    www.justprojectorlamps.co.uk

    Asked the AO to get a new lamp unit for one of the projectors in the school, and she picked this lot as they seemed to be on the south coast and the price was right. They promised speedy delivery, but blew it on that score, though after much chasing they lived up to the beginning of their name by providing literally just the lamp. After taking the old cartridge apart and fitting the lamp, it didn't work. As soon as I could, I ran a multimeter across the bulb and it seemed faulty. At that stage the LEA hadn't paid them as they didn't live up to the second part of their name, as they are based in France. We reported the fault, but were unable to get a replacement lamp sent as they apparently have found that their supplier was unreliable. We agreed to order a "proper" replacement (with cartridge) and pay the difference, but were told that a credit note could only be issued on receipt of the faulty lamp - they'd email the details.

    One week and 3 calls later, still no details and the LEA have unfortunately paid up. It's not looking hopeful...

    Finally got an email!

    It said go to our site and use the online RMA procedure, which would be great - if it worked. (The drop down menu for "type of lamp" isn't populated and the form throws an error if you don't fill in the field.

    when working at the kingswood school we used to get them from here

    Replacement Projector Lamps & Bulbs, Sony, Infocus, Epson, Hitachi, NEC, Sanyo, Panasonic, Philips Video, Data, Home Cinema, Multimedia LCD Projector Lamps & Bulbs, UK

    They seemed to be good on price, delivery etc at the time so maybe worth a shot but am sure Simon should be able to beat the price

    6 of one and half a dozen of the other

    [EDITED]

    fair point fella but you arent a school so we cant supply you with educational pricing which makes things very difficult chap the fact that we can meet your pricing should be cool as we are a sponsor of your favourite site and not say Aria or Overclockers fella

    The saga continues...

    Apparently "everyone else" can use their RMA. I'll test it at home just in case it's not BS.

    Is this any good to anyone?

    Lasertech UK Ltd

    Don't have any idea about how good they are as I have never dealt with them before.
