Best Mini Projectors 2016

Affordable mini projectors can be hard to find. While prices of mini projectors have gone down considerably, only a few offer decent quality. There is no point in getting a 50 dollar projector that has extremely poor battery life and performance. A good mini projector should have both HDMI and VGA ports to ensure maximum compatibility but if you are looking for portability, you might find only a HDMI port on it.

What should you keep in mind when shopping for the best mini projector? First is resolution – check its native resolution. Higher the resolution, more will be the crispness. If you are buying it for casual use and you are tight budget, you would not to be able to bag one with higher resolution. For viewing pictures and movies, it would do just fine -they just won’t look a crisp as mini projector with HD or full HD resolution.

Second thing to look out for are the input ports. Ports like VGA and HDMI are a bit hard to squeeze into the mini projectors but we were still able to find some that have those. If you are thinking to buy one for your android tablet or smartphone, you should go for wireless projectors that will stream movies from your phone to projector. Also if you are in market for a best mini laptop, see if the port is available on your projector, mini laptop and vice versa.

Lens life is also important especially if you are a heavy user. If you not going to use it daily, this should not concern you. However, if you are a heavy user, you should see if it will last you for atleast 5 years because finding lens for cheap mini projectors is not an easy task.
