    Sony states up to 2000 hours!
    Not sure what the warranty is like for them though!

    2000 hours "standard" & 3000 hours "eco" or "cinema black" mode IIRC.

    Of course as always, YMMV :D (my HS10 on 2nd lamp @ 1200 hrs & Comer's on lamp number 3 :eek:).

    AFAIK, Kramer got his lamp replaced under warranty (I could be wrong) I got two replaced under warranty and paid €297 for the third from Pricejapan.

    Be very careful if you are using Paypal to pay them. Since my own problems with Paypal, I have since discovered that my story of unauthorised payments is far from unique :lesson:

    Are the lamps prone to going faulty Comer ? I would have thought that projectors were a bit more solid than that.

    I believe that suppliers are giving HS20 lamps for HS10s and they are much more realiable with better colour saturation. See here on AVS for more details

    4000hrs and still racking up 8-9hrs a day on my first Ae300 bulb....na..na...na............na nah!! :D :D



    .........pop!........



    sh**, what was that??..........

    Only joking, but knowing my luck I probably will be back on, saying how I shouldn't have opened my big mouth :D I dread that day because I shredded the philips head on the bulb housing screw a few months ago. I've put that worry to the back of my mind since then but inevitably, I'm going to have to get that bugger out somehow!! :D

    On a side note, the graph of the decrease in brightness of my bulb must be a perfectly smooth one, because to be honest, I haven't noticed a decrease. I suppose it will only become apparent when I eventually have to put a new bulb in in about 2-3 months and am dazzled by the new found brightness and punch of the image or somesuch.
