How many hours is a projector supposed to work ?
i bought a LCD projector -> used it for a while -> changed the lamp -> used it for some more polarizer got in such a bad state that was unusable -> i bought another LCD projector -> used it for a while -> lamp changed again -> now polarizer is on it's way out again.
already went through 2 projectors in last 4-5 years and now and because it's time for a 3rd i would prefer something that will last more than 2 years (4k-5K hours)
i use the lamp on normal (not low)
the fan speed on max
the filter is cleaned
i'm located in SoCal so the temps during summer get quite high
projector stays on even 8-10 hours at a time (during weekends)
So now in 2013 brink of 2014 is there any projector that has a better life expectancy ?
PS: i found this thread http://www.avsforum.com/t/518263/projector-life-question but is very old 2005 and closed
