I need to replace the bulb on my Epson 8100 (Model #V11H336120) projector and it seems that everywhere I look there are a lot of bait and switch tactics being employed. Where is the most reliable and economical place to purchase an OEM Epson ELPLP49 bulb?
My 1080UB came with a spare,
so the 3rd lamp that I just installed recently was my first from PLS.
Just under 400 hours so far.
The lamp I received from them was not 100 % identical to my original, (Very close though)
But neither was the spare I got from Epson. The PLS lamp did match the spare though.
My original and my spare both lasted 3k hours.
You can find a negative post or two on almost any product,
But you should really look beyond One persons experience.
4.47 / 5 rating based on 30 reviews at projector central:
Unfortunately, it is not, but thanks for the post.
Is it me or does everyone have a problem with paying for something that's rated at 4,000 hours but doesn't come with a warranty to match? I mean, why not rate it for 10,000 hours. Seems silly to have an hourly rating, but a time based warranty, especially when paying this much for a bulb.
