I wasn't saying the Triton bulbs aren't good.  I use them also. I was
saying the specs you guoted didn't align with measurements I have made.

I'm sure they are quite competent at making measurements (although they are
probably more concerned with lumens than lux).  I'm also quite sure that
they make quite a few different measurements and that some might not relate
well to the particular application under discussion.  And I bet they are
quite careful to quote statistically significant numbers that were gathered
under carefully controlled conditions, unlike our application.  

Just out of curiosity, where did the Triton specs you quoted come from?
