A little pricey, but not too bad. Purchase as a spare with the two light kit and I'm glad I did. The original bulbs were both bad. One never even came on and the other blew within ten minutes. The two spares are still going strong and have been loaded, unloaded, and shipped multiple times.

Not bad but runs way too hot!

I use these lamps for green screening. I am content with the power but just two of them generate for too much heat as far as I am concerned. These should only be used...Read complete review

I use these lamps for green screening. I am content with the power but just two of them generate for too much heat as far as I am concerned. These should only be used for short periods of time. I run them for an hour or more continuously and that's too much.

          Test upon arrival recommended!

          Comments about Impact JCD Lamp for Qualite 300 - 300W, 120V:

          I love the Qualite 300 lights and everything about them, but Impact has to exercise a little quality control here. I ordered 2 more lights (the actual fixtures) in addition to the one I had already, and one of them arrived with a bad bulb. I then put in a replacement bulb that I had purchased previously, only to learn that it wasn't working either. I then thought that maybe something was wrong with the fixture, tried replacing the fuse etc. Then I saw that the spring in the bulbs was broken and tried a bulb from a different fixture - and voila - it worked! So, as far as my experience with these goes, the success rate with me getting a working bulb has been exactly 50/50. Make your own conclusions.

            The bulb gets the job done. A few times I thought it blew, but simply replacing the fuse got the job done.

              When ordering lights, I highly recommend ordering an extra bulb or two. When relying on artificial lighting, it is always good to have a spare bulb on hand. These bulbs are used on my Impact Qualite 300, and are an excellent light source for various environments.

                  I purchased these as back up bulbs for our lights and they appear to be an exact match of the ones that came with it, whcih have worked without issue thus far. B&H as always was very fast on their delivery.

                        Just the ones I needed and since they're hard to find better have some in stock. I think they work fine, they get a bit hot so, be careful when moving your lights or when wrapping up after a shoot.

                                  Replaced the lamp in my lights, just like it says. Works fine so far, haven't really used them on set yet. It seems like the price should be lower, especially for a small, relativley low power lamp like these.

                                    Great quality lights. One arrived with a broken bulb (shipping damage) but B&H sent me a replacement for it immediately...at no charge. Great company to buy from.
