The HD50 does 3D if you're in to that. Lamp lasts longer and its a little brighter. Unless you're into 3D I would just keep what you have till it blows. The Optoma HD131xe does everything the HD50...

All you can do is jump on them and tell them to either fix it in the next couple of days or send you a new one or even a refurbished one. These companies always have refurbished models.
