When it comes to creating the best immersive home theater experience you can at home, there are two very important components: the projector and the screen. Consumers tend to spend most of their budget on the projector but the final image quality is only as good as the screen that it is projected on. The reality is that sorting through the best home theater projector screens is not that easy; there are a number of variables to consider aside from price and don’t assume that the most expensive one will work the best in your particular room.
More than ever, people are watching movies at home. Streaming is becoming the preferred option even when movies are just released.
Home theater projector screens have evolved enormously over the past decade to cope with changes in projection technology, the use of projectors in rooms with variable ambient lighting, and the emergence of 4K and 8K content.
Size and aspect ratio are all also important considerations. Don’t be seduced by the idea of having the largest screen you can possibly afford. It has to make sense in the context of the room where you will be watching, the throw distance of the projector you selected, and the image brightness, contrast, color accuracy, and resolution of the image you are trying to achieve at home.
We gathered up for you a few screens on a budget that might catch your eye:
