Can anyone recommend a cheap supplier of a new bulb for a HS10?
AFAIK about 300 including the VAT you may get cought for (I didn't) when importing from outside the EU
Cheers - I assume it is the same lamp for UK HS10s and imports?
Yep, the part is "LMP-H180" which is now also the lamp for the HS20 and is (according to something I read on AVSFORUM) much improved on the older HS10 lamps
How many hours have you had on each bulb?
Currently on 1600 on my first.
I think I killed the first lamp by turning it on straight after it had shut down in a powercut. It had about 300 hours (replaced by pricejapan under the projector warranty). The second lamp had the lamp bug so I returned that one within the 90 day lamp warranty period and the last lamp is running flawlessly (knock on wood) and the projector is now at 900 hours.
I would not complain if I got 1500 hours from a lamp. This would represent about two years viewing for me and at 150 a year that's not bad. My bin charges are twice that
