    Just about ready to purchase one of these for my recently completed room.
    Can somebody give me some idea of a fair price for one of these machines as i may have the chance of one from work.
    i intend to use a htpc to drive it.
    I believe it has iris 2.

    How can i tell if it will be worth the money ?

    Many Thanks

    Simon

    1208/2 with decent enough tubes is worth 3-4K, 1209 with decent enough tubes starts at about 6k I reckon.

    I run the 1208/2 through an HCPC and the picture easily beats my old TV, I got mine for £1900 but there is wear on the green tube which is only visible on the edges in bright scenes. I reckon I'll hang onto this 1208 and get replacement lamps in the future, very happy with the picture quality.

    P.S - If buying a 1209 you'd better be sure the tubes are ok because if you have to buy them you might have to sell your house :eek: :)

    Hi Simon!

    You are still welcome to come see my room etc.
    I haven't forgot you !
    I've been quite ill since february, but am now on the road to recovery.

    It might give you a little bit of extra knowledge/knowhow in your search for a CRT etc.

    Paul
