Buying an LCD projector is not an insignificant investment, so you'll want to think carefully about how you're going to use the projector so you can match the features you need with the best price point. For instance, an LCD projector's brightness is a key buying factor, but if you're not planning to frequently give presentations in large conference rooms or classrooms, you may not need high performance in this area. 

Before you buy, be sure to consider the following 6 elements. 

  • Weight
  • Contrast 
  • Brightness
  • Connectivity
  • Resolution
  • Lamp life 

Be sure to also keep in mind the fact that these devices are easily available for rental. If you don't plan on using one all that often, that may be your best alternative.
