One time light featured

Installation and Operation This light was simple to install and went right into operation. There are three cords that come off the fixture and only two that go into the wall, one switched for the T-5's and an unswitched connection for the halides. I don't understand why there are no controls for the halides but in reality all the lights will be on timers so its not a big deal. The shortest cord by far is for the T-5's so there needs to be an outlet near by and there is tons of cord for remotely mounting the halides.

Performance vs. Expectations This light rocks. I had high expectations for this fixture, although i could not find a lot of information on it, and it performs. I currently have 20k bulbs for halides and atinics for the T-5's. Currently the tank is a little blue for me right now so i will be shifting to Aquiline 10K's to whiten it up a bit.

Value for money This light really performs. I was hesitant at first about how well it was going to perform biased on how much it cost, and it is expensive, but i am very satisfied. When looking at this particular fixture make sure you know what your getting because it is sold in several forms. Most i have seen do not come with the metal halide ballast, and others dont come with bulbs. After adding all the additional features it ends up costing 1100 or so dollars, not so cheap.

Customer Support I have not used customer support up to this point so thats good.

Liked about it The top three things i like about this light are 1. solid construction, no wobble or flimsy material. 2. Great finish, the hole thing is well put together and powder coating is perfect. 3.Quiet fans. No racket here.

Didn't like I wish the power cord for the T-5's was about 2 feet longer but making due. I would also like to see a switch for the halides, but its on a timer so no big deal.....
