I recently bought a 45es. The contrast was set at max and lamp power set to high by default, and the reviews I read say it's got "near perfect" settings right out of the box. In other words, the picture look great at high power and full contrast, both of which will greatly reduce lamp life.
I'm concerned that apparently the 45es must be at full output to produce a great image. All of my TVs and previous 4 projectors, as soon as I bought them, the FIRST THING I did was lower the contrast. That was always a common sense thing to do. Why is that not true for the 45es?
Also, I read about using high altitude mode on this pj, even if not located at high altitude. Supposedly that helps improve lamp life. True?
