Projector advice please?

Hey all.
I just bought a wee cheap-n-cheerful DrQ projector for playing movies in the garden, but it's really not bright enough... Does anyone have any recommendations for something not terrible, but that won't break the bank either?
Would like full HD, 4K isn't needed ( For now... That'll be Xmas for the living room ).

Suggestions? ( Or is anyone looking to upgrade to 4K and let their old one go cheap like? )

It works surprisingly well in a bright room if you're watching a bright source (PIXAR cartoon) but you'd need virtual darkness for something like The Walking Dead.
