I was walking around a Phoenix area store around December 1, and noticed the clearance tag on the shelf for the HD70: $499. Of course, they were out of stock, but when the sales guy checked stock at all the Arizona stores, I noticed that all stores showed the HD70 on clearance, and that most stores were selling it at $499. Some were $599 or $699, but the North Scottsdale store showed $399!
I walked to the kiosk at the store I was in and ordered one for delivery for $499. Next, I drove to the North Scottsdale store where I was able to buy another at the kiosk for $399!
My orders were delayed for nearly four weeks due to backordering, but finally, I received an email saying that they were shipping. I couldn't believe it. $499 is an amazing deal for this projector. $399 is just sick! Not sure if they're still in stock, but it may be worth taking a drive to that store if you're in the area.
Now I have to figure out how to mount it to my existing ceiling mount which has an Infocus IN72. The HD70 requires M3 10mm bolts, and I can't seem to find them anywhere. Any ideas?
