I ran out of my generic Aurora Roxi T5HO 54 watt 48" 6400K lights. I've heard so much about Sunblaster that I said, Ok, I'll try an order. The delivery was the same. However the generics were around $4 and the Sunblasters were around $12. I measured the PAR right next to the middle of the bulb after warm-up. The measurement is in mv and not PAR but anyway, it was exactly the same for a new bulb of each, 257 mv. So in light output while new, the generics are a lot cheaper and just as good. I do have a feeling that the Sunblasters last longer before serious dimming. I'll label an Aurora and then a Sunblaster and try to keep track.
In the meantime, maybe buy generic and save some money.
