Comments: This is an excellent ballast that will drive any bulb out there. Including radium and phoenix bulbs. I like the design, the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is it came with no adapter or pigtail to wire in or hook up your own lights with this. I solved my problem with wiring in my own pigtail, I made it reversible in case I ever do get a pigtail to fit this ballast. I read reviews that other reeflex ballast came with an adapter, mine did not. I would recommend this ballast to anyone with some wiring experience to know how to properly adapt this unit to your brand of lights.

Comments: I ordered two of the 250w version of this ballast to replace the originals that came with my aqua medic fixture. Took them home, removed them from the box, plugged in the power cables and powered them up. Worked perfectly. Really like the design and quality of these ballasts. Very quiet as well. Ballasts come with a really nice harness adapter that wasn't mentioned in the description.

Comments: The Aqua Medic Reeflex Cube HQI Magnetic Ballast is a M80 Ballast. I'm sure most of you have heard of a m80 ballast, because they should be used for Radium bulbs. Just a heads up for those of you wanting to buy this ballast for a Sunlight Supply Reflector, you will need to cut the wire ends because they were not built to support each other.
These ballasts run Radium bulbs a bit whiter than I would like, but that can easily be fixed with HO/VHO lighting.
5 stars, I would recommend these ballasts!
