Quality of eiko, Satco, Cooper, venture, and faux Westinghouse lamps « on: February 17, 2019, 03:45:13 AM » Author: HomeBrewLamps
What are the quality levels of each brand of modern HID lamp?

I'm especially interested in eiko and Satco but all of these brands are are of curiosity to me because I'm considering perhaps buying some modern lamps at some point..

I already know Sylvania and Eye are supposedly the best modern lamps but I'm still curious.

I have a Satco in intermittent use and it works quite well. It has a standard quartz arc tube and a lower CRI than the ceramic ones, but still does the job lighting the shed. The warmup phase is blue instead of greenish-clear-MV, but otherwise works well.
