    Hi every one.....I`ve been reading through this forum with great interest. I`m about to purchase a projector and have narrowed it down to either the Toshiba MT 3in LCD or the new Ellie CRT.I`m not a very wealthy person so money is a big issue and am just looking at s/hand before takeing the plunge.Can anybody tell me anything about the RCF 5001 crt as I have been offered one 3yrs old with 7` electric screen. Any info would be appreciated esspecially what it`s worth...Thanks in advance.I`ll keep you all posted on what I eventually purchase. My room is (my lounge) 17`x12`any comments would be appreciated <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    RCF: Italian projector manufacturer. Distributed in UK for a while by Marata Vision in London. I'd guess the 5000 was near the top of their 7" devices. Similar to a Seleco400 I'd guess.

    Best to contact Marata for full specs if you get no joy here.

    Walter,

    The LS5001 is a standard 15-16 Khz horizontal scanning projector i.e only designed for standard interlaced video. An Ellie or Seleco 400 would be a much better bet.

    Regards Rob.

    Better still go for a second hand Barco. Generally better value for money I'd say.

    Hi thanks to both of you for a very prompt reply, I think I will be giveing the 5001 a miss. I can only find anything on the 3001.I am worried about buying secondhand for obvious reasons,it seems an awfull lot of money for second hand that I may not be able to tell if theres a problem with them.I keep comeing back to the Toshiba MT£ and the Ellie. Never had to buy anything so difficult...........thanks again
