A portable projector, or a pico projector, is a great little gadget because it lets you put a big screen — over 100 inches, in most cases — almost anywhere. When shopping for a portable projector, there are a number of things to look out for. There’s its brightness and the size of the picture it can project. There’s also the matter of connectivity and whether it has built-in operating system which will allow it to stream content directly without the help of a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. There’s its size, because not all portable projectors are actually that portable. And then there’s cost, of course.

Below, you’ll find some of our favorite portable projectors of 2020.
