Projectors are no longer just for the classroom or business conference room. They are now commonly used in homes and offices to display images and videos on a wall, screen, or whiteboard. Projectors are often placed on desks, table tops, bookshelves, counters, and other surfaces, but using them in this way can distract others in your space or create distractions for you. There’s also the risk of knocking over your projector if you place it on a desk, table top, or other surface that’s not designed specifically for a projector.
A good place to start when purchasing a projector stand is by considering its intended use. Some stands have different sizes and weight limits so that smaller projectors don't fall over when they are used at home, in a business, or in a school.
