I purchased a fluorescent mirror light with a desk clamp for $42 from this merchant's eBay store on 11/21/2013. I used it as a desk lamp, quite sparingly. On March 27, for no reason, the light inside emitted a loud "pop" while the light was on and smoke filled the room. Later I disassembled the light to find that the bulb had burst and gotten so hot that it cracked its housing.
It was beyond the 30-day eBay warranty period, so I couldn't open a case. However, a lamp is supposed to last longer than four months of normal use -- especially a fluorescent one, which is supposed to use far less power and generates far less heat. It is also not supposed to pose a danger to life and limb during normal use. This was a shoddy product, and I was lucky it didn't harm me or my family.
I contacted the seller through eBay messages. I asked to ship it back for either a replacement and pay shipping. [continued below]....
