Acer projector user experience

I used to be a happy owner of the Acer DLP P5260 projector. I had to change this state recently, because firstly the Lamp started to flicker after 500hours of operation in Eco mode (10% of the claimed lifetime) and currently, day after day more and more dead pixels appear on the screen. Currently I have <1000 Hours of operation and the screen looks like attached (same amount of the black pixels can be found as well). I find it totally unsatisfactory as the DMD chip replacement is worth the price of the new projector!
My device is operated in static conditions hang on the ceiling, room temperature. So totally standard conditions, yet the Acer device malfunctioned so drastically after such a short time! It's really unpleasant, even more in the time of the Olympic games.
I'm want to warn the potential Acer customers about these covered facts of the Acer products. I hope this will force them to improve the quality of the products.
