Purchased from eBay. Has just under 700 hours on the lamp, so plenty of juice left in her.

200,000:1 contrast
eye ball melting 2400 lumens

Great projector, puts out an amazing picture, even in an ambient light filled room with the lights on.

Original box. No warranty for obvious reasons.

NZ model still costs $4700

I am in Christchurch and happy to ship at buyers expense. Otherwise happy for local pick up and more than happy for people to view if interested.

PM me if interested and can discuss pricing

This is a piece from Arts review at

The real strengths of the Home Cinema 5010 projector, are numerous, but it’s first and foremost strength is as a 2D projector. The great 2D image quality, especially on dark scenes, thanks to excellent black levels, really work for me. What I mostly see, is what I liked about the Home Cinema 8700UB last year. This year, you get the same, for only $700 more, but with a lot of value add: 3D plus more brightness, split screen, and a few other goodies, thrown in for good measure.

The 5010 has very good out of the box 2D performance, and great color accuracy once calibrated. I like the menus, the remote, and even the manual (there are no truly great manuals). That it measures more than 2000 lumens in a world where most of it’s competition can’t beat about 1100, sets it apart from most.

When it’s time for 3D, the brightness again sets it apart from most of the other projectors out there.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

timbosan: What kind of price are you looking at getting? How much to ship to Auckland?

Would like around $2200

Shipping to Auckland, wild guess could be around $60-$70. She is a beast. Plus would want to make sure is fully covered insurance wise.

I might be able to get it cheaper through work though, almost free.

$2100. Will give it a couple of days, if no one is interested, will keep for myself.

Not selling for less than it's worth.

Hi, do you still have this for sale?  I could be very interested, I am just catching up on the specs of this model.  Would you wait a few weeks for payment?

I am in Auckland so we will have to look at shipping to.

Yup, still for sale.

No rush with payments.

Can get a quote for shipping once you've decided and I might try to see if I can ship through my work.
