Why Should We Buy Genuine/OEM Projector Lamps?
OEM lamp is produced by the original equipment manufacturer and was chosen by the projector brand in such a way where the projector and lamp are perfectly suiting to each other.
There are four major manufacturers of lamps in the marketplace: Philips, Osram, Ushio, Phoenix. You can verify this by seeing a label our lamp pages.
There are a lot of Chinese bulbs on the market but they are just copies and often do not work as you expected.
OEM lamps are rare to find especially for the cheap price. Tekswamp suggests you the best OEM options for the price.
Our company is experienced in projector bulbs, so we strongly recommend you better to use only OEM projector lamps. We want you to receive the best experience when you buying our OEM lamps.
Be attentive when reading the listings. Stay away from the lamps labeled as OEM Equivalent, Replacement lamps aim to fit…, or if there is no particular lamp manufacturer associated with this lamp.
Tekswamp technicians process around 1000 projectors each month. During their testing and refurbishing, they come across projectors that do not meet our stringent requirements and are put aside to be used for parts. It's the bare OEM bulbs from those projectors that are pulled, tested to assure they are at OEM spec for white balance, record the actual hours used and repacked to be sold/shipped as an OEM bare bulb. In many cases, these bulbs have low hours or no usage in the projectors they came from. It is not uncommon for us to get projectors with no or very little use until they pulled and replaced with newer models. This is why we warranty our OEM bare bulbs.
