Why not to use an eBay vendor:
 
I came across this among other red flags, this was my favorite:


Attraction:
1, Light Transmission is much more stronger than Normal Halogen Bulb.
2, More brighter than Normal Halogen Bulb.
3, The performance for heat elimination is more better than Normal Halogen Bulb.
4, The glass surface can't be exploded easily when It will appear under heat expension and cold contract.
5, Longer life, The type one had been produced under strict test on light shape.
6, The high strenghth gathers light more than Normal Halogen Bulb.

there are things you buy on ebay, then there are the things you dont.

Just found that section amusing. Nothing says "legit" like consistently broken English.

Most likely the light will work fine, but with dim output. All the TUV/CE markings and certificates suggest it won't randomly catch on fire, probably. Note the $28 shipping - that's how the seller makes his money.

I didn't have any intention of buying the item. I was just amused as hell by the grammar. I guess my sense of humor is just a bit off.

Too funny..and agreed, not gonna buy something from a person who writes like that especially that which I cannot tell at a glance if it works.
