Projector recommendations for public speakers

January 23, 2010 at 8:51 pm Leave a comment

One of my former students for speaking coaching wrote today and said she had some upcoming speaking engagements at which the venues did not supply the LCD projector she needed to show her slides and she wanted my recommendation on what to buy.

Here’s what I wrote her:
If I were buying today, here’s what I would get:
Bill’s recommended LCD projector

In general, I recommend:
Light: less than 5 pounds, even better less than 4 pounds, but you sometimes sacrifice brightness or price when you go that small
Brightness: 2500 lumens or more; this one has 3000
XVGA quality image if it is not too expensive and the brightness and weight are good. This one has that. You could drop down to XGA and save $100 but I wouldn’t.

Hope this helps.


[Disclosure: the recommended projector link has my affiliate link built in. I get a commission if you buy it through this link. I still recommend this one, though, and it won’t cost you any more to use my link. And it will help support this free blog.]

What I am learning from talking to people who hire speakers Maybe the purpose of my life is to serve as a warning to others
