Rated 3 out of 5 by natalie Too many purchases of lamp
I have never had a problem with a SONY TV...but my LCD projection TV by SONYis disappointing because of the lamp. It seems that I have to purchase a lamp every year. With the rate I'm going I could just purchase a new flat screen tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Acctool After six years
I bought my 50" Sony WEGA in January 2005, and the light pack started to go within two years. I guess I was either stubborn to not replace it or fortunate to have it last six years, but this NOS replacement with no trustworthy generic leaves me no choice but to buy another set the next time the lamp goes out. It's robbery to have to buy this necessary $200 product every couple years, when my parents cheap vacuum ray tube TV worked for decades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cady Very Good Purchase
Ordered this on Tuesday and received it today ( Friday)
it took 15 minutes to take out old lamp and put in new one. Works like a charm. My picture is a sharp as it was when
tv was new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeF1952 Looking to purchase as a replacement
I have had my Sony Grand Wega KDF-42WE655 for about 6 years. At the end of the extended warranty we had the lamp replaced by the technician. We had gotten over two years out of that lamp. The second lamp is just starting to get slow to brighten up and is likely much darker than a new lamp. Still is watchable after at least three years. I have been happy with the lamp lifetime. I will give an update if I have any problems with the new lamp. Does seem $200 is steep and I am looking for a lower cost alternative to the Sony full retail price.

Had bulb repaced a year and a week ago on our Grand Wega. After that period of time the picture is significantlt darker than it was originally, and we'll have to replace it soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lovetowatchtv Gets worse every purchase
The very first lamp I got with the TV lasted 5 years.....bought a new replacement and that one lasted 2 years......bought one Oct 2011 and now I have to replace that one.....not good....not good......thinking I am going to replace the TV with a new one and most likely won't be a Sony......

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rickoneil Totally Disappointed
This is a total rip off, I bought this replacment bulb in march of this year and it went out this month, October. I would have been better off buying a new tv... just not a sony.
