The 2nd Bulb I got a awhile back from the projector people...a Sony OEM...has started showing signs of flickering. Not all the time but here and there. I kept my first bulb as a back-up, popped that in, dropped to low setting and haven't seen it. That Bulb however has I know 4800+ hours on it so it's a matter of time I need another.
I was wanting to know about other bulbs/lamps....like ones I see with "Genuine Philips UHP Bulbs" and others I see from various outfits. On Amazon I see reviews ranging looks good, brighter, didn't last long, a bit dimmer....of course the catch is they're like half the cost which sort of goes with the saying, "if the price is too good to be true, then probably is"...but they say it's a Philips and surely they cannot be all that crappy. has anyone tried these and what 's their overall opinion or has heard other owners with other projectors?
