I've got a hc3800 and heard from OTHER projectors (sanyo z1 for example) that with some if you run them in eco-mode you actually get LESS lamp life because the air ventilation is being dimmed too much. Anyone knows something regarding the hc3800?


Thank you!

The Z1 is a old dog.



The accepted norm is that all lamps have longer life spans under Low Lamp mode...usually 33% Also running in Low lamp allows you to acheive deeper Black levels.

I have never heard of that... Generally running low is best as it adds max lamp life, minimum fan noise/work on the projector, and generally yields better black levels.
