I traveled to CES 2023 mostly to check out new TVs, but as I wandered through the huge, crowded halls, I kept coming across a related product category: projectors.

The best 4K projectors are now available in a variety of flavors including long throw, ultra short throw and portable versions, and all of them were represented at CES. Honestly, I was surprised by the number of projector brands on display at the show. We clearly live in an era of big screen TV, with no shortage of options for getting cinema-sized images at home.

While I haven’t seen all of the projectors at CES, I’ve had the chance to spend quality time with most of the projectors below. The range is equally weighted between DLP based ultra short throw and portable models, with JVC’s long throw DLP projector thrown in for good measure for its gaming capabilities – and affordable price.
