Glad you like it. I faced the same choice last year but decided to stay with JVC, again, due to the better contrast, so even 2D yields better depth and realism.

Like any major purchases, all projector decisions are a compromise of what you can live with or without.

Hi,


I have an RS45 and the bulb is getting a little long in the tooth, so I was going to order a replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get an official OEM replacement for a reasonable price? I was thinking of ordering from buyquest.com (http://www.buyquest.com/PK-L2210UP-O...Module-for-JVC). Does anyone have any experience with buying from them?


Thanks!

I would read that carefully. Note they say: "new OEM lamp module", then they go on to say that it includes module and lamp. Sounds like if you read between the lines, you are getting an OEM housing, but not an OEM lamp. What reinforces that in my mind is the price. We buy in quantity direct from JVC and they are selling the lamp cheaper to customers than we can buy direct as a dealer from JVC.

Anyone have the guts to try this $76 bulb?

http://www.amazon.com/PK-L2210UP-DLA...ct_top?ie=UTF8

It's described as an OEM bulb and the housing appears to be a version 3 with the aluminum flapper.

Anyone have $76 that they want to throw away?

These are probably a little better than the $76 option. http://www.projectorlampgenie.com/us/DLA-X30/

The $363 one is all OEM and includes free shipping, so it's not a bad deal. I have an email into them to see if the housing on the other 2 includes the aluminum flapper on the vent port. Anyone have experience with either the $194 Genie365 or $257 Diamond Lamp options?

Do you know the value and the temp rating of the electrolytic capacitors on the ballast board?

I would be leery of a bulb being sold that cheap... Just my two cents...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...
