Just be sure you wear gloves while handling the lamp or oils from fingers on a bare bulb will cause early failure.

Looking back in this thread suggests the Philips bulb might be a better but more expensive choice (30% brighter initially according to some posts).

I found this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C74M0TQ..._ugaHxbQV364WY

How difficult is it to install a new bulb in an old housing? I've replaced plenty of the complete units but they were the knock offs and haven't lasted long. Now im looking for a better option.

It isn't difficult if you have an old knockoff housing. The OEM housing on mine had the old bulb soldered in, which would mean adding lug connectors and screws to attach to a new bare bulb. My knockoff housings had the lugs screw-attached to the lamp and was a simple swap.

I had purchased what was supposedly a Philips bare bulb but it may have been a knockoff. It was not as bright as a new OSRAM and the color seemed a bit green to me.
