When Good Projectors Go Bad

“A new bulb is how much?” I hear that phrase often, and I always cringe.  With projector lamps costing $400 or more, people sometimes get sticker shock and experience a sense of disappointment when their “2000 Hour” lamp fails after 800-900 hours, and when it’s not a warranty issue. 

Lamp warranties are often 90 days.  Why 90 days?  I’m not sure, but my guess is that if you leave a projector on for 90 days at 24 hours per day, you get to that 2000 hour level just short of 90 days.  There are lots of other factors that affect lamp life like voltage issues, power spikes, dirty air filters, improper power-down, etc. 

Whatever the case, lamps are an expense that many people don’t consider when buying a projector.  On average, we notice that churches often buy a lamp every couple years and 2-3 over the life of each projector.  If you could extend that lamp life by 40%, those three lamps at $400 each become two at $400 each, and you save $400.  If you could save $400 by spending less than $200, would you? You should. 

The Furman AC-215 will allow you to do just that by conditioning the electrical power supplying each of your projectors (and thus protecting your investment in technology) for just $199.95.  For those who use projectors more than average, your savings will be even greater and the Furman AC-215 can be used on subsequent machines, even after you upgrade from your current projector to the next one.
