Nova is a decent mid-line brand. $50 sounds like a pretty good price for it. T-5's smaller the 2 ft are always a little trickier to get bulbs for. Doesn't mean they are not out there, you may just have to do a little searching. Personally, anything under 2 feet I prefer power compacts but pc's do have more of a heat issue, and sometimes you just go with the deal that crosses your path.
