What is the difference between an Epson original lamp and an Epson compatible lamp?
Question from customers
Question from André M. :
My Epson projector lamp reaches certainly its end of life. In my simple observation, its luminosity regresses every day and I do not have the best image quality. In this case I would order a new lamp, but first, I would like to know: is there really a difference between an original lamp and compatible lamp?

Epson projector lamp
There is no difference between the Epson original lamp and Epson compatible lamp. The brightness and the useful life are the same.
The difference is in the manufacturing system. There is no mark on compatible lamps (you can relate this with generic medicines), and most importantly, the price difference is due to the fact that the lamp holder and the bulb of the compatible lamp are manufactured and assembled in a third factory, causing the lower cost for the Epson compatible lamp. However, the manufacturer Epson ensures the manufacturing process and the assembly but the bulb is still manufactured by a third factory which makes the higher cost.
In addition, you have a warranty of 3 months for the compatible lamp. So you can return it within this period if you are not satisfied.
