[APD] Lighting

So here;s something that might be of great interest to ya'll out there 
on the list - that is if some of you wanna do some homework.

We had a sales rep come into our store today - selling lightbulbs.  
Hah - little did he know what he was gettin into being used to selling 
to regular retail outlets and offices and such.  Needless to say after 
several minutes discussion on light color temp and such which i wont 
bore you with... they claim to sell a SO Flourscent bulb that is 
GUARANTEED to hold 95% of its origional spectrum and lumen output for 
_____ 5 YEARS _____

the bulbs are VERY pricy (wholesale about average to what you would see 
as standard retail for lets say.. Hagen or All  Glass brand bulbs)  but 
i'm still curious.

The bulbs are a 5100K Full spec lamp, available in T8, T10 and T12 - 
they also have screw in compacts available, regular PC, and a whole 
host of other bulbs including HO/VHO.

Sounds oh so tempting.. but i'm still skeptical.

IF anyone has heard of these lamps or the company i'd be interested to 
hear some feedback from yall on it.

here's their website
