The 8350 new on Amazon is 1249 I have yet to see it 900 new or even close to that used. Like I said the 8500ub with 150" screen for 750 was a deal too good so I took it.

I bought my replacement OEM blub from projectorzone.com for $250, $50 less than from Mitsubishi. It's in the exact same package that the original blub comes in.

...finally retired and spending time in my HT!!!

 

My equipment consists of:

 

Epson 9500 UB Projector; 110" JKP Affinity Screen; Panasonic BD30 Player, Toshiba HDA1 Player; Definitive Speakers (Center, Towers, Rear); Onkyo 608 A/V Receiver; Nevo Q50 Remote; TW HD Cable Box.

Thank you inspector I will keep that in mind when I go to get a replacement bulb.
How many hours did you get off those bulbs from Projectorzone? Are these teh same bulbs with premature lamp failure.
Or the fixed ones Epson claims to have replaced that is on their official website? Anyone buy bulbs directly from Epson
and gotten a good amount of hours from them?

I only have 250 hours on this bulb from Projectorzone, but it did come in a sealed box and it was from Mitsubishi. I guess there is a hellava markup if Projectorzone sells it for $50 less than Mit and they still make a profit.

I have my stuff finally setup (150" screen and 8500ub throwing from about 18ft). I have notice quite a bit of light pollution coming off the screen and reflecting onto the ceiling and side walls.
What are you guys doing to cut this out? My walls are beige and I can't paint bc its my main living area and it would look odd. I have thought about using a black table cloth to hang on the side of the walls and ceiling.
I'm not looking to spend a big chunk of change to get the finest materials, just something that will do the job. The tablecloth would hang on small hooks so I can take them up and down when I need to.

Any suggestions? I have found black tablecloths on Amazon 70" x 156" for 13.99... Is there anything else out there with similar costs and benefits?
