"A very basic projector"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Question: Can you get a decent projector roughly the size of a phone (in desk space) for a price that won't break the bank-

The answer is yes-ish. It can't be tilted (not for technical reasons, it'll just distort the picture and there's no way to correct it) and it definitely does not do close-range projection. But if you can get it the right distance from the wall and elevated properly, it throws a serviceable projection onto the wall. (Or ceiling. It's square and points up decently well.) You're not going to be marveling in awe at the realistic graphics of anything any time soon, but you paid less than $500 for this projector, so that's fair.

It comes with a remote (sans batteries), and a wall-charger. It has a built-in battery which can be enabled / disabled with a tiny little switch, which will sacrifice brightness (according to the manual) but otherwise let it run without external power. Sound quality's okay, but you can plug in an external set of speakers to improve that. It'll run a Chromecast with no problem, which can make it a portable Netflix / Youtube machine. It's portable, and feels reasonably robust. (I'm not gonna punt it down a hallway any time soon, mind)

Note that the remote is necessary if you want to fiddle with any of the few settings it has; the buttons on the machine itself can only change source (HDMI, AV in, or removable storage), and adjust volume.

It does everything it says it'll do, and given the price, at a rather decent value. If you need a projector you don't mind losing or breaking, this might be your best shot.

"Really awesome!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I’m super happy with this! We found out that the projector has a screw hole for a tripod which is amazing! You can also plug in yiur speakers. All you need to do is set up a white sheet and chuck your projector on a tripod! (Or prop it up on a couple of boxes). We were surprised with how good the quality was (don’t expect cinema quality – it’s 480p so scales up okay- sponge bob looks better than Star Wars. But Star Wars was still okay). It’s great in a dark room, but a bit weak when there’s light. Our friends were super impressed on our movie night! I’m really happy with this purchase and would 10/10 recommend!

"Good value"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As one would expect, it's nothing fantastic, but at the price and size I have nothing to complain about. I bought it for retrogaming on my raspberry pi which it handles well.

SMALL & COMPACT: This pocket-size projector is only 4.7" x3.4" x1.9" (10.25 ozs), not much bigger than your smartphone. You can take it anywhere in your purse, pack or pocket. Ideal for home entertainment in a dark room, not recommended for PowerPoint or business presentations.

POWERED BY A POWER BANK: The projector does not have its own battery; it needs a 5V/2A power source such as a wall charger or power bank. Great for travel, hiking and camping where there's no electricity or TV. Also popular with children.

MULTI PORTS: The various multimediaia ports such as USB/AV/SD slots enable you to connect everything from smartphones, laptops, tablets, DVD players, game consoles and more. You can also show the video and photos on a USB flash drive, firestick or micro SD. (To connect smartphones, a lightning to HDMI adapter, MHL to HDMI adapter, or WIFI display dongle is needed.)
