Authentic lamps are the best buy!

Many advertised their lamps as “generic and compatible” – a euphemism for a knock-off, copycat technology that produces an inferior and dangerous product. Don’t believe the cheap prices you see as there are hidden costs to installing generic lamps.
You get what you pay for and in the case of lower-priced generic lamps it’s usually a long list of problems:
- generics have a shorter lamp life than original lamps
- compatible lamps are made with toxic materials and carcinogenic parts including Krypton-85
- knock off lamps are prone to explosions
- generics will cause damage to the sensitive electronics in your projectors
- compatibles don’t offer guarantee or refunds and will void your warranty.
