Having your own projector can have many benefits. You can use it at home to convert the backyard or the living room into a makeshift theatre.
Home projectors are also great for showing kids educational videos. Small businesses may also prefer to have a small and portable projector at hand for presentations.
Projectors are no longer confined to the high-end market. You can easily purchase a compact projector for budget-friendly prices. Picture quality, of course, will vary depending on your choice.
The best cheap projector, in my opinion, the Crenova XPE470 Mini, generates vibrant graphics despite costing less than a hundred dollars.
Read ahead to find out more such choices in the list below. All the projectors in this list cost $100 or less:

These updated mini projectors have seriously cool new features that you will not find in older versions. So, if you see a perk associated with Image Pro mini projectors, it refers to the latest 2016 edition, not any release in 2015 or earlier. The biggest advantage with this projector is that it’s brighter than your usual cheap projector. The results are images that are less distorted and have more clarity. This clarity comes in handy when playing games the most. This device is easy to set up either indoors or outdoors. It’s small and lightweight, so carrying is not an issue. I chose a glossy and pristinely white home theater screen, which worked well to generate solid image quality. This projector is good for at-home use, but not for business use. If you are showing presentations, the smaller text might not appear clearly.

There are three main things you should consider when you shop for a projector with a $100 budget:
- The width and other dimension sizes of the screen you plan on projecting on
- The distance between the screen and the projector
- The amount of light present in the environment
How you go on about buying a projector depends on the above. If you have a large screen, you will require a powerful projector, which usually cost north of $500.

Different projectors have different projection lengths. Some can only handle 10 feet, while some others may be able to project from beyond 22 feet. When you buy the projector, consider this length carefully.
If you are planning an indoor home theater, for example, you will need to measure the length of the room before you purchase the projector.
Last, you will have to adjust the lighting in the environment to make it suitable for the projector. Most budget projectors work best in darkly lit rooms or dark environments. If you need to
