My last Runco VX-101-cx bulb lasted just 404 hours (out of expected ~1500 hours) The tech told me that a power surge could have zapped it or that perhaps I wasn't making sure it was completely cooled down before starting the projector back up. Given that the unit retailed for $15,000 several years back and has already had the power supply rebuilt twice, I'm also disappointed, to say the least. I only watch about 100 movies/yr. on it MAX.
