Best Projector Under $1000

The Optoma HD143X is a stellar option with high-performance features at an extra-affordable price. Offering a combination of both the cheapest sticker price ($431.22 at the time of this review) as well as one of the highest contrast ratios (23,000:1) on this list, we love the HD143X as the perfect entry point for anyone who’s considering their first DLP projector, but isn’t prepared to spend an arm and a leg to get their hands on it.
