Still expensive? Yes. Still totally worth it? Yes. Cheapskate readers get a free extended warranty, too.
During quarantine I finally assembled the home theater of my dreams. OK, not quite, but the key components are there: a 4K projector pointed at a 100-inch framed screen (this one, if you’re interested).
The projector I chose normally sells for $2,799, but right now you can get a deal that’s close to the all-time low: While supplies last, BuyDig has the Vava 4K UHD ultra-short-throw projector for $1,999 with promo code CHEAPSK8. That code will work with the black or white model, and it also includes a CPS two-year extended warranty. (The manufacturer’s warranty is one year.)
The Vava 4K blasts a beautiful, mammoth image on the wall and solves a number of the challenges normally associated with projector setups. It’s an ultra-short-throw model, meaning you can park it right below your screen or wall. That eliminates the hassles of a traditional ceiling mount, which are considerable.
