MH Bulb question
    #258810 - 08/02/09 03:05 PM (7 years, 4 months ago)

I just bought this bulb at home depot and was wondering if anyone has experience with this particular make or model.  I've got a Galaxy Digital ballast and sun systems hood/reflector.  400 watts.  I am not 100% sure the bulb is compatible with the ballast/hood.  It looks like a regular mh bulb that would work to me.  I just am not sure about the ANSI M59/E ballast.  Nowhere on the Galaxy ballast manual or box did it mention that and my brief research wasn't too successful.  thanks for any help!

If the bulb fits, I think it would work.

I'm no expert here.

one of those $25 Home depot bulbs worked fine for 2 days in my Lumatek Digital balast. But then I got my Son Agro bulb and returned it. You should be fine though unless you notice dimm light output or an overly hot ballast.

Thanks guys!  Although I spent $42 and not $25.  I thought it'd be around 25 so i was shocked.  They didn't have a large selection.  I just plugged it in and it seems to work just fine.  It lit up my room brighter than a strobe light that doesn't flicker.  So I think I'm good to go on that.  Thanks for your input fellas!
