That's good to hear how many years did the last one last you?

I think you should. You've had your pj for what, 2 years now? Maybe even longer. You don't have that many hours on it at all. Keep in mind, I use my pj for everything including tv shows, and sports too.

Did you ever clean the filter? I have to admit that ive only done it once i moved it( the installer did it actually). Apart from that I've neglected doing that job ever after that.

You have at least 1000 hours before cleaning duty. Your pj is in it's own separate room. I would think access to it would be pretty easy?

Really? I recall seeing it in it's own little house. Seemed to have easy access. I need to bring a ladder in from the garage to change mine.

I checked mine at 1000 hours and nothing, then at 1600 I had some lint in there and the panel and lamp had a haze on it. After cleaning the pic is sharper and really pops now. Hoping for 3000 hours as well.

By the way Wabo, nice set up!

Hey Caboooooooo! What's happening?

I was pleasantly surprised by how many hours I got out of the original lamp. I think you will have no problem making it to 3000. At about 2000 hours I switched the pj to 'high' mode and had the aperture wide open.

When I reach about 600 hours on this new lamp I'm going to clean the "prism" and the filter again.

In the meantime I'm gonna kick back and enjoy some quality movies. Salud.

Hey, Franin.

I don't think I got the message at 1900 hours. But I'm not 100% certain. I did receive it at 2900 hours though.

I just got it the other day everytime i turned the proj on it was on the centre of the screen. I just replaced the lamp( bought one early last year), it wasnt hard as i thought it would be so im happy about that. Resetting the lamp time was different through the remote.

GET THE CASTERS! GET THE CASTERS!

That said, I've returned for a look at your Synergy. I may be closer to deciding on one of them for myself (despite the size challenges), though likely the a la carte version since it's not as heavy plus that style will better go with the Sanus Euros already in place here.

I know you don't use the rear panels that come with the Synergy, but do they accommodate the cords coming out those back slots pretty well?

Hit any button and the message goes away. Way cool you had a back up lamp ready to go. Yeah, changing the lamp is really easy. Did you clean the filter too? Lol. It took me a good while to figure out how to reset the lamp time using the remote.

Hey prepress.

Sounds like you're getting closer to getting a new stand. It can be a tough decision. Once in place, it not too easy to pack up and return.

As for the back panels, IIRC, there is a hole in each section for cable management.

There are nicer racks out there, but the versatility of the Synergy is hard to argue with. The spaces at the top and bottom of the back panel seem as though they'll accommodate whatever cables I put inside that need to run outside. Either walnut or black, with black pillars at this point. Black shows dust too well (and there's plenty of that here), but that might look best with my otherwise all-black system setup.

Is there some sort of cable management system involving the pillars? I though I heard something about that but haven't noticed it on Salamander's website.
