Dimmed? I could live with dimmed, this dumb thing is shot. (Can you sense my frustration? Not with you DG...)

I haven't bought anything from them, but they are a 5 star retailer on NexTag.

I cant’ believe you aren’t exploiting this bulb failure as an opportunity to buy a new projector…..

I got my bulb from Projectorquest. Looks like they have three different options for this lamp: from $67-$202

Reviving a 9 year old thread doesn't happen every day. LOL

I'm just surprised people are still using projectors, though i guess beyond 75" screens, that is still a requirement.
Thankfully, in part, our room is limited to 75" max or i wouldn't have anywhere to move the speakers.
Luckily most new large format LED and OLED now have the 75" range as a fairly common option at most big box stores.

Waiting on that OLED to pickup steam..come on industry competition...

An Epson 2040 plus screen will run about 1200$. Perfectly respectable performance, not reference, but pick your size in a lit room even. Lamps $99.

Once LED/lasers roll out..... Ultra short throw with laser under $2k..... Who knows?

Yeah, someday when OLED rolls out (pun intended) with "sheets" of OLED material that you can put on your wall to make virtually any size image (it is a technical possibility), I have no other choice but a projector to get my current 138" image. Outside of needing a dark room (which better simulates a theater for movie watching anyway), and when thinking of "pre-4K" technology, the projector has almost always been the cheaper way to get a really large screen too.

The biggest downfall of the future of having the ability to put a massive roll of OLED material on your wall, outside of potential cost, will be not being able to put the speakers right behind that display like you can with a screen and projector, but that image would be REALLY cool.

Then again, there is already a push for something that I saw coming years ago... Personal displays. By that, I mean headsets that you wear that simulate a massive screen. It is out there and starting to make headlines.

We'll all be living Cronenberg's Videodrome.

What's reality? Did I forget to take off the headset again?
