Re: [APD] anyone running T5's?
T8s were designed to be used in office lighting -- to fill
the need for energy conservation and less mercury. That
huge commerical market is largely responsible for T8s
becoming so inexpensive.
T5HOs, might make it into offices, but they aren't meant as
T8 replacements are they?
