Our family loves movie night and nothing enhances movie night quite like a projector. The ability to take the movie out to the back yard or project onto an entire wall is a fantastic bonus.
I’ve had a few projectors over the years and I currently have a Meauro FHD 1080p Portable mini projector and it’s the best I’ve had by far. One of the coolest things about it is it runs on the android operating system so I can download anything from the Google Play store. That’s particularly nice when we watch movies in the backyard because I don’t have to also take another streaming device to plug into it.
The Meauro is compact and easy to carry around but the picture quality is fantastic. It has a built in speaker so you don’t have to hook up an external speaker but if you want a deeper bass sound it is easy to plug into its aux port. It also has usb and hdmi input so you can hook up video games or other streaming devices if you want. Who doesn’t love playing video games on the side of your house!
One other feature that I really appreciate is the tripod attachment spot on the bottom. So often it’s hard to get a table or stand set up just right outside but with the ability to screw it onto a tripod, you really don’t have to worry about that.
If you’re doing a $10K renovation of a dedicated theater room, you might want to spend a little more for a projector. But if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to step up family movie night, you’ll have a hard time finding a better option.
