How to Pick a Home Theater Projector


How to Pick a Home Theater Projector. Skip the expensive movie tickets and outrageously
priced snacks and put that money toward your very own home theater. You will need Viewing room Cables Internet
access and sales staff. Step 1. Choose between an LCD and a DLP projector. LCD delivers better color saturation and a
sharper image, but the image can be pixilated and have weak black and contrast levels. The DLP is smaller and produces excellent
black and contrast levels, but can produce a visible artifact on the screen known as
the “rainbow effect.” Step 2. Consider the projector’s room to determine
the amount of brightness you want, measured in lumens and ranging from 700-2,000. If you have a dedicated home theater with
controlled lighting, 1,000 lumens will do. If your room has some ambient light, get at
least 1,200, and if your space has a high amount of ambient light, go with 2,000 lumens. Step 3. Consider your viewing habits, which will help
you determine a lamp life. Standard projectors have between 2,000 and
4,000 hours of lamp life. Replacement bulbs can cost between $200 and
$500, so if you’re going to use it a lot, consider a longer lamp life. Step 4. Understand resolution so you can get the best
image for your needs. Codes like 420p, 720p, and 1080p are indicators
of the projector’s resolution. The higher you go, the better the resolution. If you’re just content with watching DVDs
through your projector, 480p will be fine, but if you’re projecting HDTV, consider 720p
or 1080p for the best image. Step 5. Choose the cables that you will use to connect
your projector. Your projector should have a at least one
component video input. HD projectors typically have either an HDMI
or DVI connection. Step 6. Read online reviews to see what other people
say about different models, and talk to sales staff at your local electronics store before
purchasing. Once you’ve decided on a projector, bring
it home and fire it up! Did you know In 1891, Thomas Edison patented
the Kinetograph, the first motor-powered camera that could capture motion.

  2. @gameoflordfuckerhalo Yeah im with Mitro dood, let people FIRST! if it makes 'em happy, what if i removed something YOU enjoyed doing?

  3. Hi i been looking to buy a projector an i really liked the optoma hd66 and the epson 710hd, wich one do you think its the best?

    Thank you

  4. Optoma, in my opinion would be better. read any review and its always positive and the prices are decent too..id say optoma, quality is almost guaranteed.

  5. Yeah XD that was 2 years ago, I was dumb. And that's also when YouTube finally started to make full HD videos. Oh, and sorry for the thumbs down, I missed the reply button 🙁

  6. I have a Mitsubishi HC5000 and it has made it through 7 years without a hiccup. It is LCD located in a dedicated room and I've never had a problem with blacks or colors. Should you want to make a purchase do your homework some of the more expensive models play no better in a room not suitable for home theater. Start with the room (size, lighting and seating) , then gather your needed specifications and always think ahead (4k, 8k and sound system). This video is correct.

  7. Lacks a lot of information… Your distance is important. If you will be using in bedroom then you need 1280×800 becuz the lower res ones take away a lot of the image with the black borders.

    2. iF YOU will be using 3d then get a HIGH lumens projector because the lumens will drop by half or more with 3d glasses and the actual 3d.
