    Up for sale is a virtually new Sharp DT-300 DLP projector. I purchased this a few weeks ago and it only has 12 hours use.

    Why am I selling? I originally purchased this to replace my Epson LCD projector (since I prefer DLP to LCD) but it turns out that the lens throw is too short for my living room (need to place on a ledge behind my couch at the midpoint of my room). This projector definitely has superior picture and performance to my Epson but I just can't live with it on my coffee table with the dog running around. This is a top rated unit featuring the TI Matterhorn chip with a resolution of 1024 x 576 pixels and an impressive contrast ratio of 2000:1. My Epson by comparison only has a contrast ratio of 800:1. It is also rainbow free by utilizing a 6 segment, 5 speed colour wheel - the best in the industry.

    As found on Sharp's website:

    The DT300 is a compact, lightweight 16:9 native widescreen projector that will easily fit on a shelf, cabinet or small side table. Great for watching sports, movies, TV and even playing video games, this projector provides high resolution DLP™ projection anywhere you want it, without taking up a lot of space.

    The DT300 features a short throw lens making it perfect to setup on a coffee table or side table for those of us who do not have a dedicated home theatre. It also features vertical lens shift allowing you to move the projected image up along the wall without having to keep elevating the projector, making setup a snap.

    The DT300 also features numerous setup connections (inputs) which include component video, s-video, DVI-I (HDCP compliant) etc. and has a brightness rating of 700 ANSI, perfect for most rooms even with some ambient light.

    Here are the specs on the projector:

    Here is a projector distance calculator that lets you figure out how large an image you can project from a certain distance:

    This projector currently retails on blowout sale at East Hamilton Radio for $3000 CDN plus taxes. Original retail price for this projector last fall was over $5000 CDN! I am asking $1250 CDN obo since I bought it for a much better deal in the US.

    Thanks.
