Wishing now that I had seen these comments before purchasing the 8100 in July of 2010. It's now Nov. 2011 and I just installed my second replacement bulb.

I had purchased through Best Buy (with a protection plan), so their Geek Squad replaced the first, and this time around they overnighted one to me. Projector showed 2119 hours, but I don't know if the Geek Squad reset it after the first one blew. Judging from the comments below I'd bet not (e.g. around 1000 hours per bulb).

Best Buy's service protection plan has a "no lemon" policy, which says that on the 4th repair you can return for a refund or credit. Two more bulbs to blow, and this sucker's going back.
