Josh, the JTL Everlights are not focusable but the JTL superlights are both focusable and power adjustable. Superlights are also fan cooled which us DV guys are wary of fan noise.

Britek makes the Brifocus light in 500, 1000 and 2000 watt versions which is focusable but not power adjustable.

I have some focusable Britek lights 1000 watts each with softboxes that have proven very robust work horses and are pretty cheap too. JTL Everlights are very cheap but good in the 500 watt category.

You can see both the Briteks and JTL www.photography-lighting.com Hope that helps.

I think Briteks are better but JTL has been making lots of accesories.
I still prefer some other companies for more durable fixtures.
