There are still plenty of people out there who think home theater projectors are only meant for dark basements or media rooms in mansions. I’m here to tell you that’s not the case at all. In fact, you can spend about the same amount of money on a high-quality home theater projector as you would on a high-end Sony TV, but you’ll end up with a picture up to 120-inches in size that will fit any room perfectly and look amazing in the dark or in bright light.

I’ve tested several BenQ home theater projectors in the past and I’ve been fairly impressed with them all. That said, I’ve never experienced anything quite like the new BenQ TK850 True 4K HDR-PRO Home Entertainment Projector. Holy. Moly.

The 3,000-lumen lamp is wonderfully bright and crisp, and the picture looks amazing even on a wall. Get a good-quality home theater projector screen instead, however, and you’ve got a crisp 4K picture that blows away most LED TVs. It’s fantastic for movies, sports, and even for gaming, and you’ll wonder why it took you so long to dump your TV and switch to a projector. This model has a list price of just over $1,800 on Amazon, but you can pick it up today for $1,699 even. A decent 80-inch TV costs about three times that much, and this puppy can go up to 120 inches!
