Recommend a projector brand please :)
I need to replace a few projectors and always used to use sanyo, of course they no longer make projectors so need a new brand. I recently purchased some Epson EB S11 and the picture quality was awful (very blurry).
What is popular with people at the moment (I have a Casio demo unit at the moment that will go up today )

Bit silly going for the S-series when they're SVGA? We have recently bought about 8 Epson X11 projectors which the teachers think are simply fantastic - great image quality, clarity and brightness. To be fair, they are being compared to the old ones which were naff but even if reviewing as they are, they're still great units.
I wouldn't touch another SVGA projector now.. just not worth it.

I always liked the BenQ projectors - make sure you get one of the better models and you get lots of extra toys like remote management for less than some of the better known brands. Warranties are also good and they will even send a bloke out to fit a temporary replacement and take your faulty unit for repair!

If the budget allows it, i would have Casio. They've always been tip top for me. Plus there's some good EDU offers on at the min

Thanks, I have the Casio demo in an attempt to convince the bean counters to go down this path in the future.
Unfortunately I need to replace some projectors asap as OFSTED are due anytime and the Casios are not on the cards at the moment :S
Edit: I just realised that the Casios throw length doesn't work with our current installations

The EBX11 is a good shout if you're on a budget. Also, have a look at Optoma

Casio pays for themselves after a while.
We've upgraded nearly all of ours to them now.

We got our's for £255+VAT after the cashback. Worth every penny! Agree about the quickcorner.. great feature!

Any thoughts on InFocus as a brand?

We've replaced most of our projectors with the Casio XJ-A140/1. Great projectors.
Although in some areas, due to the additional costs for brackets, poles and electrical points we have installed Hitachi ED-A220/1 projectors.
These are stiill available with 5 Year Parts & Warranty, 3 Year Buld Warranty and Free Additional Bulb for cheaper than the Casio.

Anyone experience with those new LED type beamers? That supposedly have a very long lamp life? And they for sure go on and off quickly.

The Casio XJA projectors are LED. From my POV, they are fab. No filters to clean, no bulbs to blow; they just need an occasional dusting. Switch on and off instantly, so they aren't left on 'no show'. We replaced all ours with these.
