    I still havn't bought my infocus 4805 yet... still looking for the best deal. Now I'm seeing some refurbished ones on Ebay for just under a grand with a 100" Elite Manual 16:9 Screen 49" Tall x 87" Wide Matte White 1.0 Gain screen. This is tempting becuase it would eliminate me spending a month figuring out how to make a screen or what to make it out of and all that guess work. Does anyone know anything about this Elite screen though? Is it trash or a decent screen? thanks.

    hi Derek

    I think you are somewhat insane to even consider buying off of ebay (to save $100?). Do a search for dead pixels, exchange policies, and warranty support.

    Best wishes!

    I agree with Gregg. I wouldn't buy a pair of underwear from Ebay, it would probably come skidmarked. Refurbs only have a 90 day warranty also.

    Buy one or make one. If you buy one check out Carada, if you make one check out the DIY board.

    Oh and for the love of HT, PLEASE do not buy your pj off of eBay!!!

    Buy from an authorized dealer, you will sleep better at night.
