I have a BenQ 7800 PE Projector and a brand new lamp unit that I am going to want to get rid of, however I do not know what a fair price / value is for sale or trade

It is on the original lamp unit in the projector but it has over 3k hours on it so it needs to be replaced which is why i purchased the new lamp unit, then when I moved I never set it up again and it has been sitting collecting dust

Now I have moved again and have found the lamp and projector, so it is time to unload it as I cannot see using it again anytime soon

I think it went for around 3-4k when i bought it but the tech has come such a long way since then...what kind of value does it have now?

I have only found one listed as new for $1260

Would asking $1k-$1100 be fair ? Is it worth that much being as old as it is, even with a new lamp?

Sorry man, like a computer from 2004 it is probably worth more to you as you paid for it originally than anyone else.
It is Not HD 1024x576, it has a Contrast ratio of 2000:1, light output of 800 Lumens and makes as much noise as a 747 at 32 db. Don't think I would pay more than $50 for it. However the uneducated consumer may pay more. In any used market, fair price is as much as you can get in your area... Some kid would be thrilled to use this if he were playing non HD video games.. start out high $300 and come down.
