We're redoing the media room changing out the projector for a significantly smaller Plasma TV which means the Black Flame screen needs to go.

If you or someone you know lives in central Ohio (Columbus area) and have a good home for it and can pick it up locally, please let me know.

You can see more info on this screen in this thread here

Thanks

The projector I had broke and was also sick of replacing expensive bulbs. The 60" TV holds no candle to the 94" from a size perspective. So I ended up just getting a large TV to replace it.

Awww heck. You din't ask the right folks.

I have a spare 8700 with a Extra bulb....very low hours and not a single issue as far as performance / dust / banding /....not nuthin'.
(...and Epson Replacement Bulbs can be had for under $100.00 these days rolleyes.gif )

Being such a stalwart SF owner, you could'a had it for a strong sneeze. Ccertainly for a lot less than any decent Plasma your considering / have bought. Now all ya got is a small sniffle of a screen.

I'll light a candle for you in memory of what "used to was".

(...might have a lead on that screen too...)

From a size perspective, it's about the size of a 4x8 sheet of plywood/mdf. When I originally went and got the wood from HD we used my buddys large SUV. Just wanted to make sure everyone understands the size from a transport perspective.

Saddest thing is losing a SF advocate. One less person for a select few to beat up on. biggrin.gif

I tell you what. All of my friends and family who have seen the screen and it's capabilities think I'm nuts going to a tiny little 60" flat panel. It is going to be a major adjustment for me :/

And they are right. Just when prices fall, performance rises,and Lamps go to 5000hrs + and cost at/under $175.00 average you jump ship.

Makes no real sense at all. frown.gif
