very happy Epson 5020ub owner. I've already put over 400hrs on my projector. Is there a consensus best place to buy replacement lamps/bulbs? I know I have time, but I thought it bet to ask early.

I see ebay has lots of -E type, OEM equivalent lamps for very cheap, but those make me nervous.

thanks for any insight.

I buy my original OEM lamps from here. The sell OEM originals lower than most and and also sell alternative lamps at a cheaper price and also have some good info on their Canadian site on how to spot fake lamps.

BTW I'm not affiliated with them in any way. Just a happy customer.

If you cal them at 1-866-426-5773 they will get the lamp for you, usually even if it's not listed. CDW also has your lamp http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Epson-ELPLP69-projector-lamp/2626731.aspx?enkwrd=ALLPROD%3a|ELPLP69|All%20Product%20Catalog
