I had many CRT based projectors over the years before going to digital. The last one was a G70 which to this day I miss.... the picture quality, but not the constant tochup of adjustments to maintain the picture quality.
I went through 4 digital projectors before landing on my VW1000, now 1100. I started with the Sony HS10 then the 20. Then the VW100 came out, I thought that this is it with it's xenon lamp, wow the color was spot on then the vW200 came out, so had to have it... big improvement over the 100 and ran it for several years. When Sony came out with the VW1000, made the jump and I am very happy with it, but I miss the color rendition of the xenon lamp.
But, I still miss the G70 picture quality of analog video. I had 6000hrs on the G70 tubes when I retired it, and I still have it in storage as I thought that I would retube it, but Guess I will just send it off to the recycle center as at this point, I don't plan on putting it back in service.
I don't know how popular the G70's are now, but perhaps I should put the boards and remote on ebay as I am sure if there are people out there still using G70's, they might want spares.
My advice to you is if you are an avid videophile go with digital, buy the best as you will not be happy with anything less.
The G90 was the best tube projector, hands down. I have seen stacked G90's with a picture that would knock your socks off, but they are dated now and at the rate that digital quality is improving, with the price is coming down, it is the only way to go.
Good luck with your choice!
