Optoma VDHDBZ? What is this?

Today I had the opportunity to buy an almost-new Optoma 1080P DLP projector for about $1,350. The only model # on it was "VDHDBZ" but searching on Google hasn't really produced any real info on this. Can anyone tell me about this projector and whether they feel this is a good deal?
