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.
This is the 3rd light I have had to buy because we use our projector like a TV - every day for multiple hours a day. The first two lights I bought the $29.00 version and they last about 8 to 10 months so I decided to buy this which was advertised as OE replacement and the cost was $89.00. Well, guess what, 8 months and it too has gone out, so I bought another cheap one and bought a free 3-year replacement warranty for $4.99 - DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO THIS!! The product works well and is bright, but do not pay $89 and expect it to last any longer than the less expensive version or be any brighter
The quality was much better in the beginning, ut colors weren't as bright and images not as clear after 7 months. I purchased this February 27, 2020 and it just burned out today 05/12/2021. $96 for 14 months isn't a good investment when the original lasted for 5 years.
This lamp fit easily and worked great for a while. After less than a year, it went out and I got an error message saying the bulb is bad and needs to be replaced. The description says to buy this because it will last so much longer than the cheaper ones, but the original lasted me about 6 years, so 10 months isn't a really great lifespan.
I replaced the lamp the morning of Thanksgiving (looked great) and when I turned it off a few hours later, I heard a loud pop. The lamp busted inside itself and no longer works. And of course the return date for the lamp has passed, so now I’m out $90 and will have to buy another lamp.. Good luck Amazon peps!
