Digital projectors

Do any of you guys out there have any knowledge, use a digital projector for presentations/talks? There seems to a paucity of information in the camera mags on this subject. I assume that LCD is better than DLP technology when it comes to projecting stills? I am looking for a 2,000 to 3000 lumens, XGA projector but what manufacture and where to buy from in the UK. Any info would be gratefully accepted.

If you are using it for a camera club, you will probably eventually need to go for 1400x1050 resolution. This is becoming the basic size now for most competition entries.

We have a Canon projector and those who are in the know at the club reckon this is probably the best available at the moment. The model is an A80 I think?

Moved from the 'Just Joined' as 'General Digital Photography' is more relevant to the question, and may well get you more answers.
