I'm not sure about statistics, but that's how I use my TV, it's how my Dad uses his, it's how my former mother-in-law uses hers, and how parents I know with kids use theirs.
Once again, Epson went out of their way to say "TV replacement" when discussing this, and to me that means as an alternative to a large flat screen for the family room, not as a home theater projector.
Granted. that's because none
of us consume content on phones or other devices (and really, if I had kids I'd take their phones away if they were choosing
to watch content on a 5" display rather than a 100" one.
Note the Epson rep also proudly touts compatibility with "the latest gaming consoles" which also increases usage.
: I went back and he quoted "over 20,000 hours" to half brightness, so that's more like six
years, and I think that's something most customers would be happy with.
