I was today at my local home improvement enter and I met my good friend - an electrics isle worker, I always chat with him, he quiet a nice guy and he gave me many lamps that were due to dumpster or whatever, and as I met him he presented me with this case of tubes, and gave me it for free!!! He said that these tubes were taken out from shelves because 'they were defective' - as usual, mercury starvation. He said that customers were bringing them back and said that they start very dim and need long time to heat up. He asked if I wanted them, and I said absolutely yes! Yes, they start really dim but they reach full brightness at 3 minute mark and give off really nice light. I fell in love with this color! Cool White DeLuxe is my now favorite color!

I think our James is quiet familiar with these tubes, probably came from the factory he works in ;D

Nice lamps! Cool that you got them free!

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