The first 2 were TX-542 models, one regular, and one 3D. Each started showing stuck pixels after one year, once the warranty ran out. The first one I thought was maybe jarred during our move to a new house, or dust from pets. So I got the same model to replace it. That one had the same thing happen, same time frame. Reviews online revealed others had the same issue.
I replaced the second one with a DH-1011, having read good reviews about this model. I was very happy with the picture quality and especially the brightness. With less than 25% of the bulb hours used, though, it stopped working. It would flash the bulb indicator after 5 minutes of trying to start, even with a brand new bulb in it. Optoma Support, though knowledgeable and friendly, have very few options to offer, and that's the real problem.
Optoma OEM bulb replacements are around half the cost of a new projector. The first thing tech support needs you to do in order to troubleshoot is purchase one of these, and if that doesn't work you need to shell out over $100 more send it in for diagnostics. So for the cost of troubleshooting, to see if it is a problem that can even be fixed, maybe for a few hundred more, you can buy a new projector. Sadly, this is in part why I bought projectors #2 and 3, but no more. I am going with a different brand and suggest everyone wanting to get more than 18 months out of your purchase do the same.Read more ›
