It has crossed my mind just to sell mine sometimes.
Big builds. Sometimes you wonder if it's worth all the hassle and headaches. So many times, I seen them get finished. Then a couple of months after go up for sell.

Yes correct.
The laser will give you sharper ,brighter picture.Will not fall of quickly like bulbs and uses less power.If bulb was not installed correctly a fire could start.Would be due to defective bulb or not correctly cleaning of projector and handling of bulb.
The laser should be good for 20,000 to 30,000Hrs depending on model.
So at 40hrs a week would be 10 to 14 years of use.

The thought has crossed my mind. People won't let you just enjoy them. It's a pain in the azz.

Buy the way, it is people that are the hassle. The build wasn't that bad.

The good thing is nobody cares about a moron's opinion on the internet. Dont even give them the time of day, not worth it.
As you have stated many times, the build is for you, you owe nothing to anyone else. hope you driving the wheels off the thing.

We switched to laser projectors at work and they are niiiice. My old Epson 1080p projector keeps chugging along though and hard to justify replacing it until it croaks.

Every big build has problems.Gets frustrating when you already have a ton of money into it and have to spend more for the unexpected.
You just live and breathe it for a couple of years.Every night and weekend in shop.You have to be focused and trudge on.Takes a certain type of person.
Not for the casual person who has no idea what their getting into.

So for people who make smart *** comments have they done a build or just done a few minor mods.

I've done a couple of builds in my earlier years. Almost cost me my marriage, almost filing for bankruptcy. Pissed off a lot of friends. Being in the rabbit hole so deep, that I popped out the other side. Then got sucked back in.

Some people call it crazy.I call it focused.

I’m being very cautious & not wanting to begin until I have some needed things in order

I have done a few myself besides my latest. It was much easier before. Nobody was the wiser. Only a select few knew what you were up to. I lost a fiancé from one. That was a blessing.
