The projector market has expanded in the last few years as in the past digital projectors were mainly used with business organisations where the device was used within boardrooms and conferences. But now these devices have now made their way into the schools, colleges and people's homes. People are now transforming their homes from an entertainment area to full-sized theatres that rivals a cinema in a town centre.
With the rise in the number of projectors available in the market has resulted in more people and business making the decision to buy a projector. The major manufacturers of projectors are Optoma, Acer, Sanyo, Viewsonic and many more.
The most important factor to consider when buying a projector is to be clear about the purpose of what you will use this projector for. There are a number of reasons as to why people will buy a projector such as classroom use, travelling presentations via your laptops, boardroom presentations and home theatre use.
If you are planning to do presentations in lots of places then it is best to look at a projector that is lightweight and portable as you do not want to be carrying a heavy projector around all day. For home users then the best projector to get is a DLP (Digital Light Processing) projector that is 3D and HD compatible. When watching movies or playing the latest games the picture will crystal clear and sharp. If the projector you buy is going to be used outside or in dusty place then you will need to access more information on where you can find cheaper bulbs for the device. Because it will be used in outside/dusty environment, these projectors will have shorter life span for the bulbs as it will attract not only dust but bugs as well as they will be attracted to the light.
Here are five tips for you to use when selecting the right projector:
1. Establish what the projector will be used for.
2. If you are travelling around to do presentations, then it is best to have a projector that is lightweight and portable.
3. Make technical comparisons of projector against your own projectors i.e. lumens, contrast ratio etc.
4. Find out how much a projector bulb will cost so you can determine any future expenses.
5. Look at online forums and review sites in order to get better idea on what people have said but also to compare price as well.
