I second Larry's point--i think elmos are great for the classroom, esp if you are making work not just screening rented prints from the booth, as in, if you want students to get friendly with projecting. Its unintimidating and quite forgiving of tape splices if that's an issue at all. They wont project backwards which is too bad. I have an Elmo and an Eiki and two Pageants and I love them all for different reasons. I used to hate on B&H's but I have had some nice experiences recently with them so I take it back. Cant beat Pageants for the clean rectangle. Hokushin are obviously perfection, esp if you have a Jeremy R. around to pet them , but I wouldnt let students near one.
