I ordered the JSV2 2' grow light jump start system and it arrived pretty quickly and set up was a breeze. All you really need is a screw driver and common sense. I put it together in about 10 minutes and the pully system for the light comes already assembled and works great.

It also comes with a 24 watt T5 6400k High output fluorescent bulb which is already installed upon arrival. The 6400k bulb is a very efficient low heat bulb which is designed to promote overall growth in the plant. Because it is a low heat emitting bulb you can place the light source a couple inches from the plants to prevent the loss of light.

This is not a complex system, it is simple and efficient. For the price it would be hard to find a package which comes with a stand, a reflective fixture, a good bulb, easy adjustment, and easy assembly. It is a good first step into the grow light world which is vast and and many times confusing. I also found that it isn't really that flimsy. The product isn't industrial grade but the light fixture is sturdy and so is the stand if you put it together correctly.

I will be growing venus fly traps when they arrive and I have researched grow light systems quite a bit. This system will only cost me $1.50 cents to run per month. The calculation can be done by taking the 24 Watts and dividing it by 1000 to get KW. Then multiply that number by how much the electric company charges per Kilowatt hour. That is the price it will cost to power the light for one hour. Then multiply that number for one hour by however many hours you will run it during the day. Then just multiply the cost of one day by 30 days and you have how much it will cost you to run the system for a month.

For example here is mine 24W/1000 = .024

Size Name: 4-Foot
Just received and assembled this product today. I'm not sure why others have posted about poor quality and flimsy construction of this product. I am very satisfied with the construction and sturdiness. This product is exactly what I expected for the price, product description, and pictures.

I did notice that there are 3 very similar hydrofarm 4 foot grow systems listed on amazon, with a $15 price-range difference. This is the most expensive of the three. The only difference I can tell from the written description is that this product is described as having a premium light fixture. The pictures look the same. One of the other 4 foot hydrofarm systems received a few positive reviews.

Assembly required a philips head screwdriver, pair of pliers, and about 5 minutes of my time. One screw is used to connect each of the two vertical supports to the base cross-bars. Due to the shape and construction of the parts, this fit is tight and secure. Then each of the vertical side bars slips into the top piece (metal button is pressed and then releases into a hole on the top piece). Then you attach the light fixture itself, by hooking nylon string with s hooks attached to the top to either end of the light fixture. Pliers are used to close s hooks. The light is raised and lowered with the nylon string, very similar to a heavy venetian blind. It would be nice if the nylon string were a tad thicker, but it is sufficient for the job.

Overall, I am very happy with this product and would recommend it.

Update as of Jan 2015: I saw that my customer images were removed so asked a couple of friends to look under their account to make sure that it wasn't just me. They confirmed that the images were gone. The images showed how 2 of these lights can be put up back-to-back and were uploaded and shown for years. I'm not even able to add back the images. Amazon has removed these offensive images for your benefit. Acts like this by Amazon are why they have become my last choice for purchases and why I don't do reviews any more. Old review follows:

I'm re-writing my review because issues mentioned in it previously are no longer issues. I have 2 of these now. I've uploaded 3 customer images to show how 2 of these can work together. One is an older design that uses two T12 bulbs, a pull rope for on/off switch and pull strings on the side for height adjustment. The newer design that is selling now is much better. The on/off switch is on the power cord. The height adjustment is much simpler using a friction/slip knob on a thicker cord. This newer design also uses only one T5 bulb.

I use this for growing vegetable plants from seeds until they're ready to go outside. I have seen reviews that say that this fixture doesn't supply enough light for seedlings and that is not true. For seedlings, adjust the light so that it's as close to your plant tops as possible without touching them (no more than 1 inch from the light). The closer the better. Keep your light(s) on for 16-18 hours a day. I use a timer to turn my lights on and off. Adjust your light height once or twice a day as your plants grow, always keeping the light close to the plant tops but not touching. Touching the light for a period of time will burn your plants. I do not shorten the time that my light is on as the plants grow.
