I just wanted to follow up for anyone else who might be seeking a genuine replacement air filter for the VPL-HW15. I was able to buy one from Sony's Supply Chain partner, Encompass for $6.49 plus S/H and sales tax. The part number is 3-875-777-01. They show it as the replacement for these models:
Of course the VPLHW15 is physically identical to the VPLHW10, even though it's not included on the list, so it may also be appropriate for some other unlisted models as well.
So no need to spend $15 on a generic replacement that has to then be cut to fit, and no concerns about damage to the projector as a result of inferior materials. By the way, you don't have to be a dealer in order to buy this filter. With respect for the forum rules, I did not include a link, but feel free to PM me if you can't find it. Or if a moderator would bless it, I could also add it to the thread.
