Sunbeam Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp Review - Conclusion

Sunbeam Technology are a relatively new competitor to the cold cathode lighting kit business starting manufacturing in 1998. The Taiwanese company sent us in a couple of their new lighting kits for testing. Does this new competitor have what it takes to compete with lighting products from the likes of PCMods and PC Case Gear? Read on as Cameron "Mr.Tweak" Wilmot gives us an answer regarding the CCFL kits from Taiwan based Sunbeam Technology!

Conclusion

 

I was suitably impressed with the total package I received from the folks at Sunbeam, with only one fault in the unboxed inverter which is going to be remedied in future revisions, anyway. Everything from the light output quality to the overall workmanship is something the Taiwanese company should be proud of. It's certainly a product I have no hassles recommending. It will be finding its own permanent place in my personal system before much longer.

 

Unfortunately there was no price listed anyway on the Sunbeam website for the light kits, but just simply an order page with phone number and e-mail address for those interested in buying a kit - I'd imagine it would be for bulk orders only though. There is an "Under Construction" notice on the website, so maybe they are building their own section where you can buy direct.

 

If you're on the market for a new (and I'd imagine fairly cheap) cold cathode fluorescent lamp solution, a Sunbeam product is definitely one you should consider - If you can manage to find one for sale anywhere.

 

Pros

 

- Solid All-round Workmanship

 

- Vibrant Colours

 

- High Light Output

 

- Color Strips for Identification (we presume)

 

Cons

 

- Unboxed Inverter

 

- Retail Packaging would have been nice

 

Rating - 9/10
