Not mine, but I might consider parting with my DVP-S7000 that is still in perfect "like New condition" also.

Hopefully there are some guys here who paid $30K for Sony's 720p projector when that one first came out, who can tell you how they enjoyed being early adopters... ;)

Good question, especially as I'm one to not mess with updates unless something doesn't work. And since I was in the middle of the movie it was easiest to just put the disc in another player--and not...

I have not used my BH200 in several years now, not since I tried to watch '300' HD-DVD on it and it hung-up part way into it. I switched to my XA-2 and that disc played perfect so that's the player...

That is a great price! Just have them cut 10" off'n it to 50" tall (x 120") and you're good to go.
