    Interesting idea.

    I'll think you need to think about relative chances of replacement cost of projector/bulbs vs whole plasma failure/damage.

    Also, IME some people have hand-eye co-ordination problems with wireless slates vs interactive whiteboards and don't like using them (and therefore don't )

    But if you go ahead- please let us know how it goes

    regards

    I had a HP VP6121 DLP and it was the best bit of kit i ever used (apart from the noise but thats a different story). I did come across the "super blue" phenomenon but this can be rectified by properly colour balancing your laptop output. I did this with my mac mini and it looked incredible. Match that with a 2000:1 contrast ratio and you can blow most LCDs out of the water...
    Those are the ones, I have tried allsorts on the laptop to try and improve the output but all to no joy. Any more advice you can give would be great. for an example the XP task bar blue is what I would say is near enough the "add an attachement" bars blue on this forum, thats how dark the images are, and the MSFT pale greys are white.

    I will say they are not my choice, County Council recomended kit I believe. Trust me, I wouldn't recomend them as the bulbs are very expensive, they are quite big objects compaired to some, and they are DLP which is fine for Home Cinema, and maybe the Drama department, but for Classroom use where the main thing is showing Power Points, teaching applications etc LCD is what you want.

    I like Hitachi and Epson projectors they seem both good bits of kit. I certainly don't like NECs, had two explode on me (not actually on me, but the bulbs went bang and the fan threw glass out into a classroom and a nasty gas came out of them that stained the ceiling brown) Not nice in a primary school.

    I think the early 6121s had issues (one of them being a warn you when its overheated rather than before it does and the "super blue" issue in XP). For XP, i wouldnt know where to start to perform an accurate colour profile setup, macs come with the utilities built in so i just used that. There might be some 3rd party tools that do similar but i dont know of any.

    I had issues with my 6121 when a fan bearing started going, which i just changed out myself and a premature bulb failure (1500 hours if i remember right) but i put it down to bad luck. For the price of the unit the quality i managed to get out of my mac was astonishing, but like i said, it needs colour balancing somehow on XP.

    Re: Can anyone recomend Really Bright Projectors...

    It was the jollies when it happened so nobody was in, i turned it on to test it was working before term started and went out to get food then came back to glass on the floor, and a bit of gas coming out of the projector and a brown stain. It all cleaned up fine, but has as it were scared me for life of NEC projectors. I know its a risk with all units but so far only seen it happen on the NECs
