Projectors are important in any situation that negates the need for a computer monitor or a TV screen. You can use them to show slideshow presentations (especially in a corporate or academic setting) and also set them up before starting a home movie screening, among others.

Gone are the days of big and bulky projectors. Improvements in technology over the years have enabled many brands to develop smaller-sized projectors that deliver the same quality as those of older, bigger ones. Besides being small and portable enough to let you bring them anywhere you go, these projectors also have various features, ranging from wireless connection to Wi-Fi connection. Best of all, they are all easy to set up, be they wired or wireless.
