Summary: Personal Experience Bulb life around 100 hours! Infocus was willing to "fix" it while it was under warranty, but each time I got it back (3 times!) after another 100 or so hours... POOF! Bulb is fried! Hard to believe they "fixed" anything. Picture quality is good- enjoyed many movies.
Summary: Personal Experience 3rd lamp just shattered at 630 hours. I cannot justify spending $400 each time for what appears to be a design flaw. System was retrofitted with new power-supply under warrenty. It has gone through two LP5F lamps since.
Summary: Personal Experience We use our projector 1 hr every Sunday and the rest of the week it sits. Had the projector 4 years and this is the second time the bulb is replaced!! DO THE MATH!!! BEWARE!!!!!!!!
Summary: Personal Experience Nothing but problems--bulb failure, power supply problems. Inage quality is good, but everything else is average or bad. Optional module for expanding features is a waste of money. Problems Power supply problems and lamp failure problems.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had mine for 4 years now and have had no problems. I found this site while I googled for a new lamp. the one in there now has 2451 hours on it not ever using eco mode and it is prob time I bought a new one.
Summary: Personal Experience I cannot believe that people on here have complained about lamp life!! My units have consistantly delivered over 3000 hours per lamp. It is all down to the version number of the machine..
Summary: Personal Experience I use this projector on the road for educational presentations. It's great for use in a lighted conference or class room because of the high lumens and good image quality. Problems The lamp burned after 200 hours of use.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought it reconditioned for $500US or so. Worked great until the bulb blew in less than 400 hours. Then paid another $400 to have bulb replaced. Based on what I've read here that new bulb might be destined for the rubbish bin soon as well.
Summary: Personal Experience We have 13 of these units. Six of them have been consistently experiencing power supply problems that causes the bulbs to blow with minimal hours on the units. Problems Becoming a very expensive nightmare.
