5 Advantages of Projectors for Home Entertainment

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-10

Introduction

Projectors were traditionally used in schools, offices, and churches. Now they are becoming more popular forms of entertainment in the home. They are the top choice, whether planning a family home theater, hosting friends and coworkers for a backyard movie night, or spending a romantic evening with that special someone.

TVs are still top-rated, but more people are upgrading to projectors due to their many advantages like eye comfort, quality price, changeable screen size, portability, and more.

This blog will discuss the many benefits of using projectors for home entertainment. We will then show you some of the best projectors you can buy, regardless of whether you are setting up a home theater or planning a backyard movie night.

What Advantages Can A Home Entertainment Projector Provide?

With the latest technology in projectors and low starting prices, purchasing a projector is a no-brainer. Many modern models offer full HD resolution, high brightness, short-throw ratio, and the ultimate home entertainment experience.

Here are some key benefits of purchasing a projector:

1.  Large screens

Remember when you wished your TV was larger so you could see the images? Projectors can make that wish come true effortlessly. Most home entertainment projectors provide 120, 150, or even 200-inch screens.

Truly, screens have become a part of our daily lives, and home entertainment is no exception. The smallest projectors can portray images larger than most TVs, tablets, and phones’ image sizes. Ultra-large TVs are usually two or three times smaller than the screen size of a top-tier projector.

2. Portability

For an indoor movie night with friends and family, you may be wondering about the easy way to unmount your 50" TV screen from the wall to a bigger room or anywhere else in the home. One single mistake and you would lose an asset worth hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars. This is where projectors come in, as they are portable enough to be easily moved from room to room when compared to TVs.

Many portable projectors come with built-in batteries. You don't need to set up wiring instead just set up your projector, and voila, you've got the ultimate home theater.

The typical 50-inch TV weighs about 40 lbs and can be difficult to carry alone. Plus, you need a power source. Projectors win.

3. Weight/Size

Despite their large screen size, projectors take up minimal space in your home. If you're short on space, you can even mount the projector on your ceiling, while TVs take up a lot of space. Regarding space management, projectors allow you to have your cake and eat it.

TVs don't offer image size optimization for various displays. They have fixed screen sizes, and there is nothing you can do about it. While that might be fine for some people, most people are trying to live streamlined lives. They need home gadgets that fit into their décor and relatively small spaces. The beauty of a projector is that you can adjust it to fit any size. For example, if the size of your room changes due to moving, or simply want to use the projector from one room to another, you can adjust the screen size to fit your space.

A projector can weigh as low as 2 lbs, with the higher-sized models ranging around 20 lbs. Even at that weight, you would have no issue moving it from room to room. So if you are constantly changing apartments, it makes more sense to buy projectors. It's lightweight, and size customization makes it ideal for any home space.

4. Eye safety

A projector is always the wisest choice when caring for your eyes. Projectors protect your eyes better than any screen. (Yeah, we know about the eye comfort feature on your smartphone. It doesn't come close.)

Here's how it works: A projector reflects light to your eyes by directing the light to a screen/wall. TVs, smartphones, and tablets reflect their light directly into your eyes. When you view a projected image, you are looking at reflected light also known as the diffused reflection. When you view an image from a screen, you are looking at emitted light. Emitted light puts a lot of strain on your eyes, so your eyes experience less strain when viewing from a projector screen than directly from a TV screen. Also, diffused reflection will protect your eyes by reducing the blue light as blue light has the shortest wavelength and highest energy

Another way is the large viewing image. Since you are viewing larger images, your eyes don't have to strain much to understand what is happening. Everyone knows it is easier to read more giant letters than smaller ones.

The projector is best when you compare the benefits of lower light reflection and larger images. Your eyes are working in easy mode when you look at projected images. For anyone who cares about their eyes, projectors are the obvious choice.

5. Cost

So you've finally decided a projector is the better option regarding eye comfort, weight, size, and portability. You already know our answer, but you don't have to take our word for it. Here are the facts.

When compared by size, projectors are far cheaper than TVs. The ultra-large TVs (up to 70" inches) cost a lot more than the average projectors in the market. And most projectors can easily project a 100" or even 120" screen size. For example, the XGIMI AURA costs around $2,500 and the same goes for most in the traditional TV category.

Then you have to consider energy costs. Projectors use less energy than most energy saver smart TVs. Plus, some models come with inbuilt batteries, so you don't always have to plug them in to use them.

And when it comes to longevity, projectors can give TVs a good run for their money. Today's projectors can last more than a decade, depending on your use.

We admit that there are some dirt-cheap TVs on the market. But when you compare them by features such as weight and eye comfort, you will get a better deal with a projector.

For anyone who cares about their eyes, projectors are the obvious choice.
