That inverter looks like the one CompUSA is using in there Demo Mod box.

They need a class in how to HIDE things. It is on the window side of the HD Cage.

wow... 10/10 -- i haven't noticed a perfect review from GT until now... sunbeam doesn't sell directly to consumers, though, right?

Raciel a lot of places sell Sunbeam now. KD Computers has just about all of the versions, including multi colored.

I got some sunbeams last week(red and blue)  I would not give them a ten.  Tho, they are very nice.
The stripes stop some of the light as does the thick return wire running down the inside of the tube.  The PCmods light has only a very thin exposed wire.  Much cleaner IMHO.  I paid 4 times as much for that light, too!
The color of the blue is not as good as PCmods.
I paid 9+shipping for both lights and the sweet inverter from Xoxide's Sunday sale.  Worth it for only the inverter.

i am getting my CCFL from frozencpu.com, it is bl00.

Although i like the bi and tri-coloured sunbeam CCFLs, I have my  heart set on the bl00.

If I win the giveaway, of course i will use the CCFL, and my bl00 one.

My only beef is that I hear the bi and tri-coloured CCFLs have a more dull shade of each colour, you get a much bluer blue from PCMODS CCFL and other single coloured CCFLs.

I raise my glass to the inverter, its the one thing that makes those CCFLs stand out above all others

actually i have taken a few of the sunbeams apart, the stripes actually increase the brightness.  as far as the thick wire, its actually an optical illusion, its the same as the wire outside the light and its actually the same size as the wires without insulation.

I have CCFL's from PCMods, BG Micro, Lamps Electronics, AZZO Computers, The Light Guy, and Sunbeam and I like the sunbeam blue color the best but to each their own.

As far as retail price that is up to the retailer as is the sale price. I know the wholesale cost to the retailers for a large number of the retail outlets and the deal you got from xoxide was very good.

Sunbeam will be coming out with a non-insulated wire version soon btw as well as as twice as bright as the current 18k lamps.

As far as my review, out of the 30+ CCFL's i have, Sunbeam are the best in quality and color and thats why i give them a 10 :)

I wonder if PCmods has a new supplier or something, think ill get a couple of them to check out the color :)
