My original first bulb got very dim at just under 400 hours, then popped while a new one was on the way from JVC. I've been enjoying this one (002) and have about 250 hours on it. However, in order to get 14 ftL in my bat-cave off a 1.3 gain screen, I need to run it in High power mode. At this point, 3D too dim to enjoy (never mind ghosting).
The RS40 is my third JVC (RS2, RS20, RS40), but at this point, I'm seriously considering a move to Epson (or wait an hope that Red hits one out of the park). JVC needs to stand behind their product and fix/replace these lamps if I'm going to remain a faithful customer of their product.
Q1: Are the 003 lamps with the flappers any better (brighter/longer lasting)?
Q2: Has anyone gotten JVC to replace a second lamp for free?
