I use these lamps in my Lowel Pro-Lights. They're very good and I have never had one blow while the light was on all day. However, they do have a tendency to blow very easily if the light is bumped. I try to keep at least two spare bulbs on-hand at all times.

Good price!

SO far so good, these bulbs were a great price. Seem to work as well Not sure about longevity yet, but otherwise seem to function well.

Comments about Impact GCA Lamp (250W) (120V):

I use the product for photo and video lighting. The bulbs are a bit warmer than I remember, but they give off a great light and they are easily diffused. The light they go with focuses as well so you get a way to make it seem brighter when you are bouncing the light on something. They are very good lights, but you need to make sure you don't move them around when they are on. They heat up pretty quick and the bulb with blow if you move it or bump it too hard. Otherwise, amazing lights and BandH always gets things here on time!

              I use in my Lowel Pro-Lights.

              They're very good I haven't had one blow out even using it a whole day and taking it our and swamping to another light.

              Tend to run very hot, but that's to be expected.

                            I cant describe to you how amazing this light bulb is. It is as bright as a 250w should be and clocks in right at 120v, the standard.

                            But for real, it is a pretty basic bulb but it works.
