Set up a home theater with 20% off these incredible projectors

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 Black Friday, 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, 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 lumen. 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 brightness. 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 brightness 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 for Black Friday.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
