Rated 3 out of 5 by Griff Give me a discount
A brand new lamp makes my LCD purr like a brand new Cadillac. But they don't seem to last any time at all.
This will be the fourth lamp in this set. And the unit is 4 years old.
The original lamp lasted about 18 months, but the three subsequent lamps seem to be running out about 9 to 10 months.

It was extremely easy to replace this bulb. Makes my 55 inch WEGA look brand new with a vivid bright picture. I hope this bulb last 6 years like the first one did.

I replaces this light in OCT 2007. I am repalcing this now on Oct 09. That tells me the Quality of This product is very poor. My TV usage is normal usage about 5 hrs a day. So this light has averaged 2 years since the purchase of the TV and the 2 years after the first bulb replacement.
I ordered this time Paid for expedited shipping. Aftre Two business days, Sony has no knowledge of where the shipment is. I possibly would have a guaranteed replacement from a Generic Store. I could have bought this cheaper. I have used Sony product for 24 years... Tv's , Player, Cameras, Computers, Play Stations... After this experience, I will think twice in investing in another Sony product. May be I am a single customer. But I may be the first but not the only one.

First of all, I have nothing but good things to say about the performance of my original bulb. I bought my TV just before the Super Bowl in February 2005. I am now replacing the lamp in June 2011. Six great years!
I ordered this product with standard shipping on a Monday and it arrived that Saturday. I was concerned about the replacement process, because I am not handy in any way, but it was ridiculously simple, and took only 10 minutes (and that includes me looking at the owner's manual every 2 seconds.) My TV now looks like it did the day I brought it home. It's like I got a new TV! Now if Sony would come down about 50 bucks on the price, it would be perfect.

I read the reviews of others looking for a XL2200 and took their advice to go right to Sony and buy their replacement. I ordered it on Monday got it on Friday and it works like a champ. It even came with the allen wrench needed to unbolt the lamp. Total cost was about $213.00 with shipping. My tv looks like it did when I first bought it.

you have bought a great tv that was not cheap. do not buy a cheap replacement bulb. you will pay more for the sony bulb but it will last much much much longer and in the end it will be way cheaper. just read the horror stories out there. keep your sony .... sony.

I HAD MY XL-2200 LAMP GO OUT AFTER 8 YEARS. ORDERED A NEW LAMP FROM SONY ON LINE, REPRESENTATIVE WAS VERY HELPFUL ON LINE. INSTALLED THE NEW LAMP IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES, GREAT PICTURE AGAIN, JUST LIKE NEW. THE LAMP COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE CHEAPER.
