Well, I'm hoping to answer some questions with this thread, although I may just end up more confused.
There seems to be great disagreement about the value of cold light heads. The opinions range from "cold light heads are indispensable, they make my prints glow in the dark", to "I'll print the same negative on condensor and on cold light, and I'll bet no one can tell the difference."
I currently print with an Omega B-22 condensor enlarger. If cold light heads weren't so expensive, I'd just try it and see for my self.
Obviously, trying to sort out this wide range of opinion is difficult. What are your thoughts, fellow APUG-ers?
