I am still on my first bulb but also bought a backup from projectorlampsource. I haven't tried it yet and it is past the warranty period. I hope mine lasts longer than yours did. I also live in Canada, eh (Fisher Branch is 150 km north of Winnipeg).

I just bought a second used HC5 to replace an old Infocus IN76 projector in my bedroom system. The Infocus kept blowing fuses so it got replaced. The HC5 works and looks great on my Elunevision 92" screen. It's also a backup for the one in the main system.

Here is my new to me (bought second hand from epray) Mitsubishi HC5 in my bedroom 2ch/ht, replacing an Infocus IN76. I hope it doesn't fall down and brain me during the night! The picture is great, just like the one in the main 2ch/ht. The screen is an Elunevision 92" motorized Titan which used to be in the main system. It was replaced with a motorized Elunevision 106" Reference 4K screen.

Damn, I saw that picture and I was like there would be no way I'd be comfortable sleeping under that beast. Having first hand experience mounting mine to my ceiling mount, I had the mount tied into the ceiling studs, only way I'd trust it staying there considering the weight of this projector.

Cold use a little advice

I just sold my house and the buyers are to get my fully setup theater. I have an option to buy a projector to go where my HC5 is and take this one with me or to apply the $ to a new projector when I get to the new house and start over. I really love this PJ and could likely get a decent replacement to leave here for $1000; however, I am wondering if I'd be better off leaving the HC5 (only 700 hours) and go for a new PJ.


How much would I have to spend to replace this PJ with comparable PQ? Thoughts?

What was your usual use for this projector? If speaking strictly 2D picture quality, there're hardly better options for $1000 than HC5. If your unit had no problems I'd save it and enjoy until new 4K units become more affordable. For $1000 or so more you could buy a JVC X35 (used). You'd get better contrast but you'll lose excellent motion interpolation (Mitsubishi's one is just so much better). And the ability to do anything else except watching movies because of JVC's input lag. But that's just my perspective.

Movies, movies and movies. I have had no issues, the PJ is spot on. I am guessing I will take it with me until I can get a 4K.
