I have a (basically dead) Optoma HD81-LV that is apparently still under warranty.
I called Optoma service, and they said they couldn't warranty service it b/c it's been end-of-life'd, but that I could send it in as an out-of-warranty repair and they could replace it with comparable projector (TBD) for the cost of what it would cost to repair ("maybe $500").
This seems a bit off to me (kinda defeats point of warranty), but whatever. I'm also not too happy that it took a bunch of projectors to get one that worked... is this standard for Optoma projectors? The official HD81-LV thread wasn't too kind on the brand for similar experiences.
Anyway... should I risk "maybe $500" for a "comparable" Optoma projector? Or continue my search for a projector...
