Video Projectors:Where to Buy

Video Projectors (Where to Buy, Saving Money, Advice)

From my experience Sony, Panasonic, Sanyo and Eiki represent the best value in video projectors. I recommend that you see the video projector before buying it. If you buy an inexpensive video projector, you might be disappointed in the quality of the picture. Please remember that if the place where you use it is not real dark, you need more brightness or ansi lumens to get a good picture. If you are in dark conditions, you should get at least 500 or 600 ansi lumens. If you are trying to use the video projectors in a light area, you need at least 1000 ansi lumens.

I recommend talking to or corresponding with Jim Kovalik at Evangelical Purchasing Service for good advice. However, he just sells the Eiki brand. If you want to talk to a company that sells a lot of different brands, please contact Fowler Productions. They also sell some software for $349 to display songs, sermon notes, and do presentations similar to Microsoft Powerpoint presentations.

Below is from Jim at Evangelical purchasing service.

Dear Ken,
The lowest priced new projector is EIKI LC-180AR for $ 1695 with 200 lumens. The next step up is 500 lumens, LC-360 for $ 2395. And they go up in price and lumens from there. I don't deal in used projectors and that's always risky as well.
Your coworker,
