Movie nights at home? With the projectors currently available in the market, we can have the quality of the cinema in the comfort of the home.
Nowadays, since every day is busy and stressful, what really feels good is to be able to come home and transform a simple living room into a place of leisure and relaxation for the whole family. For that, all you have to do is buy a magnificent projector to make it a reality, and thus satisfy the desires of the little ones and the big ones.
However, because we know that this choice is not always easy, since there is an extensive market for projectors, we've made a selection of the 10 best 1080p projectors, so you can be aware of all the features and pros and cons.
All so that when it comes time to choose, you know which one to invest in.
With this magnificent projector we can obtain a true cinema experience, since it is possible to obtain an image projection with an impressive 120", turning any ordinary room into a real cinema room, allowing guaranteed fun for the whole family!
Besides the native 1080p Full HD resolution, we must highlight its 1600 ANSI lumens and 2.07 million pixels, features that guarantee a clear and detailed image of the contents you are watching. Plus, with its Advanced Video Enhance technology, it allows ultra-low latency for gaming, which is perfect for gamers. And with its native Android TV system, you can also choose from over 5000 apps, so there is no shortage of content.
The only downside of this beautiful device is the fact that it cannot natively run the Netflix app, which is the most widely used streaming service in the world. In any case, the Wemax Vogue Pro also has other outstanding features, such as Intelligent Screen Alignment and Intelligent Obstacle Avoidance, which allows you to display the screen adapted to the desired surface, without any obstacles in between, as well as with the help of auto focus. Its sound system, meanwhile, is quite capable, offering dual 10W built-in DOLBY Audio and DTS-HD speakers.
If you want a best seller, one that will fill you up and not blow your budget, this is definitely an option to consider.

With a cute design, it has 2200 ANSI Lumens, an image projection that goes up to 200", two 8W speakers and, of course, Android TV. If you want something reliable and that will last for several years, this is the solution.
3. Nebula Cosmos
From the Nebula brand there is this projector. With 900 ANSI lumens, the Nebula Cosmos projects an image up to 120" and features a hybrid registration range (HLG) that upscales non-HDR content to enable sharper, clearer viewing.

For your projection, you can expect images with a magnification of up to 100", supported by a 360° sound system. In terms of specifications, this is a 1080p Full HD projector that is HDR compatible, thus ensuring vivid color. There is no Android TV here, but rather the brand's own operating system, Tizen, which promises not to disappoint.
5. Epson EH-TW750
This Epson projector has 3400 lumens and a good quality/price ratio. It can project a screen up to 300" and has 3LCD technology, which makes it produce sharp images, without the "rainbow" effect.

With a brightness of 500 ANSI lumens, it is capable of side projection, has autofocus and support for HDR 10 and HLG, so that the image is bright and well detailed.
