Portable projectors are becoming an ever important accessory for the business travelers and on the go presenters. They generally weigh between 3 and 8 pounds and occupy less ground space than laptops. Ultra portable projectors have reduced to as much as 4 pounds and super-portable or pico projectors have gone a step further to be lighter than one pound, although they're typically less bright than the larger models.

The best portable projectors today come in three resolutions to suit the wide aspect ratios of laptop screens: the WXGA, XGA and SVGA. For the best unrestricted presentation mojo go for wireless projectors coupled with a remote mouse.

Portable projectors range from the ultra portable kind that you can carry around for business travel, to slightly heavier conference room models and depending on your usage, we have DLP as well as LCD projector options for you.

Our list of the best portable projectors is obtained from top rated reviewers to give authentic information.
So scroll down to check specs, listen to reviews and see price options.
