The ThinkVision Projector Lamp for the E500 Projector features a 200W lamp (1600 lumens output).

1 Lamp life is a measure of brightness degradation only and is not a specification for the time it takes a lamp to fail and cease light output. Lamp life is defined as the time it takes for more than 50% of a lamp sample population to have brightness decrease by approximately 50% of the rated lumens for the specified lamp. For example, if the defined life of a sample set of lamps is 2,000 hours and their brightness is rated at 1100 lumens, then after 2,000 hours 50% of the lamps will still be brighter than 550 lumens.

Key prerequisites

The ThinkVision E500 Projector is supported on ThinkPad and ThinkCentre systems and other PCs capable of conforming to VESA standard modes.
