    Just wondering what ya all thought of these lights, any input would be great because I'm not sure if they are a good set of lights. and if anyone knows if they run hot or not.
    Thanks

    BUY THEM! Seriously. Do it while you can still get that fantastic price. Those are great lights.

    And no, they won't give off a significant amount of heat.

    ok went on there site now I see the lights for 175.00 and when I go and click to buy them they are 204.95 I wonder if its a mistake on the site, called them and their not open till monday. I'm thinking of just getting them anyways the price either way sounds to good to pass up, thats why I asked about them I have never seen lights so cheap. if you go on the site and put in item code 614888 in the search box you will see what i'm talking about kinda weird, right?

    Yesterday, the site was showing them as $204.95 and I went and checked now, and they were still $204.95. I do see that if you enter the code, it gives a lower price though -- that is weird. Get them anyways, it's a great deal.

    You can either call them or use the Live Chat on their site when they open on Monday. I've made many purchases from them. Great service.

    I would be afraid of the sale ending! If it were me, I'd take a screen shot of the page that says the price is $175, order the lights for $204, then on Monday send them the screen shot and ask if they can reimburse you for difference, since you paid the higher price. That way you have nothing to lose!

    I bought a pair on Friday when they were listed at 175. Total with shipping was 395 I think.

    Got them today. They are very nice. There is no lens over the bulbs so I will have to fit one but thats okay. They have only one power cord and two on/off switches so you can run four bulbs at a time if you want. I am at work so I will try to post pictures when I get home tonight.
