A or B?
    #520697 - 01/29/11 12:47 PM (5 years, 10 months ago)

Damnit, I'm doing all I can to get myself a 400w HPS setup. I've narrowed it down to 2 possible purchases:

Here we have choice A).

http://www.htgsupply.com/Product-HTGSupply-400-watt-High-Pressure-Sodium-Grow-Light.asp

A well known grow supply store.

Here we have choice B).

http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Switchable-Ballast-Reflector-GYO-2002/dp/B003810CVA

Not a well known store HOWEVER, it is a digital switchable ballast, and comes with both a MH and HPS bulb.

:confused: After shipping on HTGSupply, its the same price as the one on Amazon...

Comments?

Why should that mean it isn't real?

B and I would get an air cooled reflector.

I also would go with B out of those two selections. 1. Because it has the digital ballast rather than the magnetic. These are more energy efficient and they run at a cooler temperature. 2. Because you get both the bulbs with the package...

But I also would agree with Muse, an air-cooled hood seems to be the best way to go, imo. This is the light I'm planning on ordering when I'm ready. I know its 1k, not 400, but you get the idea...

these are $300 but are also 1000w. they may have a 400w version for alot cheaper.  they come with the bullbs and a air cooled hood +timer + hangers

Thanks, but I went with A, simply for the warranty.

Right, but after reading the reviews and emailing the company, waiting 7 days to hear back from them, I went with HTGSupply. They replied to my emails instantly and warrantee the bulb and ballast for a long time.

AND pay return shipping if its DOA.

There is definitely something to be said for a good warranty...

They all make the electric bill go up. Most of them do the same precise thing. Their are many companies that make them. What could they be?
