Wirecutter: How to Pick the Right Projector for Your Viewing Needs

For sports and gaming, ideally you should get a full HD model that’s very bright (2,500 lumens or more) and has a 120 Hz refresh rate, which results in less motion blur in fast-moving images. Gamers should look for a projector that offers very low input lag, which means less time between when something happens in the game and when you see it on your screen. Many home entertainment projectors now include a game mode with lower input lag; we recommend that the lag amount be 16 ms or less. We like the Optoma HD39HDR for sports and gaming.
