Summary: I bought the BENQ SP890 projector in Oct 2010 from Amazon and have used it 5-7 hrs. a day since then in my Living Room Home Theater and Computer Network. I am on my 2nd lamp which I changed at 3050 hrs. using Economy Mode and it was still bright enough to enjoy all aspects.
Summary: Personal Experience There is nothing like it out there now, folks. Whopping 4000 ANSI lumen of brightness, serial 9-pin RS232 AND RJ-45 wired network connectivity with a graphical web browser control panel for all functions, like with the big dogs, even a confidence video monitor output.
