Best portable projectors for home cinemas

Enhance your movie nights with these blockbuster devices

Watching films on a television or laptop is so 2019, with avid viewers now taking their movie nights to the next level by investing in at-home projectors.

Here, we pick out five of the portable options to enhance your watching experience. 

LG CineBeam HU80KSW 

It isn’t as small as some projectors, but this premium-priced LG model has a useful handle for carrying, and can be easily stashed away. And with its 4K HDR picture and stereo sound, it is “more or less an entire home cinema system”, What Hi-Fi? says. It’s also very easy to set up, and projects images that are bright without being garish.

ViewSonic M1 Mini Plus 

Small enough to carry around in your pocket, this colourful projector doesn’t have the capabilities of more expensive models, but works just fine in a dark room.

Anker Nebula Capsule II 

The size of a soft drinks can, Anker’s Capsule is especially easy to use and has three hours of battery. It also has built-in Android TV, giving access to loads of apps that users might not have on their smartphones.

£549; amazon.co.uk

Optoma ML750ST 

Perfect for small spaces, this “short-throw” projector can be set up right in front of your screen. It offers great resolution for the price, although the audio is rather “weedy”, says Expert Reviews

£535; amazon.co.uk

Acer C250i 

This great-value projector’s unusual shape makes it very flexible: it can be rested at various angles and used vertically or horizontally. But the main selling point is the sharpness of the images projected, and the device also has a good battery life.
