Excerpt: I've owned my Panasonic PT AX200U Projector since 2008 with an original bulb that lasted well over 3,000 hours, and after it finally needed to be replaced I purchased an OEM bulb. It was a higher end OEM but it wasn't nearly as bright and dimmed over time, however in the area I was using the bulb it needed that extra something that my original lamp had. After replacing the OEM lamp with another OEM brand I began to see a trend.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Great picture quality, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: It is actually made by Panasonic and it's genuine. Returned my projector to "like new" brightness. My only complaint is the cost (thus minus one star). It is about three times to cost of a generic OEM-equivalent bulb from other sellers.
Excerpt: After reading all the issues with third party lamps and not willing to deal with a 50% return rate, I bought this authentic Panasonic lamp through B&H. For one B&H has been very reliable and the Panasonic lamp includes a new filter as well. It was easy to install and has worked very well so far.
Excerpt: Yes, this is the real OEM Panasonic lamp. Be VERY cautious when shopping for the OEM lamp since about 95% of the lamps on the 'net are fakes. Some sellers of such fakes are honest about that fact and the fair price for such an "OEM replacement" lamp is[$]. I'd give B&H 5 stars except the [$] for this original lamp is so high.
Excerpt: I received the lamp in a timely manner. The packaging was well done. The inside package was the original Panasonic package for the ETLAX100. The lamp packaging is well done and provides great protection for the lamp. The instructions that came with the lamp were clear and easy to follow. I replaced the lamp with relative ease. The projector is back to original condition - great picture.
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding, Lightweight, Secure
Excerpt: This is a factory original replacement lamp. Not one of those cheaper knock offs that are all over the web. Came with a replacement air filter as well. Significant brightness improvement over my old lamp which was at 1850 hours. Packaged nicely and arrived promptly. Great buying experience.
Pros: Brighter Image, Easy To Set Up, Factory Original, Good Padding
Excerpt: I needed a replacement lamp from someone I felt offered authentic factory parts. I read the B&H customer reviews and being satisfied I called. I'm very pleased with the courteous service and fast shipping I received from them. The lamp arrived in a couple of days (double boxed), I installed it in about 10 min. and now I have a bright, sharp beautiful picture again. There are replicas out there but I wouldn't order anything other than this part in the future.
Pros: Brighter Image, Competitive Price, Easy To Set Up, Good Padding
Excerpt: I needed a replacement lamp, and while it is pricier than the knock-offs, it's been working just fine without worry. My projector feels brand new again : *) Came in quick, with instructions to change it out. Just what I needed, thanks!
