Satco 175w clear merc « on: September 23, 2006, 01:14:02 PM » Author: J-Frog
I found this today: Satco 175w clear mercury lamp

Who makes Satco lamps?  Or are they their own company?

On the picture of that page looks the lamp more to an HPS lamp.

yes they do that sometimes...because most people don't really pay attention to details...maybe the web designer couldn't tell the difference between HPS and MV...but they are selling MV....

I have seen some lightbulb sites do that......
like selling a MV but showing a MH picture.......and stuff like that

Yeah the photos are meant for examples only and often do not represent the actual product. It annoys me also.

BTW, Satco mercury lamps were orginally sourced from Philips. Not too long ago they began importing their mercs from China and the quality appears to be way down past the drain. LOL! Satco doesn't make anything, they just get everything from outside suppliers.
