Digital projector

I need a digital projector, for use in camera clubs, WI's U3A's Etc.

Anyone recommend a decent projector, under 400?

Re: Digital projector

Dave I bought one of these for the club I go to in 2015.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01482LR..._YXLKDbXCAM7M0

They seem to like it. Obviously there will be better ones out now and it depends on how big and how well lit the room is that it's used in. I suspect it's on the simpler side for a serious club though.

Edit: Just saw this which seems to be a similar current version.

Re: Digital projector

I note that you get very different prices on that webpage (second link) if you selected HD vs XGA. The page is for a projector range not a specific model

Whilst that may not be unexpected, I hope you got the resolution you want and did not think you were buying HD but have selected a lower value

regards
Andy

I didn't get it from that page, I got it from another supplier. I checked out reviews and got the HD model at a good price.

Re: Digital projector

Well done Dave. Sorry I didn't realise that link was a generic one. Hope it works well for you. They've certainly made good use of the one I got over the last few years.
