Need help with finding a good projector

Hello in the market for a good projector.

Needs to be pretty bright.

Needs a vga connection.

does not need sound.

The throw lens does not matter : short or long throw

Will be viewed up to couple hundred people in a large room.

Any recommendations?

uh you'd be surprised.

If you have the money go with Panasonic. The more lumens the better.
The rule with projectors is that you want to purchase one that is 30% more then you'll ever need. Reason being is that projecters tend to loose their initial brightness within their first couple weeks of use.

Be sure to keep the air intake clean as debris build up in the fan intake can burn out the lamp. Most projecters have multiple I/O types so you won't have trouble finding one with VGA.

For budget, Sanyo has some decent models that can take a beating... well at least they used to.

Keep your eye out for pawn shops, I bought a 10k HD projector for 400.00 works prefect.
Also bought a Canon GL2 Camera for 250.00, it sells today for 2700.00

pawn shop and special places.

For a room with that many people you are gonna need at least a 4k projector - more than likely 6.5 k or so.
