Hey folks

Does anyone have any suggestions for how/where to sell a Barco Data 808s? In great condition, fully working as far as I know (last time we fired it up was probably ten years ago, but I'd be quite keen to have a play and get it going again).

I know there's interest in CRT projectors in some circles. Tho I imagine "limited interest" would be an understatement.

Although it was used at home (infrequently) it's currently at my father's old office, which needs to be cleared soon following his retirement. I really don't want to see it go in a skip. I would probably cry a bit.

Yes, we do still have our Barco - it was carefully moved into a nice safe dry storage unit before the sale of the office.

I do still have the 808s. I haven't fired it up in a while, but I can check to see how it is. It was fully working in 2005 (!) and has had zero hours put on it in the last ten years!

Obviously, shipping it to Peru is likely to be difficult and expensive. Unless Stridsvognen would like to carry it over to you in his hand luggage? :)

Hi there, whereabouts are you located please? If anywhere within potential striking distance of West Yorkshire UK I may be interested in knowing a bit more about this beast.

I am something of a CRT fanatic, and yes I made this account just to ask you about the projector in case you were wondering
