Has anyone used lamps other than Ushio (such as Osram) in Xebex Supersol N IV & V lamphouses?
I have been getting mixed responses on compatabililty.
I am currently using UXL3000 HK-O's in both.
I have been asked to use Osram lamps and their equal is smaller in physical size.

Thanks
John.

If you've had great success with Ushios, why would you want to think on changing? Ushios/Christies have a great reputation over here in the States...

Yeah I found out from both here and another call to our tech guy that those particular lamps I needed would not fit without adapters or modifictaions made. Will stick with Ushio.

Thank you for the replys.
