    I've got access to some well priced barco 508s .. can someone give me some information on this projector.

    From the search's on here I get the impression its a bit of a budget projector.

    Thanks.

    Think it was basis for Cine6: 7" electrostatic focus PJ. Fanless. Sort of unit that goes in pubs. Sure Roland will come along with full facts. I think it was a commercial failure. Now that OWL no longer sell SIM2 CRT's I believe Barco have done a deal with OWL for distribution of them so expect one in your local pub....soon.

    My advice would be not to touch them 99% will have been sold to pups. the early 508 projectors were very unreliable mostly relating to the power supply.
    Interestingly the model has just been rereleased in the UK as the Cine 5. It uses a 6inch tube.
