I'm interested in any views/advice on the following :

I have used the Runco vx 4000d in the UK for about 4 years - (it was already
installed in the house we moved to). Its been pretty good except for increasingly short lamp duration and replacement lamps in UK are at least $1600.

Also Runco don't have any centres in the UK and it would have to be sent to Germay for repair or service.

What replacement projector from a less expensive brand would be easy to fit to provide similar performance.

Thanks very much for help on this.

Hi Surepay,

Have a look at the Digital Projection Cine 230 which would be a more modern equivalent of your Runco.

The DP factory is in Middleton, Manchester so no need to send out for spares or repairs!!!

You can contact me if you are interested in more info or a demo.
