Knockoff lamps are like playing the roulette.

So far I've had 4 lamps in 3 projectors (2 Benq, 1 Optoma) and all of them flickered. Just be glad you don't have a Sony HW series.
That's the price of rainforest site warehouse deal, which are essentially always returns from within the 30 day return period, so usually hardly used and most likely the lamp would still be within Optoma's warranty, and if not you can always return it. In the end I just decided to order a HZ39HDR so I don't have to deal with lamps anymore.

Have you contacted Optoma to see if your projector was one that was effected by a known issue causing lamp flicker?

This is a video review of the HD29H, which IIRC, is the same as the NAFTA HD27HDR:


it's especially interesting because it compares the HD29H to the true 4K UHD300X.
