For some reason that I cannot completely fathom, my wife is very averse to the idea of having 2 projectors in the house. very strange no? but there it is..

On sale here is the infocus X1. not the X1a, which is the stripped down version, but the X1.

some of you who are on team-bhp as well may have seen the ad that I was "made" to put up there, last year, when I got my full HD projector..

Team-BHP Classifieds - Price corrected: Infocus X1/ Screenplay 4800 DLP projector - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds

subsequently, when my wife saw my original discouraging post and the asking price (INR25k) i was made to change that!

well the deal is like this..

it's not been used since that time.. i'd though I'd use it with my son to play computer games, or watch movies when we go out of town, but it's really never happened. And now, I myself am beginning to feel.. what a waste.. the projector is a great thing, but it is meant to be used. and this is growing old without some one using it.

So I'm offering it for sale (without reluctance, this time)

Infocus x1 DLP projector with faroudja dcdi video processing.
(identical to the celebrated screenplay 4800 except for the firmware and remote, and you can flash the screenplay firmware if you want those kind of gamma curves)

with the proj you get the following

power cable, remote, s-video cable, vga - d-sub cable, 480i component adapter, (a separate accessory), 480p component adapter (a separate accessory). I can throw in a component cable and another d-sub cable (longer) FOC. no screen, i've already given that to Hemant Waghe.

the proj is really good with movies. it's not as bright as the current crop of new projectors, (1100 lumens), but it works fine in the daytime in a room with curtains drawn and lights off.

works extremely well with sd content.. i remember how good dish tv looked on this.. unless you have a really really high end dvd player, feed it an interlaced signal and let it do the deinterlacing.

the lamp should go on for another 3000hrs. rated life of 4k hours(That's a lot more than you think).. we have done some 800hrs in 5 years and even with our HD projector, when we watch about 2-3 movies a week, it's about 300hrs in a year)

of course, YMMV, and some people have got upto 7100hrs from the lamp. but a life of less than 3k hours is rare

remember, that it's a dlp, so it's not likely to get screen fades the way older lcds used to.

Price - Rs 12,000.
(I would like to give 10% of sale proceeds to HFV for keeping doing the indian AV enthusiasts community such a great service)

Shipping costs if any to be borne by the buyer

I used have the same model and this was ahead of it times when launched.
There are much better options now, but this is good for a startup HT at this price.
