I just want to give you guys a heads-up if anyone was interested in some Barco 1208's. Iowa State University Surplus (where I bought my 1271) has 3 of them. I have no idea if they're a good deal at all - they're listed for $3300/each.


He didn't list hours or condition, but when I bought my 1271, he was very good about letting me fire it up, check tubes, hours, etc. Since the university has removed almost all the CRT's from lecture halls/rooms, there are three of these all at once, and since I don't remember any Barcos in lecture halls anyway, I suspect these may have come out of a real-time VR setup. If so, they were probably driven pretty hard (bright, high-res, high refresh), although they may have relatively few hours on them.


They've been there for a month or so, so they're probably not going anywhere too soon. It's about a half-hour away, but I could certainly check them out if anybody were interested.
