I can't believe this "design feature"still exists!

No, I do not recommend this product.
Everything is great about this projector (at least for the 10 minutes I've used it). I absolutely wouldn't recommend it, due to the projector not passing through the video to the computer monitor, when the projector is turned off. I can't believe that a manufacturer would still produce a projector, which requires the bulb to be energized, to use the computer. I know that video splitter cables are available, but our school purchased 35 of these projectors. Primarily because the replacement bulb price is much less than other projectors. We never thought that we'd need the splitter cables too. Using splitter cables noticibly reduces the brightness of both the monitor and the projector. So much for 2500 lumens. This "design feature" is not mentioned in the description.
