Wow, $15 for 65w PC bulbs? How is it that I still pay 2x that at the LFS? Are these bulbs of decent quality? I currently buy Coralife.

I haven't read any pro's or con's concerning Catalina PC bulbs. Their pricing is just a bit lower than AHSupply's. Their 55w PC's are $17.99

On another note, GE's 55w straight pin 9325K PC is another 'pinkish' bulb that works well.

LightBulbsDirect.com has them back in stock for $14.20.

AtlantaLightBulbs.com has them for $17.95.

GE 9325K

Here is a comparison that I did. The white balance wasn't adjusted as a basis. All photos are with the same aperture, shutter and white balance setting.

1) 5000K/6700K


2)5000K/GE 9325K


3)6700K/GE 9325K


4)GE 9325K/GE 9325K
