Help! What should I make sure I have in a new projector? We need to
replace our LCD projector that was used for teaching computer classes
and to show DVDs in our meeting rooms.

I have started looking over specifications for various models but am
getting lost in all the details. I would like to purchase a less
expensive model, maybe for about $1500.00, but am not sure I will get
the resolution I need to show my movies.

I thought I had saved an article from Sound and Vision that explained
the requirements I would need but I can not find it.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
