Things to consider when buying a projector
Projectors can connect to set top boxes, Blu-ray players and streaming devices, as well as laptops, tablets, phones and games consoles. Enjoy enhanced audio by connecting sound bars, speakers or headphones.
Any HDMI device can be connected to a projector with a HDMI port - this includes set top boxes, Blu-ray players, streaming devices (like Chromecast, Fire TV or Apple TV), games consoles or laptops.
Most projectors can read content from USB drives, which is perfect for displaying photos or movies from your portable hard drives or streaming devices like Chromecast or Fire TV. Some projectors can be charged from a powered USB A or B port, or let you power up a phone or tablet while you watch or present.
The 3.5mm jack is just like the headphone port on your laptop or phone. It lets you connect compatible desktop speakers, a portable speaker or pair of headphones.
Some projectors with Bluetooth can wirelessly connect to compatible speakers or headphones. Enhance your home cinema experience by connecting to a wireless sound bar or speaker. Watch a film without disturbing anyone by connecting a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones.
