If you have a projector than you are using a projector lamp module. Inside that module is an Osram or Philips bulb.
The bulbs made by these companies are generally considered "original" bulbs. Sometimes that word is tossed around a lot to convince people they are buying a genuine original lamp module when they are not. The bulb itself is only one component of the lamp module.
OK, Here is the breakdown of the lamp code and how you know if you are getting a real original bulb (not module). We will use the codes UHP 180-150 1.0 P22 and P-VIP 300/1.3 E22.5 as examples
