I purchased this projector from projector people (authorized dealer) this week. The unit has only around 30 hours on the bulb and is basically brand new. It's the 5th JVC I've owned (RS1, RS10, HD950, RS45) and throws a fantastic picture. I will also throw in a brand new additional bulb form JVC. I actually just sold my RS45 this week. The only reason I'm selling is to try out something different for fun.
