the lamp only and replacing the bad lamp in your existing housing is a
very cost effective way that can save you up to hundreds of dollars.
The lamp installation is simple and takes only minutes to complete. The
plastic housing surrounding
the lamp is completely reusable. Picture quality and brightness will
not be affected by reusing the housing. We can safely say that because
we have thoroughly tested this
on every lamp we give advice on. If you do purchase the complete lamp
in housing you should have your old lamp housing recycled because it
contains mercury. It is also against many state laws to throw this
product in the trash. It is highly recommended when you purchase a
lamp replacement to buy a factory original OEM
(original equipment manufacturer) lamp. The two manufacturers of lamps
that TV companies use are Osram and Philips. Some
companies may debate
that Philips lamps are better than Osram or vice versa, but that is
only opinion (or sales tactics) as there are no statistics proving
one is better than the other. We have extensively tested (over 25,000
testing hours) each brand and neither
performs better or lasts longer than the other. Purchasing a lamp
any other brand is an "OEM compatible", generic, or aftermarket lamp
(DNGO, APO). This is not advised because these lamps have a fraction
of the lamp life and can possibly damage your TV.
