Projectors

Home and business projectors are not the same. Find out how they differ from each other.

<---cs:Price range:cs---> Price range

The introduction of DLP has dramatically dropped the average price of projectors. Thanks to increasing competition between different technologies, you can now pick up a projector for $2000 that would have cost $10,000 just a few years ago. Low-end projectors can be bought for as little as $1500, but don't expect them to be particularly useful in anything other than a small dark room. If you want a projector capable of high brightness levels (around 2000-2500 lumens) then expect the price to rise to the $3000+ mark depending on added features. A full high-definition 1080p projector, suitable for HD-DVD, Blu-ray and HD gaming projection will set you back even more due to the fact that is a new and emerging technology.

For a more portable model, you will have to pay even more. If you are looking for a state of the art, permanent installation for a large hall or conference room, you will be looking at upwards of $10,000 (sometimes as high as $50,000 or $75,000). Generally with projectors you get what you pay for. There are a wide range of factors to consider, and not all will be relevant to your specific circumstances. If you plan ahead, know the scenarios in which you are likely to be using it and if you do your homework, you will be able to find a projector to suit your needs.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
