Portable video projectors supporting Full HD 1080p can get expensive, but they don’t have to be if you know where to look. The best mini projector, one that supports 1080p, decent speakers, and good picture quality, might just be the AuKing Mini Projector 2020. It’s cheap and serves as the best choice on a budget.

Why We Like It – AuKing Mini Projector 2020 Review

Supports 1080p resolution, lots of video input options, and for an excellent price, this multimedia home theater movie projector is perfect for midday and nighttime entertainment events.

  • Highest lumen rating on list
  • Great price for performance
  • Free delivery
  • Cheap build quality


The AuKing 2600 Lumens Portable Projector 2020 hits all the right targets needed in a projector, without sacrificing too much in other areas. For starters, its native resolution is 800×480—which is honestly pretty abysmal—but it supports up to 1080p and 2600 lumens. And that’s what you should be worried about. That means your video source determines most of the quality, not the native resolution.

Furthermore, its viewing area is a lot bigger than the Anker Nebula Capsule. Resolution can suffer a bit when increasing the viewing area. You only notice this if you’re sitting too close, however.


As for design, it’s clear sacrifices were made somewhere to justify such a low cost: the AuKing Mini 5500 Hours Multimedia Home Projector’s build quality is a bit cheap. Take care of it, and this will never become an issue. Ports available along the right face are: HDMI VGA USB AV and SD card. With that kind of selection, you can hook up something like an Amazon Fire TV Stick and project it on your wall. It just so happens, one of our best, the Dr. J Professional HI-04 1080p, also has HDMI USB VGA SD card and AV.


Out of all the best mini projectors on our list, AuKing’s LED projector is by far the best deal for a home cinema center at home on a budget. At $90, you save so much money, enough to invest in a projector screen and better speakers down the road. The icing on the top is free shipping, too. What more could you ask for? Its performance outweighs its shortcomings, and even exceeds a few of our best, like the Vankyo Leisure 3 Mini Projector.

AuKing Mini Projector 2020 Review Wrap Up

Everything the AuKing Mini Projector 2020 is makes it one of the best options for a mini projector. It incorporates all the features, albeit locked into a cheap chassis. With 2600 lumens, it works well during the day, but even better at night. Its pricing perfectly matches its performance, and free shipping is tossed in for good measure.
