Thank you for your wise advices, I am delighted to consider now all these
different options. Indeed I think it might be a bit risky to fly in the hope
of getting new good serviced projectors in a brief frame of time, plus it
adds more to the thrill if one is used to work with a certain type. Slim
projectors might as well be the best option to consider here. mmmm....
Thanks again and all the best,
