The lamp supplied by the original projector manufacturer, identical to the one installed in the original projector. It gives the best performance in terms of brightness, life, etc. but tends to be the most expensive offering and often has the shortest warranty (typically 3 months).
A Diamond Lamp combines the identical bulb installed in the Original Manufacturer’s (OEM) lamp with a new cage. The exacting standards put into component selection and manufacture means a Diamond Lamp will deliver identical performance to the OEM lamp but at a noticeably lower price, supported by an extended 6-month warranty.
Philips not only supply bulbs to OEM lamps and Diamond Lamps, but also manufacture a selection of their own lamps using the same Philips bulb. Similar to Diamond Lamps in design they tend to be more expensive and are supported by a 6-month conditional warranty.
A Smart Lamp is a Premier Compatible Lamp – the only one available on the market.
