"Freaking. Awesome. I’ve never played with a whiteboard. I could not believe how seamless the experience was. Set up was relatively straightforward. ...Bloody fantastic piece. Polished, well executed. Loved it! Interactivity aside, it’s a good projector too. Will be recommending it highly. Writing the review will be a hoot!" --- Tom Sallows, Projector.com regarding the ProjectoWrite2.

Testimonials from educators and some education customer list
- North Mason School District, Belfair, WA
"Incorporating the BOXLIGHT technology in my science classroom has been very beneficial for the learning of all students. Students are highly engaged when they become part of the instruction and develop their own learning using the interactive whiteboard and microphone. The interface is quick to learn and students pick up on it in no time. I look forward to implementing many facets of instruction using the BOXLIGHT, including simulated dissections."
