I don't know if anyone is aware of this, but as of January 1, 2017, GE no longer offers metal halide as an option for any of their HID fixtures.

Actually, I just heard that they will soon be discontinuing ALL HID fixtures sometime this year. Shocked The end of an era for sure. Cooper might be doing the same thing! Sad

Yeah talk about the end of an era. At least those with existing HID installs still have to option to reballast lights if any fail.

Tired of orange lights? Our all new Ceram-Arc Ceramic Metal Halide lamps are the solution. They even use up to a 1/3 less energy than our Orange 40™ lamps and the competing Seagull Vapour lamps.

Wow, even the M-250R2 and M-400? I always thought those were strong sellers. I understand why they got rid of the M-400R2 and M-400A2. They haven't been strong sellers since the late 90's when they introduced M-400 and M-400A and as a result, sales plummeted. I've never seen slow selling products last for more than a decade. I'm actually surprised they didn't discontinue them sooner despite the poor sales of those fixtures, but I'm surprised that they're killing off all of their HID products. It's a shame that we don't have as many lighting options as we used to. I sure hope Cooper doesn't do the same thing.
