Black Friday 4K projector deals are getting better every year and this year’s deals could represent your best opportunity to upgrade to the biggest picture possible.
Of course, the best 4K projectors are getting cheaper outside of sales, which means that there’s plenty of scope for them to become even more affordable during Black Friday sales. And, as part of the expected wider Black Friday projector deals, the price cuts on 4K models could hopefully see other models be in line for a substantial discount. So if you’ve been waiting for a 4K model, you might want to see what other options crop up during this time.
That’s because the market is so varied that the best projectors for gaming, and the best projectors for PS5 and Xbox Series X, can really give the best gaming TVs and best TV for PS5 and Xbox Series X a run for their money. Yes, the best 4K 120Hz TVs might still offer something that the projector field can’t and the best QLED TVs and best OLED TVs do offer something else too, but there’s no doubt that the gap has never been closer – and Black Friday 4K projector deals this year will prove it.
But remember, display discounts will spread far and wide this year with some of the best coming in the form of Black Friday PS5 TV deals, as well as broader Black Friday PS5 deals and Black Friday Xbox Series X deals.

When will the Black Friday 4K projector deals start?This year’s big day is Friday, November 26.

Black Friday 4K projector deals: what we expect to see
(Image credit: Future)Projectors in the 4K realm are, indeed, some of the most expensive by default. It’s no accident that we’re seeing the same price differences in projectors as we were once used to in TVs: the higher the resolution the more money you need to spend. And while that’s still the case, generally, the tech is getting more affordable. The fact remains that the Black Friday 4K projector deals are the best placed to get the most for your money, year in, year out.
We will be seeing some great 4K models from the top table drop to record low prices this year, and offer immense bang for buck value. The likes of Epson, BenQ, ViewSonic, and Optoma will all get in on the act with their most premium models having their time in the deals sun.
One range in particular that we’re keeping a close eye on, however, is the Premiere range from Samsung. These models caused a wave when they first came out in late 2020 by being able to throw a full 4K picture from an incredibly short distance while maintaining their Samsung pedigree and premium quality.
This year’s Black Friday 4K projector deals will be the first of such sales periods that the Premieres will have experienced, and while they will still be an Investment, the chances for lowest ever prices are strong. The LSP9T model – the top projector – has come down to nearly $5,000 once this year, in June, from its lofty $6,500 listing price and we’d put good money on seeing that price again – and perhaps one even lower…
Today’s best dealsIf you can’t wait, then we’re likely to see some early price reductions come through pretty as of right now – and we’ve rounded up a few models below for you to peruse. These prices automatically update themselves, so can provide you with an excellent reference point, and perhaps even reveal a deal worth taking advantage of before the sales madness kicks in properly…
