    Projector suggestion please

    The Optoma DS311 projectors I put in just over a year ago are dropping like flies - they keep losing colour sync and going psychedelic - so I'm looking for other options that give us what the Optoma's do: BASIC (read "consumable"!), bright classroom projectors.

    Criteria:
    At least 2100 lumens
    no more than £240 each
    resolution: at least SVGA
    Inputs: vga and composite
    6000 hour lamp life

    Any suggestions?

    Try the Acer x110p, I'm pretty sure the specs are similar. Normally they costs around the £220 mark (although the last batch we had in were only £205.

    If you tell them your Education you should get a better warranty most do 5 years now, but your other Optoma units are DLP NEVER buy a DLP unit for a school they are not up to it on any make DLP are NOT reliable at all.

    I don't know how rapidly you go through bulbs, but have you considered an LED projector instead?

    The Casio ones comes with a 5 year guarantee for education and there are no filters to clean and no bulbs to change... I love them! I paid just over £600 ex VAT for an XJ-M130EDU last term.

    When you consider the cost of bulbs you would use in a conventional projector over the 5 year guarantee period for the Casio one, it doesn't make it expensive.
