It's really cool to see lights like these in such consumer style packaging!
And I wish I could see shops with 'specialist' lamps stocked openly on shelves such as this. I suppose perhaps it used to be more like that in the UK as well, when HiD was still a more common thing for household wallpacks and such, but it was before my time =/

I've only once seen HID lamps in a retail shop here, and that was back in the 60's in Ilford, near to where I grew up. I went into an electrical shop to get some bits & pieces, and lo! they had a few 160W blended mercury lamps, but nothing else of note.

It'll be all right in the end, and if it isn't all right, it isn't the end :love:

In my case, Philips was smart to put a see through window to see the actual lamp inside. Which is unique to see that.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

Probably helps with that "repackage and return the EOL lamp" crap that lots of people like to do.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Why are there two sizes of Philips 400w MH lamps?
(one is more expensive)

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, except for LED, which I classify as a disease.

One is an ED28, and the other is an ED37.

I know, but does the size matter if the specs are no different?

It does when it comes to correct arctube placement. Try running an ED28 where an ED37 is required...lumen distribution is way off. (I've seen this done by lazy maintenance personnel, with lousy results.)
As to the price difference, that probably has to do with demand.
