    It's Real

    By Buyer

    from Washington DC

    Verified Buyer

    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.

      Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

      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.

        Comments about Panasonic ET-LAX100 Projector Lamp:

        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.

                I needed a replacement lamp, and while it is pricier than the knock-offs, it's been working just fine without worry. My projector feels brand new again :*) Came in quick, with instructions to change it out. Just what I needed, thanks!

                        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.

                                                    B&H rocks. [...] as advertised. [...]The lamp is simple to replace, just a few screws and your good for another 2000 hours of light. My only gripe was having to mess with my mounting harness to gain access to the lamp service door. I am glad they include a new filter along with the lamp, it's the little things...

                                                      This is the exact replacement bulb for my panasonic projector. You can buy cheaper 3rd party alternatives, but I decided I didn't want to experiment with compatability for such a critical part. The projector image is like new again (much brighter than with the worn out bulb) and I know that my machine will be happy again for a long time[...] if you need a replacement bulb for your projector you can't go wrong with these.

                                                            The replacement bulb for my Panasonic AX200U was very easy to install.[...] It was a simple install, remove 2 screw to take the cover off, remove 2 more for the lamp, reverse the process, and I was done. It brought new life to the projector. Images are much brighter just like when the projector was brand new.
