I bought this from an authorized dealer. This is a refurbished unit with an extended warranty. The warranty is from Mack Camera (bought through a power buy AVS Forum). The unit has appox. 1,200 hours on it. The current lamp in the unit has appox. 485 hours on it and I have a second lamp that I will include that has appox. 690 hours on it.

The Mack 4 year projector warranty is transferable for a $20 fee. There is also a 3 year lamp service contract, which would entitle the owner to another lamp during the contract period. The warranties started with the purchase of the projector on 5/07.

Here's the review from projector central:

I am buying a BenQ W5000 1080P projector. I will be gaining some brightness (but same DC3 and contrast) and resolution. Let me know if you have any questions? I have all original packing materials. I'll ship to the lower 48 states + insured for a delivered price of $985.00

Thanks for looking

For those interested in buying and would like pics, please email me at [email protected]. Also, the question on how long the warranty lasts:

The Projector warranty starts from the expiration of the BenQ warranty. So the projector warranty is through April of 2012.

The Lamp warranty starts from the date of purchase. So the lamp is through April of 2010. Remember you get a free lamp through the warranty period. That's $350 value for FREE.
