Go big, and stay home

Owning a big TV requires a commitment of space, but being able to project onto a wall or portable screen makes more sense for those movie nights or sporting events. Ian Knott checks out one option for some big screen heaven.

Even outdoor movie nights are becoming increasingly popular, with friends and family gathering on beanbags while a favourite movie is projected onto some white sheets or painted wall. Projectors come in many shapes and sizes, and there’s one to suit any budget, but as with most electronics, you get what you pay for when it comes to quality and features.

BenQ is the number one 4K projector brand worldwide and their TK850i Wireless Streaming Projector delivers a multitude of features and premium picture quality
that’s hard to beat.

With built-in Android TV, Google Play Store, Amazon Prime, and Apple AirPlay and Chromecast compatibility you can stream all your favourite content in 4K UHD at more than 100”, with great audio too.

Or, if you’re so inclined, (and why wouldn’t you be?), you can plug in your preferred gaming console into the projector’s double HDMI ports and enjoy some huge-screen gaming goodness.

The TK850i is clever enough to compensate for varying angles so that your picture is alway straight rather than a rhombus, and the 3000 ANSI Lumens and 30,000:1 contrast ratio ensures ultimate picture clarity in all viewing conditions.

Replacement projector bulbs can be expensive, but with 4000 hours in normal mode, 10,000 in Eco and 15,000 hours in SmartEco, you’ll enjoy many movies over many years before you need to think about replacements.

At a shade under $4000, the TK850i is definitely an extravagance, but looking at the hours of family bonding time you’ll get out of it, I’d call it an extravagance well worth consideration.
