Classroom Projector Comparison Chart

Below, we have a chart that will succinctly compare some key specifications of each of the education projectors considered in this year’s classroom projector report, and below the main chart, a chart of last year’s winners that are still current and available in quantity at least through the summer of 2015.

To scroll through this chart – there are many columns not visible – place your cursor anywhere inside the chart and hold down your mouse or touchpad, and move to the right to see the additional specs (or move to the left to go back to the left side).
