Now that you have seen the ins and outs of the samples, lets take a look at them when they are on. The first picture is both the red and the blue on, laying on my carpet so you can see the colors.

The next pictures, I have each CCFL on in one of my cases. The case is setup with blue rounded cables and white/clear spiral wrap.

This comparison is a CCFL that I bought from B.G. Micro.  It is a bare 12 inch blue CCFL and it is typically the kind of bulb that more retailers sell so I thought it would be perfect for a comparison. The Sunbeam CCFL is the one on the right.

This is a hard product to find anything wrong with.  In fact, I am very satisfied with the quality; the consistent light and the dual inverter. Overall the CCFL kit is very thought out from the included toggle switch with female disconnects, custom cut velcro for a smooth installation, a removable Velcro cover on the inverter and the quality and design of the acrylic products bring everything together.

CCFL's are very common in computer modding lately and we have come a long way from the days of taking a small and cumbersome neon made for a car and adapting it for computer use. It's encouraging to see companies taking the next step and putting together a complete setup that is ready to plug in.

I would like to thank Keven from Sunbeam Company for providing us the product for review. In addition to the Blue and Red products that he provided, they also manufacture a green and a white and I have the feeling that they will be bringing further colors and products to the market in the future.



Pros:

  • Dual Inverter
  • CCFL encased in acrylic tube and cube ends
  • Fully assembled, ready to plug in
  • Red CCFL is red and not pinkish like competitors
  • Consistent color throughout
  • Stripes on tube to indicate CCFL color


Cons:

  • None
