Warantees and Expectations,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung BP96-01472A Replacement Lamp w/Housing 6,000 Hour Life & 1 Year Warranty (Camera)
When one pays extra for a bulb with a life expectancy of 6000 hours and a 1 year warranty, it is reasonable to expect that bulb to last more than 3 weeks. The bulb is being replaced, but it has cost me return shipping charges, a tv repair service call to make sure it was the bulb and not the TV that was the problem, and more than a week of inconvenience. The warrantee has no value, if the product is a poor quality brand X (unidentified) knock off. I will update this review if the replacement bulb has the same life span issues as the original purchase.

I see on samsung website, that if the bulb needs frequent replacing, that it might be a ballast that has died. They recommend replacing both the ballast and the bulb at the same time

Returned mine, made TV dark. Must be old stock. I put back old lamp and live with the white spots.
