You will certainly be able to get a good projector for the money you mention Steven. Your ICT people should know best, but try having a look at sites such as http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk to see their 'best buys' and http://www.dabs.com or http://www.simply.co.uk to get some online ideas. Might even be worth enquiring at a few local shops to see if they can offer you any educational discounts?

Nicky and I have exactly the same projector!
I too have the same high opinion of it.

In response to the very well made and clearly valid point made by my colleague Mr A Walker, I would just like to say:
I hope none of you guys are on commission for hawking these projectors through the discussion forum!!!!
"Whilst I believe that the Sanyo PLC-SW20 is a digital projector of much quality and usefulness, I am aware that there are other projectors on the market for use in schools that could also provide you with good service and image quality.
My comments on the Sanyo PLC-SW20 projector sould in no way be taken as a financially induced advertisement for this product or as an instruction to any other teacher to by said product.
If you do buy the Sanyo PLC-SW20 and it fails to live up to your expectations, I take no responsbility for this fact."
I think that covers it!
Having said all that, it is a damn fine projector and I would tell anyone who asked me about is that it is highly suitable for classroom use. It is also very good for using elsewhere in the school, as it has been out of my classroom to the hall, library and SMT meeting room in the last week.

P.S. You will need to possibly buy an extension cable for use in some rooms as the included one is bit short.

A very interesting point.
We have an IW in one of our classrooms sitting idle because the projector lamp bulb costs £500 to replace. That's a lot of text books!
New technology - high expense.
However as someone who has a projector and a device that creates a sort of interactive whiteboard, I can say that I would rather have all of that than a new pile of textbooks any day of the week.
Used well with an internet connection and full understanding of PowerPoint, a teacher can do a lot more learning for their students with the technological solution.
