Tough call just because I've actually never seen a IN72 in person.
But from the reviews the 7060 outclassed the IN72 and was compared favorably with the 78....so that bodes well for the 7130.
I would think you should easily be able to get $300-$500 for your IN72.
Take a quick look at what they have gone for on ebay, videogon and other sites by googling.
More stress on the connectors? What do you mean?
Thanks for the link.
I guess it's like a torque wrench in theory. The DVI connector on the back of the projector, by adding an adapter you increase the stress put on that port, because it adds another 1" or so in length, before the cable is attached.
I think the stress on the connector is a moot point in a fixed mount installation. No problems for my 4801 M1 - HDMI adapter.
My concern with the adapter is that the rear door might not close on the connectors with the added depth of the adapter. My conduit run to the ceiling will not handle another cable (and I even have a long DVI cable somewhere collecting dust).
Oh, gotch-ya....yeah maybe a full length DVI from monoprice is the ticket.
BUT...any signal loss issues at 40' with DVI? I'm currently using a 40' HDMI with no issues and a 25' DVI with no issues.
I'm not sure about that, my cables are only 35/25 feet, I run a component (Wii) and an HDMI (from audio receiver) and they both seem to work fine. I do notice banding with the 25' component, but I think that's due to the extension connectors I have to use connecting the Wii cable to the longer component cable.
Either what he said or build a moveable screen or buy a motorized one.
My plasma had to come off the wall and onto a stand with wheels so I can cart it out of the way when needed.(extra long HDMI to allow for this)
