To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The bulb that I replaced was original to the projector and failed at 1452 hrs, which I may have contributed to by not noticing that above an elevation of 4500 ft the settings needed to be adjusted to high altitude so that the projector fan runs constantly. We are at about 5000 ft and so the bulb may have over heated...I did read one review on the bulb/projector and the reviewer suggested setting the projector for high altitude regardless of the true elevation, and I would consider that to be sound advice. The replacement bulb ordered from EWO'S was $ cheaper than EPSON and arrived when promised and in great shape. The change-out literally took less than five minutes. I will monitor my usage hours this time and look to purchase a backup bulb at about 1500 hrs. Thanks EWO'S for the fair price and the great customer service!
When shopping for replacement projector lamps, it's often hard to distinguish authentic branded products from lower cost knock-offs. While I don't have experience with the latter category and can't confidently state that authentic lamps work longer, I decided to take no chances with an lower cost knock-offs replacement lamp. If authentic is what you are looking for, this is the place to buy. Also, it arrived really quickly. Can't comment on longevity, but after 2 months of moderate usage, it's going strong. A good buy!
Buying a new projector lamp can be a dangerous undertaking, given the expense involved. many outlets sell lamps compatible with your projector at very low prices, though the low price comes with a risk, being that the lamp is not one of quality, is not as bright as it should be, etc. The lamp received from EWO'S was a great replacement product, installed in seconds and has brought my viewing back to full brightness. Remember, you get what you pay for. Shipping was also very fast and received very quickly. Highly recommend.
My last lamp lasted 2205 hours, which I was very happy about. For my screen setup I use the lamp on the 'family room' setting, as 'dynamic' doesn't seem to be any different for my room and the bulb life is less on dynamic mode. they shipped it out same day. I received the very next day by noon (as I specified next day shipping). A+ service and product. Highly recommended. Don't waste your time with imitations, it will cost you much more in the long run.
I tried to save money and bought an off-brand lamp for my projector. It was a bad mistake, yeah I saved money but the image wasn't nearly as bright and there was a flicker to the screen. I ended up purchasing this lamp and am thrilled about the result. The brightness is just as good as the original lamp and there is a nice smooth image. I will spend a little more for a replacement lamp to get better quality now.
There are a lot of off brand substitutes out there for much less. However, I've seen mixed reviews regarding the quality. I spent a lot of money to get a quality projector. It seems like a waste to then put a second rate lamp into it. So I chose this genuine Epson replacement lamp, and I am very happy with it.
Bought this to replace original lamp that had burned out. So far everything works great. I readjusted the focus on my screen and I have a beautiful picture in High Definition. I reset the projector's lamp timer so I can track the number of lamp hours used. Installation was very easy; all I needed was a small phillips screwdriver.
