End of line. Replacement model is the BenQ MX570. Just Projectors thoughts on the BenQ MX507: The MX507 is a great value presentation projector with some great green features. The MX507 is very bright at 3200 lumens, so if you're using it in a classroom or meeting room, you will still get a clear image throughout the day with lots of light in the room. To keep students engaged and create a safe working environment this is really important. At XGA resolution, the MX507 will also display an image crisp enough to show any presentation or spreadsheet, and could cope with short videos reasonably well. We recommend going up to WXGA resolution for movies or long videos as your pixels will not stretch as this is a widescreen resolution. The 13,000:1 contrast ratio will mean that the range of shades from grey to black are in depth and dark images and videos will look defined still. One of the downsides to the MX507 is the fact that it doesn't have a HDMI input, something expected of new projectors, although the VGA input will still allow you to connect to a majority of laptops and PCs. The lamp life on this projector is 10,000 hours if used correctly and with the DLP filter free design, maintenance costs are next to nothing. BenQ boast some great Eco features including Eco Blank Mode, a button teachers can press which will blank the screen and divert the students' attention back to them, whilst lowering the power consumption by up to 70%. To add to this, the MX507 will run at 0.5W power when on standby mode, so if you have the MX507 in multiple classrooms or training rooms, the running costs will be low. Overall a good quality image, let down a little by the lack of HDMI but at such a low price it is good value for money.

About Education Projectors
Education is huge for manufacturers want some of the action so you will often see better warranties for education and excellent discounts when multi purchases are made.
Ultra Short Throw models for Education
We have in the last few years seen the introduction of the Ultra short throws which are ideally mounted over an interactive whiteboard or just a standard whiteboard. The huge benefit of these short throw education units are they do not let the teacher stand there all day with beam of the image into their eye. However with all things the manufacturers have now managed to make many of these short throws are interactive and this has started to see being able to use these projectors just a like projector and whiteboard combination but only at say half the price. Yes they are not as good as the projector and whiteboard but as I said the price is lower but also they are mobile, so maybe a room without the budget for an interactive whiteboard can have an interactive projector. Remember to get the right brightness for your room, short throws don't need so many lumens as they are closer.
Please don't buy SVGA projectors unless your budget is so restricted or its just a back up. Most manufacturers have dumped this low quality resolution because pcs etc that you link too have improved so much that SVGA is really not up to spec and not future proof. XGA resolution has also adapted to a new resolution known as WXGA which is a wide screen resolution. This has been as a result of general tendency for us to want to see more on our displays such as monitors and the software like windows 7 and above allowing us have have multiple windows side by side. Projectors therefore have gone from 1024 x 768 (4:3) pixels on the XGA to 1280 x 800 (16:10). So if you have interactive whiteboards that are 4:3 then go for XGA but the newer whiteboards are 16:10 so go for WXGA.
Lamp Free Models
Frankly this is a bit of a sales pitch to education who tend to run them for the longest time during the day and of course tend to have quote a "green policy" approach to the purchasing. If a school model has a lamp life of say 20,000 hours and cost £1000 and another one costs £400 with a lamp life of 5000 hours and the lamp replacement cost is £100. To get 20,000 hours on the cheaper unit the cost is £400+3 x £100 = £700, a saving of £300. Yes you do have to change the lamps , so there is a bit of hassle but buying a projector solely on lamp life isn't the best use of your money. Also the lamp free ones cant have a replacement, once the lamp life goes then it is thrown away..not that green. Also the DLP /LED Hybrid has had some reported problem in the blues fading, I'm not sure how much of that is such a small percentage but it is still fairly new concept and there are things to iron out.
