A 65-inch TV screen is nice but what if you could watch movies and binge-watch your favorite Netflix shows on a screen twice that size? Or maybe you already have a projector you’ve been wanting to upgrade. Either way, with the holidays fast approaching it’s a great time to step back and assess your TV/home theater setup. We’ve compiled snapshots of six top performing projectors that, with the right screen, can make all your big-screen dreams come true. And once you make the switch to a mega screen you might never step foot in a movie theater again — assuming, of course, your new projector is hitched to a first-rate home theater sound system.

Visit our Projector Reviews and Projector Screen reviews pages to see all Sound&Vision reviews in the projection category. Also don’t forget to visit our Top Picks page where you can search for the cream of the crop in all categories, including prospective AV receivers and home theater speaker systems to mate with your new projection setup. For even more on the ins and outs of video projection, see Projector Primer: Closer Than It Looks.
