    Possibly. Ours have "yellow" ones on them, but others might be different...

    Let me check I've got this straight - I would plug the VHS player (or whatever) into the converter, and then the PC-output and converter-output into the splitter and the splitter-output into the projector - right?

    Question Pinch of salt....

    Hello to everyone singing the praises of this projector.
    I am a little more cynical and more of a realist.

    I have so far found no concrete evidence that states the warranty of this projector

    Yes the lamp life is estimated as up to 20,000 hours, but what happens 3 years down the line when it overheats as a fan has stopped, or the power does not start? Having 10,000 hours life left in my lamp is not going to help. Unless we begin a carbon trading scheme with lamp life hours.

    People have earlier in the forum bandied about a 5 year warranty, but I cannot find anything on Casio's website. I have found the following spec sheet, but again it does not mention warranty.

    CANNOT POST URL AS FIRST TIME POST
    Go to Casio's website click on products then projectors

    Please feel free to prove me wrong and point me in the direction of fact.

    Cheers

    I've got a flyer from the stand which has a blue printed tag on the bottom left which states 5 Year Warranty For Education*. Which says below 5 year or 10,000 hours light source warranty, whichever comes first appplies to UK education establishments only.

    So which models are people looking at then? Bottom of the range 2000 lumens, or further up the (price) chain?

    I was also concerned about the warranty, but if it is 5 years for education, this school will be a new build in under 4 thanks to BSF.

    First link I found stating the 5 year warranty: Casio: Leading the REVOLUTION in projector technology | News | AV Interactive | Audio Visual News | AV Magazine | avinteractive.co.uk. It's also on the literature I picked up at BETT from the Casio stand.

    Even assuming that the projector is only going to last the 5 years then the TCO verus a projector with a lamp are pretty similar given the pricing I've been getting.

    We're probably going to be going for the XJ-A140 - 2500 lumens so right in the middle of the range. We've been trying to spec 2200 - 2600 lumens projectors for the past year or two due to problems with light so will be good to see how well these projectors handle it

    Probably the 140 (2500 Lumens, no wireless) model here too (funding permitting, of course!)

    Yep, that'd be right.

    We are looking at getting the 140 or 240 models.

    is a wide screen projector Projection going to fit on a standard smart board?

    If you were willing to "letter box" it, I don't see why not - could cost too much space to be viable, though...

    Question RE: Pinch of Salt

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the feedback, however I am still not entirely convinced. I have a flyer from another manufacturer which states their projector has a 3 year warranty including lamp. Upon purchasing it there was a bit of paper in the box that mentioned some hoops to jump through to get this warranty.

    The AV Interactive website does mention a 5 year warranty, but they are not Casio

    The casio pdf states a 3 year warranty, or 6,000 hours.

    Please link me to a casio document

    Cheers
