My 4000 is far more impressive compared to the 2 Sanyo projectors I had previously too. These 4000 lamps look far brighter after 3000 or 4000 hours each. Would be a shame to lose it over a stupid fan.

I just thought to mention that in addition to fans, the internal variable iris, which changes rapidly from frame to frame, is also known to cause noises and/or shut down issues in some aging Panasonics, which can easily be mistaken as a fan noise.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
