Following the upgrade to an X7000, I'm selling my beloved X500. I thought I'd give fellow members a chance to grab a great projector before putting it on an auction site. It's a very good unit, with around 1700 hours on the original lamp (mostly in 2D). It was bought in January 2015 from a JVC UK authorised dealer. I use it on an 88" diag Carada BW (effective gain 1.1) and can still get 14fL (50cd/m2) in low lamp with the iris at -5 in 2D. The brightness hasn't dropped significantly for a while, which is why I haven't replaced the bulb yet. I have no idea how much life is left in the bulb and wouldn't necessarily expect it to meet the 4000 hours advertised. Better plan to replace it within the next few hundred hours, even if it could last longer than that, that way the buyer can only be happily surprised. If you plan to play any 3D, you will likely need to replace the lamp right away. I fully autocaled it the last time I changed the iris setting, so if you specify your screen type, you should be good to go until you get it calibrated properly. I have also uploaded the BT2020 profile, so the PJ is calibrated for rec-7809, 3D, Mastered in 4K blurays, HDTV and BT2020 content. I have the original backup file to restore it to its factory default, and can do this prior to shipping it if preferred. It would then need a calibration as it wouldn't be as accurate. The original backup file will be provided anyway by email (the JVC autocal V5 software is needed to restore it). The price is £2,000 excluding delivery. If the PJ is not collected in person (preferred), it will be the buyer's responsibility to arrange collection and insurance, at the buyer's cost. The PJ can be demoed prior to buying, it's in perfect working condition and looks mint. There will be no return, for any reason, as anything can happen during the shipping of these, so the buyer has to make sure it's adequately insured. As I'd rather avoid any courier handling this equipment, I'm happy to deliver it in person to any place in Wiltshire without any additional cost. The PJ comes in its original box, with all the original documents / accessories. If shipped, it will ship in that box, with the lens shifted all the way up to minimise the risk of lens injury (unless the buyer has any other preference). Price and currency: £2,000 collected (in Wiltshire) Delivery: Delivery cost is not included Payment method: Bank transfer or cash, Paypal not accepted Location: Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected ______________________________________________________ This message is automatically inserted in all classifieds forum threads.
