Original Module (OEM)

An original module (or projector lamp as you wish) is the same lamp as is included with your projector when you bought it. In most cases we can deliver this original module but it's not uncommon that these products have a shortage and thus a long delivery time. Also, original modules are often very expensive. The warranty for the original modules is 3 months.

LightWorld Module

A LightWorld module consists of an original manufacturer’s lamp, a high quality cage and a neutral packaging. Seven manufacturers are considered to be producers of original projector lamps. They are: Philips (UHP or TOP), Osram (P-VIP or VIP-R), Ushio (UMPRD, NSH or NSHA), Iwasaki (HSCR), Matsushita / Panasonic (HS), Epson (UHE) and Phoenix (SHP). In comparison with original modules (OEM), the LightWorld modules provide the same performance in terms of color, lifetime and brightness but excel in price and availability. Note that the used original lamp can differ from the brand type that was originally used in your projector (for example Philips instead of Osram or the other way around), but in terms of performance the lamp is absolutely identical to the OEM module. The warranty for the LightWorld modules is 4 months.

Projector Lamp Module

The projector lamp module consists of a high-quality lamp, a high quality lamp casing and a neutral packaging. These projector lamps modules are produced by Taiwanese manufacturers specialized in the production of projector lamps. These manufacturers also produce on behalf of A - brands and the lamp production meets the ISO9001 standards. It is a reliable and economically attractive alternative, with good quality proven through the years. In addition, especially for the older types of projectors, the availability and the price are often a very attractive option. We supply almost all projector lamps from our own stock. The warranty for the projector lamp modules is 4 months.

Original Bulb Only

Besides the usual projector lamp modules we also offer "Original Bulb Only" lamp options if available. An original bulb only is the lamp without the housing. The advantage of an original bulb only is usually the price, availability and the environment (you will re-use the old lamp housing). Before ordering an original bulb only please make sure that the old lamp housing can be re-used and has not been damaged due to previous lamp failure. When in doubt you are of course welcome to contact us for assistance. The warranty for the original bulbs is 3 months.


QualityLamps stands for quality. Each projector lamp we sell comes with at least 3 months guarantee (our QualityLamp modules and projector lamp modules are covered by a 4 month guarantee). If the unlikely event happens that a lamp fails within this period, please contact usimmediately and we will replace it for you. Read more about warranty.


Each lamp is protected by foam plastic and is packed in a cardboard box so that it is optimally protected when it is sent to you. In preparation for dispatch each lamp is also packed in an extra cardboard delivery box for extra security.
