I have a Viewsonic projector thats about 5 years old, its a PJ551D. It has 2300 lumens, 1024x768 native. It has been fine up until a month ago, I got 2 black dead pixels which were not super noticeable so I didn't really care. In the last 2 weeks I have got another 6 more dead pixels but this time they are white and they flicker (SUPER ANNOYING). The bulb has about 1200hrs on it, do you think a 5 year old bulb could cause dead pixels?

Picture quality on the Viewsonic was good enough for what I am using it for, I have it mounted in my bedroom hooked up to a PC. I mostly only stream Netflix and play the occasional DVD from it. HD would be nice but I dont really feel the need to spend the extra money on it. (All my higher end stuff is in my living room)

I have had nothing but bad luck with Viewsonic projectors in my office and now this one at home, I want to stay away from Viewsonic. I came across this projector on sale for $336 at bestbuy: 2800 lumens, 1024x768 native: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sharp+-+3D+XGA+DLP+Projector/7256052.p?id=1218837453640&skuId=7256052&st=sharp%20projector&cp=1&lp=3

I know its the lower end of the market but it has a little bit better specs from my previous viewsonic. Any reason I should not buy this?
