Buyers Guide

Buying projectors is more complicated than it seems as the technical terms make it worse. We do recommend you call us for advice as often we save you money and make sure you get the right solution.

The thing to remember is you know what you want to use the projector for and you know your rough audience size . Using the filters the choose will be reduced and be more tailored for your needs. If you want specific info about the type of item you are buying then we have some specific advice guides below. If you are installing the projector you need to know

  • The model number of the existing projector if you have one
  • Current Image width or the image size you roughly want 
  • Current distance projector is placed if you have one

This gives an idea of the lens throw ratio you need. If you want to install you will need advice via the phone 01256 882629 or online chat (bottom right hand on our site) as there are more pitfulls than you can manage.
