Projector for £400


Active Member
hi, let me first say 'i dont know anything about projectors!'


i want one to use in my room at university as it is smaller and easier to move around rather than a CRT or LCD tv.

i would like widescreen prefably, the projector will probably be about 10ft roughly from the wall.

my budget is £400, what can i get? :thumbsup:

Need to spend a little more and get a benq W100 I think, it's quiet, produces a good picture and has all the connections you could want, which is more than can be said for a lot of the models around that price range.

I agree with the BenQ W100 - it's the best entry level projector available, it will cost nearer £500 but is worth the extra cash.

not sure if its any good but you can get the dell 2400 or around £522 after 33% from dell at the moment and also if you open a quidco account (very easy and free! used it before and it works!) and get a further 46% off!!!!

should be £1184 reduced to £832 and after quidco £522!!!!

Don't forget that most projectors have no sound output and no TV tuner so you might have to budget for both of these. Also they have to be used in a dark room.
