LEDs replaced LEDs in the cinemall mall

LEDs replaced LEDs in the cinemall mall

I've seen these LED panels, when I was in the Cinemall mall. When trying to remember what is the fixture that layed here, that these panels replaced, I've been shocked that it was this one .
This is the first time I'm see LED fixtures being replaced by another LED fixtures (The former were already worn out after less than 2-3 years).

When will they learn that these are rubbish and that a good Fluorescent on magnetic ballast would last much better, and they should not of removed the PL down lights in the first place.

Never anymore. The problem is, meanwhile all good magnetic fluorescents disappeared :

The largest manufacturer (who used to make some of the best magnetic lanterns at its time) claims now to be actually a LED technology leader, the most fluorescent thing they do is T5 - And those have great optics and give great light (as can be expected from this manufacturer), but they use Helvar electronics ballasts, that last about 6..8 years and thats as far as a European ballast goes

The second largest went bankrupt last year

The third went bankrupt somewhere in the beginning of the 2000s

The fourth still makes exact knockoffs of the 1st one's lantern designs (i have both, pictures coming soon), but to a somewhat lower quality standard. They are still fair but i dont see them around much for some reason

The rest are crappy imports from China that will last about the same as the LEDs anyway

It is sad that the lighting field in Israel degrades. I think that the bans in Israel is harder, and bans all of the old lighting forms. Every new business that opens today, always have LED lighting. Today, there are almost no HID or magnetic fluorescent of any form in the Cinemall mall (Including its shops), only LED and T5. The lighting levels in the parking lot, degradated, as all of the LED tubes, are dimmed, where part of the LED is dimmers than the rest, and they are generally EOL (As the LED failure mechanism is the same as MV: Degradaing in performance while consuming the same amount of power).

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.

It has nothing to do with bans - the old lights are not banned, its just the peeps that are brainwashed away from them, and lack of availability in general (they are available mostly in the Chinese form)
