The service life of lamps of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,300h.
Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)
Across all the 2400:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD5253 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 6,000h. The PJD5253 has one of the longest service life of lamp (economic mode)s (6,000 hours) amongst 2400:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.
