Original = The genuine original manufacturers complete lamp module. It usually comes in the original manufacturers box and is the exact same lamp that would be supplied from the manufacturer. (That's where we get most of ours.) Warranty 90 days.
Hybrid = The complete projector lamp module that houses the original manufacturers bulb inside (usually Osram or Philips). These lamps cost less than the original, but use the same bulb and most have an extended warranty of up to 1 year.
Compatible or Generic= The complete projector lamp module that is made be someone other than the original manufacturer. They work and last the same as the others and are the least expensive option. Warranty is 120 days.
Bare Bulbs = Bare bulbs are offered on some models. These lamps are the original Osram, Philips or Ushio bulbs that the projector manufacturer installed when the projector was new. Although these lamps may be the least expensive option, there are additional steps involved because the bulb will need to be seated in your old lamp module. Questions? Please call us @ 866-470-9877.
