Projectors for computers are also becoming a must for business presentations. The use of laptops and iPads has also made laptop projectors and iPad projectors increasingly popular.

Computer projectors today are very portable which allows you to easily move the gadget to any location. For the business travellers, portability is very important. Movie fans will also find them very easy to carry to a friend's house for movie viewings or for game playing.

There are many types of computer projectors on the market today. The portable front-projection system is a smart choice for consumers. They range from data projectors best suited for business presentations and PDF files and spreadsheets, to home theatre projectors for leisure, and multimedia projectors for games, movies as well as for the workplace.

When choosing a computer projector, keep in mind that brighter is not necessarily better. It all depends on the environment.  A 1,000 to 2,000 lumens for a home theater projector used in a dark room will give you a bright image. In a well-lit setting, 2,000 to 3,000 lumens is a good range.

Contrast ratio is another key element which is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest and darkest areas. The higher the contrast ratio the more vibrant the colors and more detail will show up in the darker area of the screen.

Resolution of a projector is one of the elements you should look for when purchasing a computer projector. For PowerPoint presentation data images, a low 800x600 resolution is adequate. A lower resolution projector will save you some money. However, a higher resolution projector will be better for viewing detailed images such as movies and games. A resolution of 1080p is preferred for home theater projectors to get a full HD experience.
