As part of my theater construction, I'm replacing my existing Stewart FireHawk screen with an acoustically transparent Screen Research model.
My FireHawk is a 108" diagonal first-generation FireHawk, and it's a motorized roll-down. It's in perfect condition.
I'd like to sell it, but I have honestly no idea what this screen is worth. I looked around a bit online but I didn't find much information, so I thought I'd ask here if anybody can suggest a ballpark value.
I actually have a potential local buyer, but I told him I'd need to research prices so that we can reach a fair agreement.
My usual guideline for a used item without ebay guidance for pricing is to take 30% off retail for perfect condition items.... screens may be different though I suppose.
It's not as if it's an outdated or obsolete item.
Thanks for the kind offer, by the way.
It comes down to what the market will bear in your location. If no one is interested in it, then you won't get top $$
For instance, 36" Sony CRT SD TVs. Still have a fantastic picture but the owners what the 240lb monster out of the living room for a substandard LCD that can be moved.. What are they worth ..$0, no one wants them! Never mind they have another 10 years of life and none of the video artifacts you get with fixed pixel displays.. motion issues.. black level. dead pixels...failed inverters.. etc etc..
I've got a Stewart Firehawk, 1st gen, likes yours. It looks great with 1080p material. I'm on my 2nd 1080p projector, currently the JVC DILA RS45. The reason Stewart is worth more is their tab tension system. For an electric screen the Stewart stays nice a rigid. After 8+ years, the screen has no sags.
