I am considering a like new, used RS-40, 7-8 month old, less than 400 hrs, $2-$2.5k price range. Reportedly, the lamp is performing close to what some of the best readings on this thread. After going thru most of this thread, I have become kind of hesitant to pull the trigger with the brightness/lamp dimming issues. What is the current state of affairs regarding this? Are users getting premature lamp failure or dimming with this PJ? Has any statement or any acknowledge/correction come from JVC?
Is the ask price to good to be true or as I think it just probably reflects the market concerns with this unit?
