Yep.  They only lose 10% over their life, but once they reach that point, 
they stay out.

The Chroma 50 and Triton im my experience arew about the same brightness, but 
the Chromas have more green, so they may appear brighter than the Tritons.  
And the tubes that came with my ALL-Glass hood were in no way Tritons.  Too 
much red, not enough brightness.
