Casio America has announced their new Extra Value Warranty Program for their LampFree™ projectors. The purchase program offers a one or two-year extension (up to a total of five years total). This new extended warranty is available for purchase prior t the original warranty expiration, and applies to the Signature, Short Throw, SLIM and Pro series models.
Casio’s original warranty program offered three years parts and labor coverage and several of the models offered a warranty on the LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source for up to five years or 10,000 hours. Depending on which option the consumer chooses, the Extra Value Warranty extends the standard parts & labor coverage for up to two additional years after the standard warranty ends.
For consumers who use Casio’s LampFree™ projectors frequently – ten hours per day for five or more days per week – Casio is also offering Extended Use Applications. The standard light source warranty is one year or 6,000 hours, but with the Extended Use Application, consumers can purchase a two year Light Source extended warranty, which will provide three years parts and labor and three years or 15,000 hours on the light source. The extended warranty prices range from $100.00 to $360.00.
Analyst firm PMA Research has been following the Laser/LED, or lamp-free projection market for several years now. These units continue to grow in popularity because of their low TCO and “greenness” factor, which are factors important to end-users.
