I did this last year, and replaced a burned out Sony VPL-VW10HT bulb (best new price $441) with a re-built bulb for which I paid $269, not including shipping. It lasted a whole 457 hours before exploding. 60% of the cost of a new bulb, but less than 25% of the expected lifetime. Luckily, my new VW60 arrived shortly after the burn-out...so I'm a happy camper again!
