When our original lamp went out on our TV after four years, we purchased a replacement lamp. The first lamp lasted four years. The replacement lamp only lasted two months. From the reviews, it appears that is common and sometimes only worked a couple of days. No warranty. What a joke! What an inferior product.

Thought you should know
After four years of use the lamp went on our Sony HDTV. The timing wasn't the greatest since this occurred 2 weeks prior to Christmas and we were expecting a house full of people for the weekend. We read all of the reviews and decided to purchase the lamp through Sony even though it was more expensive. Didn't want to chance something going wrong. Sony shipped the order promptly, but as luck would have it the carrier lost the shipment. With only three days before Christmas I contacted Sony to file a claim and reship. Their original estimated time to process the replacement was 72-96 hours. As you can image we were very disappointed, but there didn't seem to be much we could do. Well THANK YOU Sony for getting into the spirit of the season and shipping the replacement overnight from CA to PA. You made Christmas for the kids, large and small!

Wholly Defective - Everything is Green
This replacement bulb makes all TV images appear greenish-yellow. I have tried in vain, even with Pro settings, to correct the color bias. It is unmistakeable and increasingly irritating. This product is not worthy of the Sony label, and I feel cheated.
