From what i have heard, the first couple batches of lamps were pretty average, but they have improved greatly since then, to the point where they are comparable to arris.

A couple companies have done side by side tests with both arris and filmgear tungsten lamps to see which one they could destroy through everyday kind of wear and tear first, and both seemed to have the same things break at around the same time

In terms of HMI, basically ballasts are pretty similar to arris, with the similar quality components, the main issue was the earlier models were poorly assembled in terms of soldering etc, but all of those issue could be fixed with a couple of hours with a tech(this is sometimes done by the importers anyway).

That is what i have heard from a tech that fixes them as they are imported into the country.
