$300 and change is about the cheapest you're gonna get and it's going to be Chinese.
Maybe a bit cheaper direct from China. This was from Amazon.

I haven't tested it, but there's a VANKYO V600 that's 1080p. Just a hair over $300 right now after coupon on Amazon.

Reviews look ok.

If you do buy one, post back about the quality etc especially if you have a "real" projector as a reference point.
I've had a few Chinese projectors before and while not bad (also not very good), they certainly weren't spectacular by any means. They were passable at best.

Need a link to see it. Mostly the cheap ones a false size and lumens. You might find a $300 refurb pico that's true 1080p

Specs say 1080p native.

Lumens? Sure.
Resolution is clearly spelled out as "1080p compatible" but actually 800x540.
But this is usually $100 projectors that do this. The one I mentioned above specifically says native.

The one I mentioned right now is $336.99 minus $30 coupon with no tax.

I only need iot for a specific project and dont have room in my house to put up a projector. I'll try to see if I can get this and post back. Amazon reviews seem like quality on this can be varible , specificaly in terms of focus. But I'll try it out .
