VERY BAD LIFE ON BULB
5 Star Review   By Sonybaby on Sony - Official Store - Feb 17, 2014   

I purchased my Sony - Wega 3LCD HDTV in 2006, and it lasted me 8 years without any problems. It warned me for four years that the lamp was nearing its end of life but I just let it run it's course. Eight awesome years of good viewing. No complaints. I just ordered a replacement lamp and I look forward to more years of great color, and great sound. Love my TV!

Sony XL-2400 Replacement Lamp
5 Star Review   By member DMCHUGH4@NYCAP.RR.COM_60404643 - Oct 20, 2013   

These are great lamps. I have ordered from Electrified before and the lamps always last longer than the time when the television gives me a message that says the lamp is reaching the end of its life. Electrified website is thorough and efficient. Their prices are the best I have found and their delivery is fast.

Cant hook up my HDMI
4 Star Review   By forgot on Sony - Official Store - Sep 14, 2012   

We purchased out Sony Wega May of 2006 from Costco. The bulb just went out for the 1st time september of 2112. I see several complaints about the cost of the bulb, I know Sony is not the least expensive product on the market because it is good quality. If you do not want to have to spend a little more for a better quality bulb as well, then puchase a cheaper TV from a discount box store. the replacement bulbs are cheaper (just like the TV). I have no complaints about my Sony Wega.... thank you Sony for making a great product.

2 Star Review   By NaNaP on Sony - Official Store - Jul 1, 2012   

I have had this TV for 5-1/2 years and this will be the third projection lamp. I paid $250 for the repair work 2 years ago and now need to replace it again. Would be better off to go the WalMart and buy a new off-brand.

worst investment ever
4 Star Review   By ashrenee on Sony - Official Store - Mar 5, 2012   

For some reason I can't seem to hook up my HDMI, does anyone have any helpful tips or anything? I've been at this for about 3 hours trying to figure it out. I've just bought the HDMI cable today so I know it can't be it. I've tried hooking up both my ps3 and my Verizon Fios cable set top box and neither of them seem to do anything. Overall, it's an amazing tv. Got it cheap from a friend of mines, but just the HDMI is the problem.

Worst TV Ever Bought
1 Star Review   By Clayp on Sony - Official Store - Jan 13, 2012   

TV was expensive, didnt know I would be replacing the bulb every 15 months which costs $200 if you can do it yourself, or $300 if you need a repairman! Years ago I said bye bye to Ford for faulty workmanship, today I say bye bye to Sony... whoever would have thought?

Disappointed
1 Star Review   By babydoll on Sony - Official Store - Nov 8, 2011   

Again, I just want to say what others have said. We have had this TV for less than 3 years and already having to replace the lamp. The owners manual says that it should last 8,000 hrs. This is NOT TRUE!! We paid a lot for this Sony and thought we would get more "life" out of it.

Lamp life is awesome, I bought this tv on Jan 06 and is in my in laws living room on 24/7 and I have never had to replace the lamp or have had any problems with it. I'm thinking about buying the replacement lamp, but not just yet. AWESOME TV.

BUYER'S REMORSE
5 Star Review   By Dick82 on Sony - Official Store - Apr 29, 2011   

We purchased a Sony 50" LCD Rear Projection TV in May 2006. It had picture quality comparable to plasma but was much, much cheaper. We have enjoyed the TV for 5 years and the picture has gradually grown darker. Yesterday I acquired and installed a new XL-2400 lamp and now the picture is as good as the day we bought it. In fact, we just purchased a 26" LED LCD TV for our bedroom and love the picture, but our Sony now matches it in quality agaion.

4 Star Review   By BFAV4EVR on Sony - Official Store - Sep 9, 2010   

My husband bought this tv in early 2007 and only now do we have to replace the bulb. We only watch about 2-5 hours of TV a day on average. And it's cheaper than buying a new tv. We can't complain. Sony hasn't disappointed us at all.

The weakest link!
1 Star Review   By sphinx on Sony - Official Store - Sep 6, 2010   

Bought the TV in March 2007 and the the bulb just blew a couple of weeks ago. Bought a new bulb and now there is a bright red 2" band on the top and bottom of the television. For a 3 year old tv, that's a pain in the butt to deal with.

They Lie About The Warranty
3 Star Review   By watcher on Sony - Official Store - Jul 29, 2010   

I bought this Tv almost 5 years ago within a year the replace bulb warning came on I looked at the prices and decided to wait until it was totally burnt since the warranty didn't cover bulbs now over four years later the bulb finally died on me I'm not happy about the price but after heavy usage for almost 5 years it lasted long enough but i will never buy a rear projection again

Love my tv!
1 Star Review   By Upsetconsumer on Sony - Official Store - Jun 5, 2010   

We hooked up this 52" Sony HD TV in Nov. 2005 and May of 2007 & Sept. of 2009 we had to replace the bulb. Sony may ship within 24 hrs. but it takes a week for it to arrive from CA to IN. Next time the picture starts taking a longer period of time to come on, we will order the bulb so we'll have it when it other bulb burns out. The price of the bulb is $200. So anyone out there, buy an extended warranty when purchasing a TV that needs a bulb, it will pay for itself in the long run.

Sony Grand WEGA 50" Worst idea in big ticket purch
4 Star Review   By HappywithmySony on Sony - Official Store - Jun 4, 2010   

Have had this set since early 2006. It was a great buy then. Am currently looking for a replacement bulb - 4.5 years on the original. I think all the folks complaining about the cost of the bulb here need to: 1) Use the internet and find a better deal. Paid half of what they are asking at Sony.com for an OEM bulb replacement. 2) Remember why you bought the projection set over a flat panel 3-4 years ago....The main reason was that it was half or more the cost of a similar spec flat panel TV. Overall this set is great, very happy with it. Looking forward for its move to the basement so I can replace it with a larger flat panel (which will probably be less than I paid for this TV originally!!). I will definitely consider SONY again.

Sony Grand Wega Projection TV
5 Star Review   By CashmereDalek on Sony - Official Store - May 27, 2010   

I love my KDF-E2000. All you people who complain that it didnt last you long enough. Yall are just dumb dumbs, A) You should have done the research on the lamps before you even paid. Average Lamp life is between 2500 - 5000hrs depending on your settings. You should know how much telly you watch. I was off by a month from the estimation of my lamp life. I watch alot of TV and play videos games for hours. I would have to say I use my TV probably bout 40 - 60 a week. B) You should have bought the warranty from the store where you bought the tv from...They would have offered you a 2 - 10 year warranty for $70 - $120. That warranty would have covered your lamp replacements for up to 10 years. C) I am sure you all got your SONY RPTVs for super cheap if they are all less than 3 years old...You got a great deal. You knew well enough that this day would come. You should have been asking "how much is a lamp for this tv?" when you bought it. D) Dude!!!!! Its the internet. Hunt down the lamp for your tv. I found a few sites that sell the lamps and the cases for $149 - $239. Free shipping. Dont yall dare talk bad bout my TV... Good luck and happy watching

Good business, Poor customer satisfaction
5 Star Review   By Okiezmom on Sony - Official Store - Apr 29, 2010   

Already buying my second $200 replacement bulb for my Sony Wega KDF46E2000. Bought the tv 2 yrs ago at a "sales" price of $2200. Right at the 12 month mark had to buy a replacement bulb for $200. Now exactly 12 months later here we go again, another $200. I wonder if they thought about how to rob people of their hard earned money by designing a product like this. I know my next tv will not be rear projection nor a sony!!

I purchased Sony 42 Wega in August of 2007 - worked fantasic! Back in October 2010 - original bulb went out. Bought a new bulb - no problem - still cheaper than a new TV. 4 months pass - second bulb is out! Now it gets frustrating. I really like this TV - only issue is not having enough HDMI inputs but it is great. Buy another bulb or another TV??

Piece of Junk
1 Star Review   By Outraged on Sony - Official Store - Mar 16, 2010   

After purchasing a Sony TV less than 2 years ago, it is very disappointing to have to pay over $200 for a replacement part. Sony needs to improve the overall performance of these bulbs and quit gouging the customers that have to buy one in order to watch their TV.

I purchased a Sony 55" LCD TV in February 2008, now it Nov 2009 and it is telling me to replace the projection lamp. I looked up the price, and it is $200, I can't believe it. As much as I paid for this tv, the lamp should be a little cheaper. Sony is really cheating their customers.

Replacement Lamp Order
5 Star Review   By SonySteve on Sony - Official Store - Nov 24, 2009   

I bought this in September, 2006 and haven't had a problem yet. (Knock on wood.) Picture quality is great and hands down this rear projection TV blows away the competition. I've been waiting for the projection bulb to go for almost a year now, but alas, it just keeps on working. I'll be a Sony fan for life! I wrote a con, but I knew this when I bought it...otherwise would have 5 stars across the board.

5 Star Review   By abcdefg on Sony - Official Store - Nov 18, 2009   

We have had our Sony 55" Grand WEGA LCD TV for a little over four years now. We have teenage kids in our house so the TV is always on. The replace the bulb message has been coming up for about a year, we are just now replacing the bulb so we do not have to go without a TV. People want to complain about the cost of replacement bulbs, What in life do you purchase that at some point and time you know you are going to have to spend more money to replace the item or buy parts for it.

The Sony TV was bought 1 year ago and I've already had to buy another lamp for the TV. Too much money for the lamp. Won't be buying another Sony again.

DO NOt BUY SONY GRAND WEGA
1 Star Review   By HTSE on Sony - Official Store - Sep 21, 2009   

Purchased the replacement lamp back in Dec 08 (original lamp did not even last more than a year) and 9 months later the lamp needs to be replaced again! At $200 a pop this is just unacceptable. This is a very poor product. Think twice before investing your hard earn cash in this replacement lamp.

Not the only one!!! Buck up little campers!!!
5 Star Review   By Billlllllllllllllllllllll on Sony - Official Store - Sep 20, 2009   

I agree with the rest. I hadn't planned to have to spend $200 every couple or 3 years. My last TV lasted 11 and didn't cost near as much. They're making money, but at the customer expense. My next tv will not need lamp replacements!

Worst buy ever
1 Star Review   By AWOL on Sony - Official Store - Aug 26, 2009   

I had no idea that I would have to replace such an expensive part in such a short time. We bought our 50" TV a couple of years ago. I was shocked when the "replace the bulb" message popped up on the screen. I just about fell over dead when I searched online for a replacement. I promise you, my next investment won't be a SONY!!! I can't remember when I've regretted buying a product made by what most consider a leader in the industry. SONY, if you're leading....I'm not following...

Good investment at the time
1 Star Review   By labrum on Sony - Official Store - Aug 18, 2009   

One of the worst products from Sony. Original bulb lasted one and half years, 2nd one lasted one year and I just placed an order for the 3rd one. Perhaps I wont buy another Sony TV anymore. Unfortunately, one wouldnt see these reviews untill he is forced to buy this piece of junk.

KDF-E2000/ Lamp XL2400
1 Star Review   By Tired on Sony - Official Store - Aug 8, 2009   

In the past 14 months I have had too replace this lamp twice. The first was at 8 months; and then 6 months later. The lamp is over priced for the actual time it will last! Otherwise the television show a Good picture. The lamp so far is the main problem.

Poor Technology
1 Star Review   By OHIO614 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 5, 2009   

I purchased this product in March 2008 and my T.V. is saying to replace it already January 2009, when I bought the T.V. they told me the average life is about 2 years I only got 16 months out the original lamp and now I only got 10 months out of the replacement.

Worst Purchase Ever
5 Star Review   By dakota453 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 4, 2009   

Have had the Sony 4200 for almost 3 years. Often sees at least 8 and sometimes 16 hours of operation a day and the lamp finally went out (today). Replacement was as piece of cake.

1 Star Review   By heathers on Sony - Official Store - Jul 22, 2009   

We bought this TV in November of 2008. March 4th the TV quit and the replace bulb light came on. After looking up the problem, I didn't have any recourse but to order the $200 replacement bulb. I ordered the bulb on March 6th. Everytime I checked the status of my order it said "processing". I called customer care and they said they would find out the problem and e-mail me but I never received an e-mail. Now it says that the product is on backorder which tells me there are a lot more people out there with this same problem. I wish I had the money to sue!

turns out to be a product that is never paid for.
1 Star Review   By tickedoff on Sony - Official Store - Jul 21, 2009   

I bought a rear projection TV from Sony 2.5 years ago and was told that I would need to replace the lamp in about 5 years. The life of the lamp is only 2.5 years! When I called complaining, I was told that they were 'very sorry I was misinformed'! Had I know I would be spending another $200 in 2 years on a TV I already spent over $1,500 on, I would have not bought it! I will not buy another Sony! Overpriced! All you are paying for is a name that holds a lot less weight for me now!

Terrible Product
1 Star Review   By Marissa on Sony - Official Store - Jul 19, 2009   

I PAID OVER A $1000 FOR THIS 50" INCH PIECE OF JUNK ONLY TO HAVE THE LAMP GO IN UNDER TWO YEARS. I'LL BUY ONE REPLACEMENT LAMP, THEN I WILL BUY ANOTHER TV, AND IT WON'T BE A SONY.

Just buy the bulb from discount place
1 Star Review   By HEDGEHOG on Sony - Official Store - Jun 13, 2009   

We bought this TV 3 years ago and thought at the time that we were getting a great deal. We had a Sony rear projection previously that went through several moves with us without an issue with lamps or image. Had it for 9 years before we had any issues with it and because it had lasted so long we decided to go Sony again. What a mistake. As I can see by so many others on this site, this product was created to cause you to replace the lamp often so that Sony can have business. 3 years and 2 lamps for us. Only I WON"T be buying the second lamp this time. I will go ahead and upgrade to a different TV and brand so that I do not have to keep buying new bulbs every 15 months! Come on Sony - read these reviews. Do you seriously want to lose your reputation as a great company over this inferior product?

Being ignorant is not Sony's fault
1 Star Review   By Illinois on Sony - Official Store - Jun 4, 2009   

sony offers faster deliver at an additional charge. I paid the extra $15 for 2-3 day shipping. What they don't tell you before you spend the extra money is if your purchase is in stock or not. So I spent $15 extra on the 10th, and call on the 16th to find out why my order has not arrived only to be told that the item is on backorder and I will be receiving an email in 24-48 hours with info on my purchase. $15 wasted, sony says sorry.

Poor Lamp Life
2 Star Review   By jimbo3 on Sony - Official Store - Mar 12, 2009   

I bought my 55" inch TV (KDF-55E2000) back in the summer of 2007 and now the lamp has gone bad after only 1 1/2 years. It's life is supposed to be 8,000 hours (avg). Now I get to spend $200 to get a new part.

parts order
1 Star Review   By HD45 on Sony - Official Store - Feb 3, 2009   

Picture tube life of under 3 years was not what I expected from a Sony product. Waiting several weeks for a replacement tube indicates either under-stocking of higher than expected demand (poor quality). I expected better from the Sony brand.
