BenQ HT3550 (Refurb) - $872.90!!

Insane price for one of the newest releases from BenQ. Makes me have slight buyer's remorse at the full MSRP. Won't last long... Use code SUMMERSALE

https://www.benqdirect.com/ht3550-refurb.html

Roughly 30 units available at time of posting.

Wow! If only that code worked for the TK800M! I need a bright room projector so the 3550 won’t work for me.

Maybe keep an eye on the TK800 refurbs if they come back in stock. The code will most likely work for them. I don't see any refurb TK800Ms listed on their site.

Honestly I am tempted to get the 3550 just to see if it works for my lighting and sell it on eBay if it doesn’t.

I snoozed, but I didn’t loose. I really need the TK800M since its for the living room and I can’t have a a completely dark room with dark walls and whatnot. Not a big deal. I did miss out on a TK800M Open Box on eBay last night by $50 in the last 20 seconds that was annoying, but another one will come up.

That's the good thing about most deals. There's usually another one coming.

Dang, a few days late! Dont see any more available. Ive been wanting this PJ so badly but couldnt justify the 4k price difference compared to HT2050a so I ended up getting that one instead. Would have hopped on this for sure if I had seen it

Be aware that some refurbished 3550's have been reported to have aspects that are different from what they should be (not in line with 3550 specifications).

- throw / offset / lens shift

I don't think so. I called them a few weeks ago because I missed the refurb deal and asked if they would be having another soon. They said absolutely, there would be a big push in November.

the code benq30 was more recent i might call and ask for that one. support guy said they usually honor old codes for a week or so.

Hmm. I've been watching pretty closely for any codes or sales that pertain to one of the projectors I'd be interested in and haven't seen any since...

Quality control issues/defective units? Wondering what the explanation is for these cases.
