Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for five years and it has been in use everyday. I turn it on in the morning and off at night. I easily get 16,000 hours out of a lamp doing it this way. It is my main T.V. I totally disassemble the projector at lamp change to clean all parts of dust and dirt. I also lubricate the fans. One problem I just had was the color wheel came apart. I have ordered a replacement.
Summary: This product meets and exceeds the value verses cost equation. The projector delivers everything you would expect from a far more expensive product. If you are looking for value in a projector you need look no further. We use the projector in home, office, and church applications. Screens are also available throught Amazon at a great value. The multitude of functions provided by the projector make it hard to decide on the right size screen that will meet our needs.
