I'm using the 35 watt, 4700K, 24 degree bulb and it seems to work well for me.
Do you use the black shield from Pegasus and it fits fine over the Solux bulb or lamp? (or wherever you put it) Just want to double check before I order because I noticed they don't sell the black back Solux bulbs.
I have mine about 5 feet from my monitor and it doesn't throw any light on the screen that I can tell.
With your lamp 5 feet away from the monitor, you can still hold up a print right next to the monitor and view it well with your lamp and Solux bulb? I imagined the lamp being super close to my monitor in order to compare print to screen. Guess it's not necessary to have it super close?
(I also have a ghetto homemade matte black hood on my monitor)
Ha! Would love to hear how you made it. Is the hood absolutely necessary even after pulling the shades down on the windows? Guess so.
I appreciate your help SO much!
