Can anyone tell me anything good/bad about Zenith 900X CRT projector. I'm being offered one for $6,000.

Can I get something better for this price? Or will I be getting a good deal?

Barco 808 series.

NEC XG series.

Electrohome 8500 series.


Just to start the list. Most would run you around $4k with good quality tubes I believe. Get on Tim, Terry and Curt's mailing lists. All 3 resell good condition used 8" CRT units which will save you a bundle over that 7" you are being offered. Take the savings and put it into a good processor, screen, room treatments, etc.


I just noticed Curt has some 8500s coming in, and some XGs coming in soon. These would be where you are looking price wise, but much better quality image and machine.

Private message them, or search for a post by them, often they keep their email in their signatures.


Curt = Curt Palme

Terry = Chuchuf (Terry F.)

Tim = tim


All 3 are great resources on the forum, for both equipment and information. :)


I'm sure I'm forgetting one or two of the other big(ger) sellers...
