Back again with a Lamp Update....
Purchased on 2/8/2008
Lamp Hours on 1/1/2012 - 7567
At this rate (5.3 hrs/day) I expect the dreaded message in about 81 days... (yes..I like to play with Excel)
Still trying to figure out the best bulb to get...OSRAM or Philips....
thanks all for this thread...really helps out..
