Here are some suggestions for accessories and screens to help you get the most out of the affordable Febfoxs projector recently recommended in my column. I think the sweet spot is a projector, cable for portable devices, tripod screen and a Roku. That is under $250 and provides a lot of capability. If using the projector outside you will need an extension cord and power strip. I’ll leave that up to you to find one – you probably have one in your home already. Many of you will already have a Blu-ray player, and they are widely available under $100.
This is just a start and depending on reader reaction to the column, I may have an update with more info and suggestions for speakers and other accessories to use with the projector.
Febfoxs 1080p projector
The projector is where we start – an amazing value for under $100, and a respectable performer.
HDMI to USB-C and Lightning cables ($20 and under)
These will provide a simple, reliable connection from your phone or tablet to the projector.
HYZ 100-inch screen with tripod stand $109.99
I have one of these and it is my most convenient to use. It can be set up in less than 30 seconds by a single person, and the picture quality is identical to the 120-inch JWSIT screen. This is a really great buy, and paired with the Febfoxs projector it is a formidable $200 combo.
JWSIT 120-inch screen with stand $180
I have this screen and it is my most-used. The picture quality is fantastic, the PVC durable and it is very sturdy. Highly recommended!
Roku is my fave, others are proponents of the Amazon Fire Stick. Won’t go wrong either way. I recommend getting the 4K version so it is future-proof. The projector specs are unclear but it seems to indicate it can squeeze a bit better of an image out of a 4K signal than a 1080P signal, even though it is a 1080P projector.
This is not 100% necessary, but I have one and find it useful.
