This pint-sized projector is a wild $150 off and beefs up movie night, indoors or out

What is it?

It's the gateway to a great night. Imagine this: a soft, crackling fire, the sound of crickets and a massive screen showing your favorite flick. You could have all that (and more!) with the Xgimi Elfin, a fantastic mini projector that comes with a lot of bang for the buck. In fact, our own Rick Broida calls it the "best portable projector he's ever used." (See his full review here.) If you're interested in snapping one up for yourself, you can save $150 right now at Amazon.

Taking family movie night outdoors has never been easier. This little projector boasts a stunning 1080p display and a screen of up to 150 inches.

Why is this a good deal?

With the on-page coupon, this is one of the lowest prices ever on this projector. You can save $150 with a single click — so what are you waiting for? Over the past four months, this projector hasn't dropped lower than $499, so we don't expect to see a better deal anytime soon.

Why do I need this?

This is a powerhouse of a projector. To start with, it's small. Way smaller than you might expect. At just 7.5 by 7.6 inches (and just under 2 inches thick), you can pack this projector into a backpack or purse. Possibly even your jacket pocket. It supports HDR 10 and sports high-quality Harman Kardon speakers and automatic screen alignment.

In other words, those finicky details that plague other projectors? Not a problem here. You can hook up your cable or satellite connection directly to this gizmo, as well as any device with an HDMI output. If you don't want to go through the trouble of hauling out cables, you'll be happy to hear that this projector supports Android TV 10.0 and comes with 5,000+ apps — including family favorites such as Disney+ and HBO Max.

What reviewers say

"Great little projector!" one user raved. "We love this! The projector is very quiet and the picture quality is wonderful! For such a compact thing, the speaker quality was also impressive. My favorite features are probably the auto adjust and the fact that it has Android TV, so we can just connect our apps like you would any TV. It also maintained great quality and clarity projecting on a 20-foot screen. We are looking forward to more summer movie nights!"

"Basically I want to use a projector for watching streaming TV and playing video games. The projector has multiple modes like movie mode and game mode. It can satisfy all my different needs. And I love the Android TV it comes with. So easy to use!" another user said.

Unfortunately, there is one small issue with this monitor. "The only downside is it seems that Netflix will never get certified on this device, so we'll just keep a Fire TV Stick hanging off the back as a work-around," one reviewer said. (Note: Here's a Fire TV Stick that's on sale now.)

So, whether you're in the mood for a movie, a show or a game ... indoors or out ... this portable projector is always ready.

Want to play Mario Kart on the big screen? The Xgimi Elfin supports Game Mode, too.
