Summary: Personal Experience What a piece of junk. Had it for 3 years and now there is a blue streak on the rights side of the screen. Google search shows it's the optical block gone bad and this appears to be quite common with this projector. Most people that don't have the extended warranty end up junking the projector rather than repairing due to cost of the repair.
Summary: Personal Experience About 2 years old, first bulb 2700+ hours, second bulb about 300 hours, ceiling mounted, never moved, run about 3 hours per day, ave temp around 78-80 degrees at ceiling. Problems Starting to develop a blue haze in lower left corner that is getting worse and moving toward center every day. I think it's the LCD and only estimate that I can get without giving Panasonic another $130.00 is around $1000.00. THIS WILL BE MY LAST PANASONIC PRODUCT EVER.
