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.

Fragile

In general, these gca lamps are terribly fragile. If you so much as look at them wrong the filament will pop. Otherwise, they do produce a nice bright light if you're careful.

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

    I put this in my Light and it does a great job getting a good amount of light out of a small package. It's packaging makes it easy to never touch the bulb with your fingers when replacing it into a light, which is great if you are a paranoid about greasy fingers as I am.

          I typically set these in the ground and when setting position, gently moving the fixture, will blow the filament.
          Find another brand, I'm about to...

            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!

                        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 use this lamp with my Lowel Pro Light. It is bright and does the job. No complaints so far.
