    Replacement projector needed

    The 'mobile' projector we have has decided to die on us. It's a Sony VPL-EX4. I'm looking for something suitable to replace it.

    It is used with a laptop on a trolley and a portable screen and typically is about 2 metres from the screen.

    Price is important, as is the longevity!

    Suppliers, my HT is inspecting another school and the Bursar is on a course, so I am geting prices in advance of their return on Thursday. I will have to wait my turn to see them about this, so please bare with me... I will get back to you, hopefully by Friday, but if things go badly it might be early next week. The projector has to be replaced, they just don't know it yet!

    One word... cost! I cannot see me getting the budget for one, even with its long life

    I've taken said projector to bits (again) this morning and, of course, it's been sitting merrily working away on my desk for the last hour

    Not to be relied on though... Simon has sent a PM. Anyone else?

    Don't be putting money on that yet mate I won my bet with a mate I said that stock of any kind (bar the Casio Demo units obv!) wouldn't be in before 1st April and won that, should have put a bigger one on him for end of April at this rate....

    Don't know how much you were thinking of spending but for a portable unit I'd hope the Casio's new technology to be more robust than normal lamps so may well be a better investment.
