Hi, I noticed that Electronics Expo sells an replacement bulb for my Epson 8100 at about half the price. I contacted them and they said it is OEM and has a 1 year warranty from Epson. Has anyone ordered from them? Is it really OEM? Thanks for the help!

After not getting any responses, I guess I will be the guinea pig. I ordered a lamp from Electronics Expo based on their email that it is OEM and has a year warranty. Will let you know if it is legit and how it performs. I just hope I didn't pay for a POS that lasts a week.

Any feedback you can share with us yet?

Edit: Looks like we both had replacement bulbs go out on our Epson HC 8100s shortly after the PJ's 2 year warranty was up. Sucks. Something about this PJ and these bulbs does not seem to last.
