Just like to add my experience to this thread.
When I first fired mine up new out the box, it would run for less than a minute then it would start flickering like crazy and shut down with the leds flashing. I read somewhere, probably here, that the bulb break in should be in bright mode. After putting it in bright mode, it shut down a couple more times and then straightened out. When I finally mounted it upside down on the ceiling, I had to go through it all over again. Once the lamp got broken in, it performed flawlessly without the slightest hint of lamp problems. It was kinda scary and I almost decided to send it back as defective. They really should pre burn in the bulb before shipping.
