I spoke to you last week about the 9115 vs the 9015. I wanted to gather

pricing info on the lamp before I contacted you.


The lamp that goes into the 9115 is in fact a 220W UHB, not a UHP. The heat

dissipation was never really an issue with the 9015, it is just a matter of

proper ventilation. If there is any heat build up from the unit

re-circulating its own air, that could cause premature lamp failure. And

with this unit, any time there is a premature lamp failure, it is an issue

because of the cost. But I have heard of cases where the lamp lasted well

beyond the expected life as well.


The wattage on the 9115 lamp is about half, so you would expect the unit to

not put out as much heat.


As far as the calibration is concerned, this is not something that was

required for this unit. But in the case of the home theater, this is an

option the 9015 owners found to increase the quality of the image. But again

this is not something that is required, but something private owners would

do to make the image as best as it could be. This is not an option for the

9115.


The 9115 lamp is a lot less than the 9015 lamp, it is also rated at twice

the life. This is a cost to consider because lamps for these projectors are

not cheap, and is an item you would expect to replace.

Well there you have it. I do not understand what he means by the calibration not being an option. This is the same unit as the upcoming Hitachi.

I think before you could have calibrations done by various people because it was the same projector as the JVC G15. William Phelps and Cliff offered calibrations and I think Dukane offered warranty coverage on their calibrations or at least the JVC Digital calibrations.


This would not be the case with their new units, probably because no one is doing calibrations on them yet.
