1060's, which we operate at the econo setting, however even at low
we only get about 12-14 months use out of a bulb and they cost about
each. When we last replaced bulbs, we used an allocation that allowed
us to buy nine.... <br>
Aside from that we are very happy with the NEC projectors. <br>

<pre wrap="">No bulb replacements?! Wow. Our Epsons require new bulbs about once a year.
Considering their expense (£300 / $500ish for each bulb), this is quite a
problem. Is it just the Epsons that need so many new bulbs or is it that we
just use them more than you...?
Some projectors have lamp-output controls, so you can run them in
less-bright-but-longer-life mode. Anybody use those?
We have a pair of JVC G150CL's (not being used in an AG, but who cares)
whose rated bulb life is 1000 hours in "normal" mode, and 1900 hours in
"lamp output control" mode when set to minimum brightness,
which is still quite bright.
