    Can anybody give me an idea what a Barco Data 800 with lovely tubes is worth?

    I paid 800ukp for a data 800 with a slight twinge on the green about 6 months ago. I think prices may have dropped slightly since then.

    Thanks Peter, I have been offered either an 8000 hour machine with lovely tubes for £650 or a machine with 34 yes 34 hours for £950 so I am going with the 34 hour one.

    Sounds an excellent price, if you have any more questions let me know.

    i have been told on several occasions not to pay much credence to the number of hours a PJ has on the clock. my advice would be to see both in action, also look down into the tubes (with the PJ off) and check for burn. these factors should also help you decide which is best.

    All barco projectors go through a minimum of 100 hrs soak and burn in test to try to force early problems.
    In my whole career of dealing and working for Barco I have not come across a factory released barco with less than 100 hrs.

    Check the software serial number in the front menu. If it doesn't exist or is different to the chassis, you have the eqivalent of a "clocked" projector.

    However the 800 series were such a reliable bunch that it would not matter if it was 34 or 34,000.

    These are all silly prices any how as that is less than the price of a replacement tube! The BG800 was £12000 new ten years ago.

    I should have made it clear that it has done 34 hours since it was retubed

    It's worth what you can get for it (obviously)
    new 800 tubes are about £1000 a go.
