    Derrick,

    Suggest buying Hitachi EBT instead. Cost around $4.50 but very good. Saw another National EBT too, but no experince with them.
    Cheers!!

    HEBT - Hitachi Extra Bright Tubes

    Philips is the normal ones which cannot compare to arcadia.

    Kel,
    You can get the HEBT from Kim Siah (refer to earlier posting). They do come in 2ft, 3ft and 4ft. Call them first if they have stock before going down.

    Ther is another place that carries them too at Kelantan Rd. but forget the shop name liao.
    Cheers!!

    Would like to thanks Sherwin for the address.

    Would also like to comment on the AEC 2ft FL light. Pls don't try them unless there's no other option cos they are not bright at all, even worse than my NEC FL which been used for a yr, can u imagine!!!
    Waste my money liao[]
