I'm looking for a very, very cheap projector. I'm hoping for HD, but I know that might not be possible given my price range. I'd settle for 480p, 720p would be ideal though. I'm honestly not wanting to spend over $100.

 

The only reason I want a projector is because I have a really tinny room with limited space, I have no room for a large TV/stand. I'm just looking for a projector that can be hooked up to a blu-ray player or gaming console to play movies, or is able to play movies via USB. 

 

Brightness isn't a huge concern, as I'll only be using it in the dark. Built in speakers would be an advantage as I probably won't be able to afford some decent ones for a while, but it's not a must I can always use my computer speakers, it would just be a pain switching them back and forth.

 

I'll only be using this projector to play movies. Also, is a screen a must?

 

Any help is much appreciated!

Your only option is the used market. I would look for a DLP 1024 x 768 resolution 4:3 projector. There are tons on eBay for under that price but most will be close to needing a bulb or have a burnt out bulb (most bulbs cost at least $100). You might get lucky (as these are not selling very easily) to find one with fewer hours on the lamp but its always a crap shoot. Very few have speakers some computer speakers would be fine and can be had for $10 or less.
