Excerpt: The setup I have for this is as a home theater PC. The original bulb only lasted a little over 1900 hours in economy mode. I have the projector upside down mounted to the bottom of a bookshelf which might be causing a problem with heat dissipation.
Excerpt: Received a genuine Epson replacement lamp. Got 5000 hours in eco mode on my original lamp. Figured that I buy the same to hopefully get close to as many hours as the original. Most 3rd party lamps listed the rating at 2000 to 3000 hours.
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding
