I like that idea, I'll run it in high lamp tonight and see what happens. Failing that I'll open it up and check for oxidation.

I'm in Canada as well and when I bought mine last year, the list was what I said it was. I didn't know it jumped a $1000 since then. Other than the 5% GST, no tax where I am, nor in Alberta.

I don't understand how this projector could jump in price so significantly like that. Demand maybe? It's unreal that someone could pay $2000 more than what I did, just over a year ago. Insane.

Dude

hey guys,

any rumours of a HW55-replacement?

seems that some stores here in Europe (The Netherlands) are slashing prices.

in one example down to €2440 from €3000......thats a €560 discount.

That price could be due to their "Summerdeals"-special but it seems that the HW55 price is slowly coming down.

any thoughts?

Seems sony will be having a "yoohoo big summer blow out".

JVC has cut their X500 below the current price of a HW55. Sony on their turn dives under that price with a substantial difference.

In euro's

HW55 €3000........summerdeal €2550
X500 €2800

cash discount is a lot more welcome than trying to sell a "free" playstation 4, like Sony's last deal with the HW55.

The PS4 was easy to sell for me.
I bought my HW55 for 2700euro's in november (I received a 10% exhibition discount) and sold the PS4 for 300euro's. After putting it for sale online I had 4 buyers within the hour for that price.

So in the end I only paid 2400euro's for my HW55 and that was more than a half year ago

dat is een bekende nickname Broodroostert ;-)

i am aware of your example, but in my case i couldn't do this with your 10% discount-price because that price is no longer available.

it's also the case that it is my personal preference to have a cash discount than to recieve extra's.

Indeed ^^
I know, I'd also prefer a cash discount, but since I already received one for the exhibition, I couldn't get more. Well, maybe a 100euro's, but the PS4 is worth a lot more, but you have to spend some time selling it. Fortunately, mine was gone very quickly.
