I seriously doubt prices will fall too much. Dell probably sold 300-500 projectors (lucky if they actually sent out more than 30 so far), probably about 20% of them will be resold. I doubt if 100 projectors is gonna flood the market and lower prices. The LT150 is still worth $2500+. You'd be foolish to set the reserve lower than $2200. Just have to be a little patient.

Actually, ebay sales may actually INCREASE once there is more of a presence and the unit is marketed more effectively as an HT unit. Once a few sales are made, more people start bidding. None of the LT150's I've seen have been effectively marketed. If I obtain extra units and sell them on Ebay, I hope to do considerably more with my ad. The LT150 is competitive with the 10HT which is selling for $4,250 on ebay, and people should know that.
Time will tell, of course, but I think it may be a bit of a stretch to think that most of the HT projector buyers on ebay also read this forum. Especially given the business presentation purposes of this projector, I'd think there'd be a lot of interest in the 150, and for well-above $1,700. The cheapest I've seen it (except for the Dell blowout which is no longer available) is $2500, and most retailers are still at or above $3,000. If I'd missed out on the Dell deal, I'd still be willing to pay $2,400 for a NIB, factory sealed 150 (and I'd think it was a bargain at that).
