To all I need your help!

I am currently looking for a projector for our company to upgrade from our old one.

This has to be compact, has a wide lens and shouldn't cost more than £3000. Does anyone have any ideas as i'm no expert is this field.

Also it doesn't have to be that high quality as it will be used only for powerpoint presentations. ie through an svga connection.

Thanks.

Stan..:D

Thats all very good say for myself. But this is for a company and will need a new projector which also includes a warranty.

Any other ideas?

Ok

How about the new Sony CS4 or even the CS5.

My company have 7 sony projectors now and have proved 100% reliable.

If you buy the CS4 from some outlets it comes with a Free DVD player.

The New CS5 is £1350 + VAT from Inmac
Sony VPL CS5 - LCD projector - 1800 ANSI lumens - 800 x 600

The VPL-CS5 is one of the latest additions to the ranks of high-quality Sony projectors, and is ideal for handling presentations when you are always on the move. Compact and light enough to be easily carried, the VPL-CS5 projector is an excellent choice. The VPL-CS5 provides a brightness of 1800 ANSI lumens, SVGA (800 x 600) resolution and a full range of functions. The VPL-CS5 meets the demands of the road and in the boardroom. The VPL-CS5 adopts Sony original virtual light system with the all-new super high aperture liquid crystal panel and newly developed bright 165W UHP lamp. The all-new elliptical reflector with ultra smooth surface combined with a concave lens enables very small light source and accomplish very high light collection efficiency. This provides the audience with a clear, crisp and bright image every time

Yeah i've just had a look on sony's website and the cs5 looks good. Was also looking at the CX5 because we are looking for an xga capable projector.

Also i've been informed that we have had some bad experiences with sony so i'm thinking thats out of the question.

Can you recommend any other make?

Yes the other company I worked for used Mitsubishi and they were good. Can't actually recomment a model though.

Sanyo also has a good name

Good luck
