I have been searching for an NEC HT1000. After bidding on this item on Ebay (and losing) I have gotten at least 5 spam Emails from Europe offering to sell it to me for up to $2000 less than I can get here. Assuming that these are legit offers, does anyone know if the projectors are sold at a lower wholesale price over the big pond ? PS I won't be buying from overseas in any event-feels a little risky. I'm just curious as one of the emails implied that they can get it for less than US customers. In which case the projector companies are acting alot like the pharmaceutical industry in charging whatever the market might bear.
