Contrast ratio of a projector is the difference between the darkest blacks and the purest whites your projector is capable of displaying and the higher this ratio the more detail you get in the picture.

The 400:1 ratio you're looking for is an ANSI value and is great for presentations in offices and schools. You should know however that this might not be good enough if you intend to watch movies at home and desire that cinematic effect.

Our selection of the best projectors is narrowed down to the top rated projectors which have a contrast ratio of 400:1.

    - The clarity of the image was impressive considering the inherent challenges in short throw projector optics and the price class of this projector.


  • - The top-mounted buttons are easy to navigate and the four-way control pad makes browsing through menus and adjusting settings easy.
    - Short throw is convenient for small rooms, detailed and sharp image.


  • - Internal speaker distorts at high volumes.
    - It's acceptable for presentations and limited full-colour picture viewing, but colour accuracy isn't especially good.
    - The contrast ratio of the Hitachi CP-DW10N is quite low at 400:1, so this is certainly not a projector you'll be using to watch movies on.
    - The top-mounted buttons are easy to navigate and the four-way control pad makes browsing through menus and adjusting settings easy.
