I've got them. I built a "viewing wall" that uses three of the Solux lamps. They work fine and deliver a nice pleasing light that is difficult to tell from real daylight. I use them for viewing work prints from an Epson 7600.
I would warn you away from Solux's track light fixtures, however. I bought a set, had to return them because they couldn't hold position (they rotated when they got hot), got another set which also rotated, and had the added bonus of the paint blistering due to the heat. So I returned them also. The Solux people were less than helpful with this.
Bottom line is that they are just cheap fixtures. They also have the annoying property of bouncing the stray light from the bulbs out the back of the fixture onto the ceiling (a real glare source). End the end, I replaced the cheap Solux fixtures with Halo L2770PX fixtures. Much nicer, but more expensive. At least they stay pointed where I point them, the paint doesn't blister off, and they contain the stray light.
The Solux people make a great D50 lamp. Everything else I would stay away from. Of course, YMMV.
