Subject: Re: [Noisebridge-discuss] Buying a projector

I bought a projector off Craigslist. It's a Mitsubishi XL8U:- 2000 lumens- 1024x768 native resolution- VGA and S-Video input- speakers- 6 lbs- carrying case w/strap, power and VGA cables

- no remote. Might want to program a universal remote to work with it.- unknown amount of hours on the lamp
It's in perfect working condition, aside from a small rubber piece that the previous owner removed because he said one of the fans was rattling against it. He gave me that piece, though, so I can work toward putting it back in, if it's actually needed.

I got it for only $120, so even if it does need a new lamp soon, I'd be happy to get one.
I'm going to hold off on donating it until I can work out a way to keep the projector safe. I might suggest mounting it in one of the classrooms. I'll come in for the Tuesday meeting and talk more about that.

P.S. the dude who I sold it to is a backend web developer interested in taking my frontend web development class, so he'll probably show up tomorrow!

Cool! Any old projector that will last for a while is fine by me. Looking at new ones, I was thinking something like this:http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-PJD5123-Projector-120Hz-Lumens/dp/B004UG3BQK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321817423&sr=8-1

But used is fine too as long as it works. Only $60 have been collected so far though, so it would be an investment on your part if you were to purchase one.

As a follow-up from this thread in September:https://www.noisebridge.net/pipermail/noisebridge-discuss/2011-September/024927.html

I'd love to donate enough to reach the goal for this projector. In fact, I'd be okay with going and buying one today and collecting the existing donation pool some other time... I just need to know what kind of projector you're looking for.
