I will upgrade to a newer projector but I will wait a few more years at this point.
I haven't been back to my local cinema since I built my theatre room and don't miss it one bit.

There's another guy on the forum has over 10,000 hours on his 13,000 plus I believe .Says it's as good as the day he bought it, changed the lamp every 2000 hours . MyVW500
was trouble free for three years tack sharp 4K image up until the day I sold it , contrast 10500:1 . Nice to see some members getting the most from their projectors and logging high hours such as this.
Everyone boasts about the latest and greatest features but few ever get this far out before switching to something new, many myself included don't even make it through the warranty
period before switching.
I've purchased the JVCRS600 and a Sony VW675 since I sold the VW600 . Outside of some upgrades to current standards and minor improvements in the overall image the VW600
would have held it's own in my theater for another year or two and saved a bunch of money. Nice to see a few smart members posting great success for longevity however, someone has
to pave the way for being an early adopter .
In the mean time I have a couple projectors for sale, I believe a new one is coming out and have to be ready .
