Summary: Personal Experience Im on my second BENQ projector. Flat out, they do not last. They will have glitches with the software that tell the system that the bulb is out when it is not. You have to send the unit back to BENQ, and maybe they can fix it. I have to say the people at BENQ are very good though. They have been very helpful. Problems Goes through bulbs. Sometimes they last less than 3 months.
