    I am selling my beloved Sony VPL VW100. It has been with me for nearly 10 years and provided literally over 2000 hours of wonderful entertainment in two different homes.

    It cost just over £6000 when bought as new. The projector is on its second bulb and that has a few hundred hours on it. The counter is showing 2206 hours exactly and was not reset when the second bulb was installed.

    I have uploaded a YouTube video of the projector being switched on and a short clip of a movie which does not do justice to the picture. The link is below.



    As I am changing quite a bit of kit at the moment so I am including an absolute bargain completely free of charge!

    The purchaser will also get an Onkyo TX-SR605 home cinema receiver that cost around £500 when purchased new at the time the projector was bought.

    Here is a link with more information

    Onkyo TX-SR605 review | TechRadar

    This is an unbelievable deal at just £179 for both a high end projector and receiver.

    Both come with manuals but unboxed. The Onkyo has a one for all remote and the Sony has its original remote. I will leave it to potential purchasers to read further online reviews and check all the specifications for both the projector and receiver.

    This is for collection from Lichfield in Staffordshire only. Any questions let me know.

    Price and currency: £179
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: Cash on collection or PayPal gift
    Location: Lichfield, Staffordshire
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hi thanks for the reply. I am not aware of any couriers that will insurance against damage on a projector so it’s not really possible. It’s a real shame but I think it has to be collection only to protect both parties. Thanks again though. I could help out with petrol costs perhaps if you are a distance from Staffordshire.

    Hi. I expect lamps will be a few hundred pounds as the projector was very expensive when I bought it. It’s no problem to see the projector working at all over the weekend. It is not on the ceiling now as in the video as it was taken down yesterday ready for selling but it can still be switched on and demonstrated.

    Hi. No problem at all. Just let me know a rough time when you know your plans and (assuming it’s still available :)) you are very welcome to come and watch the projector in action.

    Hi,
    Can you tell me where you saw the lamps available for a few hundred pounds?
    As the cheapest lamp I can find is over £500 and that's sold out. The ones that aren't sold out seem to be asking nearly double the price.

    Hi there. I haven’t looked but when I replaced the bulb I recall that I spent about £400. It doesn’t surprise me that they are expensive as this was a £6000 projector. There should still be plenty if life left in the current bulb though as they are rated for 2000-3000 hours I believe and this is the second bulb with 2206 on the continuous clock although I understand the quoted figures depend upon the mode the lamp is operated in and I always run on a bright setting.

    Thanks for all the interest but the projector is no longer available.
