Best Projector for K-12 Educators – Casio XJ-M245

This feature-packed projector is ideal for K-12 teachers on a budget. Featuring LED projection (which means no costly lamp to replace!), the Casio XJ-M245’s 1.5x optical zoom allows students to easily see the content. Use MobiShare® to wow your students by projecting content right from your smart phone or tablet computer, then pull out the 3D glasses because the XJ-M245 is DLP 3D-ready… to blow your students away!

Best Projector for College Students – Vivitek Qumi

Or as we like to call it: the Mighty Mouse of projectors. College students love the Qumi for its size (wayyy smaller and lighter than your Chemistry book) and ferocious features: it’s 3D-ready, high-definition and includes an LED lamp, so you’ll never have to buy an expensive bulb!

The Qumi can easily be connected to a variety of devices including, but not limited to smart phones, laptops, netbooks and tablets, digital and video cameras. Brighter than most comparable projectors, the Qumi is available in both black and white versions in case you want to color-coordinate with your new iPhone. Sweet!

Best Projector for Travelling Professors – Hitachi CPX9

Are you a road-warrior teacher, travelling from classroom to classroom, who needs a light, easy-to-use projector at an affordable price? Hey, we know those adjunct positions don’t come with lots of dollar signs attached, but we’re here to help!

Check out the Hitachi CPX9 – our pick for a “major bang for minor buck” projector. At 3200 lumens, the CPX9 is one of the brightest entry-level projectors and is equipped with an LCD lamp for crisp, clear color reproduction. It’s easy to connect to various inputs and includes a built-in speaker… just another thing you won’t have to carry with you!

The bargain price includes a case and remote to make taking the small CPX9 along in your laptop bag a breeze. And if life on the road is a little hard on your projector, don’t worry—the CPX9 is backed by a three-year warranty.

Best Interactive Projector Mount for Educators – Chief Interactive Mount

We love this mount so much that we already wrote a blog post about it.

Here’s the skinny—if you want a lifetime of interactivity from low-price projectors, make the investment up-front for the Chief interactive mount and you’ll be happily interacting with your content for years to come. The mount works with any short-throw projector and turns any wall into an interactive surface.

Best Interactive Projector for K-12 Classrooms – Epson 455WIRM BrightLink

This ultra-short throw powerhouse is perfect for K-12 educators who want complete interactivity without a bulky interactive board.

The BrightLink’s flexible design allows it to project interactive content on nearly any surface including a wall, whiteboard or chalkboard (by mounting with the included wall mount or on a cart) or a table with the optional Copernicus interactive table mount.

The flexibility extends to the projection size, too! Educators can easily adjust the interactive projection size from 59” to 96” to suit their space and needs.

The BrightLink is bundled with RM EasiTeach software, so creating interactive content is a snap. Already using a different kind of curriculum software at your school? No problem! The BrightLink 455WIRM is cross-compatible with existing curriculum software.

While we love all of the features that make the BrightLink easy to use, your budget will love the price! The Epson 455WIRM is priced significantly lower than comparable interactive whiteboards and is just as feature-rich.
