Are all bulbs created equal?


May be a dumb question but wondered if the bulbs I found are too good to be true. Recently found some 175 w 14K metal halides on that big

site. They are about half the price of Hamilton.
Shouldn't they all work the same? Is there a quality factor of a decreased life expectancy that I should look for...?

Nope they're not all the same by a long shot. The intensity and color will vary from brand to brand, even if they're the same wattage and kelvin rating.
