Re: referring to longevity - and ExoTerra Solar Glo 125W

A kind distributor sent me, as a gift, a brand new ExoTerra 125W lamp from his latest stock on 20th July....only 5 weeks ago!
And now I learn that this lamp is ALREADY out of date... and I only finished testing it last week.
I suppose I ought to carry on with writing a report because obviously some stocks of the older style lamps are still being sold, but now I need yet another lamp to test.... :-(

And when they switch up bulbs on you after you're tested the samples, you're screwed. Trust is a hard thing to do after the manufacturers abuse it a few times.
