It's a Toshiba TLP X10. It's for sale on the HTF.

Is it ok for a beginner projector for a room without controllable light?

I can't use the AE100 since it's not bright enough, etc, and this seems like a good solution. Here's a link to the sellers page:

Thanks in advance for your input.

Sounds decent but needs to check for (get it in writing in a formal, signed letter preferably notarized) 1) dead pixel, 2) dust on panel, 3) convergence, 3) remaining warranty and if transferable to new owner, 4) 15-D money back warranty, 5) bulb life span (spec and estimated remaining, and location and cost of replacement), 6) noise produced (spec. and estimated), 7) confirmation of spec. listed at PJ central (PDF owner's manual is best), 8) throw in screen, hushbox if avail., cables, shipping, etc, 9) ceiling mounting capability.

I would not pay over $2000 for an used XGA LCD no matter how clean, how bright due to 1) cost of bulb replacement, 2) warranty issue, 3) newer technology avail. now with smaller size and weight. It is worth $2K if it's pristine, lack any dead pixel, dust blobs, within one pixel convergence, and has remaining, transferrable Toshiba warranty.

Good luck.

Yes, they do get smaller.

The Toshiba business projectors (like this) have wonderful colors, but average video processing. Unless you're using an HTPC, progressive scan DVD player, or a separate scaler/deinterlacer, I think the jaggies will get annoying real fast. I'd plan to drop at least $750 or so on a DVDO Pro, unless you're only watching DVD's from an HTPC or p-scan DVD player.
