    I am one thst knows better but still try to get by on a dime, well it bit me by purchasing a cheaper model of these great bulbs Online, I didnt even have the takeoff models a week before I had problems and the cheap ones didnt nearly put out the light these lamps do.Iam just starting up my own photography business and was trying to save money. Once I bought these lamps it was like night and day in difference, I have been telling all my buddies about these and have definately learned a valuable lesson..Great Product!!!

      I use 2 Westcott TD6's in my studio and they have 12 of these lamps between them. The light output and colour of the light are fabulous.
      I was looking for bright daylight and these fit the bill perfectly. Don't procrastinate like I did, do it!

          Comments about Westcott Fluorescent Lamp - 50 Watts/120 Volts 5500K:

          I use these bulbs with the Westcott TD6 lights and I couldn't be happier.
          The color is fantastic and very soft. Not to mention they are bright.

          If you get the full set I recommend the Lamp Guard case. B&H # WELG6C

          Why? Yesterday I was involved in a car accident where I was hit from behind. The lights were in the LampGuard cases which were in the trunk of my car and they survived the hit.

          I would consider them pretty sturdy. So my outrageous claim is… they will survive a car crash.

          They do get a little warm after extended use but they cool off quickly. Give it about 60 seconds and you're good to go.

            Well I got my bulbs in and i installed two of them and they are working fine. I really like the soft light of the Westcott Spiderlite TD5 but it has already gone through 2 bulbs in two months.

                  The Spiderlte system is great in the studio, especially if you are a fan of continuous lighting over strobe. Just be sure you anchor your light stand well. Tipping it over and breaking all the lights is not an inexpensive event.

                            I love that thes dont get hot and heat up the room and model. The first one was smashed in the box and B&H replaced it, no questions asked! They look fragile so be very careful.

                            Comments about Westcott Fluorescent Lamp - 50 Watts/120 Volts 5500K:

                            Product used to light background for indoor photography.

                            Light value of 5500K, and a well built fixture.

                            I could not use this light with a couple of my old reflectors, due to the width of the built in ballast.

                              It's a great fluorescent lamp. I am using it on a Spiderlight with a softbox. It gives powerful 900 watts all together. It provides daylight 24 hours a day for consistent shooting. A great bulb...

                              These run cool, and provide nice light. They aren't high intensity so you need to have them close to your subject.I[...]
