    Hi everybody,
    I don't have a television, but do a fair amount of watching on devices. I've been looking for a projector to plug into and project shows and movies on the wall for a more theatrical experience. My requirements are modest, and I think that 480p would be adequate. I've seen a number of reasonably priced Pico type units on Amazon, but feel the reviews are often padded by the sellers, so don't really trust them.
    I'd ideally like to spend $50, or less. If anybody has any suggestions, that would be great.

    I'm using this one:

    I know you want to spend $50, but they have very little in the way of lumens, and this one works great, with the caveat that the room needs to be dark. I carry it with me for work and use it for a roughly equivalent 100" TV in my office projected on a blank wall.

    Thanks for the reply. That looks like a nice unit, though it's beyond my budget, I believe.
