A small school I help out has asked me whether the following is a good projector to buy:
Acer X1160 Projector Projector EY.J5601.001 - PC World Business Online Store UK - Buy The Best Deals Online.
I'm not sure about Acers so is this a good buy?
They are after a basic cheap projector as they have very limited funds. It's not going to be doing anything fancy so DLP/800x600 is fine.
dabs.com - NEC NP100 2000 Ansi SVGA Projector (60002292)
Any other recommendations for projectors around this price.
I personally like Acer .... but I would take the NEC projector over an Acer any day. If budgets are a factor id plump for which ever had the cheapest bulbs.
Correct focal length
3 year on-site warranty
1 Year lamp warranty or spare lamp
We have a lot of cheap Acer projectors, and they are ok, but only ok.
the Toshiba SP1 is a winner in schools if budgets are a little tight, they are around the two hundred pound mark. Check the web
OK, had a bit more time to do some investigations - both come out about £220..ish
Acer: 2 year warranty and replacement lamps are about £200+
NEC: 3 year warranty and replacement lamps are about £130.
So definitely looks like the NEC one so far.
Also, have now found this:
3 Years Yrs 1: Loan-Exchange - Yrs 2/3: carry-in Repair & Return - 6 Months or 1000 hr (whichever sooner) cover on bulbs
Replacment lamps seem to be about £170-£200.
Are BenQs any better?

I would go for either NEC or Epson. Have seen mitsubishi's and other ones fall like flys or have issues and NEC's and Epsons at least from experience I have had have been really good.
Toshiba SP1 £252 inc vat at PC World Business.
You really should go for an XGA projector (1024 x 768) as recommended by BECTA.
This will ensure it works with newer laptops/PCs.
We have a great offer on a Sanyo XGA projector which I will PM you.
Do you want a closed shop?
i.e only advertisers & the favoured few allowed to post & PM you with details of products & advice you have asked about.
or do you want genuine information about products / services that help?
I will be guided by you (not my competitors).
It's not a closed shop it's just that edugeek costs a lot to run and these advertisers pay money which goes towards the running of the site.
As part of this financial commitment it means they are free to advertise their goods and services in threads such as this.
If I don't want to buy from CP or anyone else then I won't I am quite capable of going elsewhere for quotes etc...
If I want a quote from your company I'd contact you and ask for one.
Why don't you stump up some advertising cash or do you think you can punt your wares for free on here?
