For movie night – especially in these colder months – it’s all about gathering on the couch in front of the TV. Still, unless you’re into having a panel just dominate a room, there’s only so large most folks will go for screen size. If you want to go go really big – or just want to be able to have movie night in the backyard – then a projector is where it’s at. A recent release – the Emotn N1 Projector – caught our eye.

So, what makes the Emotn N1 Projector stand out from any other projector? For starters, it’s got Netflix built right into the thing, so you don’t have to hook up a Roku or screencast from your phone. Furthering it as a potential all-in-one movie night box is the fact that it’s got a pair of 5W speakers built right in. Sure, it won’t be room-shaking bass, but it’ll get the job done (and it’s got a line-out port so you can hook in a more powerful speaker if you want).

If you’re wanting to project the movie inside, well, then noise is something you’re going to worry about. Since projectors get hot throwing the photons at the screen, they tend to have noisy fans. Somehow, despite being able to output 500 lumens on a 60″ – 120″ display, the projector runs under 26 dB, meaning the fan noise shouldn’t be a distraction to what you’re watching.

When we’ve used projectors here, it’s been for a quick, impromptu setup, or even to let the kids watch something on their own in another room (we’re a 1 television house), and with the automatic adjustments and everything being built in, this looks like a solid option to continue that trend. Then again, we’re going on specs here, but we do have a review loaner coming in to give you a real world review in a little bit. In the meantime, if you want to pick up an Emotn N1 Projector, the retail price is $399.99, but they’ve currently got a $50 coupon going on Amazon to celebrate the launch.
