    If you want to stick with Sanyos then have you looked at the PLC-WL2500?

    We've just this week replaced one with a PLC-WL2500 or atleast are in the process of doing so - the mount holes are entirely different so we've had to purchase an additional mount to bolt to the mount plate(1st Generation Promethean Activ+2). Looks like it'll work out perfectly. The projector will be lower than before and is much bigger than the XE-40 but its not low enough to affect visability or h&s

    Do Casio do a short throw version of this?

    really like the idea of not changing bulbs but LEA advises to use short throw projectors

    Casio don't currently do a short throw version.

    I'm trying to get away from short throw setups although the ultra-short throw's aren't all that bad when fitted correctly(the ones that bolt to the wall directly) however the ones on booms never seem to be quite right, the image is always slightly off because the weight of the projector pulls the mount downwards. If I never saw another Promethean Activ+2 again I'd be very happy. Don't suppose you can just ignore the LEA?(thankfully we're an independent)

    There are several projectors that will fit NEC and Epson Included but justa point if the weight of the projector is pulling the mount down it is not installed correctly !!!

    they had the prototype on show at bett - its not quite ultra short throw yet but still would do IWB from 1m or so

    the bloke said they where hoping to get out for the summer but they havn't got a firm date/price for it yet.

    I ordered and fitted a Sanyo PLC-WL2500 I got it with a a plate mount for it - I then mounted the projector through both plates - seems to have worked really well and was actually cheaper then the projectors we replaced with before
