Sadly your only option are L*Ds. I'll reccomend to you FSL and Great vaule L*D bulbs, have a good quality, and a decent lifespan. I put many halogen bulbs two moths ago, and still not slap from parents.  LOL

L*Ds may look cheap to operate, but when the L*D effects starts to appear in you the doctor will not be cheap. A clear example is the effect of the excessive blue light in your eyes.

We actually have Great Value LED lamps (bought on clearance) and when testing them one was dead out of the box! Angry When I turned it on, it did nothing, but the driver got hotter then even a working one!

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

"Great Value" and L*D in the same sentence is the definition of the word oxymoron.

That's actually quite good, here we are paying around 70 per month.
Thats very good price if you are using A/Cs and electric heaters, but if not, that's a bit expensive. Pleople who use those things here pays about 100 pounds, and pleople who runs small stores with many refrigerators can easily pay about 400 pounds. The KWh here costs about CLP$120

I don't know where you live, but L*Ds from that brand here are ok.

Picked up a few things from a Goodwill, a preheat F15T8 BLB fixture with bulb (used, lamp works), a 3-pack of APP 23w tri-tube CFLs (late 90's to early 2000s, NOS) and a 2-pack of GE flame shape 40w incandescents (late 2000s?, NOS made in the USA).

Installed my 3 in 1 socket splitter (with my 23w GE Self Ballasted Metal Halide Par38's) into my detached garage above my motorcycle.
Took out my Programmed Start 28w GE CFL, and put that into my bedroom ceiling fan for now. The CFL is in my room temporarily.
I really gotta find a good place for that CFL...

At my friend's motorcycle garage where I originally kept my bike, he and I replaced an F96T12 HO lamp that burned
out in one of the two High Output fixtures in that garage... the last remaining GE 95w lamp. We replaced it with a cold temp F96T12
110 watt lamp from Sylvania. Since the garage is filled with expensive, heavy motorcycles, it took both of us to replace the lamp.
But now all four HO lamps are 110w. Full mercury?... I don't know.

Funny story:
My friend is unfortunately a "know it all" type of person. As soon as he flipped the switch after the install, he looked for a second and
said, "I don't like how it started." Then I said, "What do you mean?" And then he said, "See how it flickered before it starts?"
Me being the lighting enthusiast I am, I then said, "Bruh that's what it's suppose to do. These are all Rapid Start ballasted fixtures."
Then he pointed to the other HO fixture and turned the lights back off. He then said, "See when I turn these back on, that one fixture
there starts up right when I flip the switch. See? Watch... boom." Not surprisingly, he quickly realized that fixture was doing the
same thing. haha... he gave in and we went back to talking about motorcycles.
He's done this before though, with the previous GE 95w lamp that EOLed. I told him which lamp was burned out, and he immediately assumes I'm
wrong and thinks the opposite lamp burned out, and even explains why.  Tears of joy

Heh, you should offer him one of those Accupro electronic HO ballasts that'll instant start the lamp. The 8ft HO in my garage used to have one of those ballasts. I swapped it out with a older magnetic Advance.

@Joseph_125, to be honest... I'm really thinking about taking BOTH of those HO fixtures. Both. I'm having talks with
my other best friend about getting me some help in terms of purchasing a home. (Her Grandpa is a realtor) ((She just bought
a home with her husband who is also a best friend, and she is already offering her downstairs fluorescent fixtures to me!))
Once I buy a home, my other next step would be to take those HO fixtures in the bike garage, and replace them with other reliable fixtures.
Since the owner of that bike garage is awesome, there is a high chance that I'd be walking out with those HO fixtures. (With his help
of course)
So yeah I don't really want to replace the ballasts in those HO fixtures just yet... because soon they *could* be mine.
