I literally can't count the number of bulbs I've purchased over the last 15 years. I also don't care about 3D, but I know a lot of people do. I think the 12000 is gonna be a home run for those who specifically want laser illumination and don't care about 3D.
The 9300 is still a rock solid choice also. It'll be nice to have options, if you're willing to spend the extra $.
True mate, more options the better. We need competition in the projection space.
