Old Equipment

Many hotels have equipment that is old and outdated. Hotels don't typically upgrade or purchase new projectors because they don't need them on a regular basis.

Often the projectors are poorly maintained and can produce low lumens from an old bulb, be full of dust, have a dirty lens, or may possibly skew images. By renting a projector through you can be sure that you are getting top of the line equipment that has the latest technology and is well maintained.

Tech Support

Usually hotels lack experienced technical personnel. They will most likely send someone who has little knowledge on how to help you with an technical issues that may arise. It can take a significant amount of time to get your problem taken care of, causing you frustration. There is nothing as aggravating as trying to get help from someone who tries acting like they are knowledgeable on a subject that they know little about.
