A great projector, like the light and versatile Epson EpiqVision Mini EF12 laser projector, creates many entertainment possibilities. You could use it in the living room instead of having a television. You could move it around to other rooms or even outdoors. As you read this article and learn about the amazing projector we are giving away in this contest, think about how you would use it in your own life.

Epson projectors are more than just for occasional movie nights

I have owned several projectors over the years. When my kids were young, the projector would move from bedrooms to the basement to the outdoors … depending on who had a sleepover and many other factors. At that time, I had purchased a home office Epson, not knowing much about what my options were (this was before I started working for Best Buy!). Now I would be more selective, opting for the longevity and brightness of a laser projector. However, we had a ton of fun.

Projectors are easy to setup and simple to operate. The one we are giving away in this contest has built-in Android apps: simply connect to Netflix, Prime video, etc or stream from your phone. Epson makes it so easy. I encourage you to read the review and watch the review video that Andy Baryer did recently to learn about this projector so you can start to plan how you would use it.

Why I think everyone should own a projector

If you can have only one home theatre display, then I suggest you seriously consider making it a projector like the Epson we are giving away in this contest. Here are my top 3 reasons:

  1. Fits into the smallest apartment: projectors take up a lot less room than a TV, so even a tiny apartment has room for one.
  2. Creates a big image: you can’t imagine how much better a huge screen is when watching almost anything. Move the projector back a bit for an even bigger image.
  3. Feels like a cinematic experience: for me, watching a movie or sports from a projector feels amazingly immersive. Partly nostalgic, I’m sure, yet it doesn’t get old.

I’m not saying throw out your TV. Most home living rooms, family rooms, even bedrooms are great with a TV. And TVs are less washed out by bright sunlight. However, a projector like the one we are giving away is more versatile: take it anywhere. And no one ever planned an outdoor movie night with their huge 85″ living room TV. With a projector you can easily have a screen that’s well over 100″.

  7. My family would use this projector in this basement or in the primary bedroom on a regular basis.

  8. We would love this projector when travelling around in our RV, as well as projecting movies on the side of the barn in the summer. We get to hang out and watch movies with not only our humans, but also our horses!

  11. We would definitely use this projector in our backyard in the summer. We don’t have a large space, but the white garage wall would be ideal as a screen. In the winter, it would be fun to use this projector inside the garage with the kids’ friends, to create a movie studio of sorts!

  12. One place we would use this regularly is for weekly / monthly outdoor movie viewings – like the days of drive-thru theaters!

    Another place we would use this is on camping trips (against a white blanket hung on a rope) – especially for scary movies!

I was just mentioning this past weekend to our son about a projector movie systems, I would gift this Epson EpiqVision Mini EF12 laser projector to our son who I know would use it in their family room, basement, bedroom or outside in the the tree house he is building for his children/our grandchildren for a fun for movie night out.

  14. We would love to use this in the living room and up north on the side of our cottage for movie night outdoors!
