We looked at the top LCD budget projectors released over the last year to bring you this list of the best cheap LCD projectors, all of which are highly rated by the top reviewers from around the web. Additionally, this budget friendly list is filtered by the ones which have a Reviewgist score of 60 or higher and are arranged in the ascending order of their price.

LCD projectors tend to have great colour saturation, are also more light efficient than DLPs and are best suited for offices and businesses where presentations need sharper images.
