Where did you find pre-heat fluorescent fixtures, the look cool, when they startup, and blink happy.

I like HID lamps, especially the High Pressure Sodium lights, they have a orange color, which is actually my favorite color! Smiley  High Pressure Sodium High Pressure Sodium High Pressure Sodium

Hi There

In Australia, fluorescent fixtures are predominately pre-heat. We have the opposite problem, very difficult to find rapid and instant-start fixtures here!

Preheat is most likely popular over here due to the simpler wiring, starters and ballasts being common and easily swapped over. With 240 volts just about any available fluorescent tube can easily be started by preheat. Most common size in Australia is 4 foot length which is either T8 36W or T12 40W for older fittings.
