    What's the budget and space requirements? There are many very good 600's with cool tubes and great ballasts. I would use 2 600's over one 1k any day, if initial cost was not an issue.

    i want for build myself a 4x4x6 maybe 7 grow box, well i probably would go about 300$-400$ that seemed like you could get a pretty decent light, maybe a vented hood or the cool tubeim not to sure yet. i also looked at the lumatek digi's they seem nice but i have read some ppl having problemes that may be just the lemon outta the bunch.

    boss you gotta dope lil show my friend

    I was recently in the market for a digital ballast a few months back. I did end up researching and ultimately purchasing (2) 600 watt lumateks. Nothing but praise so far. You can check out the thread I started awhile back here

    600 Watt is the best amount of light for the money compared to a typical 400, energy wise it utilizes all of it's light potential in full! I think even Jorge Cervantes mentions in one of his very early print additions about this being a better light and best use of lumens for the cost to run it compared to the 400 or a higher watt! two of these would be an excellent flowering room.
