contains the number F-9308-860-0 in the listing, in addition to the Sony part number of XL-5200.
I decided to go to the Philips web site, and found a page for a F-9308-860-0 lamp, which, sadly, has very little information (no specifications). From the web page, you can download a PDF leaflet, which also has very little information, and a high-resolution image, which is slightly more useful. The web page does confirm that the Philips part number for the lamp is F-9308-860-0.
Here is the Philips web page for "Philips UHP TV replacement lamp F-9308-860-0 Original Sony":
and here is a direct link to the high-resolution image:
I then searched Amazon and was able to found this:
"Philips Lighting F-9308-860-0RL SONY XL-5200 REPLACEMENT TELEVISION LAMP"
This seems to be the only Amazon listing with the characters "Philips" and "F-9308-860-0" in the title. I noted the following about this Amazon listing:
The part number is slightly messed up. The variant of the part number "F-9308-860-0RL" (with the letters RL at the end) appears only in this Amazon listing, as if someone tacked on the initials for "Replacement Lamp" to the part number. It is common for Amazon listings (for anything) to have "oddities" like this.
The reviewer rating is high: 37 of 43 reviewers (86%) gave this product a four or five star rating. This is significantly better than the ratings of some of the lower-priced Amazon listings with "Sony XL-5200" in the product title (these are probably the "cheap knock-off" lamps).
There are currently 13 vendors for this listing ("13 new") . Most of the vendors have high customer ratings also.
I also found that the operators of the e-bay store "Niosales", or "NEI Lamps and Electronics", do business under other names (I'm not suggesting this is nefarious, there may be good reasons for a merchant to use a different name on e-bay than other sales channels);
The e-bay "Niosales" storefront includes an e-mail address with a domain of nesselectronics.com:
Here is the nesselectronics.com website:
which in turn points to another, newer, website, "Shop Jimmy":
Oh, a note to Mookeylama, agentalbert, liquidmetal, Bill Misencik, ngwest36, and probably others:
no matter what kind of lamp you have, you definitely do not have a Phillips lamp, because Phillips with two L's (as an Internet .com domain) is an art auction house. The multinational electronics company headquartered in the Netherlands is Philips. Successful searches start with correct spelling
Finally, several Amazon reviewers mentioned that the "genuine" Philips replacement lamp is being shipped with a flyer that "describes how to tell a fake Philips bulb from a real one".
