Anyone throw a few pointers at me regarding what spec to look for.

I want to be able to project DVDs from a dvd player or laptop in say a small church hall/ room . Have seen some cheapish mini projectors but not sure what spec is best to look out for.
Also sound may be an issue. Do they just project a picture and you rely upon sound from the device the dvd is playing on.

I have a built in dvd player on a tv set can that also be diverted from showing on the TV and through the projector.

cheers in advance--technology passes me by quite quick these days

Hi, most don't have a built in speaker so if it's for watching films etc you would need at least a set of speakers and at best an amp with speakers.

I have a Benq 1070 which is full HD and 3D. I project to around 110inch at ab'out 3m and its viewable In full day light.

You need to work out your throw distance and wanted screen size. Eg screen is 3m away and I want to reach a 100 inch screen then you need to find an amp capable. Some people may want a 20M throw to a screen of 150 inch. Think of it like a torch when you twist the end to get a finer dot.


This is a bargain.
