Ah, sad to see it going then. :'(
Mind if I ask, why the 725hd? I believe there's a very similar model for about the same price (750hd maybe?) That provides better contrast which isn't hard since if the 725 is the one I'm thinking, it has been measured at 200:1 contrast despite what Epson claims (I may be thinking of the 720hd and the 725hd is the better one).
It's certainly a bright projector, but not even solid brightness can beat too much light while reasonable light can be used around slightly dimmer but much better looking projectors.
I'm not knocking it if it's your choice for a reason, just letting you know there are at least two options that cost the same or less offering full 1080native, about 5X better contrast and better out-of-the-box colors. If you really want LCD and don't need 3D, the Epson 8345/8350 is the best you'll find under $2000. Likewise, if you can fit it within your placement needs and aren't super sensitive to RBE, the w1070 looks as good or better than anything under $2000.
The 725hd is brighter, but still not bright enough to fight a ton of light and its contrast is poor enough that it fights you along-side the ambient light instead of helping against it.
Once again, I'm not knocking it if it's your choice because it fits a specific niche that you need it to, BUT if it was simply a store-clerk's suggestion..I'd ignore it and go with something better that costs less.
Edit: sorry about writing such long unrelated responses when you came here for one, simple, specific question. On a more related note, I believe it is the polarizer (most often blue) that gets toasted in LCD units and I don't think the organic/inorganic panel often outlasts the polarizer..unless I'm being dumb and the polarizer/panel is one unit.
