OK.... I dont know how that was ur point in your original reply to my post, because ur post spoke pointed at my new bulb being a cheap knockoff =P
My original stock bulb just seems to have a good life so far, still putting out as much light as a new genuine OSRAM bulb =)
I decided to buy the new bulb because my original one is getting long in the tooth and expected it to be dimmer and die at any time sooner rather than later. But given the new bulb is same light output, its now a backup I have on hand for when the original does blow up =)
And dang, Im loving the blacks again with this new DMD....!
