Classroom Projectors: Projector Resolution

If you will be projecting PowerPoint type presentations with large fonts and graphics, then your classroom can save money by purchasing an SVGA resolution projector. If you will be using the projector in a high school or college class, we recommend spending a little more for an XGA resolution projector. XGA resolution projectors are designed for more detailed presentations that are perfect for math and science curriculum.

This must be an old tip. I would say never buy SVGA. XGA is acceptable (1024 x 768), but SXGA is better at 1280 x 1024, and SXGA+ is better yet at 1400 x 1050. Compare this to the current standard for home flat screens, 1080p which is 1920 x 1080.
