I rate the American DJ PAR-38B can fairly high on value, due to the price, although if you want to bring the wiring up to code, you might do just as well to invest in a higher-priced unit. I haven't tried any others, so I can't make specific recommendations. For my limited purposes, it will do the job, once I replace the lamps. I couldn't believe the bulbs were as bad as some others have said until I lit one up. The bulbs are absolutely unusable - junk. At least decent replacement bulbs are widely available and affordable.
I was disappointed to find that the cord is neither grounded nor polarized. The label on the case says this device should be grounded, but that's left up to the user. That said, it's not a big deal to replace the cord or be sure to have a GFCI if you use it outdoors or near grounded objects. Or clamp it to a grounded frame.
Reasonably solid construction and mates up well with the Chauvet CH03 C-clamps I purchased. Disappointed to find that it's not UL listed, probably due to the inadequate cord.
It's a good deal for the price, although the bulb they supply is totally worthless, as others have mentioned.

For the price these are great lights. I needed some extra lights to add to our truss system. Used with a chaser they operate as intended. They come with the bulb already installed but inadequate packaging that doesn't withstand the "shotput" deliver method of UPS. Ordered four and two bulbs were broken.

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

We bought these lights for an acoustic duo performance. We did not need too much light and we didn't have the budget for more expensive LED lights. Worked great! We purchased some gels and bought inexpensive spot lights to replace the flood lights that came with the cans. Just what we needed!

    Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

    Lightweight but very professional looking and performing. Four per tree on each side of stage with foot control is more than ample for our trio. I also have a big six piece band with bridge lighting, etc., but lately have been thinking about taking this rig out due to ease of use and efficiency. Great product.

      Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

      This is advertised as profession lighting. But they're calling it a party light on the box it came in! But that was pretty much the only let down other than it's kind of small, just big enough to hold a PAR 38 bulb. But isn't that what it's supposed to do. Why would you need some thing huge? There is no over kill in quality but it seems like it should last a long time. It gets hot but cools down fast. Can't beat the price!

      These are good basic lights. Add a gel and you are all set. Good for front or back lighting.

          Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

          Everything arrived safe and sound (no broken bulbs). I put the bulbs away for later use. I am currently using 100 watt colored bulbs. when the colored bulbs wear out, I will get some jells and use the bulbs they came with. The cords are a little short, but I can work around by moving control boxes closer on the truss.

          Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

          I had bought 4 of these and decided I needed 2 more for a total of 6. I have them mounted on a horizontal bar that sits on a tripod stand I already had. Mounted 2 above the bar and 4 below. Provides plenty of light for my needs using colored flood light bulbs. I just ordered some gels sheets to go with these.....they are not included, although the frames are. Looking forward to seeing how these work with regular white floods which are cheaper to replace when they burn out. I play solo and this set up is great for my needs. Easy to transport and sets up in a minute or two when needed. Looks much more professional than those clip on work type fixtures I had been using before...at not much more cost than those originally were. Very pleased with size, cost, quality, look, and portability. Can't beat this price anywhere else that I've found.

          I have six of these mounted on a tripod stand. I leave them on the cross bar, four below....two above...which makes set up quite fast and easy. I use colored flood light bulbs in them so I don't have to mess with the gel frames and gels which can easily be damaged in transport. I play solo and this one stand is plenty for my purposes. Much easier to transport and set up and also brighter than the Chauvet LED system I also have which involves two stands, cables, controller, etc.

                The hole is not standard. Every other piece of lighting equipment I have ever bought has a hole large enough to accommodate the standard bolts that are come with lighting equipment. I had to purchase a drill bit (7/16") and drill the hole larger. Not convenient at all!

                I bought six of these lights the first round two came with broken bulbs (the most expensive part of the light). So i called and complained and they agreed to send me two more lights so that i would have the six i ordered. When the replacements get here i didnt even have to open the shipping box to hear the broken glass rattling around inside. So again i call rather angry this time, again they say ok well we will ship you two more. I proceeded to tell the gentleman dont even bother unless they packaged them differently this time. He assured me he would have them special packaged. When they arrived they were all intact.
