    Recommend projector

    One of classroom's projector is going to get a replacement bulb for third time so would you recommend a LED? Anyone in here have similar experience?

    Your inputs would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeff

    LED Projectors (like the casio ones) are AMAZING! Praticly instant on/off with little or no noise.

    Price is high but they work great

    Just be careful with *extremelyu* well lit rooms. Got a couple in one of my primaries where the fluorescent lights are a PITA. Other than that, quality is excellent and wouldn't look back.

    Aye, the Casios are amazing. Only caveat: the mounting holes in them (A- and M- series) are M3 not M4 like every other projector out there, so you'll have fun trying to attach it to an existing mount. It can be done, with the clever application of bolts, washers and some proper bodge work, but it does ruin an otherwise perfect product. Once it's up though it won't really matter anymore.

    EDIT: ooh, shiny star! that's new.

    Thanks everyone for the quick comments.

    May I have some links that I can show to? I found some that is under 300 dollars something like that but I'm not sure if this is right one.

    XJ-A140 - CASIO Projectors is pretty much the model you want. You can go up or down on the lumens but the 3000 lumens is silly-price and the 2000 isn't much cheaper. There's also the XJ-M140 but it's a bit bigger and has less zoom range on it.

    They're about £700 before tax over here so expect them to be pricey. TCO is lower though due to no bulbs.

    Casio LED projectors with the education 5year warranty. Recently purchased a couple of XJ-M140's while they were on offer for under £600
