Wasn't there some speculation a while back that is might be possible to use the $389 Lightware LX8 bulbs in place of the NEC ones since the specs were almost identical? Has anyone actually tried this yet?
If they get a good price, I will probably get one as well, although a 1000 hours is a long time, for me I guess. I don't think I'd average even 2 hours per day, although for the first few days it'll probably be 8 or so. =)
I will try and see if I can find out some good pricing for the NEC bulb. There is not a lot of margin with these so I won't promise anything, but I'll certainly try. Please keep posting if you are interested so that I can get an idea of how many of you there are. That will also help in bargaining a price.
