Yeah that stinks...How is the rest of the house?
I have always wanted backups & I do have them now for everything but the projector. I tried twice & was lied too about the hours once (Hardly used was over 850 hours) Dust came pouring out when I checked the filter (not just a little). The young lady was upset with me when I knew how to get the hours off the projector....get that.
I would worry about a fire but that is me lol. Even down the road the unit might burn IMO.
As far as the GFI they are loaded with problems but it is better than having your hair standing straight up.
I am cheap & still use or this year try to use my 2008 gear so I feel your pain.
So it is a tough call...new is nice if you have the money but I am very happy with what I have &&&& I want a boat someday.
[/Sorry for this Randy LOL but I think in forums like this & the others that I am in we tend to get caught in a feeding frenzy on each forum.color] If I am on the cooking forum it is so easy to get caught up in a person getting a new cooker. But in life we have needs & wants. The needs come first......Ok throw your stones at me folks. I think on one cooking forum a guy had a barn with over a 100 grills, smokers, etc etc.
Ok off my soap box in your case there is nothing wrong with new & maybe the old projector as an (outside) backup.
