I havent used one for years but remember thinking it was cool (did a fire effect). Are they any good? Worth getting?
Basically whats the brightness and colour like and is it any use for fire/tv/police effects?

The Kelvin Tiles are very nice old units but are very dated by today's standards.

The v-lock mounted power supplies were rubbish and had a habit of undervolting and dying, best replaced with the 20v supplies the Area 48s use.

Even when they first came out they weren't the brightest units and that put a lot of people off, but they really made up for it in colour reproduction and flexibility (daylight to tungsten, plus all the colours of the rainbow). Nowadays, unless you are picking them up ludicrously cheap, there better options.
