The LT50LP has gone down to a retail price of $350. If you look for it in the right places you can find it for less then that.

Show us a link or something. All price search engines are stating the regular $470 pricing. Where is this $350 MSRP located? Don't hold out guys http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Awesome! This thing just keeps getting better and better.


Now I just need to see some reviews of a Thumperized and Calibrated LT150 vs. stock.


Now....I wonder if the LT150Z bulbs will plug right in, since it has 200 extra lumens?

Just received my LT150 bulb from Dell http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif for $420 after taxes. Called them to try to get price matching. No way they said will they match after the fact http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif Threaten to return item as it's just received. They said sure for 15% restocking fee and I'd have to fork out shipping there http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif It's not worth it as I'll save about $1 after all the hassles and fees http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif I'm glad that they drop the price but hate that I missed it http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif Oh, well that's the way electronics depreciate http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Doesn't Dell provide a price guarantee? From the sound of Huey I guess not but I was always under the impression that they did for 30 days after your purchase.


I hope that in about 6-8 months when I need to get a new lamp that these puppies are below $300. I bought the LT150 with the impression of it costing $.50/hour to run it. Now it is down to $.31/hour. Keeps getting better and better. And if the LT150z lamp fits and we can get an extra 200 lumens, well then icing on the cake. If not, then it is bright enough for me as is.

Huey and Les,


Consider this a big phhtttpppt! to you from those of us who spent $2700 (or more) on our LT150's. :) Hehehe...


Oh well, I'm not complaining at all. $300 isn't bad for 1000 hrs of movies etc. Certainly helps alleviate one of the frequently mentioned drawbacks. I hope nobody decided not to get an LT150 because of the bulb costs....


Should have put it on AMEX, they have a $250 price protection guarantee. I know, I used it on my LT150.

Be patient ...

and wait for the combination of DELL 20% off the new list price of $350, or $280

i was happy to get in on the 20% off deal on the bulb for $380.

even though i've only got 80 hrs on my first one, it's nice to know i've got another in reserve and don't have to worry about it when the time comes

am i upset to find out about a price drop?

are you f*&%%ing kidding?!

i've finally gotten into FP (which i wouldn't have believed 4 months ago) for a bargin basement price.

saving another $60 would have been nice, but really....

hell, i may even order another bulb.

by the time that one is used up, i'll probably be shopping for a new pj anyway...and i still won't have spent 1/2 what i would have expected.

i'm still a pretty happy camper!

Since the LT150Z uses a new bulb and the LT150 is discontinued could this mean that the price drop is NEC clearing out the rest of the LT150 bulb inventory and that LT150 bulbs could be harder to find in the future? Has this happened with other projectors before?

HA! Cancelled my LT150 bulb that was on back order from Dell. My counter-tactics prevail again.


Good to know about the AMEX price protection, though. I didn't even know I had it.

That is great news... Maybe knowing there are tons of more LT150s out there now, helped them re-calculate a good price. I'm glad I'm waiting till I'm short on hours, I'm sure the price should be lower then.

If you can't find it there, have a look on CDW.com, they list it at 339.78$....
