    Promethean ActivBoard 378PRO alternatives

    Hi

    Are there any other alternatives we should consider to the Promethean ActivBoard 378PRO.

    We want an all in one board that includes projector and speakers.

    @IA76:

    Activboards are so last year, do away with your projectors and bulbs and also the board get this technology instead: Large Touch Screen Monitor

    Just wish I could afford them in every classroom

    Touch screen are good but i have seen several damaged ones they are easliy damaged with a badly aimed remote (bouncing off childs head) and are much higher cost and very very much smaller and not very readable for the back of a large classroom with normal sized text.

    @ Marc - Engineer
    I can vouch for the Genee offering having seen it in action many times, it has 4mm tempered glass and has been stress tested to very high levels. It's also available up to 65" screen size, which is not bad although there are obviously much larger IWB's on the market.

    But what is the price of the 65" unit when compared to a £1500 whiteboard or interactive projector.

    True it will cost at least double the price of both those items but should need less maintenance over the lifetime of the product which goes some way to balancing the books.

    I do agree that is the way it will go but at the moment there are not the products at the right price to make it worthwhile, it is still more cost effective to use a projector setup, you must when looking at touch screens take in to account the half life of the unit as they also dim with age and it is esier to change a projector lamp than the lamp on a 65" screen (and yes even LED have a half life). But with the comming of laser projectors things may change again (lol.... no i dont mean the casio).
