Quite a deal, especially if it came with extra bulbs. Bulbs for digital
projectors can run more than what you paid for the projector. When I had
to buy a replacement for a projector a while back I was astonished at
the cost. I asked why the price was so high. The tech murmured something
about critical color balance. It didn't really matter. The bulb was
proprietary and I didn't have an option.
