Comments about Lowel Rifa eXchange 1000W Module:

After tens of hours of use, one of the pins on the 750W lamp, broke in the adaptor socket. It appeared to have been arcing, and eventually the sparks cut through the pin, welding the remaining piece into the socket. There was no way to get it out.
The design of the module doesn't allow for you to remove/replace just the ceramic base containing the lamp connectors - you have to replace the entire assembly. I view this as bad design by Lowel.
On the plus side, the modules are not quite as expensive as I had thought. I bought two so that I would not be caught out like that again.
