My new Optoma HD-243x has flickering in Eco mode. It's got less than 100 hours on the bulb (about 50 hours is on full brightness).
After some back and forth with Optoma support they are recommending that I return / RMA the projector.
Fortunately I bought from Costco, and with their generous return policy I have the choice of starting all over again.
Question is.. should I just get a replacement HD-243x (I'm otherwise happy with the pj) or should I be looking at other makes / models?
How common is flickering with these lower end projectors?
I've had an InFocus and an Acer projector before but this is the first time I've seen flicker in Eco mode.
I'm looking for something for a light controlled room (basement) and that is quiet - around 25 dB.
