I'm interested in a WXGA projector with compact dimensions for $400 for a new bulb every 1000 hours.


Anyone know the scoop on the bulb in this pj ?

Ike, I just confirmed with Toshiba that the lamp life is acually 2000 hours on the unit. Projectorcentral is a good resource for things but they often have incorrect specs on their site. Do not take them as gospel.

Thanks very much AJ. That makes this projector very appealing to me. I wish there were more people on this board who had experience with this pj.

Well I don't own it, but I've used it many times. To be honest it's my favorite LCD16:9 machine. Awesome picture after a little tweaking (and don't ask what tweaking because it really will depend on the machine you buy). Color and contrast are a bit out of whack out of the box, but it really doesn't take long to dial in. The quietest machine I have EVER heard. Dead silent.

This looks like a great unit. I've seen some pretty good prices on the net. B-stock prices are really good.


The only other drawback I see is the throw distance. If this had a short-throw like the Panasonic pj's, I'd buy it today. I'm limited to appx. a 10.7 ft. throw distance. I'd like to get the 16:9 pic a little closer to 100" diag. than this pj will get me.
