I saw a box of FB34T12/941/SS/6 at a ReStore made in Canada.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

I can tell those lamps will likely perform worse than a clump of dirt. They just look cheap. and that lumen rating is worse than any older F34, eve nan F30 can beat that

I don't have any experience with US/Canadian FL but all the Chinese lamps for European market I have (whatever they look like) perform decently.

Its just that usually things from china are not high quality and with even usa and canada made lamps going downhill theres not much hope.

Do you have F40 T12s from china? and you say they work decent? hows the lumens and is there any issues with mercury like starting dim in the middle or at one end and flickering. Like if they are decent I would for sure change my view

This might be a stupid question but, did Sylvania get bought out by ledvance or did they change names? Because I see Sylvania on the tube?

@Lightingguy1994: F40 T12s disappeared from shops here long ago. Chinese T8s for European market (Osram/Sylvania) are bright and reliable enough IMO.
The starting dim in the middle is only a problem with new lamps, disappearing after a few minutes.

T8s usually do better with reduced mercury because the smaller tube diameter

Ledvance must have bought or leases the rights to the name, because on the side of the packages it says ledvance

Plant closings and consolidations are inevitable due to the changing market. That's the explanation given by Ledvance and others and while it's largely true, it also seems like manufacturers use declining demand as an excuse to offshore production. Any idea what factory produced these?

Ledvance is the general lighting business Osram Sylvania divested. It is wholly owned by the Chinese firm MLS. From what I understand Ledvance is still based in Germany and largely run by former Osram employees. Until the recent announcement, it didn't seem like the ownership by MLS had changed much, but it does feel like they are beginning to integrate more tightly.

They are crying that they have to close because of falling demand... which unfortunately is true whether i like it or not because of LED products, but if they put in more effort into their bulbs, they would have had stood a better chance. Their lamps were too crappy. Phosphors were not even, the lumens crept lower and lower and there was barely any mercury to run even an F4T5 tube properly...not to mention the high price of $14 for a pair. It looks like Philips is the last man standing in this race

Like it or not, we must support Philips. Their quality is still better than most in the last decade and they are our only hope for many of the fluorescent technologies we still love.
