    After using my BenQ MP720p XGA projector for about 20 hours, it fell
    from the ceiling attachment and broke. The lamp still worked after it
    fell but it didn't project an imgae through the lens.

    I've had it shipped to a BenQ service center in Germany, and they
    told me that the following need to be repaired:

    Upper Case, Lower Cover, Mainboard, and Light Pipe Module, and
    "Pauschale" need to be repaired. With work the total comes to $585. I
    bought the projector for $1000.

    BenQ in the US can't tell me anything without having the projector.
    What do you think, is it worth being repaired? Should I just purchase
    another projector?

    Thank you,

    You have to ask yourself if you can get an equivalent projector for not
    too much more. If you can, seriously consider going new. Once broken,
    it's hard to completely trust a repair. (Something may have been missed.)

    If they were giving you a new lamp for the $585, I would probably go
    ahead. If they are giving you the old lamp back, even tho it only has
    20 hours on it, I would probably get a new unit unless BENQ gave you
    some sort of warranty.
