Local sale in Boston preferred, but I will ship anywhere in the lower 48 states via UPS FREE If you're looking at this post, you already know all about this little PJ. It's native 16:9 and is truly wonderful on DVDs and HDTV. I forgot to check the hours on the lamp, but they are very low as I haven't used it very much. I've never had a problem with it at all and it's been 100% reliable. No color banding problems that I've ever seen either. The one issue is that there is a stuck blue pixel in the upper right corner--it's been there from Day 1 and did not suddenly appear. This is easily remedied with a little piece of yellow tape (I use a tiny bit of yellow-colored price sticker) and I've been very happy with this solution in the time that I've owned it. However, depending on your sensitivity to such issues, I'd prefer a local sale--you can come by my apartment and check it out for yourself and decide if it will be an issue for you. Why am I selling? Well, I'm moving into a projector-unfriendly space, so I'm sadly leaving the world of truly big-screen HT. It comes with the original box, packaging, carrying case and remote, plus a copy of the English manual. I will also throw in the 30ft. long Canare component video cables that I had custom made for my set-up. My asking price is $1000 but I will be open to any reasonable offers.
