They should not state Samsung if it's made by Lux Sharp(but I knew that going in) I purchased this replacement lamp and paid extra for 2nd day shipping. When I finally received the lamp I installed and even let it sit for several hours just to make sure it was at room temp. Once I turned it on it worked great, followed by a loud pop and horrible smell! 6,000 hrs life only lasted about 15 minutes. 1 year warranty, well only if you can contact the seller, which you are unable to do! I could only talk with amazon and all they could do is give me a refund. Time, labor, and money on shipping spent; I got zero in return. I doubt I will ever even shop amazon in the future because anyone can sell anything and call it whatever they want! I just pray that when I get a new replacement lamp I don't then find out that this cheap junk I tried caused damaged to my TV! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GUARANTY, THE ONLY ONE YOU WILL FIND HERE IS IF YOU TURN THE PAGE AND KEEP LOOKING! I read the reviews, good and bad, and thought any product will have a few flaws. No no no, how many times have you received something and it worked the way it was intended and then wrote a review stating "The greatest thing ever!"? In the future I will pay more attention to only the negative comments because no way could this product get so many 5 stars unless they pay employees to write reviews for junk like this. Long story short, I'm writing this to help you. Please don't waste your time on this item, spend $10-$40 more and enjoy for a couple years.
