Eiko ECT reviews

ECT Lamp (500W/120V) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of Sketchy 500 watts is a lot to ask from a light bulb. So it's kind of pushes the boundaries of... safety. It outputs a lot of light. For most of my setups it's basically too much light. So I decided to hook it up to a dimmer, which made it smoke and have a green like haze on the outside of the bulb. I bought 4 and they all have that blackish haze on the bulb even after about 10 hours max usage. So even if you have a fixture capable of 500w like the impact lights, I would suggest getting something a little safer. Maybe the 250w will be better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bulb, but needs better recommendations. This bulb performed up to par, with a few exceptions. The bulb is so long, that in the recommended housing, it protrudes passed the reflector and causes burn hazards. Otherwise, the easy fix is to simply buy a larger housing (reflector, softbox, etc...). However, with smaller spaces, needing brighter light, and using smaller equipment, this bulb does peak some concern. Though, I am completely satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Used for fill lighting during weddings. It's hard to review a light bulb, but so far I've gotten 20 hours out of the two I purchased. I only handle the bulbs with cotton gloved hands. I never touch them with bvare skin (to keep the oils from overheating the bulbs.) No complaints about the bulbs, but they get HOT, so allow cool-down time before disassembling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great for three minutes I am a photography student setting up my home studio and ordered three of these as back ups for the bulbs that came with my Impact lighting kit. As expected the original kit bulbs burnt out immediately, no big deal because I was just making sure that the fixtures worked. When I got my setup into its new permanent home I was really disappointed when two out of my three new 'better' bulbs burnt out within three minutes of setting them up. I will say that they are indeed insanely bright and would be perfect if I could get them to not burn out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get a better bulb I received this lamp as a part of the Interfit Stellar Tungsten One-Light Softbox Kit. I also purchased two back ups in case there was damage during shipping. One of the bulbs did turn out to be damaged. B&H replaced it at no cost to me. However, the other two bulbs proved to be less than exceptional. After minimal use, the bulbs would burn out. I don't know if this was an issue with the fixture or if the bulbs are just inferior. I will have to do further testing to know for sure, but if you have the option...opt for a higher quality bulb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy brightness! This bulb is extremely bright and if heat wasn't an issue, I'd probably use this over CFL bulbs. It gives off enough heat for use as a winter heater in a smaller space (double duty! What a buy!)The glass is frosted inside and over time, seems to burn (it's slowly getting charred and brown with use) but it doesn't affect the amount of light being given off.I hear metal parts (the filament?) moving every time I take the bulb out, so I've kept it screwed in and try not to jig it about.A really good buy at a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright but Fragile? It's a nice bright light bulb that I ordered for a green screen video project. Shot through a translucent white umbrella, the output is awesome, but as mentioned before by others, moving the lights around while hot must burn them out. After having the light on for 2 hours, I turned it off and moved the light about 3 feet to the side. Flipped the switch, and nothing. Luckily, I ordered two bulbs so I had a back up. I may have to consider stocking up on these bulbs and buying them from a local retailer.
