SixthAngel:
Since I pretty much watch all my movies and tv shows on the computer I've been considering getting a projector to connect to it.

I don't particularly care if it has a high resolution or if it allows high framerates but I do care that the picture is clear and smooth and I've seen quite a few that looked pretty terrible.

Now I don't know much about projectors so I wondered if anyone here has some advice.  I've heard stories of people buying ones that seemed good but when they acutally projected it onto a larger surface it looked terrible.  Uncle Bob has both and good and bad projector stories posted. I don't want to spend too much money since I don't care all that much for the high end features but I would prefer one that wouldn't break or need a bulb replaced every month.
Any suggestions or advice when buying a projector?

I recently bought this one. It works great. I was using it in a dorm room against a white wall, but the image still looked good. I would say with projectors, you're mostly gonna get what you pay for. There are cheap ones, but they're cheap for a reason. Though you can easily go overboard on a super high end model.

From the range of prices I see it seems extremely easy to go overboard.  I wish everywhere wasn't pushing the top of line projectors all the time.  I would love to get one that is a little outdated for a cheaper price but don't think a used projector would be a very safe bet.  The lights inside these things alone cost like 80 bucks and I don't want one that is going to fry the bulbs quickly.
Yours looks good but its obviously not what I'm looking for since it's high end enough to support 3D glasses.

I wanted to go the same route, but I kept having trouble finding one. You can try new egg and see what they've got or watch woot and see if one comes up. But definitely don't buy used. The bulbs can actually cost almost as much as the projector at times.

Actually, as you know new gadgets are invented with the passage of time but in this modern age, projectors are best for any use like watching or playing. If you want to use a projector then check the website https://perfectprojector.com/.
