Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

I've purchased a cheap [@]knock-off from [@]last time which lasted just over 600 hours. I decided to go for the real deal this time and so far so good. The brightness and quality do appear slightly better with the legit lamp.

    Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

    After using a cheaper type of bulb and getting the worst experience with low brightness and only 2k hours instead of the avg of 3500 I went ahead and got the real thing.
    This bulb removed any thought of upgrading for now as the image is bright and sharp.
    I am content with my 8 year old projector even with today's HD content.

      Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

      I've owned my Panasonic PT AX200U Projector since 2008 with an original bulb that lasted well over 3,000 hours, and after it finally needed to be replaced I purchased an OEM bulb. It was a higher end OEM but it wasn't nearly as bright and dimmed over time, however in the area I was using the bulb it needed that extra something that my original lamp had. After replacing the OEM lamp with another OEM brand I began to see a trend. The next lamp, seemed promising at the start but quickly dimmed, and became unbearable to use as it also regularly overheated. Neither of the OEM lamps lasted more than 1,000 hours. SO, I went back to the manufacturers lamp, and not only did I see a great improvement in brightness, the lamp also stopped overheating the projector. Seriously in the long run I would have saved money purchasing the ET-LAX100 in the first place and I have no doubt I would still be using it today.
      I've purchased my last OEM lamp for my Panasonic PT AX200U Projector and also learned a valuable lesson, sometimes it just doesn't pay to buy OEM. This lamp is quick and easy to install, plus it comes with a new projector filter, which the other lamps did not.

      It's Real

      Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

      It is actually made by Panasonic and it's genuine. Returned my projector to "like new" brightness. My only complaint is the cost (thus minus one star). It is about three times to cost of a generic OEM-equivalent bulb from other sellers.

        After reading all the issues with third party lamps and not willing to deal with a 50% return rate, I bought this authentic Panasonic lamp through B&H. For one B&H has been very reliable and the Panasonic lamp includes a new filter as well. It was easy to install and has worked very well so far.

          Yes, this is the real OEM Panasonic lamp. Be VERY cautious when shopping for the OEM lamp since about 95% of the lamps on the 'net are fakes. Some sellers of such fakes are honest about that fact and the fair price for such an "OEM replacement" lamp is[$]. I'd give B&H 5 stars except the [$] for this original lamp is so high.

            I received the lamp in a timely manner. The packaging was well done. The inside package was the original Panasonic package for the ETLAX100. The lamp packaging is well done and provides great protection for the lamp. The instructions that came with the lamp were clear and easy to follow. I replaced the lamp with relative ease. The projector is back to original condition - great picture. I considered the lower price alternatives but I'm glad that I went with original manufacture and B&H.

              This is a factory original replacement lamp.
              Not one of those cheaper knock offs that are all over the web.
              Came with a replacement air filter as well.
              Significant brightness improvement over my old lamp which was at 1850 hours.
              Packaged nicely and arrived promptly.
              Great buying experience.

                I needed a replacement lamp from someone I felt offered authentic factory parts. I read the B&H customer reviews and being satisfied I called. I'm very pleased with the courteous service and fast shipping I received from them. The lamp arrived in a couple of days (double boxed), I installed it in about 10 min. and now I have a bright, sharp beautiful picture again. There are replicas out there but I wouldn't order anything other than this part in the future.

                          We've had our projector for 3 years. The original bulb lasted about 2400 hours on eco mode before the replace lamp indicator came on. We then replaced with a 'cheap bulb', never again. It lasted only 1400 hours on ecomode and then cut out without warning. We just put in the new panasonic replacement bulb from B&H, and wow, you get what you pay for! Super bright and clear. B&H was easy to order from online and got the product to us within the specified time. Will order from them again.

                                  There are a lot of knock-off ETLAX100 replacement lamps out there, so one has to be careful to avoid getting burned with a cheap imitation. This one from B&H is the real deal from Panasonic. Replacement couldn't be simpler: 4 screws, unplug old lamp, plug in new lamp, 4 screws and you're back in action. While my original lamp was still working at 2113 hrs, there is no doubt that its lumen output had diminished. I think that in the future I will replace the lamp at about 1500 hours, as the loss of lumen output as the lamp gets much older than that is unacceptable for critical viewing.

                                    The new bulb came packaged well and was a breeze to install. 4 screws and it's out - 4 screws and it's in.

                                    Glad they sent along an air filter as well. The old filter (which I wasn't even sure where to find initially) was full of dust and in extreme need of replacement.

                                    You go into the purchase of a digital projector knowing that bulbs are a pricey expendable. After getting literally blinded by the 20th Century Fox logo, disorientedly making my way back to the couch for the evening's entertainment, I was reminded of why we bought the projector in the first place. There are cheaper models out there, but there's something to be said about the reliability of true factory product like this. Spend the extra money. I got two years out of our original bulb, hoping for as much luck on this one.
