Huh. I'm surprised that no one responded to you.

I haven't heard anything outright bad about this system. I know it's a good bargain way to light your room.

I know I've been considering them, but I'm also looking at the Advanced Nutrient lineup too. I already have their nutes, so it seemed like a good way to extend the love. Looks like they have a lot of possibilities, including this:

90,000 LUMEN OUTPUT, A VICIOUS FIRESTORM OF RED LIGHT FOR AN EXPLOSIVE FLOWERING STAGE, AND THE QUICKEST STRIKE TIME EVER RECORDED... NOW IN A 600 WATT HPS BULB.
At a massive 90,000 lumens, your Red Diamondâ„¢ 600 Watt HPS bulb gives you complete bragging rights over any other 600 Watt bulb available... because it has the highest initial lumen reading of any bulb in its class.
- You'll enjoy a powerfully enhanced flower spectrum that will give you over 99% color consistency thanks to a unique gas combination that blasts out a firestorm of red light!
- Your 600 Watt Red Diamondâ„¢ bulb is ready to work - immediately. With a strike time of less than 4 minutes, the Red Diamondâ„¢ 600 Watt bulb reaches full lumen output faster than any other bulb in its class. For best results pair with a BaddAss Low Frequency Digital Ballastâ„¢.
- Your Red Diamondâ„¢ 600 Watt HPS bulb is protected in an exclusive "cocoon" of packaging that you'll only get with BaddAss Bulbsâ„¢. Plus, each one of your Red Diamondâ„¢ bulbs comes in an Oil Guardâ„¢ protective removable sleeve which will prevent the oils from your hands from ever coming in contact with the surface of the bulb. This is important because oils from hands and fingers can cause hot spots that severely damage a bulbs surface, even worse, in some cases leading to bulb rupturing or exploding.
- Your Red Diamondâ„¢ 600 Watt HPS bulb is painstakingly built and held to strict AQL standards. If even one slight defect is found on even one bulb, we go all the way back to the beginning of QC to our visual, functional test and burn-in stages and go through the whole testing and qualification/approval process over again.

The idea of it being switchable is a cool idea too.

I'd love to see your experience once you use them in your rooom.

AN is sort of my Apple - buy one and soon you're buying it alll LOL

WARNING!!!
I have one of those cool tubes. Be careful with the reflector. It has the tendency to fall off. It can fall onto the plants. If your gonna use it secure it with duct tape or something.

That setup from AN sounds pretty good too decrim! The one pictured above was what was on ebay, i actually ended up just going to htg's website and ordering off of there. I got a slightly different setup, different hood and bulb. I went with a 6" easy cool hood and a 600w Agromax bulb. Though it is a cheaper setup its what was in the budget and so far i have been VERY happy with it! Ballast runs really cool, quick startup, temps stay down. You can click on my grow link to see how its been doing, have had it running for about 2 weeks now.:)

Phew! Well good thing i went with a different hood! Thanks for the heads up though
