Just an update and a thumbs up to Epson for standing behind their product.

I bought my projector in late 2012, used it for ~100 hours and it has sat in my basement unused until this spring. Picture went dim last week after hitting the 300 hour mark and 6 months after the 2 year warranty (and well past the 90 day bulb warranty from 2012).
Called in to Epson today for second time and they have agreed to send me a free bulb!

Refreshing to have a company back a product well after the warranty.

I will buy and recommend Epson after this experience.

I have been buying my bulbs from ebay. Some company called electrified something or another. Can't remember off the top my head. I always have to search my history to find them.

Anyway the last bulb with the housing cost me about $30. I bought it several months ago and it is still new in the box. My current bulb which I purchased from them for about $39 over a year ago is still running at 1759 hours. They aren't quite as bright as the oem bulbs so I always run in living room mode. Yes 1759 hours on a $40 bulb in living room mode the whole time! I never got that kind of life out of an oem.

I will never pay $250 - $300 again.
