Anti-Pjerrot I got a 2 x 39W T5 unictronic from clalight

Lorenceo Dont buy Osram ballasts, they put out heaps of electrical interfearance that screw with your TV reception. (the ones I had did anyway)
I highly recomend Workhorse Ballasts.

duck I use and have both 54watt and 28 watt T5's, just ask for daylight tubes from a lighting store.
Here's a pic with the details

TheOtherGeoff you can never go wrong with osram when it comes to lighting. they make some of the best and most true colored bulbs. coralife also makes some nice t5s. im very happy with mine as long as their 6700K doesnt yellow/green out like their power compacts do.
