Not sure if it runs any cooler than the bulb based projectors but you will notice it runs quieter, 75% laser is similar to eco mode on your projector and that is bright.
I too have a 120” 1.0 gain screen and the 12000B is much brighter than my previous Epson TW7300.
Not a gamer myself, but others who are have nothing but good things to say about the experience of 120Hz gaming.
The only problem you have now is stock availability. I was very lucky to get mine soon after launch, I didn’t realise they would be so thin on the ground.
One thing to mention on this is that the fan, appears to increase if the unit gets hot, so if you find the fan a bit noiser than you expect, it may be because the unit is getting warm, but like you cay on the whole if kept at a normal temp, it is higher brightness for less noise than the bulb models.
Have you ordered yet, what are stock levels like?
Nope, not yet, just waiting for a refund to go back on my CC then I'll order it. No stock will wait as long as it takes. I know Ricky already has a few on order.
As Mark says, one of our stock orders goes back to October last year when they were first made available for order. We have other orders in place, but at the moment, it is just a waiting game to see when that starts coming through. I think they were hoping to have some stock arrive this month.
