Sure beats any all-glass/co. lightstrips
I'm curious about the (equal 500W) remark. Is that supposed to mean it equals a 500W incandescent bulb (which wouldn't be a very useful statistic anyways)?

Any photos or additional data? How did you mount it? What type of tube? With 65W I expect a PC, and for $14 that's a fine deal if the colour is nice.

Oh, and of course, where did you get it?
