Good all round fluorescent
6 Aug 2014
By JohnnyDoItAll

"Bright, efficient, smart and tough.
Great high frequency electronic fluorescent.
When you can get these at this price why bother buying switch start ones. They look neat as well (provided you don't mind being able to see the tube). I use them even where the IP rating is not required - especially where there is a risk of them getting hit by something as the diffuser is much tougher than the conventional ones. Also they start instantly almost every time.

Why pay more?

"I looked at these compared to the Thorn versions. These are excellent lamps, easy to install (it says you need 2 people, but I did it on my own) and good looking.
Just put 2 in my workshop in addition to similar 10 year old lamps and the instant start is impressive. Can't comment yet on reliability.
Come with a couple of wire hooks which I assume are for chain hanging.
About to order some more!"

"bought two of these for my garden shed.
One worked OK, but the other refused to work.
Investigation found the tube connector wire loose.
Sharpen up on quality control LAP"

Quality Control

"Of the two units purchased, one failed to function initally as one of the wires to tube connection had not been inserted resulting in much wasted time."
