    We've got three portable ones, used all the time and the staff love them. We have a big one which I believe is still in a box under the teacher's desk.

    I've got one and I haven't used it as much as I thought - but that was more to do with the layout of my room rather than the visualiser.

    I posted a brief review of my Avermedia CP130 a while ago - they aren't bad considering what you pay for them. I'm not sure I'd go to the expense of a top of the range one.

    We have a Samsung model in one of our classrooms - I think it gets used a fair bit but that's because the teacher asked for it and therefore champions it. Was bought before my time though and I have just looked up the price - over 1,000. Not sure if it's good value for money.

    If you have to buy a visualiser, something like the Easi-View would seem to be the best bet:

    TTS - Easi-View

    (or at least it would be if it was released yet, anyway).

    we have loads of these in school and they are great value for money as some visualisers are very expensive and this has some good functionality for a good price. I like the way you can zoom with the camera and it auto focus for you, you can take photos of what the camera is looking at that is stored on the device.

    We have ours hooked up to teachers pc and projector so they can project either the pc screen or visualiser.

    Very handy piece of kit especially for english, science and dt departments.

    No issues since install, they dont need drivers either and as we are on a cc3 network that makes life so much easier!!!

    I agree with dhicks, we decided here that a 'proper' visualizer was not worth the money so we purchassed a few Logitech Quickcam 9000's, retort stand and clamps from science and some cable ties. Five minutes work and they give a much better picture as well as a few more flashy features. Visualizer cost = 350, Ours=90

    Admitdly it doesnt look as well presented but our teachers here seem to like them!

    On the subject of these bits of kit, most of them use an OEM version of the "Amcap" software - one of the most notoriously buggy and memory-leak ridden pieces of software to grace a Proper Computer. So, can anyone recommend a free video capture program capable of freezing/stills capture, realtime previews etc? Plenty around via a google but I'd rather know if anyone is successfully using something - speaks so much louder than a random googlehit

    So all we need to do now is get a job lot of webcams shipped in from china, find a reliable supplier of science lab equipment, get a few bits and bobs from B&Q and charge 199 per visualiser...
