If the lamp looks like the pictures on the link it is NOT an Osram PROJECTOR lamp.
Brand name is TOP Osram (everything looks very similar to Osram - even logo on their web page
TOP Osram or "P-VIP Osram" (Im guessing counterfeit or back projection TV lamps)
funy thing I also find it here - and when clicking link I come to above.
ORIGINAL OSRAM web page (very similar web page and name)
How do I know?
Osram resellers for projectors from .com sites - they dont seem to have online PROJECTOR sale of lamps as seen here in their reseller list (not even in China or USA)
Also - the closest matching (TOP) lamp module (same shape) to my JVC-DLA X30 would be below.
The lamp is specced 200W, but does not have the "small glass fuse" on the back as original has.
Original DLA-x30 lamp is specced 220W and has no TOP OSRAM marking - marking is totally different.
I have gone through several Osram original lamps and it does NOT have a "spiral" around the light source in the center of the lamp like the Osram TOP copy has.
It also has a small "glass tube" at the rear electrode.
I later bought a "Guaranteed original Philips" lamp - and that one looked exactly like the one You posted, only stamped Philips instead and NO "glass tube" - exactly like those TOP lamps
Does anyone start to smell counterfeit yet?
Im guessing the glass tube is some kind of "overload protection" and maybe protects the ballast board (not sure though) in case of the bulb shorting.
It could also be some kind of "lamp start" help.
Really hard to say.
But for sure its not the same look as original Osram (I have bought 3 original Osram PK-L2210U / PK-L2210UP to my DLA-x30 and all look the same (except the metal flapper that was added on v2 and some minor change on v3)
My guess is either:
1. Its a counterfeit lamp that has gone through a lot of work to make it look OEM (even web page name and design)
2. Its a back projection TV Osram lamp - slightly lower wattage (200 vs 220W) and different light element with a spiral wound lamp and no "glass tube" (might be specific for the projector lamp)
Anyone care to have an opinion?
