I don't have them, but I've heard good things about Kino Flo lights.

The ones I've had the best luck with are the 6500 degree Kelvin CFL bulbs. They produce 1600 lumens with 100 watt equivalent output. With my camera set on Auto white balance, they look absolutely perfect. They produce wonderful flesh tones for portraits, too. I really like the fact that they give off very little heat, so my studio doesn't get overly hot.

I get mine at Walmart, with a 4 pack for less than $10.00.
