Mitsubishi HC7800D Special Features

HC7800D Lamp Life

Click to enlarge. SO close

The Mitsubishi HC7800’s lamp life is rated 5,000 hours in low power mode.  That’s about as good as it gets with home theater projectors.

The HC7800, however is only rated a standard 2000 hours at full power. That’s what we have called average until recently, but now the average at full power is a bit higher. Bottom line on lamp life: If you can run the HC7800 mostly in low power (eco-mode), you will have a significantly quieter projector and a very low cost of operation. At full power, though, all of the competition claims to get at least the same 2000 hour lamp life, and some claim twice the hours, which means those others will have lower long term costs.

1.5:1 Zoom Lens

The manual 1.5:1 lens provides very good placement range, more than is typically found in less expensive DLP projectors, and at the shorter range of the LCoS and LCD projectors which mostly have 1.5:1 up to 2.1:1.
