Projector Lamp?

I have someone trying to sell me a GT1080Darbee projector for about 180. He says there is a new bulb in it. I think he might have reset it just to say it was new. Is the GT1080Darbee bulb and the GT1080 bulb the same? Are they different? Where to buy a genuine lamp but at the best price?

While I don't know about Optoma, the used Sony I just shipped out had an advanced service menu you could unlock which not just showed the hours on the lamp clocked, but the total hours the PJ has on it and when the lamp counter was reset. That would tell ya what the true story is.
Try some of these out perhaps: https://factory-reset.com/wiki/Optoma_Service_Menu

I am having trouble finding the bulb? Many sites do not have it. Is this the bulb BL-FP195B?

Yup. And personally, I would only buy it from Optoma or an authorized reseller. Don't go aftermarket when it comes to lamps.
