How expensive are replacement bulbs?
Exactly this - made the mistake once, however it looks like there is a 'bulb garuntee' somehow..

Does anyone use a projector as a primary TV? My current TV as a line of pixels that are discolored running down the side. Not a big deal since we hardly turn it on, and it's really like 1px wide or something.

Anyway Since we hardly actually use the TV I wondered about replacing it with a projector, so the family room can go without a big honkin' black screen most days. Maybe put up a nice painting and then the projector screen can come down over the painting when we want to watch something.

We also do have not-quite-blackout but room darkening curtains so we can make it sufficiently dark I figure.

Pretty much a deal killer for any 4K monitor these days...

Not that it's in my budget right now... or if I will still be married if I was to buy one...
Always nice to have an exit strategy

I have been using my BenQ projector as my primary TV for 12 years. I vary 12-13k hours per bulb (over 40k hours so far). To get the best colors you really need a blacked out room. Black /dark gray furniture, walls, ceiling curtains Ect... I remember I had a beige leather couch for the first year or two. I upgraded to a black leather dual recliner and it was like I had a new projector. Unless you have a dedicated room your probably better off replacing the TV. Also don't forget everything will be running through a receiver. Projectors don't have speakers. So you can add another 1k plus the screen, wires, cables, speaker mounts ect. to the cost.

Thanks for the info!

I'm already rockin' Onkyo speakers and receiver I bought in... probably '08 or '09. Big Grin

But it is an open floor plan leading into the kitchen which won't be dark unless it's night. So I suppose I'll have to get another regular TV instead.

So much have changed since 2006. While what you said was true and can be true with certain conditions, affordable projectors now are so much better than in most cases you don't have to do such extremes. Also, projector screen fabrics have evolved as well. You are basically 3 giant generation leaps behind. And finally, yes, some projectors do come with speakers, even stereo once (no doubt external speakers will also be better, just like with TVs).

Has anyone seen these side-by-side with a projector in the 3000 lumen range? I'm curious how well it looks in a dimly lit room. My 3200 lumen Viewsonic is bright enough, but just barely.
Which ViewSonic do you have? Most 3200 lumens projectors are hyper advertised and actually barely put out half that color brightness. I don't know why but there is a gap in the 3000 lumen range.

It depends. If the light is indirect, with a good screen it way work. Not these BenQs though. 3-4000 lumen.
