Is a $30 projector worth it?

Specs for that projector show is does support 1080p, but given that it's native resolution is 800x480, I'm guessing it downscales a 1080p input via it's HDMI input.

$30 for a 130" screen probably is pretty good (probably too good), but even for that low price, I'd want to test it out first and check the bulb usage (how many hours in use). $30 for the projector is fine for most. $250+ for a replacement bulb on the other hand...

umm no, lumens is a measurement of light not video resolution. plus there is no such thing as 1800P

if it does not state it can do 1080P then it will not

also the link you have has that projector over $100.00US.

if someone is selling you this make sure you look at the projector before buying it. some cheap projectors only have RCA inputs
