(yes, I know I start almost every post with 'so..' it's kind of my thing!)
There's an old saying:
"You never get a second chance to make a first impression"
The packaging it was sent in was.. unimpressive.
There was no receipt or invoice in the envelope.
Just a lightbulb in a plastic bag.
Now, the bulb itself appears to be MUCH more finished than the ones made for the Bernina machines.
But that's not really saying much of anything.
There are still drips of glue, and capacitors sticking out of the Lucite.
Basically, this is NOT a 40$ lightbulb. Well, that's what they charge, but just based on the physical presentation of the thing...I have to say it's not worth it.
This is a $19.99 garage band special.
And that's before we've even tested the performance...
