It's too good to be true because much of the light output falls
outside the UV range and is therefore "wasted" on UV-sensitive
materials. Better to get UV bulbs whose output concentrates on the
req's part of the UV range.

But they'd be great to replace normal florescent bulbs in a workshop
since the daylight light is much more pleasant than a normal
florescent bulb's green light. So they're still good and true, but
just for another purpose than printing!!
