Free Zenith CRT projectors

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is allowed but if not I am sure a moderator will delete this post! I have 5 Zenith CRT projectors that I want to GIVE away to a good home, I want nothing in return only to see them used - and get them out of my Chicago northwest suburb basement. I work for Zenith and purchased the units several years ago and did nothing with them.

I have 2 Pro2000 units that were tradeshow samples and are in large wheeled shipping crates

I have 3 Pro1200 units that were "B" stock inventory when I bought them and are in the original carboard shipping boxes.

The Pro1200 units are the better units - you can check the spec on both types here: http://www.curtpalme.com/PJSpecs_Zenith.shtm

I have remotes and manuals for all units. they have very low hours on them and the last time I fired the units up they worked fine. - no I will not ship them - you would need to pick them up and preference will be given to someone who is willing to take them all. Yes you can take them and part them out, resell them, or make a 5 CRT stack - I just don't want to throw them in the trash!

I can post pictures if needed but as they are free I would like to minimize the work needed to get rid of them.

Drop me a private message if you are intrerested and willing to come and get them.

wow those are re-badged Barco Cine-8's with LIquid coupled Optics. What if I had my freight company swing by and pick one up with a lift gate?
There's going to be a huge demand and I know it's more hassle but one person shouldn't be able to horde them all . It's like in that TV show, Hoarding is BAD

I am very curious to see these projectors. I ask the future owner to do a lot of pictures.

I keep thinking about what it would be like to do a blend with two projectors and how awesome it could be in theory. Since these are only 120MHz, they cannot fully resolve 1080p so overlay seems less effective. But once I think of the cost of having two Lumagens to match the color and do the 960x1080 x 2 blend, plus all the effort to make it work I start reconsidering.

Please consider giving your projectors away to people who will actually USE them, instead of to the people who ONLY see this as a way to profit from your generosity.
