If you want to save a little space in your living room or use your wall as a massive TV screen, switching to a home theatre projector can make sense. There are plenty of projector models to choose from that offer great value for money and bright, vibrant, full HD video. Here’s a look at five of the best, based on your nominations.

This list is dominated by two retailers (Epson and Optoma), and several of the models listed are not the most current releases. However, they’re still widely available through eBay and other online outlets.
An honourable mention this week to the BenQ W1070 1080p 3D Projector, which is also a great-value model.
While the projector will be the most expensive component, there’s much more to building a great home theatre than just a projector. You need a decent-sized and dark space and a good screen to project onto. A wall can work, but it won’t look as good as if you take the time to get a decent screen, or paint the wall specifically for projection.
