I just upgraded to a Greyhawk and need to find out how much to sell my StudioTek 130 Microperf 16:9 for. It is a nine month old screen in mint condition. Does not include the frame.
Any ideas as where to look? I have looked on Ebay and several other forums with no luck.
It retailed for $3K.
Thanks - Mase
No way, it's definitely worth more than that (I hope!?). Microperfing your screen doubles the cost over a regular screen with a frame. That's got to retain its value really well, you can't get a perf that fine without some serious equipment. Out of that 3k, your frame does not take up more than a fifth of the price. OTOH, if you want to sell it to me for $500 without a frame... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif
You should also talk to Stewart about maybe trading it in or getting a discount for your Greyhawk, from what everyone has been saying they are very helpful. For example, I think the users at www.thebigpicturedvd.com forums got to trade in their Stewart screens for Greyhawks if they were bought after a certain date.
Ok, I guess I was a bit low but here's how I arrived at that figure. First, I have seen the usual stewart 54x96 perf screen go for around $1100-1300 used with the frame. I was under the impression that the frame would cost between 400-600 for this model, so more likely I should have pegged the price at between 500-700. However I could be wrong in the cost of the frame as I only had one source to go by.
I couldn't begin to tell you what the screen material is worth, but I would offer a suggestion. Try contacting Stewart to see if they can help you out or at least find out what a frame costs. Unfortunately, I think your going to have a hard time selling a screen without a frame. If you had the price of the frame then at least you could narrow down a more accurate selling price of the material by itself.
