Light pricing question
    #352919 - 01/25/10 10:34 AM (6 years, 10 months ago)

I have been doing some research on the best lighting types to use and have decided to go with a HID system and was wondering what prices every one else is paying for their systems etc. I was considering this Ebay add here http://cgi.ebay.com/1000W-HPS-MH-Bulb-Ballast-Ballast-Grow-Light-System_W0QQitemZ230427071348QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item35a6861374 Thought it looked like a decent deal but decided to get some input from experienced shoppers for these types of goods first :wink: thank you all in advance.

I think that's a fine deal

You get bulbs for veggin and one for flowering...A hood...The ballast looks nice as well

Edit: But I would look in to a nice hood at some point those are extremely inefficient.

Cool thanks for your input. As far as a hood goes what should I look for? I am assuming your talking about the reflector that houses the socket and bulb correct me if I am wrong. So umbrella hoods are not to great?

I prefer a hood that can be exhausted, like a cool tube.

Any hoods with a white matte finish will be best for reflection purposes...All of those metal hoods create hot spots and they are just a pain in the ass.
