Fresnel Tungsten lights
If you’re in the market for some directional lighting,¬†Fresnel¬†tungsten lights make great studio spotlights. The Arri 650 watt models will set you back around $400 a peace. However this knock off from china (above) is selling on ebay right now for $177 with free shipping. Looks like the sale price only lasts for the next 8 hours so if you are in the market you might want to check them out.

I haven’t had a chance to play around with any of the knock off Fresnels. Most of the reviews I’ve read say that the build quality is good, but the electrical cords and switch are hit or miss. I’m sure it wouldn’t be to much work to change out the wiring. A replacement cable is a cheap fix if everything else is solid.
