My local supplier just quoted me $520+Tax for the new bulb on my projector. I have seen on ebay they range in price from about $170 > $320.
A lot of them refer to OEM Bulbs and "compatible" housing.
Are these safe to buy? Will they affect my picture quality? Does anyone know of a reputable source who ships internationally that isn't too expensive?
Should I replace just the bulb or bulb plus housing?
How can I tell which of the OEM brands my bulb is and will it matter if I get an Osram if my current bulb was a Philips?
Thanks in advance.
