    If that's an Infocus Screenplay 4805, then you need to be aware of the fact that you can order that pj from many reputable online retailers at close to that same price.

    If it's an Infocus Screenplay 7000 series pj then it could be a good deal.

    If its not a "Screenplay" pj then its probably optimized for presentation work and I wouldn't touch it.

    (You also need to be aware of the fact that Infocus has just announced the X3 which is an XGA presentation pj with some home theater attributes. It'll cost around $1100, but could be a better deal as a starter pj than the one you're eying on ebay.)

    Gary, I would not buy anything from Ebay. I've read too many posts on different forums about guys getting ripped off
    buying a projector.

    Gary, Infocus also announced awhile ago that one of their warehouses had been broken into and several projectors were stolen. With that in mind they cautioned people about buying any of their product on e-bay since they said they knew the serial numbers for that product, so just be careful.
