My HC6100 Lamp is almost dead. I thought this lamp was retailing at $175 brand new from epson or so I thought when I bought that this was one of the cheaper lamps around. Looks like Epson wants $250 now (or has always wanted that).

Are lamps just like camera batteries where most of them are faked? I see the same bulb, genuine, with hundreds of poistive feedbacks about the same item, on e-auction for $100 less...

Is this the same as it always is, "buy genuine or pay the price later?" or have any of you bought from an auction site?

I bought a lamp off Ebay for my 6100 about 8 months ago for about $210 but it was an OEM lamp. Make shure it has an epson warrenty with an epson serial #. I would never buy a generic lamp to save a $100 its not worth the gamble.

Smart enough to know better, to old to care

Much appreciated reply. I'll try and find an OEM one, for sure. Or just buy from a store.
