Is this lamp genuine?
Seller says so, is from US.
Lamp has stamp, barcode.
sku nr 103 525,
date code 16d,
150w marking (normal?)
But.....lamp looks totally different from my osram,
"Philips" is missing a small "glass gas tube" at the rear (like those on protections for lightning inside outlet protection circuits).
Should I move it (glass tube) to the new lamp.
Should I even install it?
Hmmm i was very maticulous when choosing a bare lamp on eBay not going for Chinese versions, but....I might have been fooled =/
Any one with a Philips lamp that can confirm the design?
Also different lamp tube with wire wrapped around the tube, see images.
And they sent a paper telling how to distinguish real from fake lamp, lol =)
Original lamp is the one in housing.
Bare lamp= eBay Philips genuine oem...at least so they said.
