Hey HT folks! Awesome news, I just found out from my realtor that my offer on a new house (with a very HT appropriate light controllable room) has been accepted. If all goes well I'll be closing in March and you best believe I plan to be installing my gear before April! Exciting times, no doubt. I've been researching extensively on the forums for months now, doing a lot of lurking about and reading. I'm pretty darn sure I want to go with a Z1, for a number of reasons. Mostly it's that I can see rainbow effect, and so can my wife, on DLP's we've checked out. Also I'm 100% DVD (we don't even have cable, and have no interest in TV or HDTV) so the 16:9 aspect will work well for me. I'm somewhat concerned, however, that there are no official published figures I can find from Sanyo on bulb life for the Z1, and that I've seen here and elsewhere on the web people talking about bulb failures as soon as 600 hours. That would be sort of horrifying for me, given that I'm pushing my budget as is. Anyone have any thoughts on or experiences with this? Believe me, I will baby this thing, keep it in a well cooled space, mount it right, and clean its air filter religiously. Should I be concerned? Typical use for me might be two hours every other night and several hours a day on weekends, we pretty much live on Netflix and public radio for entertainment. Should I be relegating most movie watching to my WEGA in the den and only using the projector for special events? That seems kinda lame... Thanks in advance for advice!
