There are some major pluses to choosing a projector that has a laser light engine over one that operates through use of a lamp. The first was discussed on the previous page, but I think it’s worth mentioning again. This projector has a rated light engine life of up to 20,000 hours, which provides around a decade of heavy use. Talk about return on investment!
True, you’ll be paying a higher up-front cost for a laser projector, but the cost evens out over time when you consider that in the same ten year period, a lamp based projector make need to have its lamp changed up to six times. Add in the cost of having someone switch out that lamp for you, and you may even end up paying more over time than you would on your initial investment if you were to opt for that laser light engine.
The P519HL’s light engine will last a long time, of course, but will it maintain its good color for the duration of its lifespan? The answer varies from projector to projector, but in the case of projectors with laser light engines, you can generally expect to see steady color and brightness, with slight shifting starting at around the halfway or later mark of its lifespan. This happens with lamp based projectors, too, but in their case, the color shift and dimming after about one thousand hours or so, give or take.
