If you want to hold out for potential high lumens LED models that are supposedly coming, that is an option. LED is supposed to be free of any RGE. Poke around on the main forum, there may be some info out there. I have kept out of it since I won't be in the market for a while. With a 20,000 expected half life on the laser, I should be fine for a while. I also don't want to see something that would make me second guess my purchase, but that has not happened. I have been very happy with my projector.
