NEC 9PG Puls or Electrohome 8501.

363 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Dirk
Hi there;

I'm at another purchase point - Which of these units would you choose (given the choice)

Which one provides the better picture.

The e-home has about 1000 hrs on the CRT's and needs the low voltage Power Supply replaced (found out I can get that done locally for about $300 CND)

The NEC is in great shape but has about 6500 hrs on the Tubes.

Please help by providing some purchasing info.

Thanks a bunch in advance.

I currently have PG9100 and PG9200 and I consider getting E8501 as an upgrade. 8" CRT vs 7"

Hello Shanemac,

perhaps you can help me. I´m searching for an High Voltage Power supply for an 8500 now for over 6 weeks and couldn´t find one. The person/adress you got your LVPS, can you give me his adress or ask him if he can sell me a hvps for my 8500 or anyone other here in the forum.

Thanks in advance,
