Sheridan,

You seem to be the man to go to if one needs parts. I have a BenQ PB8240 that split a color wheel into 3 pieces. I have already removed the wheel and feel confident that I can install a new one.

Can you please tell me if the part is available, how much it is to include shipping to 72653, and about how long it will take to reach me. I am trying to decide if it is worth it to install the wheel and another bulb in it or buy a new projector.

Having a projector is nice, however the expense of bulb changing and parts is not. The unit I use now was a replacement for another warranted BenQ unit that's bulb exploded...is this just a BenQ thing? I've had the replacement for four years now.

I have been looking at the Mitsubishi HC3800. It only has 1300 lumens versus the 2500 my BenQ has; it seems that it will be much dimmer than mine but I do have good light control in the room...why are the new projectors so dim in their lumens? The HC3800 is also another DLP which means it too will blow the color wheel in the future. The HC3800 does have a 6 part wheel versus the 4 segmented wheel of mine. It also has double the contrast at 4000 and is a 1080p...will I see that much of a difference?

I have been contemplating a LCD too but they seem as unreliable as the DLP because of the heat...doesn't seem to be a way to get a reliable product that one doesn't have to wonder when it will blow up. Any help/advice is appreciated. Lee

You're in luck. My supplier doesn't list any parts for several BenQ models, but they do list a color wheel for yours. It is $115, shipping averages about $15 for UPS Ground. It is listed as being in stock, so if I ordered it Monday, I would have it by Friday to ship to you. It would need to be prepaid for me to order it, I accept Paypal. If you are interested, let me have your email.

Color wheels separating is not unique to any one manufacturer. I've replaced a bunch on some Infocus and Optoma models.

Manufacturers have projectors at every level of lumen output. The higher contrast ratios yield better, deeper images. How much of a difference you will see depends on your environment. Having really good contrast ratio means little if there is a lot of light washing the screen. A projector with a low contrast ratio in a totally dark room will look better than one with a high contrast ratio in a room with lights on and the sun shining through the windows. Environment control is everything.
