We have NEC 1060's, which we operate at the econo setting, however even 
at low output we only get about 12-14 months use out of a bulb and they 
cost about $700 each. When we last replaced bulbs, we used an allocation 
that allowed us to buy nine....

Aside from that we are very happy with the NEC projectors.
