Given its warranty and its plug and play, I think this would be worth the extra $40 or so dollars compared to the Osram that requires all the modifications and possible heat issues I mention above.
We were away for about 4 days. While we were gone, there were thunder storms and since all the clocks were flashing when we returned, I assume the power went out. That has happened many times since I've had my FPJ1 and last week, it was working fine. However, tonight, we watched a movie and the picture was in 4:3 mode. I thought it was something in my Oppo player but it turns out it was the projector (that has NEVER happened before). Once I figured that out and started watching, I noticed the pq is not what it was. It is actually pretty crappy. I did not check the hours, but I think it may have 1000hrs. I'm going to check all of my settings tomorrow to see if anything else changed other than the aspect. I'm wondering if we took a lightning hit or had some crazy surge. I've not noticed changes in any other equipment.
The lamp posted above is $116 and they only have 12. So, since it is not expensive, I'm going to buy one. Can I change it on the ceiling or will I need to remove the pj? BTW, it is an FPJ-1
