Barco F82 with less than 3000 total hours of use.
This is an amazing projector that I was hoping to use in my home theatre for a 150" to 180" screen, but unfortunately my wife did not agree with my plans. So it now has to go.
This projector features (3) .95 DLP chips and dual lamps which can be precisely controlled at the power level to extend the bulb life and to run cooler, should you need to do so. Has amazing color as well as a built in DCI filter that automatically drops into place and the push of a button.
It also features a mechanical iris control, which helps balance your brightness and increase your contrast.
This projector can go very bright for HDR type material while also being able to handle darker science fiction material with aplomb.
Very a satisfying, calm, deep image with very good contrast and it's built like a tank.
It's perfect for enthusiasts who wish to run 24hz mastered films without any pulldown artifacts.
As pure and stable of an image as projected 35mm film.

I bought this projector off Ebay a few months ago for a similar price b/c it has one minor issue; when you turn it off, the cooling fans kick in as they're supposed to, but they don't turn off.
Not a big deal, all you do is manually unplug the unit after fifteen minutes or so.
If I was keeping the unit I would probably just buy a ten dollar outlet switch so I could remotely turn it off.
There also may be a simple setting within the projector menus to address this, not sure.
Without this issue this projector would be selling in the $2500 range.
I've priced it at $1000 to cover my costs and Ebay fees.
Hoping this goes to a nice home w/ someone who can use and appreciate its amazing imaging and brightness potential.
This projector is a good fit for anyone looking for a 100" to 180" bright image with 3 chip DLP image punch.
With a bit of gain on the screen you choose, you potentially could go even bigger.
