Cheap ebay PC Bulbs

Anybody have lousy luck with the cheaper ebay PC bulbs? Wondering if it's my setup??

I bought four 32W 50/50 bulbs from altechnik. I only paid $49 for all, with shipping. They each burned out within two weeks!

Anybody experience significant quality differences in bulbs?? Thanks.
