Great!!! Product Review by BRIAN ROWAN (Posted on 4/9/10)

Excellent!

Comments: Awesome amount of light to compliment my 250w MH. Great price too. Instillation was a snap, but does not come with stand offs. Luckly these were to replace my VHOs so i already had them! Worth the investment because i can cut the amount of time I have the MH on.

Great!

Comments: After using halides for so many years, I decided to give the T5s another go. I had my reservations, but I was optomistic after reading so many good things about about Giesemann. The ballasts are nice, you are able to chose one bulb or two on each ballast. The directions are easy to follow, if you can follow a line, you can wire these ballasts. The end caps are water proof, a defenate plus, but you are not able to screw them into a hood from the bottom side of the hood, only the top side. So I drilled a few holes in them and sealed them with silicone. The reflectors, at almost three inches are a bit wide for my taste, I do however like the facets. I can see shimmering from the side of the tank, so that was an unexpected bonus. They dont give you enough wire to properly wire it. There was about three feet of wire and going from the front bulb in the hood to the balast was not possible, but not a big deal. The wireing on the plugs are not one solid piece like the rest of the wireing for the endcaps, if I had to guess, plugs were supplies by MD, they were not in the Giesemann box. The wire that was supplied was a different color than what was shown on the ballast, but that is just nit-picking...as long as you keep everything consistant, you will be fine. Each reflector was 31" long, but when the bulbs are 33", that doenst make that big of a difference. All in all I am very pleased with this purchase, my grips are not major, or really that serious. Would I buy it again, absolutley.

So far so good Product Review by BRIAN (Posted on 4/1/10)

Great!

Comments: I installed the kit very easily and everything looked great. About the only source of confusion was finding the right screws to use in the tapped mounting holes on the bottom of the end caps. The size was not provided in the documentation and was impossible to find online anywhere. After some very careful trial and error at the hardware store, so I wouldn't wreck the fragile plastic socket, I determined the thread to be 4mm metric. Good info to share in case anyone buys this kit and ends up with the same confusion. All in all though, its a great kit for what I needed. Not as versatile or expandable as an IceCap ballast but the price was definitely right to sacrifice a little. For the price of the kit, the ballast was pretty much free, which leaves me the option to get a 660 later if I need to go bigger and not feel bad about it.

Great!

Comments: I basically liked this product; however, I would like to add that the kit did not come with mounting plates for the end caps, nor the screws to mount the caps. Fortunately, I had some old T 12 end caps that I had saved and used them. They should recommend purchasing separate plates and mounting screws which don't come with the kit, just like they state that light bulbs are not included. Once I went beyond this inconvenience, the product worked fine. I would recommend it, and the price is right.

Great!

Comments: as i have not installed it yet i cannot give any thoughts on the performance of the lighting system. however, i can tell you from everything i'm reading this is high quality stuff. i have ofcourse looked at the setup and can tell it appears easy to install. the instructions would be a little on the weak side if someone were less proficent with building things. they could have also made it a little easier if some installation hardware were included. i also wish that somewhere in the description of this product they would have put some measurements on the screen. the reflectors are 3" wide which means i am going to have to do a modification to my canopy when i install. i know it sounds like i am complaining alot but overall i am happy so far, but the real test is going to come next weekend when i get it working.
