Sale of Panasonic PTAE500


Established Member
Hi all thinking of upgrading to PTAE2000 and will need to sell my panny 500 1000hrs in eco mode, so in theory another 4000 left also with a brand new spare bulb that came with it when i purchased from roy jowett any ideas how much i should be looking for the 500.

Also will my current Lmp bracket for the 500 fit the 2000.

The big problem with selling any projectors is whats available new to compare at what price.

As there are plenty of new current models (mainly dlp) available for less than £500 it puts the price for second hand gear down in the doldrums.

Even with a new bulb your 3-4 generation old ae500 cannot be worth more than £300 ish.

I recently sold a Sanyo Z1 on here for £135 and it only had 580hrs on the original bulb,that pj cost me over £1200 when new.

Yeah Kbfern that is the kind of figure i was thinking of, i have a friend who maybe interested if not will give it a go on here, but if i can get that kind of money i would be happy i paid £1400 for my 500 and it has been good to me and continues to be, thx for the reply.

ps any ideas on the bracket.

Sold my AE500 with no bulb for £100 to a mate.

Would you sell your spare bulb? if so I will ask him if he has got one yet.
