Beware of Copy Lamps 26 Feb 2012

There are three main types of projector lamp that you can purchase. They are the Original Manufacturers’ Lamp, a Genuine Compatible Lamp and finally Copy Lamps.

Original Projector Lamps are normally made by the projector manufacturer such as Sanyo & Hitachi. These are manufactured to very high standards, as you would expect from leading worldwide brands.

Compatible Projector Lamps use the same Original Manufacturers’ Projector Bulb assembled into their own compatible chassis, such as Diamond Lamps. The bulb is manufactured by the same company, such as Philips or Osram who manufactured the lamp for the projector manufacturer. As they use the same bulb then its performance is identical to the original, therefore both lamp life & brightness are identical. However copy lamps are counterfeit or fake lamps often produced in the Far East and likely to give a performance which is far inferior to an original.

Projector Lamps are highly engineered units, manufactured to withstand operating temperatures sometimes hotter than the sun! When fake lamps are made corners have to be cut and so they are not manufactured to the same exacting high standards. This can lead to the lamp exploding in use and so damaging the projector. Often the lamp is not as bright and doesn’t last as long and so buying a copy lamp is generally a false economy. Also your projector warranty is void if you do not use a genuine lamp.

Prices of copy lamps are often low compared to originals however the old adage of “You get what you pay for” is never more true when it comes to buying projector lamps.

Simply Lamps only ever supply Genuine Projector Lamps & Bulbs and are members of the Genuine Lamps alliance, for more details see, http://www.genuinelamps.org/.
