I'm selling my JVC in order to do my annual upgrade. I purchased the projector new from projectorpeople.com (authorized dealer) in Dec 2011 and it is registered with JVC. There is still a little over a year left on the warranty. The original bulb has about 650 hours of low lamp mode use on it right now and is still plenty bright. My eBay feedback (under the same name) is 100% so you can buy with confidence.
