Sure, you could spend $25,000 on a 97-inch OLED 4K television, but then how do you pay for your kid's college? TV screens get larger yearly, but so do the costs, and getting one into your home could be challenging. Solid, affordable TV options are available but won't give you that home cinema vibe you want. 

I am reviewing several 4K (3840 x 2160) and FHD (1920 x 1080)  projectors, from traditional to laser. The technology, brightness, and quality have grown exponentially, allowing users to go to the movies while sitting on their couch. Some projectors are meant for portability and the backyard, while others are intended to give you the best home cinema experience possible. 

Here are the five best projectors on sale this Black Friday. I have had the chance to get hands-on with them, which has turned my tiny studio apartment into a cineplex.
