Best Factory Replacement Bulbs?

Hello all,

I am due to replace the bulb in my Planar PD7060, and am on a bit of a budget...(ain't we all?). I am looking at all the online retailers as well as Amazon, (whom I'd prefer to use). I do know enough to get the OEM bulb/manufacturer if at all possible.

The actual replacement bulb with housing is still in the 400.00 range per Visual Apex. I am seeing anywhere from 1-200 for a bare Osram bulb on Amazon, MyProjectorlamps.com, BulbAmerica, Pureland Supply, etc...


The Planar calls for an Osram 997-3443-0. Where does everyone get their bulbs? Reliable companies? How do I know I am not getting a knockoff? What should I look for? Warranty?

Thanks everyone

I bought a discount replacement bulb from Illuminex Technologies, Inc. and it works as well as the original as far as I can tell.

Thanks, But as I understand "discount" may not be the same as the factory uses. I have experienced this in my Samsung DLP. The aftermarket replacement was not as bright out-of-the-box...

I'm looking to make sure it is a Osram replacement...same bulb, same specs.

anybody?

Nobody's bought their lamps outside of their manufacturer, and can recommend a retailer??
