You're trolling, right?
1. the 90 day warranty on bulbs is a joke; ridiculously too short.
2. manufacturers should state real-world bulb life instead of up to 3000 hours for the HD72 bulb. I got ~1500 hours for my bulb.
"Other PJs that have blown their lamps after only 500 to 1000 hours" --- this is supposed to make us feel better??? Tell that to all the other HD72 posters who have had premature bulb failure.
Note that if you had read this entire thread, the general consensus is that there may be a problem with the HD72 itself and not
just the bulb necessarily. Not to mention the fact the Optoma's customer service in handling this problem is nothing short of incompetence.
