Phil and I stayed up until 2:00am playing Madden. Let me phrase that, I stayed up until 2:00am WINNING Madden. I donâ€™t know what Phil was doing. He was there, and he was playing, but â€¦
Weâ€™ve had the DLP projector subbing as full-time television for over a year now and this week is the first time weâ€™ve used it for video games. This is dumb because, well, whatâ€™s not awesome about an 11-foot wide video game? Aside from the epilepsy? Problem is, I see a potentially monsterous time suck machine on the horizon. Good thing most video games are unbearably dumb.
- Question about the projector. I thought the bulbs on those thigs were ridiculously expensive and short lived. Do you have to replace it frequently? Weâ€™ve always treated Shannonâ€™s dadâ€™s Dell projector with kid gloves for that very reason. If yours isnâ€™t that fragile, what kind do you have and where can I get one?

- …the bulb issue. They generally last about 2000 hours and they cost between $200 and $300 to replace. Like I said, weâ€™ve had the projector for over a year, and we still have over half of our bulb life left (thereâ€™s a meter in the menu tree that keeps track for us). You just have to ask yourself if using a projector as your primary TV is worth a couple hundred bucks every two and a half years or so. (Ed: under $50/year? I say YES!)
We have the NEC HT410, which is an entry level home projector (read: low end). It is only 1000 lumens and it cost $600 in September 2005. I got it from tigerdirect.com. If you go there now, youâ€™ll see they have several 2000 lumen projectors for $599.
In conclusion, what are you waiting for?
