Man what a beauty. The shiny silver arc tube ends and everything else. So sweet little lamps that are not to be taken lightly. Surprisingly bright.

Awesome!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Cool Dave! (I got me some too, just haven't lit 'em up.)

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

do you have any of those Eye 50w clear lamps to compare these to? I'm curious to know if the color and light output is any different. I actually didn't know that other manufacturers besides Eye made clear 50w lamps until this year.

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

Do you have the proper ballast for this?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

I have a 50w H46 Advance Postline ballast, and a 75w H43 version. The 50 watt one has 277 OCV, but the 75 watt one has 240 OCV. Both are NPF, 120v input only.
