At 2650hrs in two years on my X7900 first lamp I am down to a little more than half original brightness. The lamp was flickering a bit in low lamp, so I ran it for a week's viewing in high lamp. Flicker has gone but a new genuine lamp and housing is ordered and on the way (these are backordered with JVCUK).How many hours are people getting on the original lamp?
I'll swap it out as soon as the new lamp arrives.
The new lamp cost means a lamp hour costs me less than $0.20 US - pretty reasonable entertainment.
