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.

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

The lamp burnt out on me after using only once, & very briefly then. Only use for a test run on set. I start on Fri.,07/29-08/01/2016 on an indie. I will follow then. They seem durable enough. the light boxes are a challenge & should be assembled w/ care. I would recommend as a good low /no budget production source of lighting equipment.

      The headline says it all. I tried to return it but I was told once I remove it from its packaging it is no longer refundable. How am I suppose to know if it is broken or not if I don't remove it from the package? The ol Catch 22. That's how they get ya

              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 couldn't find replacement blind anywhere locally. These were easy to find on the B&H website for my Impact lighting kit. Shipped fast, popped them in and saved my shoot!

                      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.

                                  These lights are great. Wish they lasted a little longer, but they're fairly sturdy and give great light.

                                  It's a great bulb. A little hard to take out and put back in but works great. Good lighting for my pictures.

                                      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.
