We have one here also and the image quality is far superior to any of the lamp types, we plan to replace as needed when they fail to the LED type. More expensive initially but if you deduct the lamps you would have to buy they are going to be cheaper long term. Only problem at the moment is they don't do a short throw, well they did not have short throw a few months ago but that may change soon.

Which models are people buying?

We bought a couple of the XJ-245's to try out the wireless but now will be getting the XJ-240's when we want more as the wireless is a non-starter as it seems you can't use the projectors wirelessly at the same time as being connected wirelessly to a normal wireless lan.

You learn something new everyday - I didn't know things like this existed!
You can get an adapter from maplins for under a fiver. C14 to C5 adapter should do the trick.
(Cause I need 2 prong "cassette" plug to 3 prong "kettle" plug adapaters as well to save electricians coming in to sort out new style epsons as well )

We've stock piled a load of Casio XJ-A130s.
The cheapest one in the range.
They do 2000 lumens at a decent resolution with the usual controls.
Something else (apart from the 'clover leaf'/C5 type mains socket) is the composite input is a 3.5mm jack, rather than separate phono sockets.
So, we needed to buy more adapters to retro-fit them for DVD/video players (yup we still have VHS...)

They come with 3.5mm -> phono socket adapters though don't they? Ours certainly did. The only thing we needed was phono joiners.

@localzuk - 2 years on how are your Casio Projectors? I know @AlexPilot has stated in another thread they cant be faulted 2 years on.
Would be interested to know your experience.

Still going strong. We had a couple of faults, but they provided us with swap in replacements until they were fixed. We have about half a dozen of them here, and all staff love them.

We've had ours about a year. 22 in school and no problems so far.

Ours are running fine, had 1 fail but was swapped next day...
I tend to clean them once a term as they do get a bit dusty, but seem to run fine even when covered.

They've been installed and forgotten.

I think they will be OK when the price comes down but at the moment there is no benifit over the cheaper Epson and simler projectors who now give you a free lamp, and as lamps last 5,000 hrs (five years) that is Ten years of lamps with a new Epson now compare that to the new reduced life of the Laser/LED bulbs that incedently ARE a replaceable unit (same as any other lamp) and there is no advantage of having a LED projector, they are nosier hotter and from what i have seen in my workshop not as reliable.
They will get there but as yet , its my opinion they are not quite ready yet.

From real-life use, I'd disagree entirely. I've *never* seen a normal projector lamp last 5000 hours. Ever. 2500? Sure. Having to swap lamps is not fun though. Its disruptive and annoying.
