A Researcher’s Opinion On The Best Digital Projector Part 2
A home user looking to build a home entertainment center will likely select a projector that has lots of power in terms of brightness. This is likely a DLP projector which produces sharp and clear video images and which is also 3D and HD ready with a long life lamp or bulb. Such devices with good video output often have as high as 2000 to 4000 lumens of brightness. Lumens of brightness is a representation of the quality of projection a device will produce. The higher this number the better the device will project images and video in natural light or room lights.
Your quest to get the best digital device will also involve a consideration of the type of bulb the device uses. Projectors are notoriously disappointing when owners show less care and concern of the maintenance of the bulb. When mishandled projector bulbs will easily blow-out way ahead of their time. The new technology called DLP has made it possible for manufacturers to bring to the market devices that have no lamps. Apart from having no lamps the technology also eliminates the need for a filter which increases device maintenance and must be cleaned time and again.
If your intention is to use the device in a place that you know is dusty or outside at night which attracts insects into the device, you are better off right from the start making an effort to find a device that has no bulb. The DLP technology that eliminates bulbs is being used by fewer manufacturers and finding such a projector might require effort and spending a little bit more. This however will be common place in the next few years.
Finally price should be your last consideration when looking for the best projector. To be frank a projector is not considered best on the basis of price. It is best on the basis of it matching your needs and purposes. Nevertheless, once you known the model and brand of your best projector you may do further online research to look for a bargain. Massive stores such as Amazon often have very good discounts for projectors and a whole lot of other electronics. It is certainly cheaper to buy your projector online. This gives you a greater chance of getting a meaningful discount.
The following are some few things to keep in perspective when going for your best projector;
1. Your needs and requirements first.
2. The type of bulb technology the projector uses.
3. The functions of the projector itself.
4. The manufacturer and brand/model of projector
5. Lastly the price of the projector.
