I agree - why waste a high quality home theater class projector on the kids for watching cartoon network or playing games.

Just the labor to accept, unpack, take apart, put back together, package up and ship will run you more than two or three hundred. Remember return shipping alone will be $60 to $100. These projectors are big and heavy. Much larger and heavier than a JVC.
Yeah, I forgot about the size of these, they are fairly large compared to what I am used to. I have had great customer service from Epson with my second projector. They even sent me out a free bulb once when the warranty on the bulb was over. Hopefully they won't hit customers too hard for replacement costs.

I'm also wondering if by the time the lasers need to be replaced if they will have Laser driven 4K projectors for half the price of todays offerings.
