    Can anyone tell me what this projector is worth?

    I have for sale the following projector which i don't use and is taking up space. I'm going to stick it for sale, either on here, Ebay or i'm doing a car boot sale on Sunday and i have no idea how much it is worth. There is only one available on Ebay and it's for spares or repair.
    The details are:
    Mitsubishi SL4U SVGA Projector
    Max Resolution is 1280x1024
    Image Brightness is 1700 ANSI Lumens
    Screen Size is 40" to 300"
    Colour Support is 24-bit (16.7M colors)
    Built in speakers
    Lamp should be good although i haven't tested it yet but projector is in excellent condition.
    Apologies if i'm not allowed to post asking this.
    Thanks

    It doesn't say so on the specifics so i wouldn't like to say. I'll try and locate some more details.

    It's certainly not HD. The NATIVE resolution is 800x600 and it can 'resize' to 1280x1024

    Thanks for that although you notice that i did say i apologised if this wasn't the norm. And admin please feel free to move this as appropriate.

    Moved to misc forum. It is against the for sale forum rules to start a thread without specifying and asking price. If anyone spots any more, a report http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif would be appreciated. Thanks.

    id say about £100-150 - you can get pretty decent projectors for about £400 these days!

    It's fine though - even if i stuck it on at £100 i can see if anyone makes any offers. I'm in the middle of a mass clearout and getting rid of loads of PC stuff including this. A new baby is on the way so i need the room lol.

    The main info you need to put is the bulb life. I tried to sell a projector here 6 months ago

    I will check the bulb life when i get home. I know the bulbs are expensive as i've sold some on Ebay before. It definitely has the power lead and i'm not sure about the AV ones but i can easily source them. I think the remote is missing but i can probably source one of those too.
    I'll post more info tonight.

    I have all the leads but no remote although i should be able to locate one. I can't find a menu setting to locate remaining lamp hours ( i will look again tomorrow) but there is a feature where the lights blink when it reaches 1500 hours. The life span of the lamp in standard mode is 2000 hours (3000 in eco mode) and as the lights are not blinking it has minimum 500 hours remaining in standard mode.

    Update:
