If the setup runs close to $5,000, then why sell it for $400? This just doesn't happen with new or nearly new A/V gear of quality. I swear, this scam would actually run better if the MSRP wasn't so stupidly high!
At $400 selling price, they are making a PROFIT. Now, entry level home theater projectors start at about $500 for the cheap models, and a decent 1080p projector with proper 3D (no glasses) runs around $700-$800 on the entry level side.
No screen, no active 3D glasses, but these are real projectors which will produce a solid image for years to come.
On the plus side, you should always ask, and it's great that you did instead of getting suckered in by these guys. Also read the other thread as it has pointers to help identify 'scam' companies like this. Worth saying that this extends to all A/V products out there and other products as well. But speakers, surround systems, etc. all are out there which try to rip you off.
