I bought this in February 2010. Now, six months later the bulb has gone.
Promotional material claimed that I could reasonably expect 4000 hrs of lamp life. Having had a tiny fraction of this (750 hrs), I am annoyed. This is my second projector, used in the same way as the first: that previous projector lasted over three years before needing a replacement bulb.
I have also now been told by the supplier, Digital Components Ltd, that the bulb is not covered by the warranty, so they will not give me a replacement bulb. Given that the bulb is almost the entire cost of this product, customers are effectively buying an item without the statutory one-year guarantee.
