Bought a 7100 back in June and after ~100 hrs it developed problems firing the lamp and maintaining intensity. The image would occasionally start brightening and darkening in steps every few seconds. At first I thought it was a signal problem, but then observed that menus did the same thing. Ignored it for a week or so and the lamp eventually died completely right in the middle of a show. Returned entire pj to Optoma for a replacement. Replacement unit just hit ~150 hrs this weekend and guess what? Had trouble firing the lamp five times and image intensity flutter has started! PQ is fantastic otherwise, so here I go back to Optoma for another replacement. This is getting very frustrating.
