Glass and mercury projector lamps operate at temperatures of 8,000 degrees Celsius and pressures of 200 atmospheres. Some require an ignition voltage of up to 20Kv. With this knowledge, cheap copy lamps start to sound rather worrying and their quality can have devastating consequences.
All lamps contain a bulb and a cage with a connector, but that doesn't mean they are all the same. Very different practices in component selection, manufacturing techniques, assembly and testing start to explain why an Original Manufacturer's (OEM) lamp may be four times the price of a cheap copy lamp.
Our extensive experience as a lamp specialist means we can guarantee that a Smart Choice Lamps use quality components and practices to produce a premium compatible lamp.
