Here is another
list of used projectors for sale. As always, al prices are in US dollars. If you
want off this list, please shoot me back a quick email and I'll take you off
I’ve spent part of the last week upgrading my ancient trusty computer to a
new one, and have changed from Outlook Espress to Outlook. Transferring 10,000
emails and 5500 addresses takes quite some time as I found out. So while I’m
still getting used to the new Outlook, the addresses in my address book
hopefully got transferred without duplicates. If you’ve received this email
twice, or if you didn’t get it, please shoot me back a quick email (there’s a
joke in there somewhere, please re-read carefully..
Onto the list!
1- GE Imager/Panasonic PT-101Y projector. This is a good entry level
projector that will take a video or S-signal. 600 lumens from 7” tubes, this is
a low hour set. Analog convergence, small and quiet, with only one fan in it.
I’ve sold of these, this is the last unit that I have. Simple to set up,
reliable, a good unit for the kids to play video games on. On eBay here:
1- Sony 1030. One left! A great little starter projector that will scan to 32
Khz, good for line doublers and HDTV. Also accepts a video input. Analog
convergence. Small size, good condition tubes Great as a starter projector or
for the kids video games so that Dad's main projector isn't used. The tubes are
in great shape, you’ll get 8000 + hours out of the tubes.
On ebay here:
2- Ampro 2000's.I’ve got two more of these here, these ones have low hours on
them. The unit is only 10" tall, great for those low ceilings. 600 or 750 lumens
depending on which tubes are installed (SD-187 tubes on the older units, 07MS
tubes on the newer ones), 80 Khz scan rate allow the projector to accept up to
line quadruplers or 1280 X 1024 (but these 7" tubes run best with line triplers
or 1024 X 768). Quiet operation, modular construction. Video, S-video and RGB
inputs. Digital convergence, full manual included. Intuitive set up and a well
written manual make these great as a first projector. Both have the later model
07MS tubes in them, the one here on eBay has only 480 hours on it.
The second unit is in the same shape, with under 500 hours on it.
Lots more Ampro projectors to come shortly, including more 2000’s and some 8”
EM focus sets, the 3400’s.
1- Barco Data 800. I’ve got more of these coming in shortly, but this one is
in good shape. 58 Khz makes this set good for past 720p or line tripling. 825
lumens out of 8” Sony tubes, you’ll get over 8000 hours out of these tubes.
Video, S-video and RGB inputs. Digital convergence, very easy to set up, I’ve
sold 100’s of these over the years with very few issues. On ebay here:
10 more of these are on their way shortly.
Barco 701/701s projectors. If you’re looking for a bright (1000 lumen) small
and quiet projector that is easy to set up, this is it. These are very small
units (approx 28” X 24” X 13”), and are currently also being made for Runco
under the DTV 947 and similar models. Currently also under the Barco line as the
Cine 7 model. These sets started with the Barco 701 projector that used 650
lumen Sony tubes. They then came out with the 701s that bumped the brightness up
to 1000 lumens and used Toshiba tubes. Two models of each were released, the
Vision that scanned to 36 Khz (good for line doubling and HDTV), and the Data
model that scanned to 50Khz (good for up to line tripling). All models have
video. S-video, RGB and COMPONENT inputs, digital convergence, on screen menus
and are very easy to set up. I’ve got 4 units in stock right now.
1- Barco Data 701- tubes in good shape for about 8000 hours. On eBay here:
2- Barco Vision 701s. higher lumens, tubes in good shape. Slight 16:9 wear
pattern but very light, you won’t see if if you’re using a 16:9 aspect ratio. On
1- BArco Data 701s. Zero wear on these tubes, you’ll get 9000 hours + out of
these tubes. On eBay here:
1 NEC 9 PG projectors. A step up from these focusing sets listed above, these
are EM focus sets that scan to 94 Khz. 800 lumens from 7 1/2" tubes, these sets
are equipped with the optional Video/S-video input card as well as the $1200.00
(new) point convergence card that allows extreme fine tuning of each CRT. NO
wear on these tubes, you’ll get 9500 hours + out of these tubes. . Many of you
know that NEC's are my personal favourite projector for fleshtones. c/w wireless
remote. ON eBay here:
1 Barco G 808. This is a high end 8" EM focus set with 1200 lumens and 110
Khz scan rate. Video, S-video and RGB inputs, digital convergence and on screen
menus make this a very easy set to set up. 100% modular construction make
servicing a snap. I sell lots of BArco 808's a year. This one has very minor 4:3
wear on the G and B tubes, consistent with about 3000 hours of use. The red has
no wear. Very simple to set up the image within the wear area. Chances are
you'll never need to retube this set. c/w wireless remote.
I’ve got a bunch more Barco 808 sets in stock that I need to go through. Some
use the Sony tubes, some use the MEC tubes. More details on the next list.
2- Barco 1208/2. These sets are a step up from the 808 spec-wise, but I’ve
never seen a big difference between the two. You’ll get 7000 hours + out of
these sets. The 1208 scans to 135 Khz, and has a similar set up structure to the
808 with additional astigmatism controls in the set up menu. Same basic other
specs as the 808. I’ve got two of these in stock with original low hour tubes.
One is on ebay here:
1- Marquee 8110. This set is similar to the Barco 808 above. 110 Khz scan
rate, This set has low hour original tubes, and has video, S-video and RGB
inputs. 1200 lumens from 8” MEC tubes, you’ll get 8000 hours + out of them. Very
easy set up, similar to the Barco. A little taller but less long than the Barco,
the performance is the same. I’ve got lots more Marquees in stock, I’ve ordered
tubes for the rest. The anamorphic squeeze mod and the power supply mods are
done, as they are to all of the Marquees that I sell. ON eBay here:
1 NEC XG 110 projector. The NEC XG is what I use in my own theater. I’ve put
a new green tube into this set, the R and B are original with no wear. 1200
lumens from 8" EM focus tubes. Absolutely stunning performance out of these
units. The XG series are also a fairly small projector compared to the others.
Digital convergence, 100 point convergence per color. a small projector
considering they have 8" tubes. Video, S-video and RGB inputs. A superb picture
out of these sets. Wireless original remote included. On eBay here:
Note that the eBay ad reads wrong, you’ll get the full 10,000 hours out of
1- Ampro 4300. This is a 9” projector with liquid coupled tubes. 1200 lumens,
110 Khz scan rate, digital convergence, a gorgeous picture. I’ve currently got
this unit installed in my own home theater, and the sharpness and resolution is
a significant step up from the 6 PG Xtra that I was running previously (but not
as nice as the 9500LC that I did an A/B demo with a week ago). A wired remote is
included, and the tubes are in good shape I’ve run this set for 100 hours, and
it’s solid. I’m selling it at a low price due to the fact that AmPRo is now out
of business, but I’ve got a good stock of parts to maintain the Ampros that I
sell. On eBay here:
Note that I will have one mint condition Ampro 4600 coming up soon with zero
wear on the tubes. The set would have been ready now, had the trucking company
not smashed the blue tube in transit.. This set has under 1000 hours of CRT time
1- Electrohome Marquee 9000LC. I have one more of these sets in from the same
place that I got the previous ones from. 1200 lumens from 9" EM focus tubes, 110
Khz scan rate, video. S-video and RGB inputs. I’ve done the standard mods to the
set, but have also upgraded the video chain to newer revision video input and
output boards, so for all intents and purposes, this set is now a 9500LC.
Excellent resolutions, an easy and comprehensive set up with very intuitive
menus. Very light wear on the green, barely noticeable on the screen, these
tubes will last at least 8000 hours. c/w wireless remote.On eBay here:
1- Sony 1270 switcher with built in line doubler. I’ve got one more of these
combination switchers and line doublers. The doubler section has two video and
S-video inputs, and one component input. It can be used in conjunction with a
Sony 12XX series projector or as a standalone unit with any other projector. One
extra RGB card installed along with the 3 input doubler. On eBay here:
I’ve got an overstock situation of NEC PG Xtras right now, as I’ve been busy
selling and retubing Marquees and Barcos. I’m now going to concentrate on the
NEC PG and XG’s that I’ve got in stock, and am ordering tubes for 5 sets
tomorrow. They will be on upcoming lists. I’ve just bought a slew of Barco 1208
sets. Most likely I will be scrapping a few of them, and I will then have more
Barco HV quadruplers in. I know that some of you are looking for them. Below is
what is coming in.
