    Hi,

    I have decided to sell my above projector as I am not man enough to handle the awesomeness.

    I am also moving house and need something a little more portable that I can whip out for special occasions, rather than permanently stuck on a coffee table in the middle of the room with my girlfriend eyeing it disapprovingly.

    Projector comes with remote, power cable and just over 1600hrs on first bulb in eco mode.

    Price now reduced to £280 delivered.

    Awesome mini aquarium not included.

    Hi,

    That's a little low, how about halfway at 325?

    very interested in this for a friend. Looking for a HC4000 but the 3800 is nearly the same isn't it?

    Found a couple of snippets from reviews comparing the two:

    "The bottom line on the HC4000: It’s an improved HC3800, with improved firmware, but most notably, the move from Darkchip2, to Darkchip3 performance. While this doesn’t appear to be a really significant difference, one can see that black level performance has improved"

    "Fitting right in between sub-$1000 and over-$2000 1080p home theater projectors, the HC3800 was an inexpensive way to get a beautiful, film-like picture into your home without spending a ton of money.

    This year's model is the HC4000, and it definitely continues the legacy of its predecessor. The HC3800 and HC4000 are mostly the same, but the one clear area of improvement is contrast. With a new DarkChip 3 DLP chip, single-frame (ANSI) contrast is even better than before--and that's saying a lot, because the HC3800 was already excellent in this regard."

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks. It's certainly interesting. But will have to withdraw interest for now. In a couple of months if it still available may be looking again!

    Bump. I will keep this up until the end of the week, if it has not sold by then I will remove from listing.

    Hi

    A few questions:

    I am sure as you have put 1600Hrs on this it will not suffer from this that I have read "You may be aware that the first shipment of these projectors had a problem with random shutdowns. Mitsubishi has responded speedily to resolve this problem. Check for a firmware release other than 1.0 to confirm that your unit has been fixed. Pressing the UP, DOWN, and ENTER keys simultaneously on the projector (not the remote) will display the firmware release. Mine is 3.0."

    So to confirm can you let me know the firmware revision.

    Also can you let me know if this has been used in smoking or non smoking home.
    Do you have the original box and internal packaging?
    Did you ever have this ceiling mounted? (I know you mention coffee table)

    Thanks

    Hi, thanks for your interest. I will check the firmware version when I get home but can confirm that I have never experienced any shutdown issues ever. It has been used in a none smoking house and it has never been ceiling mounted. I don't have the original box but I do have another projector box with padding that it can be packaged in.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    If you are happy for the responsibility of safe delivery with the packaging you mention I can offer £250 delivered with payment by BT this evening.

    I originally offered this out at £350 so I have discounted it considerably already, I am willing to meet you halfway at £265 but wouldn't go any lower when I could clear more on auction sites :)

    No problem :) Give me about 2hrs and I will pm you the firmware and my account details. You're going to love it and I'm sad to see it go (I need something more portable to break out for special ocassions so will get a smaller 720p one), but sure it's going to a good new home :)
