Mine started at probably 550 hours or so - My unit still has under 1000 hours at 3 years, I'm a "weekend watcher" only.
Yes, it might be different if I'd had the thing on 24/7 like a TV, but that's...

I'd be hesitant to purchase one at this point, even at a great discount. What I'd settle for at this point is a refurb unit - That's how Epson handles it.

Thanks for the replies!

First to be clear, this is now not under warranty.
My beef is that I did send it in for this last year when it WAS under warranty and the issue came back in about 2...

Thanks all -
Guess I'll investigate the possible cost of repair at least, and if it's too dear I'll live with the Epson and start the look for the next one eventually.

The biggest difference I see between my older JVC RS40 and my Epson 5020 (besides the overall brightness) is in the picture "refinement".
I got the Epson for the bright 3D (which I find very good...

Yes, I've noticed that too - my JVC was even worse with side by side files, but the Epson handles all 3D sources equally in terms of crosstalk.

I haven't seen the newer JVC's but I can tell you that there is just no comparison between the 5020 and the first generation RS-40. Both in brightness and crosstalk the Epson is vastly superior for...

The projector has a 2 year warranty itself, not sure about the bulb. My original one is still going at about 650 hours, has dimmed some of course but still quite watchable.
