Small lightweight portable screen?

I just picked up a CelluOn PicoPro for reasonably cheap. Now I am looking for a screen, it needs to be tiny, lightweight and cheap heh. An older thread here mentioned projecting on https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Collap...dp/B005M09B4E/ which is a bit funny but it collapses into a 12.5" round bag and it's only 0.7lbs. To be fair: even this is too large, I do not think I need a larger than 30" screen. If going with the reflector route, https://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Coll.../dp/B00DIHSZCC would be a better size because I have a 9.5" x 10" shoulder bag which this would fit but as a disc it's not ideal, a similar sized but elongated would be great. But it seems as usual everyone is selling the same under different labels. Sigh.

This https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...1_7.html/specs screen appears at various price points and labels not sure which one is the same and which is a cheap knockoff. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...projector.html this is like half, for example and doesn't seem different. It is a waste of space tho because it doesn't roll up / only folds in half.

This https://xyscreen.en.made-in-china.co...ting-Room.html again appears under various labels, the 30" https://www.amazon.com/Koval-Inc-30-...dp/B01I3YKDFQ/ one is described as unstable.

So, um, any good ideas? 20-30" screen, needs to be able to set up on any table, 1lbs max, max 50 USD is great (I paid 180 USD for the projector including shipping and import fees to Canada), 17" longest packed is good, 9.5" longest is incredible but if badly needed I can work with ~27" tops (but that means checking in a suitcase). Thanks!

You are probably the expert and have done more research in this area than any one who my read this. After all, this is a "Home Theater" forum, 100" is a small screen to us. To me a piece of foam core board with some kind of feet would be all you need. Good luck!

If you're looking for something cheap that doesn't get at least some negative reviews, forget about it. There ain't no such thing. Do a web search for tabletop projection screen, look at all the alternatives and pick the one that best suits your needs and budget. Something that works like the one in the video below is probably the most commonly used type of easily portable small tabletop projection screen:
