Be careful with cheap lamps. They are often made in China and do not have the same brightness as OEM lamps. For example when I bought my lamp Buy.com sold two lamps for my projector. One was described as "OEM replacement" and the other as "OEM". The OEM replacement was made buy a company in China and the OEM by Mitsubishi who makes the projector I have. The OEM cost about $30 more than the fake lamp but it's worth it to me.
Thanks for the tip. I bought oem for the z2 so I would agree. I think the epson home cinema 720 has that new bulb that is sold even by epson at 200. I think i am jumping ship and heading that direction for my next buy.
