Actually the "one time accommodation" bothers me a lot. This isn't an accommodation, its a manufacturing default. And there are many others who have received more than one replacement because the first replacement died early too. Now, those were probably not the 003 bulbs, but we don't know for sure that those are really OK.
Bottom line is that JVC should be replacing bulbs within the 2 years warranty of the PJ as long as they continue to fail early (or until a combination of bulbs gets you at lest 2000 hours of use).....not just a "one time accommodation." Let's say your lamp fails again around 300 hours and they rule out the ballast but refuse to give you a third lamp. That would be a very disturbing change it how JVC had been handling their bulb issues lately and indicate that they are not going to stand by their product.
They make it sound like they are doing you a favor instead of making things right due to their faulty bulbs:mad:
