The Samsung Freestyle projector is the kind of tech you love because it IS NOT a “set it and forget it” kind of device. You know what I’m talking about. A regular projector will get mounted in one place in your home and will stay there for its lifetime. This new Samsung projector that was just announced at CES 2022 is a device you’ll move from room to room. You’ll use it inside your home and outside your home. You’ll use it for gaming one day, movies the next—but first it will stream some music while you make the popcorn. Additionally, halfway through the movie you’ll point it at the ceiling so you can lie on your back and continue with the show! Learn more about this projector, then enter for a chance to have this amazing new technology in your home before anyone else in the country.
Why are so many people excited about the Samsung Freestyle projector
It’s safe to say that this Samsung projector is one of the most talked about new technologies coming out of CES 2022. There are many reasons for this excitement. It’s a small device that can be placed almost anywhere to send a brilliant display onto walls or ceilings for instant entertainment. It’s also a self contained entertainment powerhouse with streaming services preinstalled: just turn it on, connect to your Wi-Fi, then play Netflix, Prime, and more without connecting to any external device. That’s amazingly convenient.
This is a projector for everyone. You love tech, it’s for you. You just need something to take the place of a TV so you can put shows on a wall occasionally, it’s for you. You want something to display business presentations or school presentations, it’s for you. So if you are wondering who this technology is for: it’s for you. You could use it as a secondary monitor; as a television, as a movie theatre, as a gaming station … the list goes on and on. Read Andy Baryer’s review of this projector on the blog (here is his video review) to learn more … and to find out why he (and his mother) want to buy this projector.
FAQs about the Samsung Freestyle Projector
Here are some quick answers to some questions that I think will be on many people’s minds:
Is the projector cordless?
The projector needs to be plugged to an electrical power source: this can be a power outlet, an extension cord (like you might when using it outside), or a power bank (like the many portable and convenient power banks carried at Best Buy). Once you connect to your home Wi-Fi network you do not need to connect it to anything else to watch a ton of content. Built-in applications enable you to connect to movies, TV shows, sports, and more.
How do I connect to Netflix, Prime, or Disney+?
Once the projector is connected to Wi-Fi you can connect to Netflix, Prime and other streaming applications using the built-in apps. Follow the simple on-screen menu to quickly connect and start watching.
Can I connect a computer or game console to this projector?
Yes! Just like any other display screen (TV, monitor, etc) you can plug an HDMI cord from a Blu-ray player, gaming console, laptop etc. into the projector. This projector using a micro-HDMI input so you might need an adaptor or a HDMI to Micro-HDMI cord (available at Best Buy).
How long will it take me to set up this projector when I get it home?
You can set up Samsung’s The Freestyle projector in just a few minutes. Locate where you want to set it up; plug it in; follow the instructions to connect it to your home Wi-Fi; follow the menu to select what you want to watch. Of course, the first time you use each app (Netflix, Disney+, etc) you will need to enter your account login details.
Samsung continues to impress the world with its innovation
Lastly, I wanted to comment on the impressive new tech from Samsung. They continually innovate in many different product categories. A couple years ago I was so impressed with the new Galaxy Note 10 that I switched from an iPhone, though I had never used an Android device before. I have not regretted it at all and still love my Note 10 phone. You’d think with the impressive announcements at CES 2022 for smartphones, televisions, gaming, and appliances, they wouldn’t have time to create a whole new product. However, they did. Reviewer Andy Baryer calls The Freestyle a game changer and I’m sure it will become a mainstay in many homes during 2022. It’s available now to preorder from Best Buy (available on February 11, 2022); but, one lucky Canadian will win the projector that Andy tested and be one of the first in Canada to enjoy this projector in their home.
