Excerpt: Have always bought OEM Epson replacement lamps for my 6500UB projector. Picture and brightness are like new after replacement lamp is installed. Lamp usually last at least 2000 hours. Still works after 2000 hours but you will notice the brightness gradually fading and picture getting dimmer.
Excerpt: I didn't realize how much light I was missing until after I had to replace the lamp with this OEM part. Impressed again with my Epson 8350 Home Cinema Projector! Only gave 4 stars because of price. Too dang expensive for just a lamp!
Excerpt: I needed a replacement lamp for my projector. This one was the precise model. It arrived promptly and was easy to install. The picture quality is excellent. I always check B&H Photo/Video before buying anywhere else because their reputation for professional service is unmatched.
Excerpt: After having tried several 3rd party "El Cheapo" lamps and having them either fail right away or be extremely dim, I felt I just had to bite the bullet and order the more expensive genuine Epson lamp. And what a huge difference! Totally worth it.
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding, Quality Built
Excerpt: I just installed the fourth bulb in my 8700UB projector. The first bulb got about 1100 hours before burning out, the second about 1000 hours, and the third 614. This is nowhere close to the 4000 hour lifespan that Epson advertises.
Excerpt: This is OEM. Buy OEM. Sure, I paid a little more because it has Epson's name on it, but this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for. A quick search online is all you need to do to see why. B&H had the lowest price I could find. Shipping was very fast--two days, and it was FREE!
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding
Excerpt: Genuine Epson bulbs are brighter than the cheap knock-offs. However, don't expect to get anywhere near the rated hours. I guess maybe you could achieve that lifetime in the low power ECO mode and running continuously.
Excerpt: After burning through two after market lamps for my Epson 8100 (each lasting less than 700 hours), I decided to spring for an original Epson lamp.I could not believe what a difference it made.I have a 90" wide screen on a wall of my family room.
