This is not an advertisement, yet... I have listed this projector at my local craigslist. I am posting here to ask you guys what I think I should get for it. Here's the scoop:
It's an Optoma HD70, about 4 years old. Worked great up till about a year ago, then I started getting colorwheel issues (at about 2600 hours in--I was on the first bulb). In a misguided attempt to correct the issue, I bought a new bulb, which of course did nothing. Later, I ordered a new colorwheel on eBay and installed it. PROBLEM SOLVED!! Well... for about 6 months anyway. Just a few weeks ago, the problems came back. Here is a video of my projector colorwheel problem:http://youtu.be/h8zPL8RmuFo
So, needless to say, I am sick of diagnosing and fixing this thing, so I am putting it to pasture. I bought an Epson 8350 and installed it today. I am very happy with it so far, though I have ~2hrs on it. I bought it for its reviews and the fact that it has no colorwheel, so NO COLORWHEEL PROBLEMS!!!
So, what should I charge for my HD70? It has 2 working bulbs included, one with about 2600hrs, and another with about 200 hours. I assume I would be selling it to someone with the technical knowledge to fix it and most likely flip it for a little profit. I am OK with that--just want it out of my home!!
So, what do you guys think?? What's it worth?
