    Well, my first one lasted close to 8000 hours in my Toshiba 52mw48 DLP set. Second lamp was 'bad' and replaced by Toshiba.

    I've got the Sony KDF-E50 3LCD RPTV. Sony quote 8000hrs for the bulb.
    My lamp counter says 230hrs for my first months viewing, so at that rate
    the bulb should be good for about 3 years.

    When it goes I'll get a new one (about £100-£150) and the set will be back
    to a nearly brand new picture.

    Steve.

    Has anyone bought a Samsung SP46L6HX bulb? If so, how much, and where did you get it from?

    Thanks.

    Contact Samsung using this - link. They'll tell you about suppliers near you that sell the lamps.
