Screen will be 98" in my dedicated room with the Epson 8500 UB & JVC DLA-RS15U projectors (Epson is for video/TV JVC is for films)

The best lamp warranty I have found is to use my Amex Gold on new projector/lamp purchases.

It makes a "90 day" lamp warranty into a "1 year + 90 day" lamp warranty.

Well "new" is pretty much out of the question at that price. The bulbs alone for many projectors cost $200 or more.

With that as your budget then scouring Ebay and Craig's List seem the most...
