  • Alternatively, choose a bare bulb without housing if you already have experience with replacing bare bulbs and are willing to deal with the more challenging replacement process.
  • If you do not want to compromise on projection quality and reliability, choose an original manufacturer lamp.
  • If you prefer a cheaper option and projection quality and reliability are not your top priorities, buy a generic lamp.
