    Nathan,
    While I don't claim to be the "best of the best" or the "elite", I will give you my thoughts. [​IMG]
    If you find something this cheap it will most definitely (well, 99.999%) be an old(er) CRT. I doubt you could find an LCD projector that could not be described as destroyed in that price range. Furthermore since CRT projectors are large and weigh a TON, shipping itself might come close to your budget.
    So, what I would do is look in the phone book for any local A/V production houses and see if they have some older CRT projectors in inventory that they are looking to unload to make room for new gear. I really think that will be your best bet. But as I said, I'm not the best or an elite. Perhaps someone else may have some good news. Best of luck to you.
