INITIALLY-I thought there was a ballast problem but after contacting the Manufacturer-they diagnosed the issue as a faulty bulb..And sent me a new one at NO charge. OTHER than my inexperience in using this type of enclosed-ballast-light, I had NO clue about the "care and feeding" of an HPS bulb.(DO NOT TOUCH 'EM with your BARE hands)
In an eclosed environment-this light is only a bit luke-warm, but beneficially so. A small fan, pointed AT the light is adequate.NEVER USE THIS in an enclosed are (like a TENT) unless you also have a fan.
It is quite efficient, VERY SILENT and uses VERY LITTLE power. (As much as a 150 watt incandescent bulb)
It does NOT have, nor does it need, a glass cover-THOSE are only to be used with an MH light.
It is light enough (about 9 pounds) to be hung directly over your starters or sprouts.
(The ONLY comment is that I WISH it came with the "yo-yo" hangers that allow this to be moved up or down effortlessly-
BUT in light of the FREE BULB-this is one truly awesome value~
Sunsystem = 1.5a or less after 60 min running
Hydrofarm = 3.8a or MORE after 60 min running
So the sunsystem takes less to make 150w of light much less! The Hydrofarm takes about 300-400w to make 150w of light. The ballast is consuming most of the power...
Well first off I'll start with some information since there seems to be some confusion on that. On start up the electric use is vague at best my best guess is 380w. Now once warm the manual clearly says it runs at 165w continuously. So for those worried there gonna get screwed on a inefficient light don't worry. It should cover an area of 2'x2' growing area. Depending on conditions in your grow room you can mount it over your canopy anywhere form 8-18". Overall temperatures in the room and how hardy your plants will decide that.
Now why did I rate it so high? Simple bang for the buck. The quality of the construction is fantastic. I saw the 9lbs shipping weight and somehow expected it to be a poorly builtor flimsy but decided to give it a chance given other reviews. In person it actually feels heavier, although I'm sure that's just in my head,but I had to rethink how I was going to hang. I ended up going with a cheapo $8 chain from Home Depot and some freebie hardware I had around the house. The reflector does a good job. It is dimpled for best effect. The cooling fins keep it running cool to the touch on the housing (never touch the bulb for any reason). For those in hotter running rooms or cabs it looks like a computer fan could be rigged on the vents on the light side. Haven't tried but something to think about. Power cord is nice and thick (120v).
I have heard from others more experienced with hps the bulb could be better but coming from CFLs to this there is a huge difference. I would buy it again and would recommend it to anyone.
