Black Friday projector deals are always going to be the best opportunity of the year to save money on the biggest of screen givers - and 2023 won't be any different.
As with all other tech, if you know where to look, you're sure to find a deal that suits you, whether that's something small for occasional 'big screen on the wall' moments, or a high-quality home cinema experience.
To help prepare you and to get a lay of the land, we're putting our expertise down here and thinking about what we can expect from this year's Black Friday projector deals, what happened last year, and, as a result, help you work out whether its worth waiting or not.
And we know what we're talking about here too, having updated our best home projectors guide for years. That list is about the best things out there rather than deals though, so while you should probably take a look to get an idea of the playing field, features, and prices of what to look for, it's always going to be Black Friday which will have the best prices of the year.
When will the Black Friday projector deals start?
Luckily we know the answer to this every year: as tradition dictates, Black Friday itself is November the 24th this year - always the Friday after Thanksgiving.
However, remember that this day is not the be-all and end-all of the Black Friday projector deals: retailers go earlier and earlier now so be ready to peruse and potentially pull the trigger come mid-October.
Where will the best Black Friday projector deals be?

Black Friday projector deals 2023: what to expect
Trying to pick out specifics can get tricky given the projector market's size and diversity now, but the flip side of this means that there is likely to be something for everyone, no matter what you're looking for. However, when highlighting a few models or brands, we can see the price cuts we're likely to get this year (hopefully).
At the premium end of the market, the most famous and well-known name in projector land is likely to be the Samsung Premiere range. This only consists of two models (the LSP9T and LSP7T), but both have made waves in the home projector market since their 2020 release. The slightly more affordable model, the LSP7T, regularly stays around its list price of $3,500 but could see at least an equal lowest-ever price when the Black Friday projector deals start - it has seen a $500 discount multiple times. Given some more time between now and the projector's release, and the general trend of electronic items' prices, matching this price, at least, seems a decent shout.
In terms of some of our other favourites, definitely look out for the likes of the BenQ X1300i, BenQ X3000i, and TK700 projectors, all of which could see new record lows. If the X3000i drops below the $1,500 mark then that'd be superb; if the X1300i and TK700 went below the four-figure mark then both would be insta-recommendations from us - and all would represent new record low prices.
