I have a DIY projector I built some time ago and was wanting to rebuild, but in the mean time really fell in love wiht the performance of a commercial projectors brightness with ambient lighting. So I am at the point now where I have half the parts for my DIY rebuild (going from a 15" 4x3 1024x768 to a 14" 16x9 1366x768, a 320mm triplet to a 18" beseler clone, need a 550mm fresnel, MDF and lots of time)

The commercial projector works great, but I am wanting more than 800x600, I have a 16x9 screen now (previously had a 4x3 painted wall) and while the projector has an option to squish the image to 16x9 it obviously introduces scaling and doesnt look great.

So I figured I would see if there were any better projectors native 16x9 that I might be able to use my bulbs in. or even if a projector might take a same size / rating bulb even though it might be a different part number and housing.

I tried to do some research by the bulb to reverse lookup what projectors the bulbs might work if I disassembled the bulb form the housing and came up with the following:

Projector is a PJ501, and I have several bulb assemblies for it, all new.

BULB: HSCR150H6H

I believe this lamp is the exact equivalent to the Philips UHP-150W-P21 and the Osram P-VIP 100-120/1.0 P20. The only different is that the lamp you got is made by Iwasaki. This practically increases your choice of projectors to JVC, Panasonic, Toshiba, Epson and Viewsonic.

The lamp you have will also replace the Iwasaki HSCR120E5H and HSCR130H6H without any problems. Just because they rate a lamp at 150W does not mean that it will not work on at a reduced power because this is what it practically does when the projector is in economy mode.

So the search goes on...

Thanks those part numbers will come in handy, already found quite a few more projectors my bulbs will work in.
Not lucking out and finding any native 16x9 ones though :(
Right now all I need is some MDF and time to rebuild my DIY PJ, so if anyone would want to buy one of these bulbs cheap let me know lol. I can sell it for my MDF, still have more bulbs and build my PJ with the money form the bulb inthe mean time.
