a goal in 4K resolution, with detail so sharp that you can see every blade of grass on that football pitch. For images like this, you’ll need one of the finest home cinema projectors on the market.

 

Resolution beyond compare

With a projector, you can now reach 4K resolution on the big screen, all from the comfort of your sofa. We have a collection of projectors with Native 4K capabilities. However, they do come at a price! Having said that, developments are occurring all the time and such devices will become more and more accessible over time. For example, more recently, 4K UHD devices became much more affordable and are now within a realistic price bracket – the best of which we’ve included on our list below.

Depending on your priority there are several projectors to choose from. So, whether it's resolution and colour that’s most important to you, or light source and flexibility, it’s time to explore some of our best products!

 

Cheap and bright – ViewSonic PX701-4K

Perfect for those looking for a high-quality 4K home cinema experience without a hefty price tag. This ViewSonic device embraces the power of upscaling to deliver incredible 4K on-screen images under £1,000. An ideal choice for anyone looking for an entry point 4K projector to give them a taste of just how good home entertainment can be.

The best entry-level bang for your buck – Epson EH-TW7000

Jam-packed with features, upscaled 4K resolution images and high contrast – the Epson EH-TW7000 is one of our favourite projectors on the market. It offers so much at such an affordable price we really can’t understate how impressed we are with this piece of kit!

This is true cinematic quality. Just like the Optoma, this Epson gives you 4K images on the screen. For us, the in-built lens adjustment capabilities (which help with installation flexibility and seamless adjustments for different content ratios) give this projector the edge if you’re looking to get the most for your money.

  • LCD display technology

This model is our recommended step up for those looking to upgrade their home cinema projector in 2022. You’ll get a much better contrast ratio to showcase your favourite thrillers and dark moody content, while the support for HDR10, HLG HDR formats and 18GBPs 4K signals takes things even further.

What Hifi named this the best projector in its £1,500 – £3,000 price category and we couldn’t agree more – definitely one to consider investing in, in 2022.

Mid Range Native 4K - Sony VPL-VW590ES



Sony dominates in the Native 4K space, so it’s no surprise that all three of our choices are from Sony! This product is part of their new home cinema line up. It offers 300 Lumens more brightness than the VW270ES and includes a state-of-the-art Sony X1 processor for projectors, giving you images with breath-taking clarity.

A quick note on what the X1 can do for you … essentially this is the projector version of the BRAVIA TV video processor. The chip optimises the display based on the content through clever use of signal analysis.

It knows what’s on your screen and will adjust the display accordingly, making the dark areas darker and the bright images even more vibrant in accordance with the specific scene.

  • SXRD display technology
  • 1,800 ANSI Lumens
  • 4096 x 2160 (4K) resolution
