We've had 2 Casios develop missing pixel problems two years apart. Both returned to Casio and sorted out under guarantee without problem.
No colour issues. They're wonderful projectors... they behave much better than the conventional ones and are worth every penny IMO.
just remeber for apple tvs only 25 apple tvs on a network
Why HDMI? This...
Then you take into account the consistent image quality you get year on year; no blue/yellow tint due to cooked mirrors, still bright after year 2. Sensible default settings, sensible menus... and if we are lucky they will last the full 20,000 hours which, if I'm getting my maths right, is 17 years @6hours/day * 195days/year!
BUT personally I can't stand DLP technology as I can see the rainbow. It actually starts to make my eyes go funny.

Does anyone have a particular Casio model that they favour? ... Just so I can do some pricce and spec comparisons. ... Thanks
Plus, even if that 20000 hours is wrong by 100% and you actually only get 10000 hours (and let's be honest, it won't be THAT wrong) you're still saving money compared to bulb projectors.
We're trying to standardise on HDMI connections for staff. We'll get a few VGA> HDMI adapters for the ones who don't have HDMI on their laptop. It makes for a tidy, single connection to the projector.
iirc normal price of around £625.
We have a handful of XJA130's for probably getting on for 2 years now & they are bright still & colours still seem fine. Issuesne had what we thought was a remote fault,sent it back no fault found, turned out to be florescent lights in that room interfered with the remote, they have to be off for it to work!
Just have another that needs to go back with what I think is the classic DLP failure issue, white/black specs over the image from DLP chip fault, still in warranty so that should get sorted.
This is an interesting thread.
Whilst I appreciate cost is important, nobody has mentioned the fact that conventional projectors with MERCURY CORE LAMPS are really bad fo the environment, so whilst saving money initially by buying this type of technology over Mecury Free Laser LED, they are creating a bigger problem for everyone in the future. !!
Also the simple maths.............
Conventional Projector Cost. =£400 (average)
Minimum amount of lamps over 20,000 hours (if it lasts that long) = 5
Minimum cost of 5 Lamps = £1000
Total = £1400.
Laser Led Projector Cost = £650 (avarage)
Lamps...................er it does have one & has a 20,000 light source warranty.
Total = £650.............& no MERCURY added into the environment !
The other inconvenience with conventional projectors is having to actually physically replace the lamps every 4000 hours (remove from installed position to carry this out) & then go through all the correct procedures of disposing of the old Mercury Core Lamp (check it out)
In conclusion, its a NO BRAINER !!

We have some Casio's and they are simply not reliable enough. We have opted not to use them in the new building next year.
