          These 500W lights work just as expected. The only negative is that one of them burned out fairly quickly. My clients love that I use these diffused so that they don't have to see a flash over and over during their session!

            I use these light bulbs while I paint murals in my art studio! They are terrific and with the tripods and attachments to have them brown out instead of pop, they last more than 6 hours. I get a few days out of them and can see everything clearly as I work with no eye strain. This is only store I can find them and hopefully soon I will order another 20 or 30 bulbs, they are hard to find!

              This is the second time I've gotten a mere 5 hours out of this bulb. The light is great but not for long..
