I just noticed Amazon has these today for 655...and on the same day I'm going to look at that other projector too. Decisions! Great price though.

I'd just caution that if those settings were produced before the latest firmware was released they may actually do more harm than good based on what I read. My understanding is that the latest firmware is pretty calibrated out of the box. I am not saying it can't be improved, but I haven't run into any posted calibration settings for the latest firmware. I have a WOW disc I recently received but I haven't had time to use it yet.

POP! My lamp just exploded. I think I was around the 2000 hour mark but really not sure.
I should be able to find out the hours after I get a new lamp. Hopefully soon as possible.
I was always in smart Eco mode too. I managed to put all those hours in about 8 months. I guess I drove it too hard. There was also the weird bug infestation a while back where several tiny gnats got in the lamp housing. I think it's possible that might have reduced the life.

What do you mean the latest firmware is pretty calibrated out of the box? You mean straight from the factory? Because when we upgrade the firmware ourselves, there's no change to the grayscale that I know of.
