I couldn't think of a better place to turn to see if someone could identify this projector. I would love to buy my friend a good used projector on my paltry budget and I can get my hands on this one for $100.00. Problem is, with out going to look at it, I can't find out what model it is from the picture so I can't find out what the spec's are of this cheap PJ. It is from a university and as you can see it's a Sharp... high resolution.

Any help on identifying this PJ and giving me some advise on the quality of it would be appreciated. I am guessing it's worth at least a $100.00 but I don't want to give my friend a really poor quality gift either so hopefully yall have fun taking a look at it and testing your knowlege of used projectors.

Thanks in advance,

BellaLush

Can't you just ask them?

It looks similar to my ancient Sharp but I can't tell if it's exactly the same...  Mine is linked in my signature post somewhere...

Hi BellaLush,

Pretty sure on Sharp XG-E series.  1200U, maybe.  LCD

Will look a little more tonight.

Thanks for tip, rfisk.

I look up those Sharps and  it does look like one of that series, especially since a couple of site I looked at mentioned thet they were used in educational settings. I can't get any more info on it until tomorrow when I can go look at it, all they will tell me on the phone is what you see in the picture, so I'll check it out more then.

Thanks for your help.

I beleive they are industial models. Used in auditoriums and large halls.  Very expensive units. The lamps are NOT cheap. You better check the hours on the units. You could spend a 100.00 but if it dies it may not be worth fixing.   rg

That's the model I have.  THe lens housing doesn't stick out as far as it does on the model pictured though unless it's zoomed all the way in or something.  But other than that it looks very similar.

Thanks movieman,kelemvor and rfisk. I decided not to buy that projector because of the price of the new bulbs. Given, I am giving it to a freind, I'll keep my eye open for another cheap one that might come to our surplus store that use a less expensive lamp.

Thanks again for you help though Smiley Always appreciated!

Good luck finding a projector that uses cheap bulbs...  Only one I know of is the Lumenlabs one which isn't out yet.  heh.

If it is this model, these are the specs I found.

Brightness: 600 Lumens
Size (inches) (HxWxD) : 7.7 x 14.0 x 20.7
Throw Dist (feet) : 4.6 - 37.9
Image Size (inches) : 40.0 - 500.0
Lamp: 375W Metal Halide
Life: 2000 hours (can not tell what the time on this bulb is)
Native resolution: 832x624 Pixels

New bulbs $325.00-$400.00

Overall, not a bad buy if there is some life left on the bulb.
