I have an Infocus 4805 & am concrened about replacing the bulb when it goes.

New bulbs are hundreds of dollars & maybe I'm better off buying a new projector.


I started another thread asking for a comparison of these 2:

1. ViewSonic PJD5122 SVGA DLP Projector -120Hz/3D Ready, 2500 Lumens, 3000:1 DCR

that I can get at Amazon for $363.00 http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-PJD5...1737079&sr=1-1 ..but it only has VGA inputs & I'm using Component cables. (I'd have to tear apart my whole system to switch to HDMI anyway)


Edit: I just read the owner's manual & a simple/cheap cable will work to connect it.


2. Optoma HD20 High Definition 1080p DLP Home Theater Projector

This has component ins & is $899.9 at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-HD20-De...1736782&sr=1-4

I will hardly ever being using my blueray player with it so I don't think I'd get much use out of the 1080 resolution.





The question I'm wondering about now is should I just get a new bulb & stick with the 4805 or get a new projector?

I don't believe in updating for the sake of it, but, it's time to move up to the HD20.


The 4805 was a nice machine in its day, but its not worth investing any cash into.


Why wouldn't you use your blu-ray player with the HD20?

I kinda figured it was not worth putting money into an old projector..Thanks.

I will occasionaly use my new blu-ray player to play my discs but I mainly use it to watch Netflix streamed movies, & I have not a single blu-ray disc.
