Not a recommendation, but from serious purchase quantity for clients and then having little back flow, Pureland Supply (about $185) has the Phillips lamps mounted in the Sony housings and as long as the Phillips lamps are in there... Only the normal arc issues rectified by high/low settings, run well for extended periods.

I reiterate again, lamp hours are directly connected to power cycles. The more cycles, the less and from the sounds of it, more problematic (shorter/arcing) issues.

So which are the best lamps out there? and where are you guys buying em?

And my 50ES started flickering again last night. Had been several months of low-lamp perfection but it didn't last. Back to high lamp for a while I guess! At 1020 hours now.

All projectors with UHP lamps will display arcing/flashing. Iirc, only Christie's for a time had a flicker mode that automatically tried to eliminate the visible pulsing of the lamps.


I have over 6000 hours on my original lamp and have found that with just a few presses of buttons on my remote, switching from high to low or versa takes but a few seconds.

Just for grins and because the apps are free.... Take a light reading in lux with your phone of a 100% white full screen pattern. Do it in high and low mode.

Using the camera pointed at the PJ from the screen, get a reading in lux

Lux/10.67 = FL with a zero gain screen.

This will give you a very accurate FL measurement.

While your 51+fl would indeed be too bright in a dark room, I sincerely question whether the PJ even with a brand new bulb would produce that level.

Just trying to help...
