If your smart TV is not quite big enough, the new Vankyo Leisure 470 Roku might be worth checking out. This new kit bundles a Leisure 470 mini projector with a Roku Express, and the whole package costs just $140.
The Leisure 470 mini projector is not a new projector in itself, but the bundling of the two is new. According to Vankyo, the Leisure 470 Roku is the first officially authorized Roku partner projector kit to become available to buy.
The idea here is to offer an all-in-one projector kit that consumers can pick up and immediately start using. While the Roku Express is a separate device, it can easily be connected to the projector to provide a Roku experience on a screen of up to 250 inches.
For reference, the Leisure 470 Roku isn’t just for use with Roku, as it can be connected to many other devices, including other streaming players, smartphones, laptops, game consoles, and so on.
For those considering picking one up, the Leisure 470 Roku retails for $139, it is available to buy now, and appears to be exclusively available at Walmart. That said, the bundle doesn’t necessarily save you much money, so it is also possible to manually bundle the two devices yourself.
For example, the Leisure 470 mini projector typically retails for around $120 in the United States and can be picked up from a number of retailers including Walmart and Target. The Roku Express retails for $29.99 and can be purchased directly from Roku, or picked up from one of many third-party online retailers.
Even though the retail prices total $150, which is $10 more than the new Leisure 470 Roku projector kit, both devices often go on sale. Right now, Best Buy is currently selling the Leisure 470 mini projector for $113.99, while the Roku Express can be easily picked up from Amazon and other retailers for $24.99. At these prices, the total for the two devices comes to $138.98.
