I installed this new bulb after the projector warned that the new one had reached the end of its life. A couple weeks after installing it, I noticed a weird discoloration in part of the picture. Over time, it got worse and worse, so I did some research. It turns out this is relatively common with counterfeit projector bulbs for the Optoma HD20. The housing they ship the bulb in is missing a special IR coating on the glass. This coating ostensibly protects the plastic optical lens in the projector from being exposed to too much heat.
I found a replacement lens for $65 on another site, and replacing it corrected the issue. Fortunately, I saved the housing from my original bulb, and I swapped this lamp into that housing. I hope that was indeed the issue. Time will tell.
Three stars...decent lamp, but we had a few issues. I am not overly savvy when it comes to projector bulbs, so please forgive me!
First of all, the title of the item said it came with an Osram bulb inside the housing. This is *not* an Osram bulb. Color me disappointed-our last Osram bulb lasted for around 4000 hours and did really well!
Second, we could NOT use the included housing...or at least the glass that was on the included housing. Upon installation our picture was *really* wonky...we switched out to the old bulb/housing, everything was just fine. There was a noticeable difference between the glass in the old housing and the glass that came with this housing. We switched the glass only, put the new bulb with the included housing in to the projector, and the screen was beautiful, absolutely no distortion like we had when the other glass was in the housing. I do recall another reviewer saying not to use the included housing, as there was some sort of coating missing on the glass...I am a believer...the glass seemed to be the issue.
We are watching this bulb extra carefully, as some have had some serious issues with these bulbs getting extremely hot and even causing fires. I assumed it was because they must've gotten a knock-off bulb from their seller, but I paid no attention to these reviews because per the title, I believed we were getting an Osram bulb... I will update my review as needed, but as of right now, we have about 50 hours on the bulb and all seems well.
You get what you pay for...we paid significantly less than a factory replacement lamp, but had I known we were *not* getting an Osram bulb, we would not have purchased. Having already had to return a faulty lamp from another seller this week, we opted not to return because we didn't want the hassle of returning. As of right now, I'm not entirely sure I could recommend this because it was not as it was advertised, and we had to swap out the glass from an old housing in order for this to work.
Edit: Well, It isn't an Osram bulb, since the word Osram is printed on their bulbs and this bulb doesn't have any printing on the bottom. Besides that, the bulb was purchased as a spare, so after testing it, I put it away. I started using it past the warranty period. That turned out to be a mistake since after 300 hours the bulb wasn't as bright, and now at just over 400 hours the bulb is giving out.
My HD20 projector is having trouble turning the bulb on. So I'm leaving the projector on day and night now to maybe get more use out of the bulb. If I turn it off it may not go back on. I had a lot of trouble getting it to stay on again this last time, now that it's staying on I hope to keep it that way. v My original Osram bulb ran for over 4000 hours with no trouble, till it finally gave out. I have another original Osram bulb, and when this one goes I will insert that one. If I have trouble turning that one on, then it's my projectors fault, but if it starts properly, then it's definitely this bulbs fault. I will edit this again after I replace this bulb with my second spare. I[m pretty sure it's the bulb and not the projector, but we will see.

Turns out these fake bulbs run much hotter then the normal HD20 ones. A dark spot appeared in my projector and over time it became massive.Read more
