G90's used to go for $20K-$25K new. Mine was much less. They probably decrease 20% each year. 3 years ago they sold for $15K. 2 years ago, $12K. Last year, $10K.
There are a couple of G90s listed in the AVS Marketplace this week... $6K and $8K (with brand new tubes).
My projector has 8500 hours on the original tubes, with plenty more life left in it, as you can tell.
So overall, the cost is comparable to the current 1080P digital projectors. Especially if you include 8000+ hours worth of replacement lamps.
The G90 weighs 242 pounds
, but CRT is worth the weight

Yeah... pretty annoying, eh?
It's a silly, old tradition from when I used to have a 12' wide screen (172" diagonal). But it helps depict the scale and emphasizes that this isn't a 42" plasma.
The HD-DVD comparisons to HD cable are now posted in this thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post9520361
