Which digital projector?

Computers, Websites and Other Technology - Talk Photography - www.talkphotography.co.uk
Hello all,

My local branch of a horticultural society is in need of a new digital projector. Our old one was a Hitachi which was only used a couple of times in the two years that we owned it before it broke. We only meet once a month and need a projector for the occasions that a visiting speaker doesn't own one/ when their projector has broken. We have been recommended the BenQ W1080 by the local Richer Sounds shop at £550 (with 3 year warranty because it's not for personal use). It will mostly be used for projecting pictures, very rarely we have a speaker who will incorporate a small video clip but usually nothing of particularly high quality.

Does anyone on here have much experience with these projectors? As a committee member I'm trying to make sure that we aren't spending too much money unnecessarily. I was wondering if buying 2nd hand is a viable option or do they tend not to last that long? Would that particular model be your recommendation within a £550 budget or could we find something more suitable for less? If we did look for a used projector are there any brands which have a better reputation for reliability and what should I be looking out for?

As you can tell I haven't much of a clue when it comes to these so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Mat.
