I'm interested in the lamp replacement issue as well. I think H27 is the kind of "picture-thrower" you dig out from your attic in 30 years and hook up to watch something with the family. Then you throw frases around like "what a funny old thing", "still working and it was one of the good small ones back then!", "it's not that bad! Cool!" and "but it makes a hell of a noise! -and we actually thought it was pretty silent back then, how old fashioned.." (that's my hope anyway, I hate all electronic devices that makes any kind of noise).
Ok I'm rambling, but maybe one should buy a pair of extra bulbs now? How long does Optoma keep these in production -I mean do they have a policy in this area?
