Ask Engadget: best next-gen console projector?


We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from "Eager Gamer," who has asked a question that's appeared more than a few times in our inbox over the last month. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"With next-gen consoles around the corner, could you please help me out with some of the best gaming projectors to choose from? I'm looking for something in the $2,000 - $2,500 in the price range. Thanks for any and all advice you can offer, as buying my first projector is much harder than I thought it'd be."

Never fear Easy Gamer, as we'd rather you ask us than run the risk of buying a bad gadget. On the upside, both the Xbone and PS4 will support 4K video (the Xbone will also be able to run games in 4K where supported). On the downside, the cheapest 4K projector is more than ten times your top budget.

So instead, let's look at a high quality projector that you can grab that is within budget. Sony's VPLHW30ES, for instance, offers 3D projection, a 1,300 lumens bulb an HDMI-in for $2,500, while ViewSonic's PRO9000 can be snapped up for $1,800. Still, those are just two options from us -- we're reasonably sure that the Engadget community can suggest something even more suited to your tastes.
