Sweet, I ordered one. If anyone is in Texas just read the bottom of the order form...you can enter coupon code TAXSUCKS and get $5 off your tax. Can't wait to hook this thing up, and as I said to someone on IRC, I can't wait until the day it somehow screws up and drains my car battery while I sleep. Posted Image

Woot is currently in the midst of a "woot-off" -- basically, a "purple light special", in which items come and go fairly quickly -- as fast as one sells out, it's replaced with something else (not the usual "new item at mignight -- stays all day" routine).

Here's a list of the items which have already come and gone today:

http://forum.woot.co...ewforum.php?f=2

At the moment, it looks like the coffee maker which is up now is close to selling out (progress/inventory bar down to about 1/4), so no telling what might be up next... Keep checking back, and you might run up on some quick bargains!

These events may last for 2 or 3 days, with new items coming and going as fast as folks snap 'em up. (There's a 12-hour max on anything that DOESN'T sell out.) Posted Image

I've been following the 'woot-off' since midnight and these things have been selling out in under 10 minutes. Some even less. There was only that stupid RC car that stood around for an hour.

Too bad their servers keep going down, they must be getting hammered!

The "woot-off" was a bit of fast and furious fun...getting in was sorta like trying to be the "x-th" caller in a radio station contest... Some items came and went before you could even read the item description! And the "Community" section was totally blown out for most of the event.

But, looks like it's over now, so back to business as usual.

Up now:

Rockford Fosgate WiFi Car/Home Audio Bundle - $199.99 + $5 S&H

???

Before anyone jumps at this, you may want to consider a few things.

This projector came out in 2002 featuring the then new HD chip from TI. InFocus stopped manufacturing 7200 shortly after CES.

There are still plenty of new models available, but $4,700+ is most certainly not the usual price!

Considering you can buy newer LCD and DLP HD projectors that significantly outperform the 7200 in almost every way (contrast, color accuracy, color wheel, lens shift, fan noise, inputs, etc) for under $3,500 and in some cases for as little as $2,000 anyone trying to sell a 7200 for over $3,000, let alone $4,700 is going to have a hard sell to anyone other than an uninformed consumer.

A quick search on eBay shows new sealed 7200 models with "buy it" now prices below $2,900. Looking at what has been sold, the average price of a new and sealed 7200 was about $2,500. I've seen used 7200 on eBay and on Videogon selling for as little as $1,500.

So while $2,200 might at first look good, it is important to realize this is relatively old technology, and for a refurb unit the price is not that good compared to what new and used 7200 units are selling for.

In addition, current DLP and even LCD projectors significantly outdate this projector. TI has made several modifications and enhancements to their newer DLP chips since they developed the HD2 chip that is used in the 7200.

There are several other models in that price range that would be worth looking into. One than immediately comes to mind is Toshiba's MT700. (here are some of the key features and comparisons to the 7200)
  • The latest HD2+ chip from TI
  • The latest video processor from Faroudja
  • Contrast levels about twice that of the 7200
  • HDMI input
  • Fan noise is several dB levels lower than the 7200
All that and it sells new for about $2,500.

If you are on a tighter budget, or are not a fan of DLP technology, then $2,000 will get you a brand new Panasonic AE700 which not only has specs quite similar to the MT700, but its "screendoor effect" or pixel gap is significantly less do to Panasonic's exclusive "smooth screen" technology.

Personally, I would not buy a 7200 unless it was significantly cheaper than these projectors, as its performance capabilities are noticeably inferior.

I do not mean to rain on anyone's parade, just want to share what I know with fellow HTFers so they wont make uninformed decisions.

I'll agree with this. You'd be better off with a Toshiba, Benq or the Panny.

What exactly does recertified mean? This seems like a good deal. Do you think the $100 rebate would apply on top of this deal?

Refurbished. I don't think the $100 applies, Woot would have mentioned about it. I'm on the fence about this, it's a good price but I really do want HD projector instead.
