Nadine,

There's no magic formula for choosing a machine, but there are many very
important things to keep in mind. I think that, given your current
circumstances, you should start your process by checking out the following
link:

Anything that I would try to explain will be covered in this site.

Hi,

Please excuse cross-posting...

Can anyone recommend (or NOT recommend!) a specific machine that can be
used to project videos and DVDs onto a "large" screen? The room we would be
using it in seats approx 200 at the max (100 on one side of the room, 100
on the other). At some point also, we may be looking at the same unit to
use with a computer. One thing to take in consideration--we don't have a
lot of money (like under $1000) to spend. Are we being realistic in
thinking we can find something? We borrowed a unit this summer from the
school system (not sure of the brand), that could be hooked up to either a
VCR or DVD player and was fairly easy to use, but cost in the vicinity of
$5000 when new, and replacement bulbs are about $300. Thanks for any help
you can provide...
