Buying Genuine Epson Projector Lamps Online

Epson is one of a number of projector brands for which it is possible to
buy low-cost projector lamps online. Gone are the days of ordering Epson
projector lamps from under-stocked retail stores, or ordering by post and
telephone and having to wait for days. Now, you can log straight on to an
internet store and pick from hundreds of products – usually, with next day
delivery. Such stores significantly undercut retail store prices, since
they don’t have the overheads that the retail stores do.

There are also companies that specialise in supplying projector bulbs of
most brand types, including Epson projector bulbs, and many of these
companies deal exclusively online – cutting their costs still further and
allowing even higher savings. They pare marketing and packaging costs down
to the bone – passing the savings on to the consumer. Of course, if you
choose to buy alternative projector lamps rather than the originals, you
should be careful that their lamps are not dangerous fakes. Genuine Epson
projector lamps are sourced from the OEMs (original equipment
manufacturers).

People often ask: What’s the difference between Epson projector lamps and
Epson projector bulbs? The answer is nothing – but they are different to
normal bulbs. Replacing a projector bulb isn’t just a matter of popping a
new one in the socket, like a light bulb. The key component is an ARC light
(the same sort used in football stadiums). This is filled with mercury
vapour at extremely high pressure – a dangerous combination. The light is
ignited by an electric spark and is then maintained at a lower voltage.

Mercury vapour bulbs are complex pieces of technology, with a variety of
electrical components. The most important of these are ballasts which,
after the initial arc has been fired, control the quantity of current being
fed through the bulb. The bulb may also contain a starter, a third
electrode and a thermal switch.

The vapour pressure has to be exact, and the ballasts calibrated very
precisely, to ensure optimum safety and efficiency. Mercury vapour bulbs
are fragile and easily broken, meaning there’s danger from both flying
glass and escaped mercury. It’s also easy to damage the lamp and/or
projector if you try to replace the ARC bulb yourself. For this reason,
projector lamps are created as an integral unit, the bulb sealed behind a
reflector which protects the user from heat, mercury and UV radiation (the
heat inside Epson projector bulbs exceeds that of the sun!)

Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous online retailers selling poor quality
fakes. Often branded to look like the manufacturer’s original, they are
usually recons, put together in sweatshops well away from the strict
quality controls that Epson and their OEMs insist upon. So be very wary of
online stores selling unfeasibly cheap Epson projector lamps. As you can
see, manufacture is a highly specialised process, labour intensive and on a
small scale.

If you’re on a budget, use an online store that supplies original Epson
projector lamps – and is an authorised Epson supplier.
