Key Features

Projector Brightness

This is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

3D

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Handheld Remote Control

This indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

Projector running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per week. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the projector and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving projectors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these projectors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
