Your hotspotting issue is a combination of a screen with more gain than you need, and your throw being very close.

The 8100 was notoriously bad when it came to bulb life. The 8350 was fine with bulb life as long as you kept it in high altitude mode. I don't think your projector was a lemon. It's just how these...

The Epson eb-x11 is a really bright projector. Even if you take a lot of lamp life into account, It's probably still pushing over 2000 lumens. The Sony hw40 is bright compared to other "Home theater"...
