Hello all
I would like your help. A person at work wants to sell his PJ and screen for $700. The PJ is a sharp XG-H44OU with a manufacture date of Jan 1995 (15 years old) he has given it to me to check out. I found one on e-bay for $150 had a lot of time to bid thou. No manual but he said that he had it. Do I want to go further on this? I don't have any info on screen. Please any advice would be great.
Thanks Rich

Go to projectorcentral.com for the specs on this unit to see if it will do the job and fill the screen. How many hours on the lamp? Look for brightness, contrast etc.  I suspect due to the age its 4:3. The price may be good, but if you have to replace the bulb the cost could kill you. It maybe better to look again.  Do your home work!  rg

Unless it is a motorized sceen I would walk away. 15 year old technology isn't bad, but 700.00 is Shocked

yeah I'd stay away from a $700, 15 year old projector, lol!   Unless it's a $650 screen Wink

*edit* oh holy crap I just googled it and that's the first projector I ever owned!   Back in 2002, when I was working in the A/V Department at my old college, my boss sold me one for $50 that came out of a classroom they were rennovating.   It had been installed in like 1995 or so.

It was 640x480, and believe it or not, only around 70 lumens if I recall.  Less than 100.  You had to have the room completely blacked out, but then the image looked halfway decent.    It was a monster though, weighed like 50 pounds.   Had motorized zoom and focux, lots of high end features. 

Would definitely be a very bad choice for outdoor theater, though.  Look for an infocus X1 if you want something used and kinda ghetto-cheap, theyr'e still a decent projector for the money.

No $700 not $70 He clams low use hours spent more time in closet. I donít know if this is true or not donít think he would lie to me but memoryís do. I donít know if this PJ has an hour meter or not.

I'd walk away, honesly, if you have $700 to spend, you can get a really nice projector that's practically new.  or if you have to split the $700 amongst projector, screen and sound, you can still get a really decent projector on eBay for $350 or so, and use all the rest to flesh out the rest of your theater.
