My idol is Mylene Farmer, deal with it.


Is it worth it? « on: April 11, 2019, 12:05:43 PM » Author: vytautas_lamps
So, I am presented with a deal that I am not sure is it worth taking: One person presented me with a deal of such: 16 NOS never used duro-test powertwist 4ft tubes in original box, but the person wants 55 euros from me, approx 70 dollars for it. Is it worth taking the deal? enlighten me about my financial choices.  Huh? Smiley Thank you all very much!

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

due to rarity of Duro Test Power twist.  16 lamps 55 euros is not too bad actually.  these lamps will never be made again. also not every one here on LG own such lamps  it comes out to less than 3.50 euros  apeice.

These were common many years ago, now as rare as hen's teeth go and buy them if still there would be my advice.
