I have also thought about hooking up a projector to my PC.

In 1999 I bought a Compaq MP1600. It was a very early serial number in the production series. Its bulb burned out last week after many hundreds of hours of use, some 10 minute presentations, some week long classes with the projector going on/off many times during the class and some several hour viewing sessions (you can feed the projector with a composite or s-video source too ... so Olympic snowboarding can take up the entire living room wall :)

Anyone whose bulb burns out after 20 hours or less of use has apparently either touched the bulb with bare skin, transfering oils to it or abused it some other way.

You do need to know that the bulbs are not cheap though.
