Light bulbs

Postby xcourtney3 » Mon Aug 10, 2009 10:34 pm


What kind of bulb will provide the most heat? A 60 watt household bulb isn't quite cutting it for my monitor. What do other monitor owners use?

I use 75W & 90W PAR38 Halogen floodlights. They are the real big ones used outdoors. GE makes some that are rated for 6000 hours life. Halogen bulbs put out much more heat and a brighter light than standard incandescent. Make sure your monitor can't get too close, the surface of the bulb gets real hot!!
