    My one mh started going on and off soon after I bought it. The globes was fitted in proper light fittings recently and I suppose that the problem got worse because of heat inside the fitting. The globes is 150 venture. Should I get one of the same or can I go to something else while I will be spending money? It would be great to hear where I can get what and also prices. Is it ok if I ask sponsors to give prices here or if not to pm me some prices?

    Have you checked the light fitting? Sometimes the springy ends do not make proper contact.

    why dont you try our sponsors.BLV is a good globe,but needs to be supplemented with some actintics to give you a nice spectrum.some people have a had crisp white colour without supplementing them with actinics

    I gave in and bought a 150w 15000k globe from my favourite sponsor and it is so bright it almost seems blue. (Guess who)
