I know of a few people who have used T5Ho light Fixtures from a chinese company, All are really unhappy, the ECGand the lamps used in these fixtures was of a very bad quality, the fixture failed in 3 out of 4 cases within 6 months of usage. It was very sad for these fixtures were purchased from singapore and to avail of the warrenty it had to be shipped back to singapore. These people ended up spending more money and time in sourcing out the ecg and lamps here, which incresed the cost of the fixture by approx 50%.
IMHO it's simple if you go for a cheaper product the quality is going to be compramised. This thumb rule i guess holds good for eveything!
Sudipto, have you tried convincing a consumer to pay a couple of hundred bucks more for a light just because it has a higher Kelvin? Â
It does'nt make sense buddy, it will be difficult for even sylvania/ Havell to compete with the cheap chinese products and unless people realise that quality comes at a price it is not a very wise option even for a multinational company to market products that have a limited demand.
Aqua I know it too well and couldn't agree more with you. We live in a society where parents spend 25k to buy latest video games gizmos from Japan but not a few hundred on hobbies. We have BMWs being sold here but not ......... (I could make a long list of what is not available here but I would let it pass) Well. Let's hope for a better tomorrow. My original posting had more sarcasm in it than any real intention which was evidently missed by most.
