Has anyone had any experience with super budget open face eBay lights like these?

http://www.ebay.com....=item2eb481bfbb

They are about a 1/10th the price of Strands, just wondering how quickly they fall to pieces and the reflectors burn out..

Being openfaced I cant imagine significant colour temp issues with a good bulb, unless they don't run at accurate voltages..?

cheers

See if you can find some used Moles on E Bay. I've picked up a couple of 2K fresnels off of there from time to time for $150...... they ain't the prettiest girls at the party, but they work.

I don't know where you are located but you may risk having trouble importing these lights into your country if they do not carry a certificate of compliance such as UL or CSA. I've heard stories of non-compliant equipment being confiscated by customs. I'd check it out first before purchasing.

Cheers,
