Personal Experience
Once again a good product from sony
Lamp well out last it's life span

...I had an external fan (just a regular small fan/$ 10.00 CAN) to help keeping it cool giving me a 5 years and just under 4000 hrs of trouble free view.

Problems
Not HD ready.

It requiers a pitch-black room for a good image.

No ceiling mount makes it hard to be used as a home device

The remote stoped working after a couple of years (?)

Now that the lamp has finally "gone to a better place" I find it much to high of a price for a replacement ($ 350.00 CAN)
