What is the best RED ccfl?
« on: August 22, 2002, 10:39:00 PM »

What is the best red ccfl that you can buy and who sells it? I don't care about price as long as it is red(red red red)!!!

I recently bought a purple(not UV) and a red one from case-mod.com. They were one of the few places that had purple ones and the purple one is awesome. The only problem is that the red one is more pink than red!! I can handle a purple ccfl but not a pink one!!

PLEASE HELP!!!

DON'T buy it from thecardcooler.com (or cardcooler.com, can't remember the URL).  I got mine from there and it is completely pink, not even pinkish red.

I am not sure about best, but the least expensive can be had from a company called SVCompucycle.

I am using their yellow CCFL and the build quality is acceptable and the brightness is good.  Color quality for the yellow one is pretty good as well, I am not sure what the red looks like tho.
For $15 you won't beat the price tho.

Go with sunbeam, the other "red" ccfls look pink becuase the luminosity of them fades the red out and so you get pink. However you can try hooking a rheostat to control the color OR get a Dark Red (Regular red give you orange, I've tried) Lee Filter and wrap it around the ccfl. Might work better with a white ccfls...I would try but lazyness has always won.

Is ordering from sunbeam the only way to get them or is there a site that sells them that I just haven't noticed yet??

my neighbor solved his pink problem by wrapping a dark red Gel (one of those squares of plastic put in front of a stage light to change its color) on his. worked great, didnt dim the light and changed it to a nice red.

Bah, Rosco makes better gel than Lee!!!  You won't notice the difference on a CCFL, but put sheets in front of a 6,000 watt bulb and the colour in the Lee fades a lot faster than the Rosco... :)
