And I run on high lamp always. At first disappointed because no gain to be had by cleaning. But actually a good thing. Shouldn't have to worry about it if it hasn't happened by now. Mine was in the very early shipments last year from AVS.

I changed again today from an 820 + hour lamp back to an 180 hour lamp thant I want to keep for max demo purposes. Jeff Maier is coming in Wed so that is a good broken in # of hours and shouldn't change a whole lot over the next several hundred once he optomizes with it in there.
So I did do the micro fiber wipe. For reference, my RS25 has around 1,000 total hours on it now being run on high lamp but with the altitude setting for max fan, inside of a projector module with another strong fan blowing out along the exhaust side of the projector.
I could see maybe a tiny
amount of very light colored residue on the fabric and could feel the surface go from a tiny bit sticky to feeling slightly smoother. Looking at the glass with a bright LED light, it does appear just slightly more clear. So maybe the 25 is not quite as subject as earlier models, or the high fan setting even with the lamp on high the whole time has helped keep too much heat from causing much buildup in my situation.
Slightly more clear though on the glass I believe.
