Test results for 8 home theatre projectors priced $1999 to $4700

High-definition TV screens are all the rage these days and seem to be getting bigger by the month, but if you want a real home theatre experience even the biggest LCD and plasma screens can’t hold a candle to a high-definition projector. In a home theatre, size matters, and a projector can give you a picture several times the size of even the biggest TV ‘box’, and with quality to match.

Through rigorous tests carried out in our labs, the projectors were awarded scores for:

  • Ease of use
  • Picture quality
  • Energy use

Please note: this information was current as of August 2009 but is still a useful guide to today's market.
