    You could try B&Q or maybe Focus :rotfl: ;)
    Or if you want a projector lamp try Ivojo

    Regards

    Have a look at computer suppliers my vw10HT bulb is £351.32 inc VAT from ww.dabs.co.uk vs £475.88 from ivojo, just about too order one they claim 1-2 weeks for delivery.

    Cheers

    hi
    pricejapan.com is another option, i have never ordered anything from them myself but noticed a few people from the forum have had dealings with them. from what i have read they have a very good reputation, and i also know a few people have ordered replacement bulbs from them.
    hopefully some one that has purchased a bulb from them maybe be able to shed a little more light on the subject.. :clown:
    best wishes and regards

    hi
    just checked the price for hs20 bulb, pricejapan.com quoted me £197 including shipping and insurance.
    so maybe worth a check to see if they do one for your pj.
    sent them an email recieved a reply in 5 minutes :censored: mine thats quick. :D
    also be nice to hear others opinions and experience on ordering a replacement bulb from them...
    best wishes and regards

    Just asked for a quote for Sanyo Z2 bulb just to check

    They quoted me within 5 minutes - which is cool.

    Quote was £151

    for better shipping that they recommend DHL it is £167 the one above is with EML

    Anyone bought a bulb from these, considering buying in 10! LOL and sell them off for £200 each :lesson:

    I think there is lampz.co.uk..... or at least there used to be. I didnt know PJ did lamps on their own, I did ask sometime back and they refused to sell me one unless I had bought the matching projector from them
