If you carefully read what I said, I was referring to the reason why Home Depot doesn't carry MR16 fixtures anymore including the reason why so many newer electronics these days are emitting this toxic smell through outgassing.
Not happening on this end. You have a reference to other Solux/MR16 users who have experienced this? Or perhaps its not the only (or even a reason) why Home Depot doesn’t sell MR16 products.
It was mainly to point out that so much of our electronic appliances are being built overseas with questionable quality and safety inspection standards, so why use a light that requires a transformer when there are so many other alternatives.
Many or all? No argument that crap products are crap, don’t buy em. Unless you have some data that shows all possible options are crap, move on. FWIW, I purchased all the can’s and bulbs directly from Solux.
Having a light that requires a transformer is just another potential weak link no one should have to deal with. I mean when my AT&T DSL modem made by Motorola just quit on me a year ago after a years use, it wasn't the modem that broke--IT WAS THE FREAKIN' TRANSFORMER BLOCK that plugs into the wall! Do you know how hard it is to replace with one that matches the exact electrical specs? Give me a break!
I’ll be happy to give you a break and a pass when you can provide evidence that all products using transformers are problematic or that your AT&T modem failure is solely
caused in this manner (and not poor construction, a surge on your end, other lesser quality components etc).
If you've got a better answer as to why this happens, then divulge with meaningful information instead of knee jerk FANBOY-ism for some lighting brand.
Actually its you that needs to supply the data points to connect the dots as to the issue of which I have not witnessed nor I suspect the vast majority of users of said products. I’m sorry the AT&T product failed you, you do not have to purchase another. But to suggest there is some common fault here with majority or users seems extreme, be it with the AT&T or Solux or MR16 or transformer products. Again, if you have some data to suggest this is a common issue we should be aware of and alert to, I’d be happy to read that data. Otherwise you have an opinion, one presumably formed from a Home Depot employee and all I suggested was you gather a bit more data (opinions). Sorry if that’s such an awful suggestion. It takes a bit of work yes.
If anyone is acting like a salesman, it's been you, Andrew.
Right. I suggested a 2nd opinion and told you there are Solux Pars. One is a suggestion, the other a fact. Instead you get pissy some more, and now try to suggest I’m selling something.
I mean Ellis and I have been in discussion with you online I know at least for me ten years, now and you still stay on script and talk to us (me at least) like we're strangers. What's up with that?
Script, interesting concept. Apparently part of the script provided some new data points, in terms of a substitute (Pars).
We don't need that preached to us for the umpteenth time by you.
You are not the only person being addressed here sir.
If you've got newer, more meaningful information, then put it forth, but please stop preaching to the choir because it's just sounding like "hell fire and damnation" coming from you.
Ah, so now the script includes preaching. I suppose that the post here is only directed at you and read by you. You suppose other
readers might find the info useful including the new data such as Par options?
In reality the lights don't look that blue-green. In fact the newer ones are much more neutral but don't offer the separation in color like the Solux.
So the Solux are a better bulb? Sure sounds like it from your description.
Look, a few points then its time to move on. 1. Some guy at Home Depot said something about why they don’t sell MR16, fine. If the suggestion “get a second opinion” and “I’ve got almost a dozen such products in daily use with no issues” isn’t useful to you, fine. 2. You don’t want to use MR16 bulbs, there is another Solux option. Don’t want to use em, fine. 3. I paid for every Solux product I have, I don’t get a penny if you buy them or go with a Fluorescent, you want an illuminate with a spiky spectrum, filled with nasty mercury, fine. I don’t care. 4. Take a chill pill, you’re not the only one reading these posts who may take something useful away from experience of others.
