So far this seems to be working perfectly. TV is much brighter and color temperature is back to normal. (The old bulb that I swapped out had gotten so dim that it was nearly impossible to see anything on the screen during the day, and the colors had shifted toward yellow/red.) I've seen reviews on some bulbs complain about a burning-plastic smell, but I haven't noticed anything like that. I wonder if folks are actually getting burning dust? When I opened up the panel, I vacuumed out a fair bit of dust before swapping the lamp.
I tried a cheaper bulb first and it lasted less than 30 days. I was able to return it and I ordered the Philips bulb. The picture looks fantastic. The old adage is true, "you get what you pay for"...
Really happy with the bulbs performance 1 month later. Picture looks better than it did with the worn out bulb. No problems yet.
