Runco QuantumColor Q-650i LED-DLP Projector

The Runco Q-650i employs the same PhlatLight LEDs from Luminus Devices as Runco’s $15,000 Q-750i, which we reviewed in September 2010. Runco calls its application of this technology InfiniLight, and claimed a useful LED lifetime of 60,000 hours for that projector, with a brightness decrease of perhaps as little as 10 percent, even at the end. Because the Q-650i uses the same technology, I would expect its LED longevity to be similar. While that may be a bit optimistic, it’s nevertheless likely you’ll be ready for a new projector long before the Q-650i’s LEDs show any significant deterioration.
