We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. One of the most cutting-edge home entertainment developments, High Dynamic Range allows displays to present more realistic contrast than ever before. Local dimming makes HDR somewhat easy on LCD panels, but projectors require the most advanced technologies to produce a cinema-quality picture. We've ranked some excellent new and up-to-date models, which offer the best HDR support on the market. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best hdr projector on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 25, 2018: Only the most expensive laser models like the flagship Sonys or LG will approach the contrast levels of modern, HDR-capable LCD panels. The Optoma is mostly for gamers, while the ViewSonic and Epson are two of very few worthwhile HDR-ready units that don't cost a million bucks. Keep in mind that continued firmware updates will probably help the performance of a lot of these.
