    Which enlarger bulb to buy??

    Hi, I have a Durst CLS450 and need to replace the enlarger bulb. This seemed like a simple enough task except that there appear to be many different bulbs (from different manufacturers) with very different pricing. The price ranges from about $6 to about $50, and the specs appear the same. The brands are different though. The label on my bulb reads as follows:

    USHIO
    ELC 24V/250Watt
    Japan M3B

    Could the differences among the various bulbs be so great as to warrant the price differences?

    Thanks,
    Luigi

    The halogen bulb you need is a basic ELC 24V/250 so go ahead and buy the $4.95 version, and get several at that price to keep on hand.
