Being new to the motion fixture world I am going to ask a question that I am sure has been asked many times before, however, please bear with me. I know the MSD250/2 lamp has a life of sever thousand hours but what is the real life at "full or near full" intensity. I have been told 200 hours is about it. Any comments please. Thanks...

    I tend to replace them at somewhere around 1000 to 1200 hours b/c the last half of that 2000 hours usually looks unacceptably bad in comparison to newer lamps.

    Hope this helps:)

    Marty hit it on the head.:headbang: After 1200 hours they go into half life and start to really degrade in light quality.
