Bummer. Epson MovieMate 85HD purchased 8/29/2012. Never had an issue. Didn't even last long enough to change the lamp. Repair estimate $801. Purchase price $770.
Epson offered some "customer loyalty" discounts, but I'm not enthused. What's the point of being loyal to a brand that cannot be repaired for less than the price of new?
Any recommendations of a quality brand that lasts and can be fixed by the manufacturer for less than new? My MacBook Air is a late 2010 unit, I use it daily, it's repairable and has been repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new one.
Is there an "Apple" of the projector world?
Thanks for your suggestions.
