Hi Guys

My Panasonic projector bulb now has 2500 hours on it. Wow, 2500 hours in almost 5 years. Not bad (I think). Hmmm, that means I have wasted 2500 hours in my HT room over the past 5 years. Sounds awful when I put it that way. Kidding aside, I loved every minute of those 2500 hours.

Anyways, question is, do I wait for the bulb to burn out (blow) or do I be proactive and replace it before that happens. If it burns/blows out, will it damage the projector?

I have a replacement bulb here.

You advise is appreciated.
