        Comments about Plusrite 50 Watt, Clear ED17 Cool White Metal Halide Lamp:

        I was hoping to find a bright light to use in my home. It turned out that this type of bulb is used mainly in commercial facilities and requires a ballast in order to work. I don't know exactly what a ballast is, but I know I don't have one.
