LED Projectors, any users ?
I'd like to have a projector, many LCD projection units have great quality and affordable..
EXCEPT for Lamp Replacement, prices of $200+ are not unheard of..
So I'm looking for one with a LED lamp..
There are a few for sale on e-bay,
very few units at other sites with reviews from those who sound qualified
Newegg has a unit with 100 lumens, I'm afraid that more is needed for lighted rooms

Yeah that's the challenge. Finding a good projector that doesn't have outrageous bulbs (and really, the bulb thing is such a rip off, like inkjet cartridges).
On ebay, there is the DG-737 which has all kinds of connections and options, and the bulbs are $30. Here's a link;
New DG-737 HD Video Game Movie LCD Projector 4 DVD Wii - eBay (item 290496914719 end time Jan-04-11 23:39:38 PST)
But, there is a reason it's only $200. It's not a high end projector. You're not going to get the image quality, and even then it's better than 100 lumens but the seller says not for presentations as it doesn't do well in lighted rooms.
On the other hand, the best price I've found for bulbs on a commercially available projector is $99.
The Epson EX5200 is a good projector with fairly reasonable bulb life and price (3000-4000 hours at $99 each). In my recent searches (I'm in the market for a projector), it's either the Epson or go with the ultra cheap import referenced above. LED, DLP, whatever... across the board that's the best I've found so far.

I'm really interested only in LED projectors.
E-Bay has some with respectable "specs" yeah right, I BELIEVE THEM ALL...
The Tungsten Lamps have life spans of 3000 hrs or so, more or less.. That's only 6 months at 16 hrs a day..

Why are you putting so much time on them?
Maybe you should be in the market for a better one with all the brightness and sharpness you need, and just accept the price of bulbs. Can you expense them out to someone?
If you aren't, you need to somehow recoup your costs as part of the cost of doing business. What ever that is...Obama doesn't need an "enemies list"... He sees half the country as his enemy.

I've got a pal with a business, TV Doctor and he gets a ton of business replacing the "back-lights" on LCD TV's.
As in LCD monitors, the fluorescent back-light has limited life, unlike LED's.
Plasma TV's also have problems so I wish to go with LED's however it turns out.
hope this helps

I have yet to see an LED projector that had an acceptable light output (but I have been using DLP projectors my home theater for about 4 years). My current projector is an Epson EP719 (considered business class) with 2200 lumens. Even with that, exceptionally dark movies are hard to see with ambient light (I should say the dark details don't show up as well as I would hope).
If you do get an LED projector, do not have very high hopes for lighted conditions. Just my $0.02.I don't like signatures.
