I think this is a buying fraudulence. I think this site sells products without a license.
I don't think if these products are from GE USA. They looks like unbranded products to me.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Jasco bought GE Home Electric Products in 2004, though they were already marketing some GE branded products prior to that acquisition. So, some but not all of the the products Jasco distributes today were at one time made by or for General Electric. I have a few non-Jasco GE under cabinet type fixtures that were made prior to 2004. The older plug-in fixtures at least came with real GE lamps and ballasts. I don't know how the quality of the newer units compare.

I find brand licensing to be rather deceptive. When you buy a product, you should be able to expect that the company who's name is on the label will stand behind it. Brand licensing is worse than contract manufacturing in this regard. With contract manufacturing, the company who's name is on the label is still responsible for the warranty, support, quality assurance, etc. This is not true when it comes to brand licensing. If you buy one of Jasco's "GE" products expecting GE to back it up, you're in for a surprise. Now, Jasco might be a fine company and for all I know, they provide excellent support. But it's still misleading to put another company's name on the box.

Westinghouse is even worse than GE in this regard. CBS has licensed out the Westinghouse brand to a number of different companies, none of which have anything to do with the original Westinghouse. People buying Westinghouse products may be surprised to find out that not only are they not affiliated with the old Westinghouse, but different products with the Westinghouse name are backed by completely different licensees, that have don't even have any affiliation to each other.

I browsed through Jasco webpage and I see that their offerings include blacklights too.

If it's going to be a China made fixture with a GE logo and a China Lighting lamp, I don't see why I shouldn't just buy a Lights of America.

What about the GE branded consumer lamps though, especially the China made ones? Are they GE contract manufactured, or simply private branded for GE China Light lamps?

Those CH lighting T5s seem to last ok from what I've seen, just run them on preheat and they will be fine!

Linear fluorescent will never lose to LED!
I am not Anti-LED, as I have some in use at my house.
