Default refurbished projectors

Hi Guys,

Anyone care to chime in on whether or not they have had any experience on purchasing a refurbished projector from the factory vs new? If someone has a good selection of refurbished would that be safe to assume that particular projector isn't a good buy?

For the cost of a refurbished one, i would be able to save enough money to buy a new projector for the Gemmy and have a rebulit for the 16 x 9.

Thanks for any feedback.

From the factory, with a warranty, I probably would not have a problem with it, as long as it was not my main commercial projector. If you have something else to use too, why not save a little $$.

Although I have no experience with referb projectors, so take it with a grain of salt. I save some $$ by buying new, old stock. My projector is a great piece, but was going out-of-production. So there is newer tech out there, but mine was about 1/2 price for a brand new unit. Just keep searching, you will find something that is in your budget and spec range.

I wouldn't have an issue if it's from the factory and comes with a warranty.

i have purchased lots of refurb items (speakers, lights etc) and figured if the factory took them in to fix it and double check everything then it should be ok. so far havent been dissapointed. never gotten a DOA but have on new ones. sometimes id prefer a refurb.
