With a projector you have a home cinema in no time

A home cinema is high on our wish list. We fear that the fascination was created a bit by MTV Cribs and all the fantastic villas we saw there. Well, unfortunately we will never make enough money to really buy such a gigantic house, but a person can dream. Fortunately, the technology stands for nothing nowadays and we can still realize our dream with a projector.

Buying a projector online

If you are a 'mini projector' at Bol, Amazon or Coolblue dozens of options pass by. Varying from around 30 euros to well over a thousand. There is of course a difference in quality, so it depends a bit on your budget which option you choose. The difference is often in the number of lumens, making it more important to really darken a room and of course how sharp the image is exactly. That is why we have chosen one per price range with the most positive reviews. So prepare those delicious nachos and start the movie

Home cinema under 100 euros

At the very top of the product description of this Qumax projector it says that it must be really dark in the room before the optimal result. Even if you do have a home cinema for less than 100 euros. It is a resolution of 800 x 600, but there is nothing about the maximum image size. The beamer has HDMI, VGA, AV, USB and SD connections. Furthermore, the manufacturer indicates that it will last about 30,000 hours.

Beamer the size of a can

The Anker Nebula Capsule looks very cool first of all. Of course you also pay for that, because this mini projector currently costs 370 euros. The price is therefore the biggest downside of this projector. Here too, it must be good dark in the room, but of course it is in a cinema. The beamer gives a resolution of 854 x 480 with a maximum image size of 100 inches. Furthermore, the Nebula Capsule is easily accessible wirelessly with Android and Apple devices, without downloading additional apps.

If you want to spend a little more

Then the Optima GT1080e is still a option. You are still under a thousand with this beamer, but with 688 euros it is quite expensive. However, for this you get a Full HD (1080p) home cinema with a maximum image size of 300 inches. According to the manufacturer, the GT1080e lasts about 5000 hours in normal use, so more than enough to bridge the quarantine.
