Sylvania / Osram 53980 reviews

HMI 1200W SEL XS Metal Halide Lamp is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Globe The globe I got from BH was Osram's UVS version (UV-Stop). I don't know if all of their globes are specially treated to be UV resistant, but the box made a point of noting that it was a UVS version, and the listing on BH did not. That said, I'm really glad it's the UVS version because the fixture I'm using it in is a Chinese knockoff HMI and I don't know what corners they cut when it comes to things like UV protection. All in all, a great globe. It's not noisy, color temperature is spot on, and has been struck many times with no issues so far. It claims to be hot restrikable but I'm terrified to test it out and see if it is. Very bright as well. Love how you can compete with the sun and use these things to really blast light into an area at night time. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The real thing I bought a 12000 HMI on @ that came with a bulb. Unfortunately, that bulb was very loud. I replaced it withy this one and now the light works as it should.
