Hey all,
I'm hoping to find a second hand 1080P projector with hdmi input. Budget around $400-$700

 

Hoping for a low bulb life and a decent contrast ratio

 

If you have one for sale please let me know

 

I'm also on the hunt for a 100+ inch fixed 16:9 projection screen if you have one available. After a cheaper one, not too fussed with brand and quality

Damn, I just sold my Benq yesterday, $300 with less than 150hrs on it. My daughter was on FB and said someone wanted a projector so I sold it. What's the odds I could have sold it twice in less than 12hrs lol? Tried here a while back and no one wanted it.

aad_ht i would not get anything else but the w1070, recieved mine day ago now, splashed into onto a pinky coloured cupboard wall, with a sub par ripped video input and man was it awesome just like that, i checked out what harvey norman was offering in there ht room, to me the benq was upto scratch with the $3500 projector they had going and was better then the other lower priced ones they had. Count your pennies, save the change and grab a benq w1070, 

 

office works will beat any price by 5%, so find the cheapest benq w1070 for sale right now in australia, show it to them and they will beat that price by a further 5%, can easily get the thing for $800-$900 or grab a referbed one which is right on par with your max price of budget. 

 

Or put a wanted up on here but the w1070 is the way to go. I nearly cried the first time i turned mine on.  :thumbsup:

You may get discount if you tell them you are from DTV forum.

Definitely check with TCC. I purchased one of their 110" screens in June and it is fantastic. Definite value for money there. Easy to assemble and quick delivery if u need that also. As jamo said, mention dtv and there may still be a discount.

I have a Mitsubishi HC3800 which I'm not really using, low hours 400 or so. Still in 2 minds what to do with it but would probably sell at the top end of your budget. I realise the 1070 as mentioned is up there and would contain warranty etc, but thought I would mention mine anyway.
