Late last fall, I picked up a pretty nice 1271 with 2600 hours on it and no obvious burns - for a whopping $700. I've tested it and looks really good, although I'm just starting to build the room that it's going in.


I just found out the same place I bought the 1271 from has a D50Q. They're asking $2450 for it with a Chief motorized mount, but they say, "the red channel isn't functional".


I was thinking of this projector to replace my dad's 12-13 year old Inifinity video-grade projector - or I'd keep it and give hime the 1271 - whichever's best. Any chance this could be inexpensively repaired, and would it be a good HT projector - probably just using an iScan or something.


The D50 wouldn't be as good for using with a HTPC and playing around with 720P or even 1080i as the 1271, would it? I was thinking of waiting for it to sit around awhile to see if they cut the price. Any thoughts on price? Repairability?


Thanks, guys!
