Title: (April Fools) Lighting-Gallery.net Joins eoLED, Inc.
Post by: Patrick on March 31, 2014, 08:19:22 PM
(https://www.lighting-gallery.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lighting-gallery.net%2Faprilfool.png&hash=d11af9828f887d54871757e09f4b8fdf)

We are pleased to announce that effective April 1, 2014, Lighting-Gallery.net will become a part of eoLED, Inc.

eoLED is a global supplier of quality LED lighting products. As a division of eoLED, Lighting-Gallery.net will continue to showcase the latest and greatest in lighting technology, and serve as a forum for discussion related to lighting and LEDs.  In addition to member-contributed photos, you will begin to see some pictures uploaded by eoLED staff members.  These sponsored photos will not only cover our costs, but also give you an opportunity to see the best new LED products on the market!  Over time, we will be working with eoLED to improve our site organization.  This will include some changes to the photo and message board categories to better reflect our shift in focus towards LEDs.  We believe this will be a natural transition, considering that the LED is the future of all electric lighting.  

As part of this acquisition, we have a hot(1) deal for members!  We are pleased to offer you 50% off all of our retrofit lamps!  This includes our A19 & BR30 LED bulbs plus LED T8 tubes.  Come back soon for details and ordering information.  Remember that while you will see our full price listed, the lamps are 50% off!  Can it get better?  Yes!  For two special members out there, your lamps are going to be 100% off!  The quality and performance of our products is assured(2).  All of the items we sell are energy efficient, and proudly distributed in the U.S.A.  We are looking forward to working with all of you and hope you enjoy all of the benefits(3) that our LED products have to offer.
  

1.  Hot refers to this deal being special.  If lamp produces excessive heat during operation along with smoke or flame, contact your local fire department.  As with any electrical device, we recommend testing your smoke alarms prior to use and having a fire extinguisher handy before energizing your new eoLED lamp.
2.  Some eoLED products may appear dim or flickery in a low-light environment.  If you are dissatisfied, try switching on other lamps or opening a window shade before contacting eoLED.  Adequate illumination is only guaranteed when operated in a well-lit area.
3.  In addition to the energy savings, one of the many benefits of eoLED products is that they produce no artificial light!

You know, I always had a secret passion for LED's. I never told anyone because I didn't want to embarrass myself especially on Lighting Gallery. I can't wait to try out my new EOLED's! Bring me the dim, flickery action!! ;D

This is interesting.  I really don't like to admit it, but LEDs are taking their place as main lighting everywhere.  I will always love the other lights though.  But, I love all lighting, so I am not one to single anything out (I just don't like take overs).  I am curious to see how good these lights are, I have never used their brand...or any LEDs (bright ones anyway, novelties yes) for that matter. :)

So is this place going to be overrun with LED topics and nothing but LEDs everywhere?

Awesome! It'll be great to see us help be a larger part of the true future of lighting.  ;D Hopefully this will give us some more publicity!

So is this going to be a LED site now? :o

"Lighting-Gallery.net will continue to showcase the latest and greatest in lighting technology, and serve as a forum for discussion related to lighting and LEDs"

"This will include some changes to the photo and message board categories to better reflect our shift in focus towards LEDs"


Sounds like it.

What great news!

I have recently just disposed of most of my old lighting after realising the true benefits of LED lighting.
It took quite a bit of courage to take 4 car loads of my T12s, old mercury lamps and magnetic ballasts down to the dump but now I feel I can move on and embrace the true future of lighting.  ;D

I GET IT!!! ;D ;D ;D

I was going to throw my recently restored 1940 Mitchell double 40 watt fluorescent fixture in the dumpster and replace it with one of those corn cob LED things. ;D

It's about time this site shifted to L.E.D. - fluorescent lighting is so outdated! And who needs 100 CRI flicker-free incandescent light light when you can have 90 CRI headache-causing L.E.D. lighting for 20 times more money? :D

Lawd have mercy!  I was about ready to scrap out all my inefficient, old fluorescent lighting with its loud annoying ballasts and all that blinking at startup for this high quality LED retrofit stuff! Imagine how much power I could be saving when all of those electronics fry within a year!  ;-)
Holy $hit!  This looked so dang serious and I was almost ready to believe it...then was reminded of what today was in a post above...  ;D ;D ;D ::) ::) ::) :o :o :o

Lol even after I uploaded that Philips EOLED the other night I was reading this for the first 30 seconds thinking surely surely not! Then the penny dropped lol very good!

My jaw dropped when I first saw it.  Even made me want to replace my ceiling fan with one of those ones with non-serviceable LED lights.  Took me a few min before I realized what was going on (in my defense it was still technically 3/31 for me).  There've been some good ones on here, but this one takes the cake!   :D :D :D

Good one guys, ya got me.

I saw this this morning and was genuinely upset. I thought "great, some corporate nutjob wants to take over LG and force LEDs on all of us?!" "That's not what LG is about!" I said to my computer screen in frustration. But I thought hey, 50% off LEDs...that's sort of a silver lining. Then I realized what day it was...  ;D ::)

April fools!  For those of you that thought I was serious and were hoping to get a hold of the full-priced yet half-off fire-prone LED lamps I was advertising, I'm sorry to say you'll need to look elsewhere.  I think there are a few good EOL lamps in the gallery that will meet your needs ;)

I'm going to get rid of all my T12 fluorescents now!
I figured this was April Fool's as soon as I saw it!

I must say this was pretty tastefully done and funny! I saw it but said nothing because I had a hunch that was the case. There were some subtle clues there. And if it were necessary to get a source to help us pay the hosting fees, somehow I doubt it would be done that way.

yes good one!
i especially like the tiny text that is all but unreadable even on my dell 30" screen.
had to copy/paste into notepad to read.same tactic slick car dealers used on tv.they can say that the terms were posted in the ad regardless of the fact that no tv of the time could display them in readable form.

Look at the title of the thread again...
I was asking Andy if he really threw all of his T12s, mercury vapor lamps, and magnetic ballasts out.

I think the fact his post was also made on April 1 should answer that .lol.

Original post in the thread has hilarious...especially the micro-print part!

It's probably another name that got killed in the translation. EXAMPLE,,, in the 80's Chevrolet tried to sell their popular american car, the Nova in either Mexico or South America (I can't remember which) and it failed miserably, WHY? SIMPLE, Nova translates in Spanish to No Va which literally means NO GO ! OOPS !  :-[ ::)
