          Comments about Sony Lamp for VPL-HS51 Projector:

          My last lamp lasted 2650 hours. Spent a little extra and got genuine Sony replacement. Like others, have had problems in TVs with generic replacements. Quick ship from B+H, it was easy to replace. Back up and running with a new brilliance. Hardest part of the install was remembering how to get it down from the ceiling mount! Resetting the lamp hours took 2 tries. Suggest you replace your air filter at the same time!

                I looked several places to find the original oem lamp, and found other places that offer a lamp with the same model no., but its not the oem lamp (usually priced under 200). Frustrated, i went with this option. It arrived in a sony labeled box, and works fine with the projector. I gave it 4 stars, because if you review this lamp, you will find that there are a lot of people with this unit that have had to replace the lamp at around 700 hrs. I think sony should take care of their customers on this matter. My experience was that mine blew at 752 hrs. This only reinforces my opinion that sony has a R&D issue reguarding this projector, and should be offering a better solution than having us spend several hundred dollars to most likely get a bulb that wont last. I will be replacing this unit soon with an Epson.

                  We've had our 51a for about 5 years and tried a knock-off lamp for a recent replacement. I will not be doing that again. First Sony lamp went 4,500+ hrs, second Sony another 4,000+ hrs, while the knockoff blew in 1,410 hrs.

                  Back to Sony OEM and this was the best price I could find online that also stocked the filter.

                  Not sure I am going with Sony on my next projector, but that has to do with 'blue smear' issues.

                    I replaced the old lamp without difficulty. The only problem I have had is resetting the timer so that the projector knows the lamp has been changed.

                                This replacement bulb brings new life to the projector. Although it doesn't seem to be quite as bright as the original it is a drastic improvement over the old, dimming bulb.

                                This is my third replacement bulb and projector is near new again.

                                      Everything worked out great. I have a couple of pointers to help reduce frustration for other customers. 1st, make sure that you have the manual near by since it has specific instructions on how to replace this lamp. 2nd, the original projector remote is required to reset the projector lamp and most people do not use this remote on a daily basis, so check/replace the batteries in the remote before trying to reset the lamp message. When I did it, the remote still sent commands to the projector, but they were not strong enough to submit the sequence of commands to reset it.

                                      Overall, glad I spent the extra money on getting a Sony brand lamp. I have heard of other people having problems with the generic ones.

                                            The original bulb lasted almost exactly as long as it was supposed to. Installation was easy. Only problem is even after following all instructions we couldn't get the counter to reset so the projector thinks the old bulb is still installed and needs to be replaced.
