The bulb just died in my X10 after 5 months of use. Last time I checked I think I had hit 300 hours or so. I seriously doubt it made it to 400.
I see conflicting info about bulb warranty. The Infocus site says 6 months on one page and 3 months on another. Yet, the page for purchasing a new bulb says 6 months. Either way, I suspect they will be good about this but it seems strange that with me having the pj on a UPS that I should have a bulb fail so soon. I see people talking about 3000-5000 hours on these. I've run on econo mode since day one. I think I tried normal mode once to see what it looked like.
Worst of all, I just bought a new AV receiver the day before yesterday. Now when that gets here I'll be projectorless
Methinks it's time to get an extended warranty on this bulb from Infocus. It's only another 6 months, but, if this is going to be the norm, better safe than sorry.
Anybody else get really short life on their bulb?
