1. Choose 1080p resolution
Like TVs, projectors have a resolution as well. Without high enough resolution, the basic picture quality conditions cannot be guaranteed. The higher the resolution, the better the overall picture quality, and the lower the resolution, the lower the picture quality. And the higher the resolution, the higher the price. You can choose the best portable projector with 1080p resolution.
For the average family, it is very good to choose 1080p projector to watch. As for the 4K advertised by many manufacturers now, it is more like a stunt. Because, there are relatively few 4K matching film sources now, so it is not recommended to buy them for the time being.
2. Choose 2,000-2,500 lumens brightness
Lumens is the main technical spec of projectors, which means brightness. Brightness is the foundation of everything. If the brightness is not enough, the resolution is useless. The higher the lumens, the lower the light requirements for the viewing space.
Low lumens of 1500-2000 lumens are sufficient if the viewing space is dark. The picture is not distorted and has good clarity. If the room is bright, 2000-2500 lumens is more suitable, and the picture effect will be clearer and more natural. But be careful, the lumen can not be too high, otherwise it will cause damage to the eyes. Generally, the best projector under 2000 can offer at least 2000 lumens of brightness.
3. Choose a contrast ratio above 200:1
ANSI contrast is one of the important parameters for choosing a projector. In simple terms, contrast is the ratio of the brightest picture to the darkest picture projected by the projector. This ratio means that the stronger the brightness contrast from black to white, the richer the color performance. The standard of contrast ratio of projector products is above 200:1. Even if the contrast ratio of projectors above 200:1 is good, the color performance of the picture will be richer.
4. Calculate the throw ratio
Projection ratio = projection distance/screen width, the smaller the ratio, the larger the projected screen width at the same projection distance. For ordinary families, the living room area is not very large, and the depth and length are relatively limited. Each projector also has its own most suitable projection distance. Therefore, it is also important to use the Projector Calculator to choose the right throw ratio that suits your home.
