We all miss going to the movies. That awesome chill when you step into a theater from a hot summer night, the salty popcorn, the shared experience of joy or terror or sadness or adventure. We wish we could give that to you right now.
But this year, we’ll have to settle for the next best thing (which, by the way, is pretty darn good): an easy way to create your own home theater and make some magic safely right on your own turf.
All you need is this Hompow Digital Projector. Right now it’s on sale for just $80 with on-page coupon—yes, you read that correctly. $80 for endless hours of outdoor fun for the last days of summer nights and year-round excitement inside. This represents a price drop of $70—the original price for this projector is $150.
With a flat wall (or a white sheet), you’re all set for al fresco viewing. Outdoors is much safer than inside when it comes to possible transmission of the coronavirus. If you want to hang with friends who are in your bubble, the best way to do it is outdoors at a safe distance. And what could be more fun than a backyard movie—where folks can enjoy each other and bring their own chairs and their own snacks to keep the event as risk-free as possible.
Here’s the lowdown:
Easy to use
The Hompow Digital Projector is compact and easy to use. Just connect the projector to your laptop to stream movies or shows. You can also plug in a Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV Stick or Chromecast. It’s that easy. Small yet mighty, with 3,600 lumens of brightness and Full HD resolution, the Hompow Digital Projector can project images nearly 15 feet high.
“Great quality for a very reasonable price. This projector was exactly what I needed and really high quality,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “The picture is perfect and it is easy to use. The manual was so simple to follow! And the sound did not disappoint….” Stereo speakers provide sharp audio. But you could also hook up a pair of portable speakers for a little more oomph.
Outdoor fun, indoor fun
While the Hompow Digital Projector is a natural for thrilling summer nights outdoors, it’s also great for inside movie night, when you want an extra-large picture. Some shoppers say the picture is so bright, you can even use it indoors during the day. “The picture quality is fantastic,” added yet another reviewer.
Heck, you can even plug in a video game console like Xbox One, PS4 or Nintendo Switch for gameplay in a big way—no lag or latency either. “This little portable projector carries quite a punch,” said a satisfied Amazon shopper. “Its picture is super clear, it’s lightweight so we move it from room to room or outside. Sound is pretty good when near projector but I recommend a good quality speaker for full experience. I got the Fire stick and couldn’t be happier to stream Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus anytime.”
At just $80, this Hompow Digital Projector offers crystal-clear and sharp picture and impressive audio for the ultimate movie night in your own backyard or rooftop. Usually priced at $150, this summer-theater device is only $80 right now. It will pay for itself almost immediately. We’re willing to bet it becomes your best purchase of 2020.
