17,000 hours - that's for half brightness, with linear dimming.


Let's call it 16,000.


So that's a loss of only 25% of brightness over 8,000 hours.

Just as a quick aside, usually we get absolutely shafted for pricing in the UK.


Not so with this, it appears.


VW300ES UK price = £5,800


Sony VPL-VW350ES US Price = $10,000

Excellent.


I'd be very interested if you have any 4K material which is also out on 1080p Blu-ray Disc so you can compare the two.

I wouldn't pay almost £5K for a projector like the X500 - the motion handling simply isn't good enough (for me).

For me, it's all about the films. Certainly, I watch a bit of sport on the projector too, because it's there, but I wouldn't buy one for that.

Fair points, but you're now comparing this new Epson to another Epson to the Sony to a JVC.
