Question Is the Vidikron Vision Model 30 still worth buying?

I'm not really what one might call an enthusiast, but do keep an eye on Craiglist for interesting stuff and good deals. This week, I spotted what looks like a Vidikron Vision Model 30 projector (circa mid-2000s 720p single-chip DLP,; 1100 lumens) and was kind of curious as to whether or not these sets are still worth anything. I'd consider buying it to experiment with, but would like to know that I could sell it to somebody else on eBay when I'm done without having to practically give it away.

Are these worth buying at any price these days?

A new bulb for that projector will cost you more than the projector itself is worth, so the answer to your question would boil down to how much you are paying for it and how many hours are left on the bulb. The most likely answer to your question though is NO.

$10 payment seems about right for hauling it off.
