Even if you don’t have a TV service you probably have or want to have a TV for watching movies, documentaries, series or for playing games. In a tiny living place such as a small apartment, a tiny house, RV or houseboat there might be no reasonable place for a Flat Screen TV even as small as of 22 inches.
Multimedia Home Theater Mini Projectors are the answer for this dilemma. They take away as less space as you can think and create at the same time a great TV, movie and gaming experience.

I love windows because I think it’s great when the home is bright and flooded with light. Having many windows or big windows unfortunately reduces the amount of wall space you might need for a TV. And windows create also too much light when you want to watch a movie.
Keep your windows or your plans for adding windows to your tiny house or houseboat!
Multimedia home theater mini projectors need exactly that: big windows. On whichever window you want to have your movie screen, just add a window shade of your choice and place the home theater projector on the opposite side. Put a great multimedia home theater mini projector like the one by Elephas to work. And voila! Your home theater is good to go!
Multimedia home theater mini projectors have the advantage that you can place them wherever you want and if you want to you can put them away when you don’t need them. They also have the advantage that your screen for movies is much bigger and wider than it would be with any reasonably sized TV in your tiny living space.
Some of the projectors come with their own stands. A possibility for placing a projector could be your laptop stand, both – projector and stand – in sizes that allows you to put them away after use.
Please remember that the following projectors are considered to be mini or micro projectors which means that you will get the best picture quality when the projection distance is something between 3 and 11 feet. These projectors are definitely not recommended for business presentation or for uses in classrooms. But if you live in a small apartment, tiny house, houseboat or RV, your next wall most probably doesn’t even reach the maximum distance of 11 feet. Most of the negative customer reviews I’ve read were about falsely thinking these mini projectors would be good for big distance projections.
Another point to pay attention to is the brightness that the projector is providing which determines how dark the room must be in order to receive a good quality picture.
Before you choose the model you think is the best for your tiny living place make sure you read all the available product specifications. You will avoid being disappointed because of false expectations.
And then enjoy the great movie nights at your home!

This works better than I thought it would. It isn’t for power point but for a basic projection system, it’s worth the price. Something I thought was nice is it has audio through the HDMI cable.
This projector is great, when I have a meeting I can use this. I use it to put on movies for my kids and it’s perfect for those movie nights with the family. I can put it anywhere because it’s so small which makes it convenient. The image is projected clearly and the material is strong too.

I Have it hooked up to my ps4 to play games and watch Netflix and the image quality is really impressive, especially because similar projectors usually go for twice the price of this one!

Wow! This projector is awesome! It more than fulfilled what I was expecting. It works perfect indoors and even outdoors! The picture/video quality is perfect. I’ve used it for about 10 hours or so during the few days I’ve owned it and no problems at all.
This is the best projector I’ve ever used, we installed it in our living room and also set a box for it in our backyard. The quality is very high, even when there is light inside the house or stars light outside. The volume is very strong. The most important thing is it is small and compact, so you don’t need heavy mount for it.
For this price, there is hardly any product that would beat the quality of this projector. I was interested in viewing content which comes from laptop and or fire stick and this one does the beautiful job. It is not very heavy and in fact has all the ports needed to hook up stick/roku/media box or laptop
