You could be right. I actually inspected that exact projector (took a note of the serial number) when it was up at Ft. Meade, MD a month or two back. Government surplus obviously. There were two up and the other was an 1999 one which was purchased by a friend of mine ('99 Marquees do not have the voltage problem obviously). That one had about 3000 hours on it but otherwise was mint. His opening bid is just under what he paid for it. I believe it closed for about 3200 + 10% buyer premium. Though it wasn't that busted up (case) when I saw it.
