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.
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.
