Comments about Spencers 48" Black Light:

I bought 4 of these blacklights at once because of the "Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off" sale and these blacklights are amazing! I only had to exchange one of them because it had a faulty connection with the bulb (bulb had to be twisted everytime to get it to turn on). If you have a large room don't expect 1 of these blacklights to do any justice, I have all 4 of mine each 2.5ft apart attached to the ceiling of our bottom deck (12.5ft by 8.5ft deck) and it lights it up perfectly at night! If you aren't willing to spend the money to properly light a room then don't complain that they aren't bright enough, blacklight bulbs are only 40 watts remember! It's worth noting that the blacklights that come with these fixtures are very skinny (not sure if they even sell the thicker tube in 48" length though, but if they do they definitely have enough room to fit in these fixtures). Electronic starter works as advertised, no flickering at all and the switch on the fixtures is very sturdy unlike some that break and push in. Also, the fixture itself is VERY STURDY, made of metal which is a huggeeee plus (they aren't made of that cheap plastic most blacklights use). The only main con I have for these lights is that the fixtures mounting spots are very small, the light would only need to move about a quarter of an inch and it would fall right off the ceiling and break (To prevent this we mounted the lights on small wooden block first and slid the screws into the mounts in opposite directions so that they can never fall; or be stolen because their outside; and then screwed the wood blocks into the side of the beams holding up the top deck which hid the fixture completely only leaving the bulb itself showing). These are great lights and completely worth the money (especially with the current sale) and they work great as long as you buy enough of them to properly light your room/area.

    With a clever setup, the living room was nicely illuminated and set the right tone for the apartment. Also the customer service of Spencer's Online was quick to address my issues when they came up. I look forward to continuing to purchase party gear from Spencers's.

    This blacklight is great, I bought it today and it Lights up my entire room just fine. Its very bright and works amazingly. The only thing I have a beef with is how you put it on the wall, but its hanging just fine regardless.

        The product is great I got the black light to help with my glow in the dark themed room and it's perfect! I have never written a review for something I bought but thius sure takes the cake (: the light covers the whole room! (48' Light) and I might just get another to put in my room , (just because the wall layout in my room prevents the light from covering the whole place) , otherwise if you have an open average size room(not the master bedroom) this size is perfect! Shipping only took 5-6 days and that's because I had two seperate packages. five days is still fast though and I got this during the christmas season! :O but other than the light is a huge hit (; friends and family lover it and are even considering one for their room. Plus the price is great for everything you get! the light , the bulb, and the screws to hang it,you can hang the light vertical or horizontaly but i'd prefer to get some nails to hammer into the wall instead of what you are provided with. (:

            It's great but i thought it would cover more. I have house raves every weekend and I have to use this black light, a bulb in the ceiling, an 18 inch on the other side of the room away from the 48 inch and a string of them to light 1 room completely up.[...] worth it.

                    Uh this thing was amazing! I bought two for my basement rave and it was sick. All you gotta do is throw in some nails into a stud pop the light on plug in an extension cord and you're good to go. Makes up for about 3 of the 18 in's. Only reason I saw fragile is I accidentally stepped on it when setting up and I broke off a diode (rare happening) easily exchangeable no problems. Friendly Employees

                              This was the first black light I bought in 4 years and its a great investment. Had it since april of 08 and never had one problem with it. It really is a FLICKER FREE black light. And when its not on it doesnt seek attention but when on it lights up a huge area!

                                    It's a super awesome, 4', easy to use black light. I bought my first one from Spencer's over a year ago, and the BULB HASN'T BURNED OUT YET. I let this sucker run about 3 hours a day, and it still hasn't burned out. I just recently purchased my second black light, which was just as good. However, I broke the bulb when the fixture fell due to my own lack of handy-man skills. [...]So, please, be careful with your bulbs.

                                      I USE THIS BLACKLIGHT ON THE WALL, ABOUT 7 FEET HIGH, IN CONJUNCTION WITH 2 OTHER 48" LIGHTS EACH
                                      LOCATED 7 FEET HIGH ON TWO OPPOSITE WALLS. THEY
                                      ARE OUTSIDE, UNDER A ROOF WITH SEVERAL BLACKLIGHT
                                      POSTERS HANGING UP UNDERNEATH.
                                      THEY ALL WORK FINE. THE ONLY THING IS NONE OF THE POSTERS ARE REALLY REALLY BRIGHT. ONLY WHEN YOU HOLD UP A BLACKLIGHT RIGHT IN FRONT DO THE
                                      POSTERS REALLY LOOK BRIGHT. (AND BETTER)
                                      JUST THE WAY THEY ARE I SUPPOSE.
                                      FOR THE FIRST TIMER WALKING INTO THE DARKENED
                                      ROOM AND THEN I TURN THE LIGHTS ON THEY LOOK
                                      GREAT.

                                      Purchased for my son to use in his bedroom. He loves it. Keep it up high when installing so the bulb won't get hit.

                                        It's great for the price and length but it's not as powerful as the other ones I own. I put it above my posters and only the top half of the poster seems lit. Wish it was brighter.

                                          I bought two of these for a kids' disco/bounce house party in our basement. I hung white streamers from the ceiling over the bounce house, cut out whacky neon shapes for the walls, threw in some colorful balloons, and told the kids to wear white. Awesome. The kids' said it was the "best party ever" and couldn't wait to come back to our basement. Only warning: these aren't that powerful, so I had to shine them right on the bounce house area for any effect. They won't light up a big space. But for this price it was a great purchase.

                                            This light just barely gets the bottom of a poster to glow if hung from the top. Althought its only 5 bucks more expensive than an 18in, its worth the value

                                              I use this every time I have people over or if I'm hanging with a girl alone. They like it, especially when they're drunk. It's just a fun thing to have! The only complaint I have is that the screws used to mount it to the wall kinda suck. I ended up having to tape the blacklight to my wall for it to stay in place.

                                                Nice design an is flicker free. Flicker free can be hard to get with blacklights sometimes. I recommend this one instead of the 18 inch.The light isn't as bright as it should be(17 watt), but you can replace the bulb with a 40 watt($11.27) at [...] like I did. Now it completely rock!

                                                  The light works well! Easy to install. Does well for half of small dorm room. I am considering getting another to give me a full effect! Be sure no other light exists.
