1. Epson EH-TW6600 (£1249)
This is a project which offers astonishing value for money. There are more sophisticated alternatives on the market, but this little beauty competes with projectors twice its price, delivering rich, crisp and colourful visuals with minimal operating noise, 2500 lumens and 70,000:1 contrast.
If, however, money is no object, the Sim2 Superlumis is a truly incredible piece of technology which must be seen to be believed. It’s 350W lamp delivers a whopping 5000 lumens, with ALPHAPATH technology ensuring the images it projects are ridiculously, eye-poppingly, unbelievably bright, beautiful and almost touchable.

This is an extremely capable projector at a very realistic price. This piece of kit delivers in every entertainment context, from gaming sessions to movie nights.
