The offsite meeting room that we use for our team meetings wants to charge us 75 for the use of a projector. I can buy a projector on Amazon for less than that.

But is it worth it? Are there any good cheap portable projectors?

Good cheap portable. As far as I've seen you can have two.

This is the type of thing I offload to the Wirecutter:

Dirt cheap projectors usually have crappy low native resolutions like 800x480. They spout "Full HD" since they accept that but just downscale. Usually they are fairly upfront if you read the details though.

Which is why Matt's suggestion looks very interesting.. 1280x800 native.

This one, VANKYO Leisure 510, is much cheaper and seems to have excellent reviews. Not a "in the palm of your hand size", but that means it probably can run cooler as well:

Link above is for the UK; look on Amazon.ca or Amazon.com for reviews.

A long way short of less than 75 GBP though mentioned in Roger's post.

It is. So even a 400 projector will amortise out fairly quickly.

Yup, as would the larger/cheaper 160 projector as well.
