Whether inside or out, with friends or by yourself, having a smart projector can elevate your movie watching or gaming experience. The key to a good smart projector is that it should easily connect to all of your preferred devices. Additionally, it should be portable enough, so that you can take it outside for a movie night, or move around easily from room to room. If you’re using it inside, you can set it up facing a wall for a widescreen experience and it won’t take up as much space as a TV.
