Excerpt: I've only used it for about 20 hours so far but it is the same as my original bulb that went for 2000+ hours. Easy to install and I appreciated that it came with a replacement air filter as well.
Excerpt: This is my second review on this bulb. The bulb that came with my projector lasted about 1,950 hours. It started a horrible flicker at 1,400 to 1,500 hours by 1,900 it was dimming horribly. So I bought a replacement from B&H a few years ago.

Excerpt: If you have ever bought and installed a lamp in your projector you know the value of buying the lamp made by the manfacturer of your projector. The quality is great and you only have to see the brightness of the picture to see this.
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding, Lightweight, Secure
Excerpt: I watch TV using a projector. I read reviews of projector bulbs that were too dim or did not work purchased on auction sites and other sites for 1/4 the cost. Everyone ended up buying real Panasonic OEM, NOT OEM Equivalent, or Generic OEM.
