Well now that you have seen the individual colors let's see how they look in my case. The CCFL colors left to right are RGB, Blue, Green, Red, UV, and White. Unfortunately, RGB regardless, to the order ends up becoming a tinted white light, but I'm sure if you figured out some kind of divider system, it would work really well.

 
 
 

In conclusion, once I got passed the initial shock of seeing 8 Cold Cathodes in a box, I was able to settle down and take a close look at this companies product. A lot of companies sell CCFL's and the only real differences between companies are packaging and quality of the phosphor's in the lamp. Lamps Electronics has done a nice packaging job, securing the fragile lamp in an acrylic tube, adding cubic ends to keep the lamp from rolling around and adding an inverter box.

What I think they need to do next is find truer colors for their CCFL's. When you look at other companies you tend to see a pinkish red and with Lamps Electronics you see an orange-red, which is still a step behind the Sunbeam Company, but then again if you want orange for your case, this is a good solution. Also, they have used tinted acrylic tubes for the Blue, Green, and Red tubes. I think to correct some color issues, this has really helped their Green and Blue offerings 

I would like to thank Li Gao from Lamps Electronics for providing the huge assortment of CCFL's used in this review. They offer a full selection of computer and modding products. Lamps Electronics has been consistently producing Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps since 1998 in several sizes and shapes.



Pros:

  • 3 color RGB CCFL
  • Acrylic tube and cubic ends
  • CCFL color consistent
  • 4 inch, 8 inch, and 12 inch sizes
  • Inverter enclosed in box with air vent


Cons:

  • Red looks orange, White gives off a White - Violet color
  • Inverter box doesn't have easy to access connections.
