That's very good. Do you reckon that some of this extended bulb life is due to your viewing habits, i.e. relatively few on-off events on the bulb with respect to the total hours used? I guess your sesssions with the projector last between 2 and 3 hrs each time. NEC may have based their LT150 bulb life estimates on typical office usage where presentations may last 30 minutes on the average.
Have you seen any significant reduction in light output or any colour shift?
I use it for TV & DVD. Sometimes it gets left on for several hours, other times it may be on for 30 minutes in the morning while I scan the paper and get the news from Fox. I've probably been more careless about leaving it on since the bulb is high hour. I'm really ready to switch bulbs but I want to see how long it will go.
Thanks Jose - I forgot I posted to THIS thread - I found these codes within the last week and found that I am at 1880 hours on my 1st bulb - has to be 1890 by now. Someone reported the brightness DOUBLING by putting in the new bulb (checked it with a meter), but in my controlled light room, its still plenty bright at this lower output level.
I'm REALLY flirting with disaster by not having a spare bulb sitting around - its gonna happen at the WORST possible time - I just know it
