Can You SEE me now? WOW - Very Bright
on January 2, 2014
I am becoming a real big fan of T-8 fluorescent lamps and wish it did not cost so much to replace existing T-12 fixtures. The initial cash layout is somewhat for that type of replacement but these lamps are so cost effective when I get years of use from them. After over 3 years the first two have not shown any chance of dropping output and when the switch goes on the bulb is right there with zero delay. I use these in my garage to use as my workstation area and expect high Lumens and by golly that is exactly what I get: a gaggle of Lumens. That special place I sponsored as the holder of reading glasses has been transferred to a spot that can hold more junk. Glasses are not required by me with all the light output and that is nice. While the 4 foot long lamp is ½ the length of the previous fixture the output is far better and that is because I am using the same amount of lighting lamps but with far more wattage. No flickering. No hesitation. Just hit the switch and the lights turn on. Would and will re-buy when required but with 12 lamps and a 8 tube demand the odds are slim that I will be in the market soon.
