Something I've been wondering is how do these compare to more professional open face lights, like Mickey's or Arrilite 1000's. Besides the obvious differences in sturdiness and whatnot, just as a light how do they compare? I've been wanting to add a couple of higher-power open faced lights to my kit for a little bit. The Britke's are about half the price of a comparable Arri or Mole or Red Head, and I'm wondering if it would be worth it to take the savings, or if I should just get the Arri?

Jeez, David. You can get a BRAND NEW Altman 650L (takes 650, 500 & 300W lamps) for $275 at B&H. Why sweat eBay when you can get gear as good as any Arri, Pepper or Mole for that kind of price. Altman gear is way under-appreciated, in my opinion.
