Hosting an outdoor movie night is a safe way to have some family fun this summer, and it doesn't have to cost you a fortune. Thanks to a Walmart deal we spotted this week, you can snag an outdoor projector for your backyard for less than it costs to take your family to the movie theater.
This one in particular is not just affordable, but reviewers say it offers a clear picture, easily connects to an external device, and is simple to set up.

Walmart deal: Snag this outdoor projector for under $60
Ematic 150" HD Video Projector (EPJ580B) | Was $139.99, now $59.99 at Walmart
The Ematic EPJ580B features a 3000:1 contrast ratio, projection size up to 150", and offers GA/ 2 x HDMI IN, USB 2.0, MicroSD card, 3.5mm headphone jack, AV IN and DC IN connectivity. (The HDMI port is especially handy for connecting with your phone, streaming stick or video game console).
The resolution, 800x480, isn't top-of-the-line options, but it's plenty good enough for movies and gaming.
The one concern reviewers shared is the sound quality. It has built-in speakers, but the projector isn't super-loud, so if you're planning on hosting movies for a crowd, you might want to consider hooking it up to an external or portable speaker.
