UV Lighting brand replacement bulbs

Has anyone heard of this brand and/or used them before?

96W Power Compact Bulb - Square Pin

I currently have an Odyssea PC fixture for my 50 gallon and I want to start growing plants soon. However, I've heard that the Odyssea bulbs should be replaced immediately as they are pretty inefficient. The current bulb is also "50/50" which I'm sure doesn't do much for the plants with part of it being actinic.

I'd be picking up the 6700K bulb.

UV lighting is a good brand. I've used plenty of their T5 lamps.

Cool thanks for the reply. With a sale like the one on the 6700K bulb, I can't pass up the opportunity to replace my Odyssea bulb.
