Or is there a better place that carries them cheaper online?
They have the best prices I've found for quality bulbs and I won't buy anywhere else.

Awesome! They sent me a 10%off coupon code, and I'm considering buying a second, since prices seem to be increasing.

I looked before, and putting a lamp only in the old housing is pretty standard, correct?
Is there any reason you would need to replace the housing other than convenience?

Swapping the bulb in the housing is pretty straight forward, just don't do what I did once and bounce the bulb off a concrete floor!

Use gloves when handling the bulb, as oils from your skin can cause bulb issues later.

+1 thing to remember. The last bulb I bought came with a set of cotton gloves so that was a nice reminder.

Any worries about these bulbs not being manufactured sometime in the future? I'm wondering if I should pick up a couple of bulbs.

Has anyone used picture frame wire to provide lateral support on one of these tv's? In our new place, the tv is near a stair down I'm worried about the cats jumping from the stair onto the tv and tipping it over. I didn't see any obvious anchor points on the back. Maybe someone has tied it back and had some insight.
