PC Advisor reviews the best projectors you can buy in the UK today.

5. Dell M900HD

  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

The Dell M900HD is incredibly portable, and very convenient if you have a suitably equipped laptop, phone or tablet. It does get pretty hot, and a few more ANSI lumens would increase its versatility. Nonetheless, it compares very favourably to other similar models on the market, and will prove a great option for mobile executives and large businesses needing a projector that can service several rooms.

4. Asus P2B review

This pretty little projector has amazing portability. The short throw lens and easy setup are excellent, and sound levels are low. As ultra-portables go, this is a very good choice. If you think you'll be frequently using it in rooms containing plenty of light, however, you'll need to look to a model with a higher brightness rating.

3. ViewSonic PJD7820HD

  • RRP: £720 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

business who need to be able to project large, sharp and extremely accurate video and HD images in a variety of conditions, the PJD7820HD has great specifications and strong performance that belies its £720 price tag.

2. BenQ W1070

  • RRP: £671 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

With images better suited to home cinema than PC output, the BenQ W1070 is a very well priced model that looks great and works well. You'll need to spend some time grappling with its controls, and we'd recommend using SmartEco on a regular basis. For those prepared to put in the effort, though, this can be a superb projector.

1. Epson EB-1945W

  • RRP: £1300 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

It's not the smallest or most easily portable of projectors, but otherwise the Epson is a fantastic choice for presenting on the move. Its brightness rating allows it to work effectively in all environments, and the superb setup tools are as good as any we've seen. Add to this the great picture quality and a slew of features that tap into the potential of wired and wireless networking to make a top-notch business projector.
