Bring the theater home with 20% off these Cyber Monday projector deals

XGIMI isn't a brand that's familiar to most, but the Chinese manufacturer is doing all the right things in the projector segment. I used several of its products this year — including the fabulous $1,700 Horizon Pro 4K, $650 Elfin, and the $999 portable Halo+. The three projectors address three different segments and use cases, but what unifies them is that they are all excellent value.

And for Cyber Monday, all three projectors are on sale. The Horizon Pro 4K is down to $1,500 — $200 less than its retail price — and that makes an already-great product truly stand out. The Horizon Pro 4K goes up to 2,200 lumen brightness, making it ideal for viewing even in daylight, and it has a throw ratio of 1.2:1 and can project an image up to 300 inches.

It's not missing out on any of the extras either; you get HDR10 and MEMC, and there are dual 8W speakers that produce adequate sound on their own. The design is also elegant, but it's the picture quality that sets the Horizon Pro aside from its rivals; in short, this is one of the best projectors under $2,000, and the fact that you can get it for $1,499 on Amazon right now makes it an absolute steal. If you don't want 4K, there's a 1080p model of the Horizon Pro that is now on sale for just $935, a savings of $165.

Then there's the Elfin. This projector has a slim form factor and is designed for portability, but it will need to be plugged in. It also has outstanding picture quality, HDR10+ and MEMC, and goes up to 200 inches. The Elfin normally costs $650, but it's now on sale for $519, 20% off its retail price.

And if you want something portable, the standard Halo is a fantastic choice. The portable nature allows you to take the projector anywhere, and it gets pretty bright at 800 lumens. You also get dual 5W speakers, and the built-in battery lasts just over two hours when projected at up to 150 inches — ideal for watching a movie in the backyard. The Halo usually costs $799, but it's now available for $639, a discount of $160.

XGIMI Horizon Pro 4K Projector

$1,499 at Amazon

The Horizon Pro 4K is at the pinnacle of 4K laser projectors, offering a sleek design with outstanding picture quality, Android TV out of the box, auto keystone correction, HDR10+, and 4K resolution with projection that goes up to 300 inches and 2,200 lumens. If you're setting up a home theater and need a projector, this is the one to get.

XGIMI Horizon 1080p Projector

$934 at Amazon

The Horizon retains the best features of the Horizon Pro, including the same elegant design, but with a 1080p resolution. You're still getting the same great picture quality and 2,200 lumens and projection that goes up to 300 inches, as well as HDR10, Android TV, and auto keystone correction.

XGIMI Elfin 1080p Mini Projector

$519 at Amazon

The Elfin has to be one of my favorite projectors. It has a thin profile that makes it easy to carry between rooms, and you get great picture quality that goes up to 800 lumens. You'll also find auto keystone correction, HDR10, Android 10, and two 3W speakers that are ideal for smaller rooms.

XGIMI Halo 1080p Portable Projector

$639 at Amazon

The Halo is the best portable projector in the market right now. It projects up to a 150-inch image at 900 lumens, runs Android TV out of the box, lasts for two hours on a full charge, and can be plugged in as well. With auto keystone correction and dual 5W speakers, this projector ticks all the right boxes.

All four projectors have a few features as standard. They all come with auto keystone correction and focus adjustment, and that alone saves you a lot of hassle while setting these up. They also have Android TV out of the box and give you access to your favorite streaming services, and I like the remote that XGIMI bundles with all four. In short, these are the only projectors you should be looking at during Cyber Monday.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
