Hello again, group -
Pro-8100 still operating (overnight unplug H.B. work-around) and looking GREAT
@ 4950 hrs (just switched from eco), shooting 16' (coffee table mount) onto Da-Lite model C
(2.8 R.R.) 119'' , all bought in '08 with advice of AV members over in the "Screens sub-forum"
and in this thread ! Terrific combo after all these years of Big Screen (HD sports , Cable T.V. and Movies)
Best buy / $ ratio , indeed !
Actually, there is plenty of life left in the original lamp in normal mode now with this set-up , due in part owing
to leaving it on rather than too many on/off cycles that the hours may otherwise indicate as are my viewing habits,
advised here .
Thanx , for all the shared experience , folks !
Time has come to set aside the original lamp as a good spare is now my thinking .
MWave thru ebay has a bulb in route , which I thought to take a chance on at what, some $200. savings over the
sure bet OEM lamp.
I have been following the unfortunate discourse here with these MWave generic lamps, though I couldn't resist at
least one effort at success with a 29 day trial before going OEM .
Will be sure to report back with my MWave experience for others to read and add to the body of knowledge here.
Ideas on the best source and cost for an OEM lamp ?
Best regards and continued happy viewings, all !
