Subject: Used projector list Feb 1, 2004
Here again is a list of used projectors that are in stock. There's a number of new units here, and I've just made several bulk purchases that should make the next couple of lists very interesting. As always, all prices are in US dollars. If you want off this list, just send me a quick email and I'll take you off right away.
1- Sony 1041 video projector. This one just came in on trade. It's a video and S-video only projector with 700 lumens light output from 7" Sony tubes. The tubes are in good shape and will last about 6000 hours. THe case has some scratches on it, so the set is being sold a bit less than others. Analog convergence, a good reliable small and quiet unit. I'll list this one on eBay shortly.
1- Sony 1031. This is a good condition 7" ES focus projector good as an entry level set that will accept a line doubler and HDTV. The tubes are in good shape, they put out 600 lumens, and will last about 7000 hours. 36 KHz scan rate max, analog convergence for an easy set up. Great to get into a home theater that will walk all over a digital projector at a fraction of the cost. There's lots of these out there still running strong. I'll be listing this one on eBay tomorrow.
2- Zenith PRO 851. I've got two of these in stock again. Great convection cooled video only units. The most popular sports bar projector around. THe 7" tubes generally last 12,000 hours, and produce 650 lumens. Analog convergence, a great image out of these. If you have an application where you need a projector to work for a long period of time sucha s in a pub or bar, this is the best choice for you. C/W wireless remote control.,
3- AmPro 2000. All of these sets are very low hour projectors. One reads 8 hours, one reads 0 hours and one has 161 hours on it. Naturally these have zero tube wear on them, are razor sharp, and you can expect to get 10,000 hours out of the tubes. These aren't all of the 2000's that I have in stock, I've got another 7 or so that I have not looked at yet, but these are the cream of the crop so to speak. Video, S-video and RGB inputs, 80 Khz scan rate, HDTV ready. Two of these sets have the 750 lumen tubes in them, one has the 600 lumen tube in it. 100% modular for easy servicing down the road. I've installed a new memory backup battery as all of the ones in these sets were flat. Very simple digital convergence to set up, and superb fleshtones on these sets. For those of you looking for something like a Sony 12XX or Barco 800/801 series (that I'll have back in stock shortly), consider these units. All come with full manuals and wireless remote controls. A higher hour Ampro 2000 unit is on ebay here:http://cgi.*********/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...category=32862
750 lumen sets $850.00
600 lumen set $750.00
2- Runco DTV 852. Great compact projectors based on the Zenith PRO 900x with a Runco built in line doubler, these sets automatically take the video and S-video signals and convert them to 480p. A separate RGB input is also available for feeding HDTV directly to the CRT's. Very quiet operation, digital convergence, 800 lumens, on screen menus, etc. 50 Khz scan rate allow for up to 1024 X 768 resolution. Very sharp tubes using the latest in ES focusing technology. Long tube life out of these sets, and they are 100% modular. Late model units dating from 1996-1998, they retailed for over $12K USD when new from Runco. Great for an all-in one type HT without having to mess with external scalers or doublers and extra cables. I've got 3 more of these coming in shortly. I've replaced the G and B tubes with new ones (not rebuilt), the red is in mint shape. You'll get the full rated 10,000 hours out of these tubes. c/w wireless remote control and the manual
1- Electrohome ECP 4500. This is the latest version of the ECP series of popular Electrohome sets. 700 lumens from Sony 07MS tubes, the tubes are in good shape and will last over 7000 hours. Dual RGB inputs, along with video and S-video for a versatile set up. Digital convergence, on screen menus, easy to set up. 80 Khz scan rate for well over HDTV resolution. Very modular construction for ease of servicing. Optional ACON auto convergence cameras available, see the bottom of this list. c/w wireless remote and manual On eBay here:http://cgi.*********/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...tem=3074459017
Note that I have one more 4500 and two 4100's still in stock waiting to be looked at.
1- GE 901/NEC 9 PG. This is a good condition 7" EM focus projector that has low chassis hours (about 1900). 92 Khz scan rate, RGB inputs allow for resolutions well past line quadrupling. 800 lumens from 7 1/2" NEC tubes. Digital convergence, on screen menus. Very natural fleshtones. case in good shape. Here's the tube condition: The R and B tubes are flawless, zero wear. The green tube that is currently installed also has zero wear, but has a flaw in the phosphor just off the center of the tube that causes a tiny pink dot, smaller than a missing pixel on a digital projector. I've tried picking the dot up with my camera, and it's just too small to detect with it. I also have in stock a green tube with low hours (about 2000) with very light and even wear over the phosphor area. Your choice, I'll sell this set with either tube installed
$2100.00 - VDC green tube installed
1- NEC 9 PG Xtra. This is the model up from the NEc 9 PG/GE 901 above. This set uses larger tubes than the regular PG series for 1000 lumens light output. Same specs otherwise as the NEC PG above. Video and S-video card is installed in this set, as is the 100 point convergence board. The case is in good shape, as are the tubes, that will last about 7500 hours. The picture and performance is almost as good as an NEC XG projector at a lower price. Note that I'm getting 8 more PG Xtras in very shortly. On eBay here:http://cgi.*********/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...tem=3075619348
1- AmPro 3600. One set left in god working shape, you'll get about 6000 hours out of the tubes. 1200 lumens from 8" EM focus tubes. 110 Khz scan rate. Digital convergence, on screen menus, lots of parameters to fully dial each tube to perfection. c/w wired remote control
1- BArco G 808s. This is a true 8" EM focus set that produces 1200 lumens. 110 Khz scan rate, digital convergence, video, S-video and RGB inputs. On screen menus, very easy to set up. This set uses the Sony tubes instead of the MEC tubes. The Sony tubes are a bit sharper, and this chassis has the IRIS auto convergence camera installed. The tubes are in good shape and will last another 7000 hours or so. Very light even shading on the green tube and a bit on the blue as well. Flawless operation of all aspects of the set. Digital convergence, on screen menus, 100% modular construction
NEC XG projectors. Once again I have several XG projectors in stock. As many of you know, the NEC XG is my personal favorite projector, and I once again have one proudly hanging on my ceiling..:-) All XG sets feature 1200 lumens from 8" EM focus tubes, have video, S-video and RGB inputs, onscreen menus, 100 point convergence adjustments per tube, electronic astig adjustments, 9 zones of focusing per tube allowing extreme accuracy in dialling in the image. I'll admit to watching the 1/2 time show today during Superbowl, and the image off the Canadian HDTV feed was amazing. All of these sets are in excellent shape. The conditions are as described below. I'm giving a retubed price as well as a lower price to reflect original tubes with very low wear as these are all low hour sets. All come with the manual and a full function wireless remote control.
2- XG 75. 75 Khz scan rate. Both sets have very light B and G wear, it's not necessary to retube these units, they can easily be used as is for well over 6000 hours. One is on ebay here: http://cgi.*********/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...category=32862
$2600.00 as is for each one, $3400.00 with rebuilt B and G tubes

1- Electrohome 9500LC. Actually this set is not here yet, it will be here in 2 weeks. This set has had all tubes replaced about 200 hours ago with VDC rebuilds, and the set is in excellent working condition. 1300 lumens from 9" LC tubes, 135 Khz scan rate, 150 Mhz video bandwidth, every possible option and feature is included in this set for control of the image. On screen menus, 100% modular construction, very easy to set up and dial in. 1 year warranty on the VDC tubes. Case in great shape.
