When will the Black Friday projector deals start?Mark Friday, November 26 in your calendar as that’s when this year’s biggest and best Black Friday projector deals are going to happen. But, as always, some retailers will fire out the deals and price cuts earlier and earlier, meaning that we should all be on the lookout from mid-to-late October onwards. We always reckon the best deals won’t appear until the big day itself, but this isn’t an air-tight fact, so it always pays to be in deals hunting mode from October to capitalise on any deals that do come about.
Should I wait for the Black Friday projector deals?Given that some of the best projectors can have steep price tags, and we all want to get premium goods for the best possible price, the answer to this question is an emphatic ‘yes’. The prices will absolutely be at their best when the deals kick in properly in the week of Black Friday and we’d say it’s very unlikely that anything now will be beat the big discounts coming at the end of November.
Black Friday projector TV deals: what to expect
(Image credit: Samsung)Trying to pick out specifics can get tricky given the projector market’s size and diversity now, but the flip side of this means that there is likely to be something for everyone, no matter what you’re looking for. However, when highlighting a few models or brands, we can see the price cuts we’re likely to get this year (hopefully).
At the premium end of the market, the most famous and well-known name in projector land is likely to be the Samsung Premiere range. This only consists of two models (the LSP9T and LSP7T), but both have made waves in the home projector market since their 2020 release. The slightly more affordable model, the LSP7T, regularly stays around its list price of $3,500 but could see at least an equal lowest-ever price when the Black Friday projector deals start – it has seen a $500 discount multiple times in the past year, and went down to its lowest ever price of $2,800 during Prime Day in June. Given some more time between now and the projector’s release, and the general trend of electronic items’ prices, matching this price, at least, seems a decent shout.
(Image credit: BenQ)Slightly older models that still very much stand up like the BenQ TH671ST might be worth considering too given the value to be had if a deal comes around. This model has seen plenty of price cuts since its release but for some reason, we fancy seeing a big cut on this one as BenQ looks to its newer models – it’s been down to around $600 before so why not $500 this year? It usually retails at the $750 mark so this would be a third off!
In the portable market, the Anker Nebula II is a highly regarded model but still something that has a sizeable price tag given its diminutive size. A near-$600 portable projector, its lowest ever price was around $400, back in October last year, and so a similar price this year would be very welcome, and not out of the question. Could be just in time for some Christmas visual projecting!
And, as always, this year’s going to be the first discount period for a lot of newer models. That means we’re bound to see great deals on them and even have a good chance of seeing the lowest-ever prices. Models like the BenQ X1300i, the slightly older BenQ GV1 portable projector, and the Epson EF-12 are good calls for this.
Today’s best dealsIf you can’t wait and need to see what the latest prices are right now on some top projectors, then we have your back. Our price-finding tech always roots out the latest and best prices, no matter where you are, and below you can find exactly that for a few select models. While it’s probably best for the Black Friday projector deals to come around properly, you might find a great price right now. Weirder things have happened, after all.
How do I choose a good projector?As with TVs, monitors, and, well, anything in the tech space nowadays, there is an unbelievable amount of choice when it comes to quality projectors. However, the way to choose a good projector is to be ruthless with yourself about how you’re going to use the projector. This will help funnel down your options and direct your research when the time comes.
For example, if you need something small, portable, and fine to throw in a backpack, then you can ignore all the high-end, potentially bulky 4K and top-tier units (obviously), and if you’re looking at something to genuinely replace your television to be your homes main TV for movies, entertainment, and gaming, then you’ll only be interested in the 108p+ resolution-givers, and the most premium of 4K units. And this is the most sensible kind of way to look at it, as it’s extremely hard to find a projector that’ll guinenely be a hybrid, jack of all trades unit.
Think about use, then apply some priorities such as resolution, gaming focus, brand, and, of course, price – the latter being particularly useful when you know what your budget is, and what models to push it a bit for.
