I have a Panny AE900U with 1650 hrs on the original bulb. I have a JVC 1080p projector hopefully coming in less than two months. I would like to sell my old projector when the new one arrives. The picture is not as bright as it used to be, but I don't know how much dimmer it is since it has been a slow decline. I have always used low lamp until the most recent movies. Still use low for HDTV programming. The question is, should I replace the lamp now or not? If I do, I get to enjoy a brighter projector, and get more pleasure out of it as I wait for 1080P bliss. If I replace it I also can sell it knowing that I'm giving the buyer a better picture and hopefully a longer life on the bulb. The downside is I will loose some money since I won't get it all back on the sale. So I guess part of my question is - how much brighter will my projector look if I replace the bulb? What should I do given that I''m only going to have it for two more months?
