    Hi All

    For a few months now I've been pondering a projector upgrade to a 1080p model and now the time has come.

    I therefore have for sale my Optoma HD65

    - Originally purchased off here by another member about 3 years ago
    - Box, manuals, remote included
    - Unit is unmarked and in full working order. It has always liked the power cable to be seated in firmly, apart from that it's been faultless during my ownership.
    - Lamp hours currently at 1370 and as far as I know it's still on the original lamp.
    - Collection only and I encourage the buyer to allow time to enjoy a demonstration (let me know in advance if you have any film clip requests and I will do my best to oblige) :cool:

    Any questions please ask, based in Herts EN11.

    I'd love to take this off your hands if you get no bites and change your mind about postage. :)

    Hi

    I'm interested in this but I'm slightly concerned about your comment regarding the power cable having to be seated firmly. Is this something that's caused problems or is likely to get worse, in your opinion?

    Thanks.

    Hi Timdog

    I'm worried now that mentioning the power cable thing may have steered people away - I just like to describe things accurately and I doubt others would have even mentioned it.

    To clarify: this has not caused problems and I believe it's just inherent of 'kettle lead' connections - sometimes you feel like you've plugged them in far enough but as they don't give a satisfying 'click-in' (i.e like an HDMI connection / SPDIF connection), you sometimes have to push them in a bit further than you think. Upon doing so, hey presto, all is well.

    If you're local I'd have no qualms about you dropping by to check it out :) There is nothing at all loose, the PJ largely stays put in one place and has not incurred any damage and it's not something I'd see could get worse. The 2nd 'push in' has always powered on the unit - maybe I should be less dainty with my electronics :)

    Hope that helps,
    Russell

    Hi Fuellg

    I'm actually in London tomorrow on a non work related thing (passport renewal!) - will be around Victoria, Central London.

    Wilkins - I'd rather avoid posting, sorry.

    Hi Russ, I may be interested in this and as I work very close to you collection would be no problem. However as this will be my first projector I was wondering if it would be ok with you if I could possibly pop along for the demo you encourage in your op, I fully understand though that any offer I may make, if the projector is suitable, must be made through this thread.

    As mentioned I work very close to Hoddesdon and can pop out from work any time during the day, only if this is convenient for you obviously, it's easier for me during the day, rather than evenings or weekends, as I live further away from you than I work.

    The last thing I would want to do is waste your time but as it will be my first projector I think a face to face chat and a demo would help me greatly to see if this projector would be suitable for the set up I have in mind.

    I hope this doesn't break any classified rules and is agreeable with you.

    regards
    Paul

    Hi Russ, yesterday after I posted I did some homework on the projector and when I got home I had a measure up where I had planned to put the projector and unfortunately the throw isn't suitable for what I need. So I'm sorry but I don't think it's going to be any good for me.

    Good luck with the sale though and best regards
    Paul

    Hi mate

    I will take the projector at the asking price and can arrange a courier to collect from my end you just need to box it up if you can?

    I can pay via BT if you like.

    Thanks

    Hi Paul

    You can demo away, I don't mind how long for of how many different things you want to try.

    Any time from Sunday 13th onwards is best - Weekends or evenings (from 6 onward) is good for me.

    Russ

    Hi Russ, thanks again for taking the time to demo the projector for me. As discussed I had another measure up and try as I may I'm afraid I can't make the projector fit where I need it to :mad: so I'm sorry but I will have to pass on it.

    I'd like to add that the projector would have been perfect and it's only down to the fact of my limitations for it's position that is the only stumbling block.

    GLWTS and whoever buys it I'm sure won't be disappointed.

    All the best

    Free weekend bump. Almost breaks my heart to see this hasn't been snapped up yet!

    I bought mine two years ago from this forum for about £230, and I still love it. One of the best value AV purchases I've made yet. Cracking little projector for a first-timer (which was me), a true no-brainer. Great picture onto my black widow painted wall.

    Sorry to crash thread, but couldn't help myself..
