    even before we started buying the casios. when we still on epsons we were of the opinion of buying new projectors rather than replace the bulb as there wasn't much in the price difference. and at lot where still dim after changing bulb

    i wouldnt advise using bits of chipboard and drilling extra holes into existing projector brackets!, [advertising removed] do a range which house the casio projector perfectly and are backward compatible with a 50mm pole, plus imagine your brand new projector falling from height after being poorly and unprofessionally fixed from a piece of wood!, deffo not good practice,

    brightness is not a problem. they are brighter than epsons and more flexible in terms zooming they seem to have a better zoom range, and they even auto-keystone.
    Not true the casios are just under 2000 ANSI on the ones i have tested the Epson X8 are 2500 ANSI and a sharper image, yes the casio dont have filters to clean but they still need a deep clean every now and again as they have nothing to stop dust getting in i have seen dust ingress in these on 2 sites
    Epson come with 5 year on site and yes it does cover lamp and yes it does cover more than one lamp.

    Most Epsons are auto keystone but this is not a selling point as you usually only do it once.

    200 ANSI? I hope that's a typo. If it is a typo for 2000 ANSI, then did you use the 2500 lumens model or the 2000 lumens model?

    Marc, I think you're missing the point with the Casio's.

    Many people comment on the image quality being not quite as sharp as other projectors or the colours not being as true and the noise being slightly more...

    The point is they will last for far longer than a standard projector. The massive zoom allows you to replace most old projectors with minimal messing around with cables, brackets etc...

    Schools are all pressed on their budgets, the total cost of ownership is far better on the casios especially when you take into account the energy consumption.


    Are they the best quality projectors out there? No they are not. Are they adequate for the vast majority of classrooms? Yes they are.


    If the school can afford them they are a great option.

    coupled with technicians not having to change bulbs in a school with 100+ projectors freeing them up for other stuff, although changing a bulb in itself isn't the longest job in the world factor it is one of the few jobs where you physically have to visit the problem, technicians office location and projector location aren't always next to each other, for some schools even on different sites.

    the massive zoom is amazing, i watched most of the world cup on one. honestly most teachers have commented on the picture quality being better. (obviously their making an unfair comparison to a 5 year old broken projector, but if their happy, whats the problem?>)

    I got an email from one of our suppliers (select technology) recently who are offering a 3000 ANSI lumens Casio which for us is worth it due to the strong sunlight:

    it's pretty dear, but we tend to pay quite a lot over here anyway.

    New Casio LED 3000ANSI Lumens Projectors - Lamp Free, 5 Year Warranty for Education, Maintenance Free

    ......stock of the 3000 ANSI Lumens Casio LED projectors

    Current Price @ 959.00
