    Calibos,

    I'm a little skeptical about some of the long lamp life’s quoted.
    Have you noticed any deterioration in the intensity or the colour balance?
    Doesn't this PJ have a quoted life of around 3000-4000 Hrs?

    The lamp life is quoted at 2000hrs with the lamp on full power and 5000 in Eco-mode which is what most people including myself use. No deterioration as yet. Fingers crossed!

    Holy Moley !


    I think I've figured it out, Calibos - you haven't switched the darn thing off since you've got it !

    Seriously, this gives the rest of us some hope of longevity (at least until upgrade time).

    Out of curiousity, Where did you buy it - they're not exactly common here in Ireland......

    I took my AE100 in for repair at 1040 hours but it was still working. It was just a colour uniformity problem.

    I just got a May 2002 model as a replacement after waiting 12 weeks for a repair to be done on my Dec 2001 model.
