Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PHILIPS UHP/DLP BULB ONLY W/O HOUSING (Electronics)now I know what I've been missing... since the lamp slowly dims over time, it's hard to tell when is a good time to replace the bulb (well mine finally died about 3 years and 3 days after I placed the order (as I had some sign things were happening). Whoa the picture is so much brighter.
Putting the bulb into the existing box isn't too hard - just don't touch the bulb wiht your fingers - and I like that it's less trash and cheaper as well.
been 2 months and so far so good. hopefully it will last me a few years... my color wheel went out 6 months before - guess I should have changed both at the same time. Oh well.
[...] it's not a cheap bulb, but I know it's a real philipps and is cheaper than anywhere else, and much cheaper than the $400 I was quoted back when I bought the tv (well my labor is free :)
