We've been using Hitachi projectors for a number of years.  The current
model we buy is the CP-X306 for "regular" projector installs (a little
under $800).  I also have purchased some Hitachi projectors that allow
over-the-network projection, such as the CP-X308, which made a
ceiling-mounted installation a little easier for our needs - but they
were $200+ more than the non-networked model.

Troxell Communications has been our vendor of choice for larger
projector purchases.  We've tried Tiger for a few quotes for different
types of equipment but they never won our business.

Subject: Projector purchase


Hi All,

I am looking to buy around 6-10 projectors and am wondering if anyone
has a recommendation.  These will be used in classrooms, so lighting is
a bit of an issue.  We are hoping to get a couple of Smartboards soon,
so I'd hope the projectors I buy would be up to snuff for that
application.  I usually use Tiger for purchases like this but if someone
can recommend a different vendor I'm open to that.  We haven't had our
current projectors long enough for me to have a brand preference or
determine the life expectancy of the ones we do have; hopefully someone
on this list has.
