In this, the third of our posts looking at the adoption of the Kensington security slot, we turn our attention to projectors. An essential piece of kit in education, business and entertainment, projectors have come a long way from the hefty overhead and slide projectors. These days the market is based around digital light processing (DLP), LCD, and liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) engines, with models offering different brightness levels, contrast ratios and resolutions. One thing many of the leading projectors have in common, however, is the Kensington Security Slot. Here’s a quick look at a few of the best – and most secure – projectors.

ASUS P2B

The palm-sized ASUS P2B has been designed to provide a mobile and affordable alternative to larger projectors. Ideal for gaming and home entertainment, the P2B is an LED project that’s capable of displaying content in HD 12800 x 800 resolution and with 350 ANSI lumens of brightness, Users can access their files via their smartphone, micoSD card or USB, that is, without the need for a laptop.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3500

As the name suggests, the Epson Home Cinema 3500 has been designed with a specific audience in mind. Larger than the ASUS, it delivers full HD 1080p and 2500 lumens of brightness. The rabbit out of the hat, however, is the PowerLite’s 3D capability, which makes it ideal for home theaters.

The NEC NP-P501X is less about home entertainment and more about providing businesses with a solid and versatile projector for presentations. Competitively priced, it’s particularly popular with large organizations and educational institutions.

Panasonic PT-RZ370U Projector

A specialist and highly impressive projector, the Panasonic PT-RZ370U is the last model to feature in our round-up of projectors with Kensington Security Slots.

Projector 1

All of the projectors featured in this post are specialist and expensive pieces of equipment. The way they’re used in schools and office environments, however, means they can be particularly vulnerable to theft; something reflected by the fact that all of these models feature a Kensington Security Slot. Securing your projector with a laptop-style lock is a simple and safe way of protecting your investment.
