    It depends on the unit you want. Some come with a cable, others work with the Apple cable.

    One of the newer Casio because their bulbs last a hundred times longer, some of their models can be accessed by wifi and that you can use them with a simple USB key. Plus they're as small as a three ring binder. The one on my wish list is the Xj-A245U

    You can also use any iPod cable that supports video.
    The picture may look bad really big as the iPad output resolution is really not great huge.

    I use the Apple video adapter with my iPad and an LCD projector for astronomy presentations. The iPad's output is only 1024x768, but so is the projector I'm using so it's fine. Only a few programs actually support doing this though, so you'll need to check. It does work with Keynote, but I don't think even the photo viewer supports it (haven't actually checked). The adapter is only $30 at the Apple store.

    I think it is because the device is not really designed for projector use. The lower resolution output can cause problems with some projectors. But with others it will work wonderfully well. You can purchase the Apple video cable or borrow one and take your Ipad with you to a store that has demo units of the projectors and then see which one will work with your device. You can test applications by hooking the cable to the input on your digital tv to see what programs will transmit out with the cable. In fact you may wish to do this first with a borrowed cable before shelling out the money. After all a projector is pretty pricey if you find out that the programs you want to use do not allow video output.

    There are ways to get the Ipad to output all video through the Apple cable, but it involves some tricky maneuvers and will void your warranty with Apple, so I will not discuss that here.
