Easy upgrade Product Review by Tek (Posted on 2/21/11)

Excellent!

Comments: I needed some extra Actinics to supplement my MH lights and create a dawn and dusk setting. This helped lower my electricity cost and the corals are less shocked when the lights come on. The wires plugged easily into the sockets and the wiring diagram is not hard if you follow the color coding. The lights are meant to be set on a timer for the best effect. I have had it up and running for 7 months with no problems. It has been hot in the summer so I may pick up another 2 sets of these and get rid of my MH bulbs completely.

great retro kit Product Review by WILLIE MCDARIES (Posted on 2/18/11)

Excellent!

Comments: this system is awesome,I got 2 of the 2x54w kits and love 'em,anybody can wire these things up,the directions are very clear,it's a nice colored picture so it's made just for dummies like me :D
the kit is packaged very well and everything you need is in the box,except bulbs of course :D some of the reviewer say their ballast is hesitant to come on,I think they're very fast,within a fraction of a second,I'm very well satisfied with mine and would recommend them to any one

Don't Waster your time Product Review by Rob (Posted on 10/25/09)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: I read the afore mentioned reviews but still decided to buy these? Why, I thought I was a DIY kinda guy. Boy, was I wrong. It took my over 9 hours of my valuable time to figure this piece of junk out. The directions were lousy. The cord is way too short and there is NO on / off switch so they expect you to pull the cord everytime.. I ended up going to the local hardware store and wiring in my own marine off/on switch but even now the lights/ballast take way too long to turn on, sometimes they don't at all and I have to reach under my canopy and wiggle wires ( all of which I have checked and re-checked 15 times). Don't waste your time and money! Apply it to a pre fab which already has on/off switches, fans etc built in. I wouldn't recomend these even to my worst enemy...

Great!

Comments: The product is great and easy to use. I do get a delay with turning on these lights as compared to the Ice cap balast I have. It is 1 second behind in start up but thats no big deal im just being picky.
I only gave it 4 stars because of the lack of instructions. It gave me a picture diagrahm but I wish there was more. I am not electric inclined and this was my first attempt and I wish directions were better. But I got it done

bad connections Product Review by KEVIN SMOCK (Posted on 9/20/07)

Average

Comments: Well it's a good retro system but I'm still having problems with the connections. Half the time the lights don't want to come on because there isn't a good connection between the lights and the end caps. I have to wiggle them to get them to work. I know it's not the wiring because I've checked it three times. It might just be my bad luck. But once they are on... perfect.
